I will gladly froth at the mouth with Bogus on this one. I love Shenmue and I hope the new game blows us all away. These screenshots are definitely doing the game some service. Lan Di looks awesome. I want Ryo to have a tad more redesign, but that China shot looks awesome too. It's giving me a little Fallout vibe though on that steel wall.

I believe that's inside the boat (seen in the last trailer). There's a pretty strong rumour that the original chapter 2 that was cut from Shenmue 2 (set on the boat journey from Japan to China, in which Chai returned and was included in the Xbox release as a short comic), is being reworked into Shenmue 3, presumably on a boat ride Ryo needs to take when travelling between two of the locations in the game. Yu Suzuki actually said as much in a recent interview, although it wasn't clear if he meant it would be included as a flashback, as some sort of demo or whether he has decided to rework it and include it in Shenmue 3 as part of its narrative and as a gameplay section.

I like that rumor. Wasn't it previously only an unlockable comic in Shenmue 2 on Xbox/Dreamcast? I'd like to see a cutscene at least. Ren is looking pretty sharp though. Hard to believe this game is coming out this year, the Kickstarter feels forever ago.

Lan Di looks a lot better than what he looked like before, acceptable almost, I say almost because of the angle, I want to see him in full 360 degrees rotation to form a complete opinion.

But to be honest, I gave up on the character models looking on par with the previous games a long time ago, and especially now that I've been soaking up on the original Shenmue for the last few months.

Is the rest of the game I hope they get right, and hopefully they will, this has been a long wait (and $500 spend on Kickstarter) so hopefully it will be worth it.

I don't know that I'd call it ire; we're just all amused at how deeply you enjoy this incredibly flawed game.


Every game is incredibly flawed and it is only our personal perspective that allows us to overlook them and enjoy a game.

Untrue. Tetris is a masterpiece.

How are the ports of the first two games on ps4? Kind of interested in trying out the series, though I'm not sure if its worth it.

As ports they are pretty great. They were some stupid bugs and issues that I think have been patched since.

Now whether you like the games themselves, it really depends what you expect when you walk into them.

They play more like an adventure game, with great emphasis on exploration rather than combat, though the second game is more combat focused than the first.

The fight mechanics themselves are based on Virtual Fighter so they are pretty competent at that, but they are not really what the games are about.

This image has showed up on Amazon pre-order listings. Forewarning, it looks like a build from late 2017, so far from the finished product (and not even reflective of the most recent screens).
