Shenmue is an action-adventure game created, produced and directed by Yu Suzuki, that came out to Dreamcase in 1999 and its sequel, Shenmue 2, came out in 2001. Both games feature a day-and-night system, variable weather effects, non-player characters with daily schedules, and various minigames, as well as a 3D fighting system similar to Sega’s Virtua Fighter series.
The player controls the teenage martial artist Ryo Hazuki as he arrives in Hong Kong in 1987 in pursuit of his father’s killer. His journey takes him to Kowloon and the mountains of Guilin, where he meets a young woman who is part of his destiny.
