A prototype of the unreleased North American version of Shenmue II for the Sega Dreamcast.


  • The final Dreamcast versions were only released in Europe and Japan. The game was only released in North America on the Microsoft Xbox.
  • The North American version was cancelled by Sega of America because by this point Sega had discontinued their focus on the Dreamcast in an effort to switch to third party development. Microsoft decided to publish the game on the Xbox since the localization was already complete by this point. Only Sega of Europe was interested in releasing the English version on the original Dreamcast.
  • Localization is incomplete in certain areas.
  • Debug can be enabled by pressing START on controller #4 while in game.
