Shenmue mobile social game cancelled in Japan
Being a die-hard Shenmue fan like is a fairly upsetting experience.
Having seen only two of a planned trilogy of games released on the amazing Sega Dreamcast, Shenmue fans in the west will now have to hold a candlelight vigil for the mobile social game Shenmue Gai (a.k.a. Shenmue Town), which has been cancelled after a year of operations.
The formerly Japan-only title was a free-to-play game which wasn't a port or conversion. Instead, it was built on the world and story of the main series.
It was expected to evolve into a smartphone and browser-based game later down the line (Shenmue creator Suzuki hinted last year at a iOS port), but - as with everything Shenmue-related - things don't seem to have worked out.
