Despite it being one of the most requested sequels of all time, SEGA seems utterly uninterested in making Shenmue III. While that’s to be expected given the dismal sales of the first two games, though, we had hoped that the Japanese publisher would have ported the Dreamcast entries to the PlayStation Network by now. It hasn’t, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to.
Fortunately, one Korean fan who goes by the alias NoconKid has decided to take matters into his own hands, faithfully recreating parts of the original game in high definition. In the second video embedded below, you’ll get a good look at the rundown Game You arcade, which has suddenly been brought back to life with Sonic the Hedgehog and Golden Axe arcade cabinets. Where’s the QTE boxing game gone, though?
Unfortunately, the talented fan admitted that it would take a “long, long time” to bring the rest of Yokosuka to life, so don’t go expecting to play this anytime soon. We’re just hoping that if SEGA sees how excited people are for this version, it will consider releasing an official up-port of its own. Oh, who are we kidding?
