SEGA Will Probably Let Me Make Shenmue 3 says Suzuki

If they can find the money for it that is...

Shenmue creator, Yu Suzuki, has been talking about the possibilities of the release of Shenmue 3.

In a session at the GDC today, Suzuki was asked by a crowd-member when we would see the final instalment in the epic martial arts adventure series.

Suzuki replied: "Well, I want to make it," began Suzuki. "About 200 people will buy it, I think. But funding is an issue."

He added some historical information on the series as well: "First of all, the game was to be the Dreamcast's killer app. We talked about a Virtua Fighter RPG with Akira as the character we would use. From the beginning, the new title without using Akira would be more acceptable so they went in a different direction."

Thanks Gamasutra.
