I’m going to have to buy Sleeping Dogs ASAP after watching this video. The creator, DimphonyHD, has done an amazing job of showing us just what a Shenmue 3 might look like if it were released today. Even more impressive is just how much Sleeping Dogs seems to have in common with the atmosphere and setting of Shenmue. While, I don’t remember ripping anyone off of their vehicles in Shenmue and throwing them to the street, the environments and Hong Kong setting definitely are giving me some wonderful flashbacks to my time chasing down Lan Di.
I also like the addition of QTE sequences because you can’t spell Shenmue without Q-T-E.
