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.

This has got to be the dumbest thing I have ever seen. This is nothing but a slap in the face to all the Shenmue fans out there. I just wish if there never going to make the final game. At least release the story so we can read it and see how it ends. After seeing this Sega will never get another dollar from me, unless they make a new Shenmue.
God did I love the first two games!!! Why must you insist in doing this to us Sega!? Why!?
Sega, this is PATHETIC! I personally have never played a game, but just give fans a sequel, you Nintendo wannabes!
btw, Sega, how about you STOP abusing your fans with crap like this and do something cool like a new Shenmue or a side scrolling Sonic before you get put out of business?! just give the people what they want!!!
