The sega saturn shenmue prototype


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

Just a warning this post may contain possible spoilers about shenmue 1 & 2 (probably not but just wanted to throw that out there is you still haven't played them.)

I am a big fan of the Shenmue series, pretty stoked this 3rd entry has just released. In my trip down memory lane I remembered the video you unlock after beating the second game that has the rare play footage from the sega saturn.  If anyone hasn't seen it, theres a good youtube video here.

So in remembering this awesome video I started to ask myself if there were any playable demos that had surfaced of this game.  In a brief google search I was able to find this post, the user Anthaemia.  has some really good information on there, short answer is no.

Anyways, being new to this forum I just figured I would ask and see if anyone here had any additional information on these prototype or development versions of Shenmue for Saturn?  There is mention in the post of an individual from Vietnam who was supposedly working to finish the prototype and release it. From what I can find, as I start to do research, is that it's unclear if these claims were true.

Does anyone know if a demo has ever surfaced of this game? I figured I would ask if anyone here has any additional information on this? I tried to check out some of the other links in that forum post but I am unable to access them.  I could probably try to use the internet history and view them there, but this will be more fun. Plus with the release of Shenmue 3, I'm sure that I am not the first person to be wondering about this old topic again.  (Maybe I am wrong...lol)

Well hopefully we can get some more updated information here and if I am late to the party please point me in the direction of some more updated info than what I have from 2011.
