Trivia

Every hand movement and action (drinking a can of Coke) was tested by a real person to get it looking as lifelike as possible. Also attention was given to the veins in Ryo's hands. See more »

Quotes

Wuying Ren: [after Ryo beats up the guys that spotted him while he and Ren were intruding in the Yellow Head Building] That's right. Always clean up the messes you make.

Alternate Versions

The Dreamcast version (which was only released in Europe and Japan.) had a few differences. For example, the language was in Japanese with English Subtitles. The character Yuan was originally a Male in female clothing. As for the Xbox version, the voice of Yuan was redubbed in English by a female voice actor. Some of the capsule toy prizes didn't make it in the final Xbox version either. Since Sega owns the rights to Shenmue, Microsoft replaces some of the prizes. See more »
