Random Shenmue IV Thoughts.

I had a dream last night that Shenmue IV had just been released. There was a combat scene where Ryo was fighting in an open field and he could pull of Dragon Ball Z-style moves, like punching people into the air. He was fighting a woman who used magic. In my head I was thinking, "I love it, but some fans are going to be upset" :ROFLMAO:

I wonder when we'll get any sorta movement on IV? With covid-19 ruining everyone's plans this year and studios not fully opening til next year hopefully. I wonder if we'll get a announcement in 2022.

We are getting close to a whole year since the release of Shenmue III. Isn't it amazing how fast time pass by?
The two weeks before it's release felt unreal. I counted each day.
At wierd times like this, there was at least some (very) good news with the anime and I'm glad that it is being worked on.
However. For me personally it can't be a complete replacement for two more games.
I keep on hoping that Yu will at least say something new about the future of Shemmue IV in November.

Just give us something to look forward to. There's some confirmation out there already.. but the more, the better.

TBF we have quite a busy end of year coming up in terms of Shenmue. Steam and GOG releases, the Dojo turns 20 on Nov 14th (we've got a bunch of cracking stuff lined up for that) plus the Shenmue III music goes on sale.

Shenmue 4 is more a possibility now than ever. Plus the Anime!

Thanks for the reminder! I can relax now :coffee:. I think IV will be well worth the wait.

I could see Shenmue 4 starting from the Lan Di fight in the old castle. It gives us a quick recap of the story so far, reinforces the power differences between Ryo and Lan Di at the start of the game (which will make a great contrast with the possible end of 4, with Ryo being able to compete with him) and it also allows Yu to potentially expand on the information Shenhua's dad shared with Ryo, in addition to clearing up some of the confusion about Ryo's line about the old temple.
