Shenmue III gives a new glimpse on its protagonists and beautiful environments with new images.
Dear lord when is this coming out? It's been in silence for so long and all they have to show is a few new pics
Second half of 2018. They delayed it back in June.
I'm calling it now, this game is going to be a disaster.
@Bahamut ....probably ...i bit agree ...they used the pathetic U4 engine to rush the game out and the bad results are already obvious from Ryo bad design ....i hope not though ....definately will not achieve the legendary status of previous entries..... Yakuza series is the new Shenmue , either people like it or not
naruga -"they used the pathetic U4 engine" the engine is fine, how developers use it is another matter.
@Bahamut- I don't see that happening. Shenume as a concept is pretty exact. Travel, work, use money from work to buy and collect stuff, QTE some dudes while also fighting annnd, story. I don't really see them messing that up too much, its a concept that exist so.....yea. @Nar- I love the Yakuza series, but many aspects are not like Shenmue, mainly not being able to actually look at items collected in terms of interaction, many, many games are not like Shenmue in that regard. I don't think the engine matters either, Shenmue was never really a game about feel or anything like that. I think they will be fine. I not worried about what Ryo looks like bud, that just irrelevant to me, I'm simply happy to be getting Shemnue 3 AT ALL! We can have both the Shenmue and Yakuza series side by side. Yakuza is a spiritual successor to Shenume, but trust me, it has enough missing features from Shenmue 1 and 2 to warrant a Shenmue 3. This doesn't need to be an either or (as I'm not sure why this site is immaturely obsessed with that, as if they can only have one game smh)
http://cdn3.dualshockers.co... http://cdn4.dualshockers.co... $6,762,419 pledged and only 2 pictures. 8 million for some footage....next year.
So it would be best to spoil the game? I see..
Sounds like Star Citizen....................... .........................
I still think the game will be great, but i'm not a fan of the character designs, especially Shenhua. That doesn't look like Shenhua at all really. Her eyes are too big, her fringe is too short, her nose looks too pointy, the mouth isn't quite right. Change the clothes and you wouldn't even know it's her. With modern graphics, i don't see why they couldn't get her to look like this https://vignette1.wikia.noc... Ryo doesn't look very good either, but at least i can tell it's him. I think another problem is that they look a bit too cartoony for me.
The problem is it's being published by Deep Silver which means I'm no longer buying it. I'll play it, but I'm not giving Deep Silver anything.
What is the issue with Deep Silver?
Same people that published Mighty No. 9
I've simply never been positive that they could make a legit shenmue game for $6MM. The 1&2 took, what, $70MM? In the early 2000s. I see no way for this to not be a terrible game, disappointing for hardcore fans at best.
Shenmue is probably my highest treasured gaming franchise ever...its right up there with Halo for me. However, I'm not expecting much from this game at all other than closure for the story. In fact, I'm much more interested in Sega's remakes of 1&2. Would love to repeat them with adjustments made to the way Ryo controls.
Please oh please just be good, hell I'd have settled for a Dreamcast looking/playing Shenmue 3 if you just kept it true to the originals with a conclusion to the story.
They could make the graphics and gameplay the same as the first one and i will still buy it day one.
