Shenmue Cheats

Easter Eggs

  • Meet Mr. Yukawa

    It is a possible to meet very famous (in Japan at least) senior executive officer of SEGA Yukawa-san in Shenmue as a hidden event.

    To see him you must get the 'happi' and 'suit' figures of him at Abe Store in Sakuragaoka's raffle . The best way to get to see him is if you have only one of eatch statue. It is reccomend you save as soon as you get one, and then keep trying to be sure you don't get the same one twice.

    When you have them go to Takara Sushi on the 9th of any month after 8pm. He will be sitting in the bar eating. In the Japanese version of the game, Ryo used to talk to him, afterwards he would run away. If you want to see him again go outside and back in again. You can do this as many time as you like between 8 and 9. On the international versions, Mr. Yukawa is not interactable.

    Mr. Yukawa was the main subject of the Japanese playable demo: "What's Shenmue".

  • Infinite Work Days/Yen

    On the third day of work when you take crates to warehouse #3, you're supposed to go check out warehouse #17 after work. Well, if you never check out the warehouse, you will keep on repeating the same work day until you do to advance in the story. This trick is good for getting lots of yen.

Shenmue II Cheats

Unlockables

  • Own a duck to use in duck races

    After the cutscenes when you've finished catching leaves at the temple for the first time, go back and try it again.
    If you catch 4 leaves all together (not in a row but actually all at the same time), you will hear a 'quack' and a feather will drop from the tree. Catch it (be ready because it's fast!) and Ryo will notice a duck in the tree.
    Choose 'catch' from the selections that appear and then watch a funny (if not incomplete) cutscene.
    The duck will then be yours for use in the duck races.

  • Bad/Alternate Ending

    To get the bad/alternate ending, you must play the game up until June 31st, 1987. At the end of this day Ryo will get into bed and it will occur. A good way to quickly get it is to keep failing the QTE at Zhangyu Barber's.
