Bit weird, but patch 1.03 apparently dropped the other day and now 1.04 dropped in Hong Kong and some other countries, but not the whole world. And here in the UK we're still on 1.02...

Part of the 1.04 patch notes say it makes preparations for the upcoming DLC.

Shenmue III Update 1.04 Patch Notes:

- Made adjustments to certain game contents.
- Optimized background displays.
- Made improvements to the conversation function.
- Updated localization texts and displays.
- Made adjustments to the credits roll.
- Made fixes to backer contents.
- Made preparations for DLC application.
- Other minor bug fixes.

Looks like the first DLC was announced, anyway. For what it's worth, I'm on v1.03 on PC.

I kind of like that Hard mode actually makes things more difficult than just making combat opponents stronger. Even playing on Hardest for roughly half of the game, I had pretty much no issues with money whatsoever. Also, the combat is a bit more intricate than it appears, and that's probably only apparent when you can't just brute force the opponent as easily. My only complaint might be that the jump from Hard to Hardest is a little too much. Like, there should probably be an intermediate level between them where the opponents can't just immediately stomp your face in, but still provide a real challenge.

That's not too surprising. Max Kung Fu level is 43, and that segment isn't really that difficult. If you want a challenge, you'd need to go to the Rose Garden, and go through all the fights there--or try the ending sequence on Hardest. That would definitely intensify things.
