Shenmue HD Might be a Thing
SEGA just registered the domain 'Shenmue HD' which could potentially allude to a remake in the works.
According to SEGABits, the domain was actually registered last September, but SEGA also registered domains for Shenmuegame.com and ShemnueRemastered.com
This would be an interesting twist, seeing as Shenmue 3 is currently in development, after years of SEGA declining to publish the game. Perhaps the positive response from Shenmue 3's Kickstarter has changed SEGA's mind about the franchise.
Only time will tell if we get a Shenmue remaster, but we will keep you posted and stuff. Because that's what we do with some of the news that happens in this industry. Not all of it.
