In a feature in Japanese magazine Famitsu, Sega has said that it is still interested in making another installment of its cult adventure game series, Shenmue, but it is worried whether it would sell well.

According to Sega, the first two games in the series didn't sell as well as expected, but if it gets the opportunity to make it, perhaps in the form of a console exclusive funded by either Microsoft, Nintendo or Sony, then it would love to resurrect the franchise.

According to IGN, the original Shenmue cost an $70 million to make, which meant that it would have to have been purchased twice by every single Dreamcast owner in order for Sega to turn a profit.

With 67 million Wii units shipped, maybe Nintendo could be the knight in shining armour?

I loved the first 2. One of the main reasons I purchased the Dreamcast years ago.

Might have a look to see how much they go for these days with Shenmue 1+2 :)
deffo would buy this i have shenmue 2 for my xbox 360 :) loved them on the dreamcast
Was one of my most cherished games on the DC. Loved the first one and also have the 2nd on the dreamcast. Some say it was way ahead of its time, but lets hope Sega give the series the respect it deserves and completes the trilogy :D
I will queue outside in the cold to buy shenmue 3. I agree with fezfezed, I think the DC was a little ahead of its time, its best console I've ever owned just ahead of the Snes and megadrive :D
