I had a Sega Dreamcast years ago and I became a huge fan of shenmue, it's a great game with a lot of possibilities, a great storyline, many interactions, animals, charismatic characters, and the martial arts at it's best.. So why not make a Shenmue port to pc using GTA San Andreas system?
Here are some gameplay videos of Shenmue and Shenmue II:
Shenmue Gameplay Part 1.
Shenmue 2 (2001) Dreamcast Gameplay
I love this game and I love San Andreas too xD But I'm just giving an idea.. Imagine Millions of shenmue fans like me that finally can have shenmue on PC without emulators and with other possibilities in gameplay..
Here it's a list of features of Shenmue:
Shenmue has animals and GTA SA hasn't, but it's possible to make animals in GTA SA, there are a lot of animals mods for GTA SA view
so create a cat mod for GTA SA engine it's not hard.
GTA SA has CJ as player, with many clothes haircuts and some other stuff, Shenmue has Ryo Hazuki with only an outfit,
so it's easy to convert to GTA, if the guy who makes it is good at moddeling, but there is already a Ryo Hazuki player model to GTA SA here: video
We can also include these clothes as a possible outfit to wear view
The cutscenes can be made, but if it is not possible to make Shenmue cutscenes to GTA SA, it's posible to convert the audio and create Shenmue missions with that audio from original game, so I think it's a good idea, waiting to see any reply..
IF SOMEONE WANTS TO JOIN OUR TEAM JUST ASK
Please let me know if there is anybody interested in this mod idea..
