Shenmue was released in the year 1999. It was a very expensive game to develop but the people received it very well and fans till date love the game. Despite being one the greatest games, Shenmue was a commercial failure which put the development of Shenmue 3 under scrutiny for an entire decade.  Fans petitioned for Shenmue 3 in the year 2005. In the same year Yu Suzuki established his own development company Ys Net. He released Shenmue city first to lay some ground for developing Shenmue 3 but Shenmue city did not see the light of success and it was shut down in the year 2011. In September 2011 Suzuki left Sega to focus on his company Ys Net. In the year 2013 Suzuki considered crowdfunding for Shenmue 3. The Shenmue legacy ignited a lot of passion among its fans. Suzuki announced that he was looking for crowdfunds during the 2014 game developers’ conference. At that conference Yu Suzuki was approached by the Sony computer Entertainment for Shenmue III as it was one of the popular demands. It was one of the most requested games by Xbox owners. Sega renewed the Shenmue trademark and the game is in development. Shenmue 3 release date has been announced as 27th August 2019.
