Sega Trademarked Shenmue III in Europe -UPDATE-

shenmue art 1

It seems like the conclusion to the epic Shenmue saga is finally coming, at long last – SEGA has trademarked Shenmue III in Europe.

The trademark was filed yesterday under “computer game programs; computer game software; video game software”, among other uses.

Shenmue creator Yu Suzuki is actually holding a postmortem talk regarding the series next year at GDC, so perhaps that’s when we’ll be seeing the reveal?

Don’t play with my heart, SEGA.


It seems someone is trying to get a rise out of the fans, the trademark is apparently fake, as it lacks application reference numbers. Thanks, NeoGAF.
