Shenmue 2 subtitled, not dubbed

Purists rejoice!

Often when popular Japanese media is translated for the West, we also end up with a ridiculous dub in our native tongue. In the case of the original Shenmue, we'd really rather they hadn't bothered. With Shenmue 2 though, it appears that for better or worse, they haven't! Whether it's down to the lack of an American version, budget constraints or a design decision, we're far happier now that we know Shenmue 2 will be subtitled, rather than dubbed.
