This thread has kinda hit the big time now. I've seen it cited on a lot of news sites, probably because a lot of outlets just get their news from ResetERA.
Unfortunately this also means inaccuracies in reporting... VG 24/7 ran with the headline that Shenmue III will be twice the length of the predecessors.
That's very flattering of you to say, but y'know, in the 24 hour news cycle this stuff is here today, gone tomorrow. If we weren't in a slow period for games news, I'm not sure it would have gotten picked up. Any lasting impression on the gaming consensus will be when Ys Net and Deep Silver start cranking up the heat closer to release.Oh wow, that's awesome for you dude. Congrats! Misreporting aside it's the best Shenmue 3 news in months so glad it's making waves. You helped increase the profile of the game, maybe even future sales, so this was awesome of you.
I was one of the many worried about the new combat system, still pretty worried about it based on many disappointments from modern gaming but hoping Suzuki's old school work ethic still shines through in this. Based on the translation it sounds like the combat system has a super duper easy mode but also can be challenging if you are good at it. I'm still praying the combat is button combinations and inputs rather than button mashing a single button and a block/dodge button, that definitely doesn't sound like realistic Chinese Kung Fu.I really admire Yu Suzuki for his immense bravery. His decision to create a new combat system for Shenmue III didn’t go down too well with some fans but Yu Suzuki said something like if risks are not taken then progress is not made and the gaming industry becomes stagnant.
Despite there being pressure on him to deliver a great game, he is still prepared to effectively gamble with innovative ideas.
He’s not certain they will pay off, and he said as much, however, despite not having produced a major game in well over a decade he refuses to toe the line and reign in his innovative, trend-setting, trail-blazing side and is determined to break new ground with Shenmue III.
The hallmarks of the genius and bravery of Yu Suzuki are clearly evident in Shenmue I and Shenmue II; games which were truly ahead of their time. To know that Yu Suzuki is as bold as ever is incredibly inspiring and has certainly emboldened me to anticipate a game which I believe will once again capture the imagination of Shenmue fans and hopefully the wider gaming community.
Honestly, I would prefer a smaller world but rich in depth than a bigger world that feels empty.Deep Silver owners Koch Media, tweeting a link to the VG247 article with the "double the length of prior games" headline:

You know, looking at that picture(which is quite old by now), I really don't see too much wrong with this game in terms of graphics.
The environments are phenomenal, Ryo looks quite good even in that early picture from 2017-2018.
I'm sure the facial things have been ironed out and a little less of the "shiny" has been implemented. I can't wait to see what they have to show us.
I think it is going to silence a lot of people very quickly.
Totally! I've posted this pic a few times but it really does show just how close it is:You know when this picture of Ryo showed awhile back I thought to myself "That's Ryo! An HD upscale of his Dreamcast model!" The fact that Suzuki has gone beyond that is exciting and makes me believe the final models Ryo and Shenhua will be magnificent.
