Mark Cerny Yu Suzuki shenmue 3

Yes, we know. You heard this a gillion times, but every time the name Yu Suzuki meets the magic word Shenmue 3 everyone gets super hyped!

So here we are. In fact seems like Yu Suzuki (you know, the creator of Shenmue, but also of Out Run, After Burner and other SEGA evergreens) is still thinking -or let’s say, trying- to make Shenmue 3. Indeed Suzuki-san has been caught talking (and posing for the picture above) with Mark Cerny, that is PlayStation 4 lead architect…so maybe…well you know what we mean.

Here’s the original tweet by Meggan Scavio, that suggests Suzuki and Cerny are talking about some kind of strategy for the game:

But this is not all folks, indeed here’s another tweet by Brandon Sheffield that met Yu Suzuki during last week’s GDC:

So, looks like something is happening…we’ll see. Stay tuned and finger crossed!

Yep, you heard it so many times in the past twelve years, but everytime it was just bullshit…probably also this time, but still, here is your news about a possible making of long-waited Shenmue 3.

Indeed seems that Yu Suzuki, acclaimed developer of the Shenmue franchise for SEGA, is seriously thinking about a Kickstarter project to fund the development of Shenmue 3. The news comes from Sebastien Abdelhamid, a french journalist for CANAL+ , that met Suzuki at the Monaco Anime Game Show. Here’s the tweet about the rumor.

(TRANSLATION: Yu Suzuki just said that he is thinking about a Kickstarter to fund the Shenmue 3 developement ! #MAGS)

We don’t know if this will really happen, but we hope so…still, we are a bit worried about SEGA and its ownership of all the copyrights for the franchise.

Stay tuned!
