May the 4th be with you, I mean! May the 3rd be with Yu
It may be Star Wars Day but yesterday was unequivocally Shenmue Day, as fans of Yu Suzuki’s magnum opus came out in Force for the#SaveShenmue Tweetathon.
We want to thank everybody who took part in making the event a social media spectacular, as the pressure mounts on the industry to facilitate a Shenmue revival. The more people we reach and the more support our cause receives, the greater our chances of rescuing this franchise from the trash compactor of Sega, that wretched hive of scum and villainy.
With every show of strength from the fan community comes a new hope, a hope for a seismic shift in public opinion towards ending the biggest creative injustice standing between the medium of videogames and its right to be called art.
The odds? Never tell us the odds.
The next Tweetathon of course is set for June 3rd, and if you haven’t already done so, you can pre-load your tweet for the occasion at TeamYu.net/AutoTweet – all too easy!
Meanwhile, in case you missed it and are in need of a quick timed Shenmue hit on your mobile, this is the Android game you’re looking for: http://tinyurl.com/ExciteQTA2
