Yu Suzuki, the father of Virtua Fighter and Shenmue, was recently interviewed by Gamespot at the Game Developers Conference. Suzuki was there to receive the Pioneer Award for his contributions to the word of gaming. In the interview he mentions the possibility of Sega letting him make Shenmue 3 and also discusses the influences for Space Harrier. I hope Sega let's him continue his work, the man is a genius and Shenmue deserves to be finished, the fans demand it. Yu Suzuki made his parent company a lot money over the years, let the man finish his dream!
