Profile

AM2 of CRI "Shenmue" Developing Team

Japan

This development team was formed from the elite Sega AM2 research team that created epoch-making games like the multi-view 3D computer graphics racing game Virtua Racing, the world's first 3D hand-to-hand fighting game Virtua Fighter and the racing simulator that underwent rigorous testing by Ferrari, the F355 Challenge. As always, they are breaking new ground and pushing the envelope of game development.

Award Reason

This epoch-making work takes the elements of time and weather and programs their development into a simulation of a virtual world that is the basis of this role-playing game. This experiment is not only interesting as a game, but also for further investigation into virtual reality.
