The Shenmue III Spoiler and Non-Spoiler Forums will be merged on 27th February. From then on, nothing will be classed as a spoiler unless a poster deems it, and uses spoiler tags. If you havent played the games or think there are still parts of Shenmue III you may not want spoiled, please refrain from viewing the boards.
