ShenmueDB was born in 2014, as a place where fans and newcomers of the Shenmue series can find information, music, images and more about the Shenmue franchise. The site is dependent on the community, and the information and assets found at ShenmueDB are a result of long and loyal service of the Shenmue Community.

Fun fact: The header image is “dynamic” and changes depending on what time of day it is!


A ton of credit goes to Shenmue Dojo and Dojo owner Yama, for all their hard work and dedication.

Most, if not all information about locations of the Shenmue games are from the hard work of LanDi Sama and Ren of Heavens over at Shenmue Wiki – Neoseeker. Thank you for your hard work.
