A huge THANK YOU to everyone who participated in yesterday's #SaveShenmueHD Tweetathon, keeping the demand for re-releases of Shenmue 1 & 2 at the front of people's minds with your tweets throughout the day - including this photo shared by Marcelo of his tattoo depicting the Four Wude!

The next Tweetathon, if you're not familiar with the schedule by now, is set for June 3rd. This will be around a week and a half before E3, so a great opportunity to make yourselves heard before (almost) the entire industry converges in one spot for gaming's biggest trade show of the year.

At last year's momentous E3 the efforts of the fervent Shenmue fan base paid off big time with the long overdue announcement of Shenmue III. Could lightning now strike in the same place twice? If yesterday's display was anything to go by, the odds certainly can't be described as astronomical anymore.
