Sega Might Actually Be Making Shenmue III



?From Kotaku:

Speaking at a talk during the Game Developer Conference today, designer Yu Suzuki said that he thinks Sega is going to let him make Shenmue III. The audience broke into shouts and applause, and then Suzuki abruptly changed topics.

As a guy who actually imported Shenmue II for Dreamcast, I would like to say — and I mean this from the bottom of my heart — ARGLEBARGLEFUCKINGFUCKYEAH. Also, Duke Nukem Forever is coming out on May 3rd, A Dance with Dragons on July 12th, and Sega might start work on Shenmue III? The world is totally ending in 2012. No fucking question about it.
