Yu Suzuki working on an unannounced project, thinking about crowd funding Shenmue III

Yu Suzuki has teased that he is ‘working on something’. What is this mysterious project? Is it SEGA publishing related? Who knows, he isn’t speaking about the project right now.

“Just now, I don’t have anything I can say yet,” he smiled. “I can’t announce right now – but I’m making something.”

This isn’t the first time that the idea of crowd funding Shenmue III has come up, we reported a similar story last year. This time? He says he is looking into it. So what genre do you want the upcoming, unannounce Yu Suzuki project to be? A racer? Fighting? His catalog of classic games is spread too wide between genres to please everyone.

    I’d like to see a new transcontinental racing game like Suzuki’s own Rad Mobile. Can’t even remember the last time one was released.

    Maybe a ‘Shenmue-themed’ fighter?
    Like a reverse of the Virtua Fighter RPG that eventually became Project Berkley which became Shenmue, only this time, it’ll be re-reversed, Shenmue becomes a centric fighting game like Virtua Fighter.
    Just imagine it, it could be a spin off in the same mold as Virtua Fighter Kids and Fighters Megamix;

    Characters ~

    Akira ~ Ryo
    Lau ~ Lan Di
    Lion ~ Chai
    Pai ~ Xiuying
    Taka Arashi ~ Dou Nui
    Jefrey ~ Tom Johnson


    Of course, now that we are technically in the next generation with X1 and PS4 consoles, it could be this generations new Virtua Fighter 6, they only release a brand new VF per console generation.

    I do hope it is something original and not Shenmue related.
