The Team Yu project aims to unite gamers around a campaign to revive the most treasured creation of celebrated designer Yu Suzuki.
For well over a decade the pleas of Shenmue fans to greenlight a conclusion to this unfinished magnum opus have fallen on deaf ears at Sega, who own the license and refuse to honor funding of Yu’s long-awaited finale without investment from a major console maker. But now with the co-ordinated #SaveShenmue Tweetathon reaching more and more people every month on the 3rd, the continued silence of Sega becomes increasingly inappropriate, and disrespectful towards not only their most passionate fanbase but any potential customer who would consider investing financially and emotionally in a Sega franchise.
We ask you to support Yu Suzuki’s ambition to resolve the most notorious cliffhanger in gaming history, and complete the uniquely affecting journey of Ryo Hazuki in this groundbreaking saga. Signing into this site with your Twitter account gives you access to the AutoTweet function, which, once activated, allows your personalized message to be tweeted once a month in unison with your fellow campaigners, applying persistent pressure on those who need to act for Suzuki-san to get his wish.
It’s that easy to spread the word and be heard on the 3rd, so you know what to do – Team Yu needs YOU to #SaveShenmue!
