Oh, Come on, Sega!

Shenmue the Movie

Instead of giving American and European Dreamcast owners the chance to play Shenmue II, Sega felt that compiling all of the cinemas from Shenmue (Chapter 1) and slapping them together as a movie would be a better use of company resources.

After an upcoming, short stint in Japanese movie theaters, the 90-minute Shenmue: The Movie will be released on Region 2 NTSC DVD on December 21 for a suggested retail price of 4700 yen.  A North American release date has not yet been announced.

About the author


Discovered as a young 'Squatchling in a Pacific Northwest woodland area in the mid-70's, Fatsquatch was soon domesticated and introduced to the fledgling arcade scene, where he became addicted to the magical sights and sounds of gaming. As years passed, his addiction only worsened, and eventually lead to his desire to write about all things gaming from a veteran point-of-view. Hence, Fatsquatch created The Jaded Gamer in 2001, and set about leading it into permanent obscurity.
