Virtua Fighter 20th Anniversary Website Appears

Friday, November 29th, 2013

SEGA of Japan have launched a 20th anniversary Virtua Fighter website. You can access the website by clicking here.

The website is looking a bit sparse at the moment with the only real content being a video of the original game, but the fact that SEGA are acknowledging Virtua Fighter’s 20th anniversary must mean they have something up their sleeve. New merchandise? A sale on existing games? A whole new game altogether!? Only time will tell.

Keep an eye on the website as it also contains a blog which is bound to be updated in the near future. Excitement!

SEGA Trademarks Shenmue III But Don’t Get Too Excited UPDATE SEGA Confirms Trademark is Fake

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

SEGA have filed a trademark for Shenmue III. This would be big news if it wasn’t for the fact that publishers do this all the time so that their intellectual properties are protected from usurpers.

The interesting thing is that SEGA are obviously still thinking about the series. If the company are aware of the public’s desire for a sequel then at least that can give us some hope that a sequel might still be in consideration/development.

More on this as we get it as the only source we have for the story is currently down due to the immense traffic they’re receiving.

UPDATE
An image of the trademark information is available on SEGAbits’ Facebook page. You can also see this below:

UPDATE 2
The trademark might also relate to the “postmortem” talk Yu Suzuki is doing at GDC 2014. This will discuss the whole of the Shenmue series an an hour-long talk translated by Mark Cerny. GDC runs from March 17th to the 21st in 2014. Sourced from Gamespot.

UPDATE 3
Blimey! More details: SEGA have trademarked Shenmue III through the company R.G.C. Jenkins & Co. This is the same company who handled the Sonic Lost World trademark. You can find it yourself by going to the OHIM website (click here) and searching for Shenmue III.

UDPATE 4
The Shenmue III trademark might be a fake. The trademark lacks an application reference number which would make the trademark legitimate. A similar hoax was recently registered with this same company on November 14th for Fallout 4. The registration was recently removed after it was proven to be a hoax.

UPDATE 5
SEGA has officially confirmed that the trademark is fake and the listing has now been removed. Full details at from Eurogamer.
