    New rumor around is that SEGA is planning to release a bundled edition of Shenmue 1 & 2 on the Wii.. with some extra Wii-specific minigames.. [​IMG]

    Considering that SEGA already did this kind of thing with House of The Dead, I say it's possible.. every rumor has a little of truth in it.

    Never played those games, so if it's real, I would get a chance to try them. Cool! ^^

    So they would only add some wii specific minigames? hmm, House of the Dead is a brainless shooter but Shenmue is a much more serious game, I hope they add at least some side-quests for both games.

    a slight retooling of the controls would be nice as the character runs very "stiff" in that game.

    An old rumor reborn. I remember hearing about this a year or two ago, though they said it would be a Shenmue three pack with the third installment.
    Later it was proven false.

    Sounds like the rumor just got broght up again.

    I'll beleive it when I see it, but till then I dont think they ever will bring that franchise back.

    Hears hoping though, but I wont hold my breath.

    With all the port SEGA made for Wii this could happen [​IMG]

    (I know --> despair [​IMG] )

    = do want.

    Shenmue 1 was amazing, and I never played the second, because I didn't have the DC version at the time, and wanted to continue with my original save.

    and now that I do, my dreamcast is nowhere to be found...

    I can see QTE events with the wiimote being very fun.

    [​IMG] Personally, that's not good news (if true). More Dreamcast games on Wii. It's bad enough when we get PS2 ports, but damn! Not to mention the fact that 2 was already on Xbox. These dudes need to either put that stuff in the vault and forget about it, or consider selling each game as a $5-10 WiiWare title. Otherwise... [​IMG]

    Yeah, I bet that some people would like to play Epic Adventures on WiiWare for 10 bucks... ( [​IMG] Shenmue in 3h)

    Personally I`m very glad, that SEGA is porting some DC-titels. For example I never played Samba de Amigo and now I get the chance to do so.

    And gfx are not that important so ports of games many people might hadn`t the chance to play are a good thing, I guess.

    And come on... it's SHENMUE [​IMG]

    It'll probably be a budget release (if true) for about £30 which ain't that bad to be honest if you consider that if they were on WiiWare or VC they would be 1500 points for each.

    I'd prefer a proper remake, though its a classic for people like me for others it may play a little dated, but then it cost SEGA millions to make it in the first place so maybe they won't want to spend much more.
