[edit] Background

Shenmue II is the second episode of this episodic adventure, picking up right after the first installment left off. Ryo Hazuki finally makes it to Hong Kong and there his quest to uncover the truth of his father's murder can continue. He'll also meet in person the woman who haunted his dreams in the first episode. The immersive game world is more detailed and there's a greater emphasis on action this time around. Explore Aberdeen, Kowloon, Wan Chai and Guilin, and meet more characters!

[edit] Gameplay

Shenmue II is an epic adventure with all the elements of a great movie–drama, mystery, suspense, and action – and offers a unique game-playing experience that seamlessly blends elements of action, adventure, fighting, and RPG games. In Shenmue II players assume the role of Ryo Hazuki, a young man dedicated to the task of tracking his father's murderer and unlocking the mysteries of the Phoenix Mirror. Shenmue II continues where Shenmue I left off and brings Ryo to Hong Kong with many questions still unanswered as he follows the trail of Lan Di, the man who killed his father.
