Raar, maar op EuroGamer te lezen. Het zou de Amerikanen geen FUCK (censuur, censuur *kuch* *kuch* ) kunnen schelen of Shenmue 2 nu wel of niet in hun land uit zou komen. Het gaat hier om de DreamCast versie van het spel dat al in Japan uit is. Daar het aanbod van nieuwe spellen voor de DC logischerwijs langzaam op z'n eind loopt is deze beslissing niet zo raar. Maar het spel komt wel gewoon uit in Europa. Uitleg?Sega of America's VP of Long Job Titles Charles Bellfield has confirmed rumours that Shenmue 2 won't be released on the Dreamcast in America, although the much anticipated game is already available in Japan and is still due out in Europe next spring. It's a bizarre turn of events, as usually this works the other way round, with games being released in Japan and the USA but never arriving in Europe. Americans will now have to wait for an Xbox version of the game, which will be released in the US some time next autumn.

"if the Dreamcast [were] continuing today, we wouldn't be having this conversation", Charles Bellfield told IGN. "But it's not, and the reality is that we need to make the right decision for taking our content into next generation platforms and [getting] that to consumers as quickly as possible."Gelukkig wonen wij lekker in Europa en kunnen we Shenmue 2 in de lente van 2002 verwelkomen in onze lieve droomdoosjes, joepie!
