Shenmue

Post by masofdas » Sat Jul 18, 2015 11:11 am

How do guys not have a Shenmue thread especially after E3 when the 3rd was announced and has gone on to be the most successful video game ever on kickstarter.

Have any of you backed or looking forward to.

Personally I haven't, but that's purely because I've never played the series. I hope that gets sorted though, because I'd love to try the original games on the newer systems to drum up hype for III. I'm definitely interested in III, but probably won't play it until I play the first two.

The 3rd does have cinematic shorts of I&II, if SEGA don't do a HD version or even a simple release on PSN would do of the DC versions.

Do you mean a general physical release as it is getting a PS4 & PC physical for $60 and above backers if they wish.

Hang on a sec, does this mean it won't be available on general PS4 disc release?

If that's the case, then i have to say i'm disappointed.

SHENMUE 3 RETAIL RELEASE NOT GUARANTEED
http://uk.ign.com/articles/2015/07/16/s ... guaranteed

id find it a very strange move if they didn't make a physical version as it will sell and sell well, id also love a special edition with the other two games on there as well, they wouldn't even have to "remaster" them id be quite happy with a straight port (no idea how easy that would be)

I'd imagine that the lack of a retail release would purely be down to how cost effective it would be. I'd imagine that most people who are going to get Shenmue III would still buy it, regardless of whether it's retail or download. Releasing a game to retail is so expensive, especially one as niche as Shenmue. I'd imagine that it would be down Sony (or is that SEGA?) on whether there'd pursue that or not, not the developer.

I actually put down money for the kickstarter/ $60 for the boxed PS4 game, I don;t even have a PS4 but I feel like this was one game that absolutely needed my full support.

Shenmue I&II wouldn't be packed as SEGA owns them where Suzuki owns anything going forward, so unless they can strike another deal, it's unlikely and what we heard from Sony the current deal was a pain to sort.

But Corey did say it is getting a general release and that it was bad translation, that backers only get the special backer edition physical release but it was taken backers only get a physical.

I think we will have to wait to near the time to 100% know.

But I'm fine as I pledge a fair bit to it.
