I heard the game Shenmue was based off of a book. Is this true, and if so, what is the name of it and where can I get a copy?

If the game was based off of a book (which it isn't), what do you think it'll be called?

It's based off a story Yu Suzuki wrote up ;).

Do you know if the book is for sale or not or is it just something that that he worte and will never be seen by other people?

I doubt he made a book....More of a script

I just heard from some websites in the past and people that the storyline for Shenmue was based off of some books or a book in its entirety. Now if this is true, the books are probably so minor or ancient that they are near impossible to find. If you look at the outline for the Shenmue game, Suzuki himself laid out which games cover which chapters of this so called book, if there is one.

It's probably a book that he wrote then. I doubt it was published.

Yu Suzuki already has the whole script planned out for the future.

Well if that's the case, I hope that Yu Suzuki could at least publish that book for the fans if he doesn't continue to make the games.
