Forums - General Discussion - Shenmue anime announced, Crunchyroll and Adult Swim co-production

I love Shenmue as a slice of life game but the story is horrendous. Dunno how an anime will work but if it gets us an ending over waiting 20 years for a terrible part 4. Then fine by me. 3 was an awful game

From what I've seen the game sounds pretty crap and is only known/liked due to it's ridiculousness/use in memes. So... what's the point of an anime based on it?

The game isn't bad, but yes it aged pretty badly.

Mr Puggsly: "Hehe, I said good profit. You said big profit. Frankly, not losing money is what I meant by good. Don't get hung up on semantics"

Azzanation: "PS5 wouldn't sold out at launch without scalpers."

Even as an anime it'll still probably have better gameplay than Shenmue 3.

Well, the rumor about Shenmue is true.

Interesting, he predicted this anime announce a week ago. Dusk Golem truly seems quite reliable to me honestly, he has gotten many leaks right over the last few years, especially about capcom stuff. Saddens me that fanboys tried to slander him a few weeks back when he said that his sources told him that Capcom was struggling to hit native 4K in Res 8 on PS5 but hit it easily on Series X. Didn't realize he was the one behind the Monster Hunter Switch leak, pretty safe bet that is for real then.

Also, PS5 having an event first half of the month means there's a good chance that Sony will finally end the price tag chicken war they were having with MS by announcing PS5 pricing. Worth noting that the MS Xboxing day event where they are expected to announce Series S and reveal S and X pricing is also in September, seems like we'll finally know pricing for both consoles by the end of the month.

In that case Sony should wait till October or reveal price but no preorders and then after MS reveals price they drop and open preorders then!  Hahaha take that Phil!
