With the success and sequel-savvy ending of Sega's
Shenmue, the release of a follow-up
was not a matter of if, but when. Now, with the European release of this promised
continuation, Shenmue II can be
enjoyed by Spaniards and Poles alike, provided they have a Dreamcast. Boasting nearly 1,000
fully polygonal characters, Shenmue II promises to be a popular title among role-playing
and other gaming enthusiasts.
Much to the dismay of North American gamers, Shenmue II's planned North American
Dreamcast release was cancelled late last month. Gamers on this side of the planet need not fear
missing out on the title, though; it is due out for Microsoft's Xbox sometime in late 2002.
