Shenmue HD already finished?

16 March, 2012 - 5:10 pm by

Well according to Gamerzines, not only are Shenmue 1 & 2 HD remakes done, they have been finished for quite sometime. For those who are unfamiliar with the games, Shenmue is a stunning game from SEGA that makes full use of the Dreamcast’s visual capabilities and follows the story of Ryo Hazuki, on a quest of revenge for the death of his father.

The source that gave the information to Gamerzines has ties with SEGA and says that Shenmue HD is real and has been finished for well over a year. As has Shenmue 2 HD. The delay has been put down to when or even if Shenmue 3 will become a possibility.

We don’t tend to post anonymous post stories but with SEGA releasing updates for Jet Set Radio and HD ports appearing left, right and centre these days, then maybe there is some truth behind these reports. After all, Shenmue is on of SEGA’s most requested games for a remake.

We will keep looking into this and bring more details if and when they appear.

    Ahh Shenmue 3 .. The lack of funds talk that they always feed us with is ridiculous considering the fact that Yakuza series is popular enough to have a spinoff in feudal Japan or with zombies.  I just looked up the popularity of the games on Facebook,  Yakuza has 1 page of 25K followers and Shenmue 2 pages of 15K , I bet many Yakuza fans are Yakuza fans because they miss Shenmue, considering the fact Shenmue is 10 years old and half the gamers are too young to have played, also considering that Dreamcast was an unpopular console, Shenmue 3 has the chances of becoming a SMASH HIT.. .and Sega talks about lack of money….
