New Shenmue Game Announced…For a PC Social Game Service

Yes, the title says it all: a new Shenmue game. However, it’s not for consoles, nor is it even being released on a disc: it’s going to be a premier title for Yahoo’s new “Mobage Service”,  a Japanese PC Social Game Service. The new game, Shenmue City, will be debuting this winter on the service.

The new service, which has been in beta since September 21st, just launched today, and it currently has over 100 titles lined up for release, including games from Tecmo Koei and EA. You can visit the site here.

    All of my rage.

    Why would anyone be angry about this?

    This is the best and first sign in years that Sega Japan (the only ones that matter) haven't relegated the Shenmue to obscurity forever.

    It might not be Shenmue 3 but it is nothing but a good sign.

     According to Famitsu, this is the sequel of the story showed on Shenmue and Shenmue 2. Yes, it's a sequel.

    Should I say it again? IT IS A SEQUEL! Its not a spin-off or something else; its the continuation of that story, that game.

    Now I'm convinced that Sega hates Shenmue completely.

  7. Sharky says:

    ^No, I'm pretty sure they are saying that this is the 3rd Shenmue game. Not supposed to be Shenmue 3 as in… the one we are waiting for.

    *Sharky: -4 CONFIDENCE*

    I pretty much have to side with Sharky on this one. I do not really give a shit what this is, I just wanted more Shenmue.
