They just need to announce this. Drop a a quick announcement trailer on Adult Swim after the finale!
So makes me wonder if they been visiting the dojo as well?
LOLOLOL XD you both dynamically generated this wonderful moment XD
I thought similar prior the russian connection, now i fear they can lie and kill us if we protestTheir recent likes section is literally all Shenmue IV. Nevermind a mad lad temp could be getting fired, there would be fucking murders if this turned out to be nothing.
They aren't worried about it as it's not constant I believe. But as far as the comment about us making that great moment. I would like to award @Jibby with the Dojo Oscar for hitting that out of the park. I mean I legit cackled like a mad man as soon as I saw it.I thought similar prior the russian connection, now i fear they can lie and kill us if we protest
edit: sorry i double posted twice today :S can i fix it?
While a bit busy for a few days (pardon late response), I think there's something fair to your point and my comment wasn't directed at you personally. I hope it wasn't taken as such-- on the record, I tend to find your takes pretty level headed.I'm simply enjoying the the idea that Shenmue IV still generates interest and clicks. That appears to be somewhat true based on multiple sites picking up this news. I am in on building hype even if this comes crashing down. The anime's about to finish, after a successful season, and people are hyped for Shenmue IV. I feel the magic in the air and want to capitalize.
Here is the huge jump.If I see a huge jump I’ll immediately know “Nice, they announced it.”
A lot of people are saying the anime should finish the story and dismiss the game format, so there's still a unpleasant vibe discussing Shenmue at the moment.Thinking about it though getting a franchise with a rabid in built franchise must be a dream for an up and coming publisher.
If the anime is pulling in around 250k from midnight screenings in the US alone then there must be a ton of people watching it on demand in the US and the rest of the world. Live TV is old business for so many people so I'd put money on streaming figures being better than TV viewings. So many potential new fans. The anime is putting the franchise back in a positive light following the underserved hard criticism following part III but the beauty of the anime is it's getting people involved in the mystery of the story which has been the pull for many of us for two decades (and why we were more forgiving off Shenmue 3's gameplay shortcomings)
Even if this 110 stuff is just hot air it shows that the brand still makes headlines which can only be a good thing. As much as I like the look off wanted dead it's bloody hard to establish a new IP these days so I can see why they would want a prestige title to bring eyes to their brand
It all makes good sense to me
The anime is good don't get me wrong it's done wonders for the series in quality and numbers, but in my opinion shenmue started as a game and rightfully should end as one.A lot of people are saying the anime should finish the story and dismiss the game format, so there's still a unpleasant vibe discussing Shenmue at the moment.
Why not both? I wouldn’t mind having two versions of this story he told in their entirety. Hell, maybe the anime could make up for areas cut from the game. Maybe Baisha could be a thing in the anime since it probably won’t be in IV going forward (pending)The anime is good don't get me wrong it's done wonders for the series in quality and numbers, but in my opinion shenmue started as a game and rightfully should end as one.
