R&D for various game elements is on course as the development team shifts its focus towards production.

Shenmue established the open-world format for action RPG games. An awe-inspiring world with an immersive story featuring cinematic sequences, a realistic fighting system, and a carnival’s worth of entertaining mini-games, garnered acclaim and adoration for Shenmue the world over. Shenmue and Shenmue II, were released by SEGA (now known as Sega Games Co., Ltd.) for the Dreamcast in December 1999 and September 2001, respectively.
