While things have slowed down somewhat we were treated to a raft of Shenmue News over the last few weeks! We have curated all the news below for all of your Shenmue needs!
Shenmue The Animation Announced
In perhaps the biggest news of the month, it was announced on September 4th that Shenmue would be getting an Anime. This is a collaboration between Crunchy Roll, Adult Swim and Telecom Animation Film, with Yu Suzuki as an Executive Producer. The Anime will contain 13 episodes moving through Shenmue 1 and 2. The project will be directed by Chikara Sakurai.
It’s true! @adultswim and @Crunchyroll are making a 13 episode SHENMUE anime! Yu Suzuki is producing. We’ve been working on it for a while and I’m so excited to finally be able to talk about it! https://t.co/8rMkzVAzax
