These beta screens were Bailu Village in the minds of fans for 15+ years. The fact the final version is so similar -- training kids, water tower, temple with graveyard, etc. -- is one of the reasons why I'm convinced the main story beats in the final Bailu are faithful to the "original" script outline (circa 2002).
Great catch on the temple with graveyard! While I am sure there was adjustments and changes in a way it’s comforting to see many similar elements between this beta footage and what we eventually got in Shenmue 3.
