Models and animation look bad but it's still ways off. Still though, that is not Shenhua. I don't know who that imposter is but it isn't her!

The trailer still got me emotional as fuck though. Shenmue!!!

Environment art looks much better than I thought it would, very lovely. The mannequin like faces though... hopefully they'll work on that next.

Still, maybe now is a good time to -finally- get around to playing 2.

Shenmue II is my favorite! Please play it on Dreamcast!

They look like those J-fetish zentai kigurumi people who wear full-head anime masks.

PS: Don't google this if you don't already know what it is. Value your sanity.

It might look bad. But remember actually playing it will be even worse quality, than those facial animations. It's the Shenmue way.

:stahp



It sin't just the face but the entire outfit and design. Why a French beret? Why the bright yellow? Shenhua is a huntress. She would scare away her game. It doesn't fit the forest. It doesn't fit someone who lived their live surrounded by nature. It doesn't feel worn.

It's terrible.

The most confusing thing? It's a downgrade from her previous model in III. What the fuck.

In-game from II:



Promotional material:



III reveal:



Comparison:



:stahp

Why the regression when the older model was clearly better?

Either way, it's clear to me that it's a placeholder but WHY.

The detail in the environments and the FUCKING PHOENIX MIRROR OMG DID YOU SEE IT really got me hyped. That shows they're still applying the classic Shenmue attention to detail. The models will probably be the last to be updated fully. Can't wait! :D



I also love that we get to see the martial arts kung fu adventure in this trailer!

Game Watch interview.

Game Watch Japan has published a very interesting interview with Suzuki-san, the interview took place during Gamescom and includes some really insightful and interesting information about Shenmue III, here's some of it:

-The released Shenmue III teaser footage is real-time in-game graphics.
**-All character models are temporary and subject to change.
-Facial animations were initially implemented but have been removed about a month ago.**
-The teaser was especially made for Gamescom 2017, no further plans to show more of the game at this year's Gamescom or Tokyo Game Show. However, a full-scale promotion will take place next year.
-Deep Silver will publish the game internationally, and they'll provide budget and promotional support. A publisher for Japan is to be decided.
-Suzuki-san would like to continue the series in Shenmue IV if possible.
-Suzuki-san is not interested in forcing the Shenmue story to complete in Shenmue III.
-Shenmue III will take around 30 hours of gameplay to complete.
**-The fighting engine in Shenmue III is being built from scratch, and unlike Shenmue II it won't use the Virtua engine.**
-A system that allows phone calls with characters from Shenmue and Shenmue II is planned for Shenmue III.
-Suzuki-san would like to bring as many voice actors from the previous games as possible, but some are retired now, he will audition a new voice actress for Shenhua.
-OST from Shenmue and Shenmue II will probably be reused in Shenmue III.
**-The new partnership with Deep Silver is strong and it's aimed to improve the Shenmue III experience beyond what was initially planned on the Kickstarter.**
eeh?!

Old news. And if it's like GoT final two seasons I'm glad he's not rushing. Fuck that. Shenmue deserves greatness and not a hacked rush job.

Positive omg.

Famitsu has an interview with Yu and III will start from the last day of II!

We'll get to see the cave and everything! It'll start from Shenhua's house!

It will. It'll have the dialogue system from the Guilin chapter. Apparently the story changes depending on what you say. Which is also similar to II. Like if you keep talking about Nozomi Shenhua will be like "Nozomi again, huh?"

Apparently we will be able to chop wood for work and Suzuki wants us to be able to fish. I really hope Shenhua's cows play a part and you get to take care of them for your daily duties like you could with the kitten in 1.

I can't wait for them to show us Ren! :hyper

It has a sort of DeviantArt fanart feel to it, hard to pinpoint what is clashing with the visuals beyond the obvious but I would say it's the shaders and light effects that look like they're turned up to 11.

Deep Silver today announce that their upcoming release Shenmue III has been moved and will now release in 2019.

The extra time will be used to polish the quality of the game even further, to the high standards it deserves and release the product in the best possible timeframe.

They must have gone with fully prerendered cutscenes because the graphics are trash.
