Shenmue 3 Trademark Application is Fake, Says Sega 0


A little bit of hooplah was recently raised all over the web (at least, among old school SEGA fans) over a trademark application for Shenmue 3, which implies that the company has plans to finally produce the last installment in the incomplete martial arts action RPG trilogy, but Sega has recently informed Eurogamer that the application was fake.

The listing for the trademark within the Office of Harmonization for the Internal Market (OHIM) has since been removed. Here’s what Sega had to say to Eurogamer:

“Sega has confirmed that the recent application for the trademark of Shenmue 3 is a fake and is looking into the origins of this application.”
