Released to Sega Dreamcast in 2000 and 2001, Shenmue I & II combine an incredible story and several elements that made the franchise a success and one of the most beloved games of Dreamcast. The series features elements of action / adventure games, RPG, research, mini-games and others, all in a single game (genre called FREE: Full Reactive Eyes Entertainment). It is set in an open world, with cycles between day and night, climate changes, NPCs living their lives, bringing a level of interactivity never seen before in a game before, in addition to many other details that made this franchise a pioneer and perhaps the basis for many games we know today.
The game features the young Ryo Hazuki who witnesses the murder of his father at the hands of a man named Lan Di who is head of a Chinese organization involved in robberies and other criminal acts, one of which is the theft of a mirror known as Dragon Mirror ( Dragon’s Mirror). Now, Ryo seeks to fulfill his vow to avenge his father’s death, but to do so he will need to discover Lan Di’s whereabouts by starting his adventure around Yokosuka, Japan and then leaving for Hong Kong, China (Shenmue 2).
Shenmue III will be released on November 19 for PRAÇA and Playstation 4.
