Shenmue Documentary Film, Shenmue I & II, Other Info


In this update we have some Shenmue related news we would like to bring to your attention.
Shenmue Documentary Film Project



As you may know, a documentary on Shenmue is currently live on Kickstarter entitled, “A Gamer’s Journey: The Definitive History of Shenmue”.



Headed by Shenmue fan Adam Sipione, the documentary mixes interviews from those on the production side and the fan side, exploring the history of the Shenmue series and the influence it has made on the game community.


With support from the fans, the project has already reached its initial goal, but the stretch goals are within reach, so please take a look!


*”A Gamer’s Journey” is not affiliated with YSNET or Shenmue III, and we will not comment on questions concerning the documentary. Thank you for your understanding.
