Shenmue Town could be heading to Apple iOS and Android


During the Game Developers Conference, taking place throughout this week in San Francisco, Gamasutra had the chance to interview Yu Suzuki. In this interview Suzuki mentions it is very likely that Shenmue Town will be ported to smartphones, as it has been thought as a multiplatform game from the start. Potential platforms are Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android. As previously noted, for now the game is exclusive to Yahoo! Mobage service.

He also notes the previous translation to the original title of Shenmue Gai (City) denotes a much larger world than what was created, hence the change from City to Town.

Yu Suzuki will be receiving the Pioneer Award at the GDC Awards this Wednesday, 2 March, for his contribution to the games industry.
