Yu Suzuki: 'I think Sega's going to let me' make Shenmue 3

Shenmue Town is a 'side story,' made by Yu Suzuki's new company

Ulala and BD Joe get behind the wheel in Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing

It seems like the cast of Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing will never cease to expand. Not only has Sega tapped almost all of its memorable characters (including Shenmue's Ryo), but its roster is also starting to encompass games outside of the Sega realm, including Banjo-Kazooie, Avatars and Miis....

Rumor: Shenmue's Nozomi cut from Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing

Nozomi, the erstwhile love interest of Shenmue's Ryo Hazuki, has lived a virtual life of ignominy.
