The piano version sounds more like Debussy or something you would hear on the Shenmue OST.

The electronic version has a vibe more like you hear in the actual game(maybe Guilin or nighttime Hong Kong):

They're both kickass, though.

My sister listens to the Utada version and she always says that it sounds like Shenmue.

I've been a fan of Sakamoto since discovering his music from the film Black Rain. This wouldn't go out of place in Shenmue, I don't think..

Pretty sure I've posted this before, but this one reminds me kinda of Shenmue too.

Did he composed themes for the game? It seems to be an inspiration here.

He's one of the bests in Japan.

The only thing that I could find (on Wikipedia) was that he composed the bootup sequence for the Dreamcast.

The Music at Shalour City from the recent pokemon X/Y strongly reminded me of shenmue in its tone!!

I went to see him in Manchester a few years ago, when he was touring his 'Playing the Piano' release. Such a graceful performer, and has done some great experimental stuff. =)
