I like how they're more advanced looking than the older games and yet... worse.

That music though. Shivers.


I watched the trailer this morning before reading anyone's reaction. I came here to post and pleased (but sad) that everyone's reaction seems to be the same. Great music, great backgrounds. But the characters look like they've been taken straight out of the Dreamcast/PS1 era and update with 1080p graphics and high res textures. They look blocky and stilted. So bad are they I wondering if this is not down to poor quality control but perhaps a deliberate decision by Yu Suzuki to have them match the original games? If so then the decision is wrong because dated graphics spoil the immersion.

Not quite the same but Tim Schafer left Grim Fandango with the original graphics and all the media raved about its authenticity and criticised anyone who wanted fresh graphics. But in subsequent Tim Schafer re-releases he updated the graphics!

Game Watch Japan has published a very interesting interview with Suzuki-san, the interview took place during Gamescom and includes some really insightful and interesting information about Shenmue III, here's some of it:

-The released Shenmue III teaser footage is real-time in-game graphics.

-All character models are temporary and subject to change.

-Facial animations were initially implemented but have been removed about a month ago.

-The teaser was especially made for Gamescom 2017, no further plans to show more of the game at this year's Gamescom or Tokyo Game Show. However, a full-scale promotion will take place next year.

-Deep Silver will publish the game internationally, and they'll provide budget and promotional support. A publisher for Japan is to be decided.

-Suzuki-san would like to continue the series in Shenmue IV if possible.

-Suzuki-san is not interested in forcing the Shenmue story to complete in Shenmue III.

-Shenmue III will take around 30 hours of gameplay to complete.

-The fighting engine in Shenmue III is being built from scratch, and unlike Shenmue II it won't use the Virtua engine.

-A system that allows phone calls with characters from Shenmue and Shenmue II is planned for Shenmue III.

-Suzuki-san would like to bring as many voice actors from the previous games as possible, but some are retired now, he will audition a new voice actress for Shenhua.

-OST from Shenmue and Shenmue II will probably be reused in Shenmue III.

-The new partnership with Deep Silver is strong and it's aimed to improve the Shenmue III experience beyond what was initially planned on the Kickstarter.

Any confirmation on the HD releases of the first two games yet? I'm sure I'll end up getting this but would really need to revisit the originals as I honestly can't remember all that much about them anymore!

The only plot things I really remember are that is set in the 80s, your dad gets killed (murdered?) at the start, there's some dragon mask or mirror that acts as the games macguffin and that had something to do with why your dad got killed. Oh and there's an evil bloke wearing robes who is the baddie but doesn't really do much as far as I recall. Other than that I just remember poking about in your house, Ryo saying "I see" a lot, and driving a forklift around the docks!

You could use the capsule machines at the grocery store and if you played at Christmas Santa would turn up. There was a box of kittens in there somewhere too.

I haven't finished the second Shenmue so I wouldn't mind if Sega did release them for this generation.

Almost looks like a game funded by Kickstarter rather the most expensive game ever made.

It's exactly what I expected.

Report: Shenmue HD Collection for PS4 and Xbox One possibly leaked

Following Czech-based retailer Alza's leak (?) of a Bayonetta and Vanquish double pack, it seems there's more where that came from. The same retailer has posted a "Shenmue 1 & 2 Pack" for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Adding fuel to the fire is Slovakian retailers Heureka GetGame and MadGamer all having the same listings.

Unfortunately, that's all the info we have right now. And bear in mind, this is NOT a confirmation of this being a real product at all. That said, it wouldn't be a surprise if it was given the adoration the gaming populace has for the franchise. Don't forget, SEGA themselves has said that they do want to release a Shenmue HD Collection. Also, it might be a good way to promote the upcoming Shenmue 3 and to ensure younger fans experience what the hype is all about.

Once we know more, we'll be sure to let you know. We've contacted SEGA and asked for a statement and will update the story if they respond
.

Hopefully, Sega will announce it at TGS or Sony's conference just before Christmas.
