Third time's the charm for Shenmue
The wait is over. In 2001, Sega released the open-world adventure Shenmue II for the Dreamcast. It was the sequel to what was then the most expensive game developed of all time, and at release it was well received by critics and fans. Yet, somehow, Shenmue II didn't become a smash hit, leaving a third entry in the series languishing in development. Shenmue creator Yu Suzuki finally left Sega in 2011. It seemed like Shenmue III would never happen.
