What happens when a fan reskins a modern fighting game to resemble Shenmue characters and locations?
It tops the headlines on GameSpot, of course:
Regular #TeamShenmue supporter Andrés Delgado, a/k/a Esppiral, has put his modding skills to the test with the PC port of Dead or Alive 5: Last Round, transforming it into a fully playable recreation of the showdown many gamers have dreamed of: Ryo Hazuki (subbing for Jacky) versus Lan Di (in the role of Akira), inviting each other to die like warriors in the familiar surroundings of the Hazuki family dojo.

The extraordinary dedication of Shenmue fans is a frequent topic of interest for the media, and while journalists’ optimism towards us getting what we want in terms of reviving the series can vary, the positive press given to Shenmue’s enduring effect on its fans only strengthens awareness of the franchise and the argument for its return.
So we salivate at the coverage that would accompany Ryo Hazuki being voted into a mainstream Nintendo hit like Super Smash Bros. The story would be picked up by nearly every gaming website on the planet, such is the appeal of the definitive mascot brawler and the novel significance of Shenmue’s lead character being the people’s choice for DLC.
