New Shenmue 3 Interview
French fan site Shenmue Master's managed to get an interview with Yu Suzuki,during the the Monaco Anime Game Show in March and while there isn't anything particularly revolutionary (he talks mostly about some of the game's themes such as revenge etc.) it does at least show that he is aware of the communities desire to see a third title, and that he is believes that Sega will give him the license to the currently pre-produced version of Shenmue 3.
As with all things though, it remains a situation of funding, and Sega are obviously hoping that with interviews like these they can raise the level of noise from the fans to persuade one of the big console manufacturers to throw some money their way. Here's hoping!
