Shenmue 2 - Six Discs?

11.27 6pm EST

According to rumors out of Tokyo this morning, AM2 is reportedly focusing on the development on Shenmue 2 for the Dreamcast. If initial reports are to be believed, the game is slated for release next summer in Japan. Furthermore, the game will weigh in at an estimated six (6) discs. As previously reportedly, the proposed storyline and setting will take place in Hong Kong. Despite repeated attempts, Sega representatives have refused to comment thus far.

I think I read somewhere that the next Shenmue is going to be six disks like you said but it is going to encompass the second third and fourth parts all in one, then again i have a bad short term memory.(excellent long term memory though)

We all knew this was coming. If Shenmue sold well in the US (it did) then a shenmue2 announcement had to follow.

In the latest ODCM, Yu Suzuki hinted that the US release of Shenmue2 isn't far off. could they be localizing the speach while the game is being developed?

Fuck the Japanese! He should concentrate on releasing it here first. The US has supported the DC the most, and still, we get the shaft! This is bullshit i tell you, BULLSHIT!

the only thing that i find is bullshit is how long it takes to translate the game when they know its going to be released in the us. if its going to take a long time, then, start working on the translation before the game is finished.

one other thing i liked that Yu Suzuki stated in a interview was that shenmue was to virtua fighter as shenmue 2 was to virtua fighter 2.

I agree with you Porno. The japanese shit on DC and Sega anytime they can. My fellow US gamers are what is keeping SEGA afloat. Not the fucking dating sim playing Japs!! Fuck'em! Oh, and japs, stick that Tomagotchi shit up your ass!

This is good but it appears that Virtua Fighter X and F355 Challenge 2 may not even come out in 2001 or at the very end of 2001.

I just finished Shenmue and would just like to thank Mr. Suzuki. This is one of the only games I've ever played that my girlfriend actually enjoyed watching!

Really? My wife said "This is a pretty boring game isn't it?"

I said "Yep...I'm actually falling asleep".

I was.

Disc3 was great though. You could actually toss disc1 and 2 out your window and not miss anything.
