Cancelled Shenmue 1 & 2 Remakes Revealed by Digital Foundry

Monday, October 15th, 2018

Digital Foundry have managed to get their hands on some work-in-progress footage of a cancelled Shenmue 1 & 2 remake project. Unlike d3t’s Shenmue I & II, this would have been a complete remake of the game with more detailed assets, textures and lighting. Check out the video below to see a comparison of this footage versus Shenmue I & II:

There’s a full article that breaks down what is being shown in the footage and what it does differently to the eventual release of Shenmue I & II. There’s also some speculation as to why these remakes were cancelled in favour of the upscaled HD ports we eventually got. Digital Foundry suggests the remakes were cancelled due to budget restraints and delays.

Shenmue III Delayed to 2nd Half of 2018

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

shenmue3

The inevitable Shenmue III delay has arrived! Shenmue III will now release in the 2nd half of 2018.

It had previously been slated for a December 2017 release but as was previously revealed, Shenmue III was not scheduled for an appearance at this year’s E3 which put a 2017 release into doubt.

Yu Suzuki announced the delay himself in the latest Kickstarter update and has said, “By utilising new technologies, we have been able to discover new possibilities and expressions. In many ways, the game has become bigger and more beautiful than I initially expected. We do, however, need more time to deliver the game to you.”

Shenmue III will not be published by SEGA but instead by Sony. The game will eventually launch on PC and PS4.
