Could this mean Shenmue 3 is coming?


The gaming world could well end up imploding in the very near future after Sega announced that Ryo Hazuki, the menial-task-loving hero of the Shenmue games will be appearing as a playable character in upcoming kart game Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing. Ryo will be joining a bizarre mix of the great, good and less-favoured characters in the Sega roster such as Sonic (naturally), Big The Cat (Yay!) and Shadow (Boo).

Tacks in the game take inspiration from a number of different Sega games. If you’ve played Sega Superstars Tennis then that will give you a pretty good idea of what to expect. Having played All-Stars Racing many months ago we can certainly vouch for it being a lot of fun with all the typical Kart-racing trappings you would expect. The big question now is will the appearance of Ryo in the game make a Shenmue 3 more likely. It has to be one of the most requested Sega games, apart maybe for a proper next-gen, 2D Sonic game and it looks like we’re getting that finally.

While you ponder all that, why not take a look at some images of Ryo in Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing. And you can watch the trailer HERE:

    I think if sega are prepared to make a new Sonic game using Ryo Hazuki as a playable character, they should also be prepared to make a new Shenmue game, instead of inadvertantly getting every Shenmue fan’s hopes up needlessly as it is unfair to toy with peoples emotions like that….
