Re: Update #85: Survey Info #2: $7M stretch goal reached!

the individual kanjis mean - strike, open. but according to jisho.org when combined it means だかい - dakai - 'break in the deadlock​' so maybe this is an indication of a successful counter attack. ie. the opponent grappled Ryo and he successfully executed a strike reversal. Great theory! best to wait...

Abe Store: Beta vs Release comparison

I've written a blog post looking how the Abe Store in Sakuragaoka used to look, in the development days before Shenmue's release. https://i.imgur.com/HXdyjPDl.jpg Did you know the Abe Store in Sakuragaoka was originally going to be called the "Saitō Store"? We look at this and other ways t...

Re: Shenmue - Return to Dobuita St. Trailer feat. Koralik+Yu

P.S. 100 Yen soda drinks in Shenmue are priced at 130 Yen irl, the inflation is real! :O :D Yup, that's true. But there's actually one particular machine further along on Dobuita Street that still sells Coke cans at 100 yen which is perfect for recreating the Ryo drinking experience. I like to thin...

The "AI Battling" Stretch Goal

https://i.imgur.com/nik42aSm.jpg The "AI Battling" stretch goal coming up at $7m was highlighted in the last Kickstarter Update. I don't think it's a topic that has come up very much to date, so I wrote a short post if anyone needs a reminder about what it is. I also clarify in the post t...

Re: Choubu Inn Floor Plans | Translation & Commentary

It's kind of interesting that Ryo's room at the Inn is in the same place that Xiuying's room was at the Da Yuan Apartments. Probably just a coincidence, but at least it'll be easy to remember. That's a good point, I wouldn't be surprised if it was deliberate. Definitely easier to locate a room at t...

Re: 1999 Interview with Yu Suzuki "15 Secrets of Shenmue"

Switch, I've been running across a lot of old Weekly Am2 interviews with Shenmue staff. Would you be interested in translating any of these? Most are rather short. Absolutely. If you'd like to send me the links I will add them to the blog's list of candidate future topics and see when I can fit one...

1999 Interview with Yu Suzuki "15 Secrets of Shenmue"

https://i.imgur.com/xz5MmOV.jpg I've posted up a translation of an interview Yu Suzuki held with the media on 18th January 1999, soon after the successful Shenmue premiere events. Shenmue was still somewhat shrouded in mystery, so the "15 Secrets" this article refers to - while not repres...

Re: Shenmue Inspired Travel Series

Great video, and nice identification of the Forbidden City in the concept tile art, it's certainly a match!

(I guess Akira hopped over the barrier to stand on that path :) ).
