Wow.. that's all Shenmue!? I havent ever played the series, just heard it's one of the best games on dreamcast and I guess theres a new one. One day, I'll get a dreamcast again and try this series.

I know this is a rather obscure series, so a collection like this is pretty impressive!

Yes! For such a niche title, there is a TON of merchandise...it was originally tasked with being Dreamcast's killer app.

SEGA have thankfully rereleased I & II on Xbox One, PS4, and Steam! They are petty cheap, too. Or you can play the originals on Dreamcast. Shenmue II also came out on original Xbox and was backwards compatible with the 360.

Shenmue III did finally release in November for PS4 and Epic Games Store. It will come out November of this year on Steam and possibly other PC platforms.

I was going to ask you if you had that Official Dreamcast Magazine issue with Shenmue/Half-Life on it. Nice to see you indeed do in the 2nd image. One of the coolest issues they had.

Really nice collection you have there! I envy you!

The complete series of games is also on PC and PS4. Part 2 was on the OG Xbox, and Xbox One got 1 and 2 as well. They released HD ports of the first 2 games in one package in 2018. If you are into mods there are some nice HD mods for the first 2 games where people made much higher resolution textures as well in the same vein as the originals. But me also being a retro gamer I can also recommend the Dreamcast releases.

Thank you! I enjoy collecting things, it is a challenge though as a lot of this stuff comes from Japan in the late 90s.

Nice collection. I have a lot of Shenmue games too, but not as many as you. The only item I own besides the games is this dragon/phoenix mirror medallion that came with Shenmue III. I couldn't tell from your photos, but do you have What's Shenmue? I got that one a few years ago, and I still play it occasionally. I've only finished the US version of the first Shenmue, but I've thought for a while that I should try to do a full playthrough of the Japanese version. I've played the US version so many times, I could probably play through the game without understanding anything. I already know enough Japanese to understand some of it, but if I learned a little more then I might eventually be able to understand almost everything. It's a goal, I guess.

Yes, I have the medallion you mentioned as well as two variations of What's Shenmue. One is the more common blue cover, and the other is the much more rare and expensive orange cover from Famitsu. Exact same game, different colored cover art.

Have you heard of the rereleases? SEGA has released both games in one pack on Steam, Xbox One, and PS4. All versions contain both games in HD, and both games contain full English and Japanese audio with subtitles in several languages, including English. Shenmue III also contains both Japanese and English audio, with subtitles in multiple languages. Check all three games out here:

Yeah, I'm aware of all of that. I don't have the rerelease, because I'd rather just play the Dreamcast versions. I think I'm about 25 hours into Shenmue III.

In case you were wondering, here are the games I have:

What's Shenmue
Shenmue (DC, Japan)
Shenmue (DC, US)
Shenmue II (DC, PAL, x2)
Shenmue II (Xbox, US)
Shenmue III (PS4 and PC, US)

Very nice! I clearly love the series. My favorite three games of all time, hopefully with renewed interest, we will get to finish the saga.
