I believe that the team might have already considered this; but I was wandering If anyone in your team or from the Shenmue Dojo community is going to create Dev Diary videos of the Dragon and Phoenix Project in order to promote the Project and get the attention of the media and draw in new players into the franchise or even get more fans with experience in Unreal Engine and other game development areas onto the Project !?

I think that a great example that the team can follow would be something similar to what the Skyblivion Team has been doing for some years now.
They are re-creating The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion in the Skyrim Engine and have been promoting the Project with some great Dev Diary videos that have caught a lot of traction from the media and fans of the series like myself.
I think this sort of promoting would be a great way to get the attention of the media and the gaming community in general.

This is their latest Dev Diary vídeo:

I love the idea of two versions Dragon and Phoenix. Dragon version with little changes about new features to preserve the original experience, and Phoenix version with more changes and features.

I love this new place, so beautiful.

I think one of the features that could be implemented in the Phoenix Mode specially for Shenmue 1 would be an immersive waiting feature; where Ryo could wait for a certain time of the day by sitting in a bench of a park; by meditating at the Dojo; praticing Tai Chi at the car park or even have a drink or a meal at the local bar or restaurant.

While i don’t have problems with the waiting in the first game i love this idea that you had for the Phoenix version, i understood that with the Phoenix version the intention is to put a lot of new things so i love this idea.

I don’t know if this is hard to do this but i had a idea, the idea is to put Suka High in the first game, Ryo having the option to go to school and there we can play a lot of mini games, talk with other students, talk with Karate instructor Nonaka-san and much more, Ryo is not obliged to go to school in the first game so my idea for the Phoenix version is that every morning the players will decide if they want to go to Suka High or not, if the players decide to go to school the players will have the option to leave anytime they want.

It would be nice to have Suka High in the game even if we can’t enter, the player tries to enter and Ryo can say... "I don’t have time for school now, i need to search for Lan Di."

It would be nice to have the option to put his Suka High uniform in the game so we can change his clothes if we want.

Just to get back to business here: is there anything new coming up in the next few weeks/months, or has the whole project been put on hold?
Patience is key, this is a project they work on in their spare time, which means it could take a few more years to complete. They'll post updates whenever they are ready to show off content.

Thank you RetroLord for clarifying. Curiosity took the better of me, but the good thing is that our community is comprised of fans with nerves of steel and patience of saints.

I can't believe I've been missing this thread for the last year! Either way, this proves to me that Shenmue fans are the best ever! I hope that either Sega or Suzuki hires you guys like they did with noconkid for Shenmue 3. Though I don't own the PC version (well, I am a Mac user), this has inspired me to get it when it comes out. I understand that passion/independent projects take time to do, so take all the time you need to give us the best work.

As for the Phoenix Version being closer to Shenmue III, I'm guessing it won't be possible to carry over a Shenmue II save to Shenmue III, then, huh?
