Yu's Games

CLASSIFIED IMAGES
-The Sega Saturn version of Shenmue-never before seen!
To unlock this movie you must first complete the game. This is a very interesting movie as it shows footage of Shenmue when it was first planned to be released on the Sega Saturn. You may recognise several scenes from the final Dreamcast game, as well as a lot of differences.

HANG ON
-Keep up your speed to win!
Location: Rm.#222, Yellow Head Building, Kowloon
Many people miss this arcade machine as it can only be found in the Yellow Head Building, which can only be explored at the end of Disc 3. Itís on the 2nd floor in Rm.#222 so be sure not to miss it!

SPACE HARRIER
-A SciFi shooting game with easy controls and dramatic speed
Location: Pine Game Arcade, Golden Qr, Wan Chai
You can find Space Harrier in the Pine Game Arcade, which is located in the Golden Qr in Wan Chai. Itís a big machine and easy to spot.

You can also find OutRun in the Pine Game Arcade, which is located in the Golden Qr in Wan Chai.

AFTERBURNER II
-A shooting game that simulates aerial combat
Location: Phoenix Building, Dimsum Qr, Kowloon
AfterBurner II can only be found in the Phoenix Building. The Phoenix Building can be entered from inside the Tea Break Building in the Dimsum Qr. You can only get inside when youíre looking for the three street fighters and it costs $500 to get in. Find the machine on the first floor.


Battle

MOVES SCROLL
-Select moves to match your style or the level of the opponent
Your moves scroll is avaliable at the very beginning of the game anyway so you donít have to do anything to get it.

THE BEAST
-Ren Yan: Attack him with a critical strike!
Location: Beverly Hills Wharf, Aberdeen
This will be the first Street Fight you come across in the game. The Beast can be found in the Beverly Hills Wharf, which can only be explored near the end of Disc 2. He is near the alley that leads back to Queenís St., and he isnít that hard to find. The idea of the battle is to find an attack that will actually damage him. He will not fight back, but you only have a limit of five attempts to knock him down. I recommend using Iron Palm (Press X+A at the same time), this should knock him down for the count. Even if you donít win it is still added to the Shenmue Collection.

MONGOLIAN WRESTLER
-Nadam/Agon/Uzun: Donít stop! Donít let them get close!
Location: Former Barracks, Thousand White Qr, Kowloon
The Former Barracks are near the entrance to the Thousand White Qr and next to the Former Factory Site. You face the three wrestlers one at a time. The idea is to avoid getting caught by them as if you do, itís game over. Repeatedly dodge them and stay out of their way before the time runs out. Beat all three of them and you win.

IRON THRUST STYLE
-Hangquin Qin: Iron Thrust is a deadly blow. Do not get hit!
Location: Former Factory Site, Thousand White Qr, Kowloon
The Former Factory Site is near the entrance to the Thousand White Qr., and next to the Former Barracks. In this battle you fight an old man, but donít let his age fool you-heís tough. Just keep dodging his attacks and hit him when you get the chance. Every so often youíll get a QTE, telling you to press B very quickly. Fail and you get knocked out. Near the end of the battle the victor is determined by a Command QTE. The command is usually B+right or sometimes left, but occassionally it will be a more complex command, so stay on your guard.

ACROBAT STYLE
-Enjiang Zhou: Catch the man evading with light steps!
Location: Thousand White Qr, Kowloon
This arena is situated in front of the Ghost Hall Building. The opponent you face is very speedy and agile, and you must catch him by pressing B. This isnít as easy as it sounds as heís constantly moving. Try dodging and just keep looking for the perfect opportunity to grab him when heís off guard. With practice youíll get it.

IRON HEAD STYLE
-Dongshan Su: Iron Head is a deadly blow. Be careful!
Location: Construction Base, Thousand White Qr, Kowloon
The arena is in the Construction Base at the Thousand White Qr, near the arena where the Acrobat-style battle takes place. Your opponent is a huge man and if he headbutts you even once, Ryo will fall to the ground. You have 60 seconds to defeat him by either knocking him out or forcing him out of the ring. Be sure to dodge the headbutt as it takes a lot of your energy.

ONE-EYED MAN
-Zhouhong Kong: Heís extremely strong! Find his weakness!
Location: Star Gazing Point, Stand Qr, Kowloon
The arena is in Star Gazing Point at the Stand Qr. As you may have noticed, your opponent only has one eye, but donít hold that against him! He is actually very strong and tough to beat. You have to get to the left side of his body in his blind spot to try and hit him there, which is harder than it sounds! Also remember you only have 60 seconds to beat him.

PASSIVE RAID STYLE
-Wenguan Ma: Watch for the chance to attack and strike!
Location: Small Dragon Garden, Stand Qr, Kowloon
The arena is located in the Small Dragon Garden, which is very close to the Blue Dragon Garden in the Stand Qr. Your opponent is very speedy and dodges nearly everything you can throw at him. You must hit him at least once within the 30 second time limit to win. Like many similar battles, a good tip is to dodge behind him and try to get a hit in before he turns around.

WRESTLING
-Greg More: 2 pt match against swift throws!
Location: Blue Dragon Garden, Stand Qr, Kowloon
This fight is vital to the storyline and you need $1000 to get in, so itíd be a good idea to get $500 to enter the Phoenix Building and beat Rod Stunt first, then you get $1000 for winning, which you can use to gain entry to the Blue Dragon Garden, which is near the Small Dragon Garden in the Stand Qr. Here you must challenge Greg More, a wrestler. His moves are very reminiscent of Jeffery and Wolfís from Virtua Fighter. This is a best-two-out-of-three match and thereís no time limit, you just have to win two rounds to gain victory. Be warned though, this guy is tough! Make sure he doesnít get you with his Giant Swing, which can take a lot of energy out of you or even send you flying out of the ring! And, yes, you guessed it, just keep dodging and while heís distracted, hit him. You get $2000 for winning, which you need to enter the arena in the Black Heaven Building to challenge Chunyan, so hang onto it.

PANCRATIUM
-Rod Stunt: 2 pt match against fierce blows!
Location: Phoenix Building (via Tea Break Building), Dimsum Qr, Kowloon
The Phoenix Building is accessible from inside the Tea Break Building, which is in the Dimsum Qr. This battle is essential to the storyline and you need $500 to get in. Try gambling or working part-time at Thousand White Warehouse to get some moolah. Once you have the money, go in to find and battle Rod on the fourth basement floor. For the record, this is the only place you can play AfterBurner II, so keep an eye out for it on the first floor. Rod actually isnít that tough a fighter, but you need to stay on your guard. Once again, itís a best-two-out-of-three-match.

JEET KUNE DO
-Chunyan: 2 pt match against agile kicks!
Location: Black Heaven Building, Stand Qr, Kowloon
The arena is in the 12th floor of the Black Heaven Building and you need $2000 to get in, which you should have won from your battle with Greg. This is a very tough battle as the ring is very narrow and itís easy to fall off. Chunyan is a very strong fighter and uses very speedy attacks, kind of reminiscent of Jacky and Sarahís moves from Virtua Fighter. Watch out for her aerial somersault, itís a very irritating and frustrating move to avoid! Once again, itís best-two-out-of-three. You get some money for winning.

TIGER SWALLOW STYLE
-Baihu: 2 pt match against punch combos!
Location: Big Ox Building (via Yellow Head Building), Kowloon
The arena is located in the Big Ox Building, which is really just the basement of the Yellow Head Building. This is another battle important to the story and you must beat Master Baihu to rescue Joy. His style seems to be the same as Zhao Sun Mingís. This is another tough battle as you must fight in a cage, so you donít have much room to move around. Baihu himself is huge and has some very impressive moves at his disposal. And, yes, a good tactic would be keep dodging and attack while heís distracted. At the end of the battle, when Baihu is on his last bit of energy, youíll have a Command QTE. If you fail this, youíll lose the battle so make sure you pay attention to the command! Best-two-out-of-three again.
