    It's amazing to think that this game was originally in development for the Saturn. I didn't realize this until after going through some extra content after I had just finished Shenmue II on the original Xbox.

    Though I fail to see a reality where Shenmue had, in fact, been released on the Sega Saturn & still retained its essence. I mean, it probably would have been spread across six or more CDs (given that the multi-disc Dreamcast release used the higher-capacity GD roms--and still managed to use up a total of 4 discs) and been full of bugs and graphical glitches. The performance of the sample footage from the early Saturn production was underwhelming in my opinion--albeit certainly ahead of anything on PlayStation or N64 at that point.

    Adam Koralik has instructed that the Dreamcast version of ShenII is superior to the Xbox version, with the ability to essentially "carry-over" content from the first game into the second game. I think this would be more interesting if the Dreamcast had survived long enough to house the third/final entry into the saga. This would essentially have been the PRE-HD Era equivalent of Mass Effect at that time.Edited August 2015 by Unknown
