While fans wait patiently for Shenmue III to come out in 2017, they will be able to play this fan-made Shenmue game to tide them over. In a recent post from the Shenmue Dojo, Dojo members ShenSun and Esppiral have announced that they will be releasing a Shenmue visual novel in the not-too-distant future.
” Shenmue Gaiden will be a spin off story, taking place just before Ryo reaches Shenhua’s house in Guilin. A second plot, based in Hong Kong, will also be included. Characters confirmed to make an appearance are: Ryo, Shenhua, Lan Di, Xiuying and Ren… as well as ‘a mysterious woman in red’.”
Shenmue Gaiden will play in glorious HD and the game’s soundtrack will be from Shenmue Online and Shenmue II’s BGM. If you are interested in joining the project, you can click here!
