About four months after the release of "Shenmue III," there was no particular announcement, but Yu Suzuki applied for an interview.
I would love them to release a Shenmue 4 with the Yakuza game engine. Those games look great and dont seem to cost a lot to make and they are probably better to me now then the Shenmue ganes. Shenmue 3 felt and looked like a cheaply made Indie game and whatever love i had for Shenmue 1 and 2, kind of faded when i played Shenmue 3. To me they tainted the Shenmue brand making number 3 how they did and im sure they lost other fans because of it as well. Im not even sure if i would play a number 4 (even though Shenmue used to be one of my best games) if it was made like number 3 was.
Yu Suzuki needs to release a numbered entry as parts/episodes kinda like Square is. It was obvious after finishing Shenmue 3 the game needed to be longer and that the final 1/4 was rushed like crazy he's vision for the the franchise is to ambitious for what he can afford these days with Kickstarter.
