Suzuki hints at claiming the rights to Shenmue back from SEGA
Yu Suzuki, creator of Shenmue, is apparently still very committed to finishing telling the story of Ryo Hazuki.
Suzuki-san indicated in a recent interview that recovering the rights to the Shenmue series from SEGA was a possibility.
He said: "Shenmue's license is an IP that belongs to Sega. We can obtain the license from Sega."
He originally penned 11 chapters of the Shenmue story with the first game telling chapter one and the sequel telling chapters two to six. SEGA is believed to be reluctant to finish the saga due to the massive cost of developing the first two games for the Dreamcast.
