Could Mark Cerny and Yu Suzuki Be Discussing Shenmue III for PS4?

Posted by Sammy Barker

Be still our beating heart

Mark Cerny is an ex-SEGA employee, so it stands to reason that he’d be friends with Shenmue creator Yu Suzuki. Still, it’s hard not to feel a little pang of excitement over this photograph of the duo in the same room. Meggan Scavio snapped the attached shot of the PlayStation 4 system architect and legendary game designer chatting behind closed doors at GDC.

“Mark Cerny and Yu Suzuki talking strategy for Shenmue III,” she said. “For reals, you guys.” We’re guessing that she was probably joking, but we want so hard to believe. Suzuki has repeatedly cited his desire to create the third entry in Ryo Hazuki’s opus, even hinting at the prospect of crowd funding. It sure would be nice if a high-profile Sony employee was able to push some kind of deal through for the PS4, wouldn’t it?

We already adore Cerny for creating Marble Madness and kicking PlayStation’s hardware design team into shape – but we’d be willing to kiss the ground that he walks on if he managed to convince the platform holder to fund Shenmue III.

"Mine mine mine mine mine mine mine mine mine" to quote the seagulls in finding nemo. I'm planing I get shenmue 2 for my original Xbox some time so Thai would be absolutely amazing if they put this on PS4 as long they don't put anything distasteful in and keep that stuff out. I would hope someone doesn't think I have rabies if they do this game.

Should re-release Shenmue 1 and 2 on PSN/XBLA/eShop and see what kinda sales they get, than decide to make a Shenmue 3. I would gladly give some money to see Shenmue 3

@Jaz007 Not to go off subject but im pretty sure them seagulls are saying mate!!
Makes a bit more sense? But anyways does anyone actually believe we will see this game as there seems to be a new report at least every month which ends up with nothing every time, even down to shenmue 1 and 2 becoming available for download via our current console's, honestly how hard could it be to achieve this and surely this would generate some money rather than lose it for them, when will we get something concrete?
