May the 3rd be with Yu and #SaveShenmue!
Fans of the Shenmue series have waited for a very long time for Shenmue III’s release. Every 3rd of the month, the Shenmue fans from TeamYu.net invite you to go on Twitter and tweet #SaveShenmue to raise awareness. By signing up on Team Yu’s website, you can enroll in the AutoTweet function so you don’t have to remind yourself to tweet #SaveShenmue every month!
TeamYu released a wonderful post to inspire fans around the world to join today’s Tweetathon:
“Imagine the reaction of #StarWars fans had the original trilogy been cut short after The Empire Strikes Back.
With Han Solo frozen in carbonite, and Luke Skywalker discovering who his father really is (hey, we don’t want to be the ones to spoil it for you…), the lack of closure would be agonizing. What fate would become that galaxy far, far away, and more importantly, the characters we’d spent the last two movies investing ourselves in?
Fortunately George Lucas didn’t find himself in the same position as Yu Suzuki, and the Jedi got to return a mere three years later.
Shenmue fans have been waiting 14 years for Ryo Hazuki to catch up with his father’s killer and discover the truth behind the second game’s tantalizing cliffhanger.
This Sunday the next in over three years’ worth of monthly Tweetathons invites gamers from around the world to converge on Twitter around a hashtag that means so much to so many.
Some will say it’s impossible, but those who search their feelings will know it to be true. Team Yu needs YOU to #SaveShenmue!”
