Sega Closes Down Shenmue City On Mobage [Social Games]


Sega has closed down one of the most ambitious mobile social games in Japan, Shenmue City (Shenmue Gai), on Mobage. The game’s developer, Ysnet, actually posted a two-liner thanking players on December 26 on the official¬†homepage¬†of the title.

Shenmue City was launched amid much fanfare at the beginning of last year.

I was wondering why Sega never released a smartphone version of the game, but now it’s clear it simply didn’t have enough players (Shenmue City almost never appeared in the Mobage top 20 games ranking over the last few months).
