The lights are on
Fans of the Shenmue series have waited years to see the resolution of Ryo Hazuki's quest for vengeance. Sega has good news and bad news today for those fans. The good news is that they'll see Ryo's first video game appearance in almost a decade. The bad news is that he won't exactly be avenging his father's death...he'll be participating in some good-natured races against Sonic and company.
Remember the forklift sections in the original Shenmue? Like most of you, our first thought during those was "This is all well and good, but how would this forklift fare in a race against Dr. Robotnik and the Samba de Amigo chimp on a Super Monkey Ball course?" Well, that question will be answered in the spring of next year with Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing. Not much is known about the title as of yet, but early trailers and press releases make it pretty obvious that this will be a Mario Kart-inspired racer featuring a host of SEGA characters.

Really... come on Sega... Really!?!?!?!
Argh! Yu Suzuki ... why do you hate us so?
I looked at the title, and then I went: "Wait... What?"
I'm so confused and scared...somebody hold me.
Does anyone here know where I can find some sailors?
How 'bout a game of "Lucky Hit"?
Shenmue 3 in effect
why must i cry?
Hahahaha, I can't help but laugh at this.
This is the game, driving with the fan faves
This is the race, Ryo can switch
He TRIED to kill me with a forklift~
i guess i dodged a bullet but then again..
I was hoping for Lan Di, but I'm still glad to see a Shenmue character join the cast.
uh...wut? so Sega is supposed to try and win the support of heartbroken Shenmue fans...with this? a forklift?
Sega: Sorry no Shenmue 3 but here's a Mario Kart knock off instead. I hope you praise our efforts to make sure Shenmue 3 will never come out because believe us we get tempted to start working on it every day.
........Wow so.....out of place O_o
I'm glad to see Ryo is still alive. I can't believe they have included both the bike and forklift, too funny!
Hilarious. I remember Shenmue I fondly (kind of). LOVE the forklight, not the motorcycle.
*sigh* Trying to follow in Nintendo's footsteps on the Wii again... Please go back to making games like side-scrolling genesis Sonic and Condemned before I start to cry.
Wow, talk about a waste of resources SEGA. Just give us Shenmue 3!!!
