When will we see Shenmue 3? I'd rather it be a video game but I'll take it even if it were a movie. I just want to know the rest of the story. Its a shame. Both games were so epic, and the 3rd one probably would have been the best of them all (considering it was supposed to be the longest). To this day I still consider Shenmue to be one of my favorite games ever made. It revolutionized many aspects of gaming that we see today. Please Yu Suzuki, your loyal fans have been patiently waiting for far too long now.

I beat Shenmue 2 last year, and really hope someday Mr. Suzuki can finish Shenmue 3.

I think it was originally imagined as a 6 chapter story with 1 game per chapter (so six overall games), but I'm pretty sure they crammed a few chapters of the story into Shenmue 2. After the uber-high costs of development and poor reception for Shenmue 1, not to mention the changing console scene with successive generations emerging and leaving people's save files from the previous game untransferrable to new devices, they probably figured 6 games wasn't commercially viable, and decided to condense the story.

It's a critically acclaimed cult hit though, so there are plenty of fans waiting to find out what happens next (like me).
