Shenmue Gai Social Game Canceled 1 Year After Release

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Spinoff PC game was first new game in Shenmue franchise in 7 years

The official website for Ys Net, the developer of the Shenmue Gai social computer game, announced on December 26 that it has ended service for the game. The message also thanked players for their continued patronage. Sunsoft originally released the game in Japan in December 2010 for the Mobage mobile social gaming platform.

The spinoff game was the first new release for the Shenmue franchise in seven years, although it did not continue the unfinished story of the previous Shenmue games for the Sega Dreamcast console. Ys Net was founded by game creator Yū Suzuki, and Suzuki had produced and directed the title.
