True. They could still easily market them with a Shenmue angle even without being branded as such.

Yes, they might be better make more complete sets for each franchise.
Although, it is still possible, then, to, concurrently
offer the sub-collections similar to the shenmue ones at discount price, as some appetizer.

Alternatively, quality shenmue-franchise line/packs of
little figures + bio/history/concept info cards could sell well :
> Set of shenhuas in costumes featured ingame+promotional pictures
> figurines of npcs, listed by areas
> figurines sets to mock up memorable cutscenes.
(frying pan Fangmei+Ryo+Thugs+restaurant-tables ; the SH2end/SH3opening scene...)

At least, these could interest shenmue colectors.

Just further confirmation there's at least a bit of Shenmue 3 for Dreamcast, let alone another small amount for XBOX from 2003/4 before the E3 announcement getting canned.

I would venture to guess that both Dreamcast and Xbox assets exist, at least.
I'd imagine in not much more than Alpha phase, but given we have Disc 4 of Shenmue II on the Saturn who knows. I'd love to ask Yu Suzuki, though I don't know if he would be allowed to tell us.

There's a lot of his work at AM2 that I really wish would come to light one day. Like you said, the fact that there's footage all the way to the end of Shenmue 2 on the Saturn makes it easy to believe that there's definitely Shenmue III footage on the DC. Even more recently, Shenmue IV footage on PS4.

Even though it's slightly off topic, I would love for him to talk more about the secret Saturn Virtua Fighter III which was looking real good until it got canned. I've heard that's a sore subject for YS to talk about so he's pretty dodgy about it when asked.
