Shenmue 2 USA for Dreamcast - New Custom Cover

Post by Lyris » Thu May 19, 2005 1:13 pm

Well, this one was a LONG time in the making (it's taken about 5 months for me to finally finish it). Perhaps not too far off what the actual back cover would have looked like, had Microsoft not arrived with their bag of gold at the 11th hour.



As always, go to my covers page to get them. They're both at the very bottom of the list (being the newest):



Enjoy, and comments please. I apologize for using Xbox screen shots.

Thanks - although those two other covers of mine you mentioned, I'm actually not very pleased with them - especially seeing as one uses a bad quality scan for the box templates. Now I use bad scans as a base and re-make everything on top, not just the stuff I'm changing. Although I hear it's normal to be really critical of stuff you make yourself... in both cases I'm not pleased with how the back covers went.

Now I leave the scanning to other people... my scanner is crap, to say the least :lol:

Wow, those look great :)

...better than the European ones - don't know if the UK ones are different than those that they used for the rest of the EU market.
Insane homebrew collector.

They're the same - UK is serviced by Sega of Europe (in fact, that's where they're based). I wasn't too impressed with their efforts either... perhaps they usually re-use Sega of America's materials, but didn't have any in this case.

Reviving a 10+ year old thread.

Anyone stil have these files? The site they were hosted on are longsince gone. There is a version floating around that looks like it was edited in MS paint to add things to it, but im looking for the original. Anyone have this saved somewhere?

I ACTUALLY found them the other day using wayback machine. I was able to get the front and back cover, though the reverse insert I have been unable to find. I uploaded them up to Thecoverproject, though they usually take awhile to actually show them on the site.

Umm... that's just the Japanese cover with the template of USA photoshopped over...

I was expecting something more original.
Back on Sega.com before Peter Moore thought Shenmue 2 would lose all hype, if he allowed AM2 to release it on DC, they actually had a game page on it with an alternate cover. I don't remember it at all but it looked really cool. I really liked the original cross platform Sega website.

Bumping an ancient thread. I'm glad you were able to recover those.

Nope, I did the back from scratch.

The front shares most of the visuals with the Japanese cover, yes, but it's from an actual digital file (I can't recall how I got it) instead of a scanned print. The purpose was to make covers that would look like what Sega of America would likely have made, rather than do anything crazy.
