Shenmue 3 will be released by the end of 2014

shenmue 3

Yep, we can’t believe it too, but IT IS REAL! Yu Suzuki, after all the false news and the never started Kickstarter campaign, just announced that he found a private funder for the long-waited Shenmue 3!

Thanks to this mysterious benefactor, Suzuki has been able to buy all the unused rights of the Shenmue franchise from SEGA (we’re wondering for how much) and finally get to work on the new chapter of the saga. There are still no details about the development team and/or the precise release timing, but the Japanese designere confirmed that the game will be ready by the end of 2014 and it will be released on the current generation consoles (no words about the Wii U).

Suzuki also said that he’s recruiting talented people for the project, and that he will publish a proper press release, including all contact info for joining Team Shenmue.

So, the wait is over (oh well, it’s yet started) and the game that everybody wants is finally becoming real! Stay tuned for more upcoming infos in the next days.

    A massive load of FUCK YOU to you, April Fools piss takes aren’t funny anymore, especially to a fanbase that’s been teased probably more than any other.

      Dude, did you really believe it? I read an article in 2001 that said Shenmue 3 was confirmed for a release on the dreamcast.

    At this point, we assume this is ALWAYS a joke. April Fool’s or not. I don’t believe any of it until a copy of the game is actually in my hand…. actually not even then. I believe it when I’ve beaten the game.

      Everybody knows that Shenmue 3 will never see the light of day. But keep dreaming about it is free…

    im hurt……I thought it was for real. You crushed my dream

    I thought the wait was finally over, when really it’s just a bunch of assholes teasing us shenmue fans who have been waiting for such a long time. You could say it’s just a game but for me it’s all about escapism, which is something i need after a bad day.

    Hope you die a horrible death

    that was not funny, and it only shows how much time you have on your hands unlike a proper man with a proper job. ya man, fuck yourself, hard…

  16. John Groccia 23 October 2013 at 20:52 #

    I will kill you and your whole family if I ever find out who you are.

    I happened to be looking for info on Shenmue 3 and came across this….and I have to agree with everyone else…fuck you dude. Thanks for actually putting the note that says it’s an April fool’s joke for those who didn’t notice the date this was made, but still, fuck you. My three favorite game series keep getting cancelled/taking a lifetime…Phoenix Wright, Shenmue, and Kingdom Hearts. So given how much time other fans and I have to wait already, getting fake news like this, is truly just cruel.
