Dreamcast Virtua Cop 2 Didn't Need An English Translation, But It Has One Anyway



Quote
Derek Pascarella has kindly created a patch that translates a few pieces of Japanese text into English.
"Announcing my new English translation patch that almost didn't even need to be created," Pascarella says on social media, adding:
As a standalone game, Virtua Cop 2 was only released in Japan. However, Sega Smash Pack: Volume 1 included an English-language version of the game. Mostly because I could, I decided to swap in the English assets from the Smash Pack release to produce a standalone version. Certainly, it adds very little to gameplay experience, other than on-screen messages, VMU save/load messages, level title screens, and VMU metadata.
You can find the ...

Fans Campaign For Shenmue 4 With Times Square Ad In New York



Quote
The ad was placed by a fan site, Shenmue Dojo. The stated goal of Shenmue Dojo's campaign is to "support the continuation of the series and attempt to spread global awareness to find [developer] Ys Net a potential partner for Shenmue 4." The Times Square ad also included the hashtag #LetsGetShenmue4.
In the short term, the campaign successfully managed to get Shenmue trending on X. However, getting a fourth game in the series may still be an uphill battle. Shenmue III debuted to mixed or negative reviews in 2019, and the sales weren't high enough to immediately warrant a sequel. Regardless, the team behind the Shenmue 4 campaign remains optimistic about the franchise's future, as explained in the following message posted on the site. "Thank you to everyone that helped to ...

I think the fact SHenmue III wasn't endorsed by Sega might have been a factor in hinderence.

Imagine Yakuza games, but with all the Sega content removed. Sure it would still be worth while to play, but it wouldn't be the same wouldn't it?

Could be.
Also like the new Yakuza sequel (Infinite Wealth) without Nagoshi's case, SEGA might prefer to make it without Yu Suzuki (since he's not at SEGA anymore).
But since Yu Suzuki wouldn't like that, to respect for him SEGA chose to give Shenmue's sequel right to Yu Suzuki and let him do whatever he wants with it.

It's hard to accept Shenmue is no longer a Sega game when Shenmue was the second best-seller for the Dreamcast next to Sonic Adventure and Ryo Hazuki is recognised as a Sega All-Star.


I admit it be shallow to presume a game didn't sell well due to corporate representation, but would you much rather be collecting Sonic and Sega figurines over... these?

The game didn't sell well because the gameplay felt ... outdated and samey.
I don't really like to compare it to Yakuza but I did still enjoy playing Yakuza series more than Shenmue 3.
Shenmue 1 & 2 was really phenomenal when they're released but Shenmue 3 was really way too late.

Fatal Fury: City of the Wolves - B. JENET and VOX REAPER Trailers

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mv61rOpOYlU

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rRHPunjhqGM









Quote
■B. JENET (Voice Actor: Amber Lee Connors)
Captain of the Lilien Knights, a crew of virtuous pirates. With Kain and Grant weighing on her mind during and after the events of the previous tournament, she makes an altogether uncharacteristic decision: to stay in South Town, if not for a short while. Strangely unable to express her lingering thoughts in words, she sees the upcoming KOF tournament as a true blessing in disguise: finally, a chance to vent her frustrations to both men face-to-face!

■VOX REAPER (Voice Actor: Erik Ransom)
Enter the demon: Vox Reaper. This street assassin is dispatched to hunt down and eliminate Kain R. Heinlein—and though the attempt is thwarted, he emerges from the encounter hardly worse for wear. Kain’s bodyguard Grant, having realized the youth’s talent and potential, decides to take him under his wing thereafter. Afforded a new lease on life, and intent on fulfilling his dying master’s wishes (not to mention Kain’s own grandiose ambitions), Vox stalks the bloody battleground that is South Town—a demon reborn.
