Even More Shen Mue Info
Apparently besides showing an english version of Shen Mue at the GDC, Yu Suzuki also revealed that the next installment of Shen Mue won't be a single chapter. Instead it will contain chapters 2, 3, 4, and 5.
Shen Mue 2 will take place in Hong Kong(Remember that cantonese language thing?), and will have Ryo exploring a bay, city, castle, and some yet to be announced locales.
Even more surprising is when asked what 'Shenmue' means, Yu Suzuki responded by saying we will find out in the third installment. That means there are two Shen Mue games down the pipeline. The next of which will have multiple chapters.
Looks like Sega is poised to give Square a run for their money in sequel making.
