New Shenmue game coming to mobiles

It's due to launch in Japan this winter. 

SEGA has announced plans to release a new instalment in the Shenmue series.

The twist is that this one will be for mobile phones. According to Kotaku, it will be released for the Yahoo! Japan version of Mobage-town, a popular mobile social network.

The game is titled Shenmue Town and is billed as the "third" Shenmue game. It's due to launch in Japan this winter.

The last Shenmue game, released back in 2003, was rumoured to be the most expensive game ever made. Take a trip down memory lane with our review.
