Shenmue 2 Turns 20

Shenmue 2 was first released on Dreamcast on 6th September 2001 in Japan, it came to Europe a few months later. In North America the game was an Xbox exclusive when it arrived in October the following year.

This reminds me that I still have to pick up Shenmue 3, at least for  nostalgic reasons. Not sure the formula works these days…

Shenmue II is a 2001 action-adventure game developed by Sega AM2 and published by Sega for the Dreamcast. It was directed, produced and written by Yu Suzuki. Like the original Shenmue (1999), Shenmue II consists of open-world environments interspersed with brawler battles and quick time events. It features a day-and-night system, variable weather effects, non-player characters with daily schedules, and various minigames. The player controls teenage martial artist Ryo Hazuki as he arrives in Hong Kong in 1987 in pursuit of his father’s killer. His journey takes him to Kowloon and the mountains of Guilin, where he meets a girl who is part of his destiny.
