Did You Know There Was Crazy Duck Racing In Shenmue II?

Why did Sega’s beloved and ambitious Shenmue series fail to progress beyond its second game? Because Sega never really promoted one of Shenmue II’s most spectacular features: underground duck racing.

From the man who brought you racing game classics like Out Run and Super Hang-On comes Shenmue II’s duck racing mini-game, a component of the game that I personally was completely oblivious to. Thanks to the duck race filming efforts of Shenmue Dojo, however, we can all bask in the greatness that is ducks wearing bow ties sprinting through the streets of China.

Perhaps the best aspect of Shenmue II duck racing is the translation of duck quack into English. Watch as Ryo’s duck quacks with attitude “I’m gonna kick some ass!” and “Watch me, baby!”
