It is indeed possible. This FAQ should help you. Follow this link, and then scroll down until you see the "US-to-UK save conversion FAQ", and click on it.

Q. How do I get the Bad Ending?
The Bad Ending is triggered on June 31st; so it is a punishment for taking too long to finish the game. The best way to get through the days fast is to keep failing the event at Zhangyu’s Barber Shop, by pressing A every time.
You can download the Bad Ending here;

Q. I’m having trouble unlocking everything on the Shenmue Collection, help!
Here’s a useful guide;

Q. I’m having trouble getting all the snapshots needed on the Xbox version, help!/How do I unlock the sidestory comics?
Here’s a useful guide;

Q. Are Ziming and Lan Di the same person?
There is sufficient evidence to suggest that Ziming and Lan Di are NOT the same person.
Firstly, Ziming’s full name is Ziming Hong; and we know now that Lan Di’s real name is Zhao Longsun. Two different names.
Also, this sidestory comic that can be unlocked on the Xbox version of Shenmue II seems to suggest they aren’t the same person; (take particular notice of the last page)

While the figure of the present-day Ziming is quite shadowy, you can see clearly that it is not Lan Di.

This is a picture of the four leaders of the Chi You Men that was released on

While the other three with Lan Di are obscured, it is immediately obvious that it is Niao Sun to the right of Lan Di (You can find more information on her here;
, who is featured with Ziming in the aforementioned sidestory comic. And that seems to be Ziming on the far right in this picture. This picture should show you again that Lan Di and Ziming are not the same person;
On a sidenote, some people often believe a scar can be seen on the face of the young Ziming, like Lan Di’s, however if you look closer, it seems to just be dirt, like on Wong’s face.

By the way, the identity of the person on the far left of the Four Leaders pic is not yet known.

Q. What does Joy say to Ryo outside the Come Over Guest House on the morning before his first day of work?
The language Joy speaks in this scene is Chinese, and what she says translates to "Did you have pleasant dreams?" This is understood to be a traditional morning greeting in China.

Q. Is it possible to say goodbye to Joy when leaving Wan Chai?
Nope. Although, if you didn’t trigger the conversation with her at Fortune’s Pier where you talk about Master Chen and Gui Zhang before the day where you have to say goodbye to everyone, you can do it on that very day. Ryo doesn’t say goodbye to her though.

Q. Is there anywhere you can train alone?
Unfortunately not. While in Wan Chai, spar with Jianmin. In Kowloon there are many street fights you can participate in. But there is nowhere you can train alone.

Q. How do I get the Duck Races?
You can only do this at Disc 2. First, visit Tomato Convenience Store at Golden
Qr. and make a friend with Izumi. Go to Pigeon Park and talk to Eileen
Edelweiss who training Tai Chi arts and facing the ocean. She should talk to
you first and challenge you into a fight.

Now go to Green Market Qr. And enter the alleyway next Green Market Pawnshop
where there are Roll It on Top and Lucky Hit Stands. Go straight when you enter
the alley and you will see a store where a man is arranging some cardboard
boxes. If you have not followed the steps above, then the back door will be
still nailed-shut. But if you've done the steps, the back door should be
opened. Enter the back door to the vacant lot. There's some free collectibles
and a Big Bronze Medal for you. Take them all.

If you go to Pine Arcade game, the 3F should be opened. Go to 3F and choose
[Participate] when the man asks you and pay $20. Here you have to fight Eileen.
You will get Big Silver Medal. You can participate again and this time you will
have Izumi as your opponent. It's the remixed Tomato's theme song when you're
fighting her. She has a lot of deadly moves. But you can win easily by avoiding
her attack and do the triple punch combo. When her gauge is already near the
limit, she will try to grab you in her ultimate move. This time you will have
to do NQTE by pressing [X+B,Y+A]. Quite difficult isn't it? Not only that, you
will have to do this for several times until you win. If you failed, Izumi will
knock you down by her ultimate move "Viva Sakura Festival".

After you win, Izumi will promise to take you to an interesting place. Now go
to Tomato Convenience Store and press X Button when you're facing to Izumi. She
will take you to Wise Man's Qr. where the duck race is being held. Read the
"Gambling" section for the rule.

You also can participate your own duck in the race. To get your own duck, you
must go to Man Mo Temple's backyard and you can press the X Button at the tree
again to catch some more leaves. Catch two or more leaves in one catch. Do this
two times. Next, a white feather should fall with the other leaves. Catch the
feather and Ryo should say "Damn!". Choose [Catch] to catch the duck and you
will have it as a key item.

If you go to the Duck Race, you can pay $50 to participate your duck in the
race. Press R Trigger to accelerate and D-Pad to control the duck. It reminds
me of the forklift race from Shenmue I. Win the race and you will have the Big
Gold Medal as your prize.

After you win the gold medal, I think it's impossible to win again that race
since some baby ducks race against your duck. They have incredible speed and

Re: Random Gaming Thoughts (Read OP Before Posting)

I was lucky enough to have SMS as a primary console when younger, my Dad opted for that over the NES. Back then all of the kids who had an NES always wanted to come over and play the SMS using the 3D glasses for Missile Defense 3D and other supported titles. Not to mention playing actual quality arcade games at home, like Hang On and Outrun. I still have it along with all of the accessories and such in pristine condition. We had an NES to boot as an Uncle handed one over with a ton of games (he owned a rental shop), so I experienced just about everything it had to offer and I too loved it. The Sega Master System however, that was the console of choice due to it's innovation. There's a lot of Sega fans because of later reasons, though I'm happy to have experienced it all since the literal beginning.

Support Shenmue in a big German poll

The pretty big German print videogame magazine M! Maniac is having a voting competition for the best videogame of all time on their website. It's not some fan project, it's a poll of one of the leading German magazines for videogames and I'm not affiliated with it. I registered here a long time ago. You can check that, if you think I'm a spammer :)
The competition uses some sort of playoff system, where two games compete over 24 hours to advance to the next round. In the first round Shenmue has to receive more votes than Assassin's Creed II, so the competition is pretty stiff. The voting started two hours ago, so you have 22 more hours to vote for Shenmue and bring it one step closer to victory and a proof of demand for the game by fans in Germany. If you want to support Shenmue here is the link: . If there are people interested in the competition here, I would also inform you, if Shenmue makes it to the second round and needs votes again :)

Re: Toshihiro Nagoshi asked about Shenmue?

Shame. Also in this interview he talks about how there is no future of Yakuza on Wii U which begs the question then why do the HD port?
Guess you can't fault his honesty... :???:

Is there anyone at SEGA truly wanting to work on Shenmue if they were allowed? How many people are left from that team?
While not actually AT Sega, Sumo Digital have expressed a number of times that they'd love to take on Shenmue III. Obviously they have no influence on that happening though.
True. Money talks I guess. Same with Monster Hunter and Dragon Quest. They just handed out some cash under the table and suddenly a series that is more common on Sony appears on the Nintendo.

Sumo I love. I also feel bad for them in a way. They are more SEGA than Sega is right now. They are in their hearts old school fans that bleed blue. So must be frustrating they are limited to racing(which is excellent) and Tennis games. They really should be allowed to open up. SEGA should do with Sumo what Nintendo did with Retro. Make them in a premiere 1st party developer and hand them loved franchises.

The Chiyoumen are a major crime organization based on the Chinese mafia. They are involved in drug and weapon and stolen artifact trafficking and have great influence over the Chinese government. They are lead by a mysterious leader called "Tian Di" or Tentei and have four executives in charge of 4 different regions or directions who are represented by the four heavenly beasts metaphorically. As for Master Baihu, it is highly unlikely we will meet him again. He is supposed to be the final test for Ryo to join the Yellowhead elite.

Lan Di => Dragon
Ziming => Tiger
Niao Sun => Phoenix
Unknown Master => Snake Tortoise

We know that Lan Di is the primary antagonist thus far, however, the back story of Shenmue is more complicated than meets the eye and involves various themes such as revenge and Chinese folklore (The Shenmue Tree and the legend of Bailu Village). We also have 3 other villians and a mysterious "god father" like figure who oversees the Chiyoumen's operations (Tentai). Hints and clues suggest that Niao Sun and Ziming are involved in Shenmue III's plot as Ryo is given the comma bead by Xiuying and the comic given. Lan Di will most likely not have been fought so soon in Shenmue III.

Many valuable questions must be answered in Shenmue III:

1. How did Iwao meet Sunming Zhao?
2. What did they do in Bailu village? Did they both train under the instructions of a village master?
3. Are we done with Yuanda Zhu's involvement in the story?
4. Will we ever meet up with Guizhang or Ren again?
5. Will Ryo have to visit this Meng Cun area, where Iwao is supposed to have killed Sunming?
6. What of Shenhua's stepfather?
7. What is the purpose of the sword of seven stars?
8. Would Lan Di of arrived in Bailu village already before Ryo get's there? And what exactly is Lan Di going to Bailu village for? Yuanda Zhu never fully explains.
9. What is Shenhua's real father's role/identity?
10. What connection did Shenhua's stepfather have with Sunming Zhao?
11. Will Ryo ever pay back Fuku-san for losing his lifesavings? (j/k)

Haha thanks guys! Can't believe some of you still remember me, it's been about 10 years i think :D...

Couldn't figure out my log in, I thought my username was jamesbrown, but i can't get it to work is me :D

Super happy that I won, I couldn't believe it...I must have been playing for like 6 hours straight for like 3 or 4 nights remembering all the different enemies, what works on them, and what doesn't, and to be honest, I think it was like the last 20 and the boss that I managed to take out pretty quick, cause watching the video back now, the start is slightly embarrassing haha, me running kicking thin air, hehe. But yea awesome stuff! I'm surprised that only 9 people entered?

Although I won't be crazy active, I hope to post again from time to time, especially since this competition reunited me with the game I love, and it's amazing community that has supported and stuck around this long. It's nice to still see some familiar names.

All the best guys, and thanks for putting on this comp, I really enjoyed it. I'd have bought the statue anyways, but this is fantastic!

Re: XBox One

It seems apart from the 24 hr thing MS now have a set up similar to Steam with some other stuff that itunes and the amazon stores use so small hope they also do some Steam like deals.

They have improved recent deals on the 360 but that could be just a fire sale type thing for long time owners looking to upgrade this year?

Michael Pachter thinks publishers might actually wait a few years to start blocking used games. Personally I think they should have just worked out something better with stores, For instance no game can be traded in for its first 3-6 months on sale.[Which is when it sells the most anyways]

The Xbox One does not have a similar setup as Steam and it is a lame and stupid argument. The only thing similar is that Microsoft have built a digital distribution service, but they also tie it to psychical media that casts the illusion of game ownership.

You can not play offline on Xbox One for more than 24 hours.
You can play offline on Steam indefinitely.

You can not play the same game on at least two Xbox One consoles at the same time.
You can play the same game offline with Steam on as many PCs as you want.

There will most likely not be major sales on Xbox One. (GOD are almost the same price as new games MONTHS after release)
There are deep sales frequently on Steam. Some up to 95% off .

There will most likely not be any such thing as a Humble Bundle on Xbox One.
There are weekly and publisher focused Humble Bundles where you can set your own price point, and decide where your money goes in which you can access your game on Steam.

DRM is always required on the Xbox One.
There are games that have zero DRM on Steam, and you can even launch them while Steam is not running .

Microsoft services are the only markets for those wanting to get their games on the Xbox One, thus blocking competition.
On Steam there are various markets that offer competitive prices, forcing Steam to compete and offer better benefits.

You most likely will have to pay for a subscription service such as Xbox Live to gain any of the “features” such as digital distribution, cloud saving, playing online.
Game publishers set subscription models on Steam, a lot of them free. There's free cloud saving, and every other such benefits that Xbox One does not offer .

The Xbox One will probably cost over 300$
Steam costs 0.00$

Consoles are not known for modding (at least legitimately), and the Xbox One won't be the place to do it either.
Steam encourages modding, has SteamWorks for publishers and other free tools for developers and consumers such as free source engines, free film makers, free game tools .

The Xbox One does not offer backwards capability.
Steam offers full backwards capability , the software you have now and before will likely run on any computer as powerful or more powerful than the one it was originally installed on.

But somehow Xbox One is similar to steam. Apples are similar to oranges too, in that their fruit. Aside from that they're completely different.

Re: Have you given up or still hopeful?

I've been wrong about a lot of things in my life.. But i'm sure that Shenmue will see the light of day. It's too good of a damn story to just throw away. With these Next gen consoles there are no excuses why it shouldn't be great either, Hell port it to dreamcast and it will still be magic. I believe Yu-San wants to make it happen, I really do. Sega just hasnt made up their mind to put in production or maybe it is secretly in production who knows.. Shenmue will have its chance to shine and it will big time because I know that Sega will promote it very well to the mass media. I haven't given up yet, just impatient..

Re: UPDATE JUNE 2013 "Yu Suzuki & Shenmue at GDC"

Latest UPDATE: JUNE 2013 (This happened in March)

I actually met with Yu Suzuki again but this time @GDC 2013. (about 2 months ago)

And here are two pictures we got together :D

Pic 2

Pic 1

GDC 2013 is the same event as he met with Marc Cerny (perhaps, later on in the afternoon cuz we met at noon),

For those who don't know (I know you know): Marc Cerny is lead architect of the Sony PlayStation 4 & the one who interviewd Yu back in GDC11 and he's a genius as well.

How we met?

I was doing my visit @GDC and had NO IDEA that Yu Suzuki might come to GDC 13,
so I was wondering around that I suddenly saw a familiar face @ a booth (he was almost invisible) xD
I waited for him to finish his visit while asking from the lady @the next booth to PLEASE GET READY TO TAKE OUR PIC!
She was like, who's he? I was like he's a GOD of gaming! (later after he left and She found out who was he, she said

"Oh, I love Virtua Cop" xD

She said Ok!, so Yu suddenly saw me xD AND remembered me from GDC11,

I was like Hello Suzuki san, I am Ali, long time no see!
He said, Oh! Hi, yes long time no see!

Sorry guys, can't remember the exact every line of our short conversation but anyhow:

I was like WOW! we didn't know you coming this year (especially after his GDC12 absence).
I was shocked to be able to find him accidentally between so many people!
I immediately asked him can we have a picture :)

So, that lady at the next booth took our picture and then I talked to Yu,

Like how are you doing?, when did you arrive?
He was I arrived just now in the city and I'm hungry xD
I'm glad that I met you again, we look forward your new games...we will be waiting.
(I think I mentioned that I still have his biz card from back in GDC11 too but I am sure he remembers)

Anyways, I told him once again, it was very nice to see him, and wish him good luck.

So I let him go to rest and eat *however he continued visiting the expo" :D

Funny how,

later on within half an hour I bumped into Hideo Kojima as well (AGAIN just like GDC11),
this was like a repeat of history! xD

However, I spotted Kojima when he came out from back of his GDC booth suddenly xD and while he was running for a sec, he went eye to eye with me, LMFAO xD I know he's even busier that Yu with all that MGS V, Fox Engine & etc flying around, so I didn't even bother to get any close to him till next time.

Well, after all , GDC is a biz event, not a fan event.

The day after, I saw Yu Suzuki and Cerny's pictures in media,
so I decided to do not post my meeting with him here, until I back to Dojo again cuz I knew you know he's been @GDC13.

My personal thoughts on the current Yu Suzuki and Shenmue's feature

All I know is Yu Suzuki is back, and making games, he just released his latest game on iTunes & Google App store (if you check his growing studio's web page you can find it and don't forget to get his game somehow and give it a high rank 5/5), here's also a video of the game I'm talking about:

But the question is now burning even more:

Has he have made any progress with Marc Cerny or someone from Nintendo or even MS for teaming up with SEGA to finally bring us a Complete Shenmue Experience on PS4 or any other console?

A deal between SEGA and Sony/MS/Nintendo must happen if SEGA doesn't want to tackle this single handed.

I believe SEGA can still pull it off,

They have Team Ryu Ga Gotoku (Yakuza) headed by Nagoshi (he was so close to Suzuki back in AM2) along the current SEGA-AM2 (VF, Miku, Ghost Squad, etc...) plus Yu is still an adviser to SEGA,

So he can remain a key role to next Shenmue...

Let's say now that E3 has come and is gone, it's about time for SEGA to decide what console and when, from now on it's gonna be interesting, and I am sure the Shenmue nation won't stop posting on SEGA's social media until they finally do it. :)

My advice to SEGA is:

Don't wait anymore, get that next gen AM2 or Yakuza engine running along team Yakuza making assets and even re-using assets from Yakuza series along whatever is left from Shenmue III Dreamcast (I am sure, there's a none finished Shenmue 3 DC some where, if not what is Niao Sun video?) plus Yu Suzuki and YS NET can supervise along bringing their social media tools (from Shenmue City) to a Shenmue Complete exprience.

GIVE US SHENMUE BACK BY HANDS OF SUZUKI, we will do our best to support Shenmue "TRUST US"

We can make lots of fan art, videos, musics, even fan-made games or write and spread the word about Shenmue more!


"Just make sure, you'll release it on a console that people will actually BUY" and gonna last 5+ years for sure.



I just added some more stuff to this post along adding everything I posted here to the first post of the topic.

I will keep updating the first one and this one if I remember or want to add anything else.

Kowloon Walled City recreated as Arcade in Japan

Every city has its bad parts and areas to avoid, but there’s no denying that these less favorable areas give even the poshest urban centers something to talk about. While Kowloon Walled City no longer exists, its fixture in popular imagination will likely persist for decades, if not centuries.

In 1987, the city housed 33,000 people in 6.5 acres and was largely lawless, though informal social structures naturally emerged among the citizens. The city, as you might expect, has been the inspiration and setting for many fictional works, from books to movies to video games. And, now, it’s provided inspiration for a unique business venture in Japan.

That’s right, Kowloon Walled City now exists in Japan as a game center! Which, when you think about it, is either incredibly fitting or incredibly inappropriate. We’re still not sure which.

The game center, which is called “Digital Kowloon City,” is located in Kawasaki City, just south of Tokyo. Built in the spirit of the original Kowloon Walled City, the game center’s exterior and interior both look horribly rusted and uncared for.

Re: Iwao's Scroll | Welcome Edition

Thanks Peter. Yama and I spent a lot of time thinking about ways to set up new features for the site and we ultimately decided that the scroll was the way to go in terms of being able to talk about a wide variety of subjects.

On a side note, I encourage everybody to go and check out Andrew's work which we profiled in the scroll and to visit his page for his upcoming project, Ryo's Footsteps 2 . His hard work and dedication to the series is nothing short of commendable.

Cool idea. But why "hazure"?

I wanted to have something involved with the Tomato Mart be a part of that particular section and I thought using 'hazure' would be interesting. While receiving the hazure card in the Shenmue's raffle means you don't win anything, it still means that you made some sort of effort in order to draw a ticket to begin with. The same goes with the award that is within our scroll feature; you don't win anything tangible but you are nonetheless recognized for performing/creating something valuable.

Hope everybody enjoys the feature and hopefully it can lead to some lively and creative discussion moving forward.

Re: Shenmue Bicycle Mod Project by James Reiner (Progress Vi

If you guys have any questions, feel free to PM me.

This was an idea that was brought to my attention and now that I am done with school, I figure that I should work on it.

I will hand the project off if needed.

This mod is based on ideas given to me from various members here.

Shenmue support on Facebook

Just thought I'd bring this to the attention of anyone who hasn't seen it yet.

We all know that Shenmue is a frequent topic of "spam" on Sega's Facebook page, but the fans came out in force in response to a post about E3. If you ever wanted reassurance about the passion that exists for this series, have a browse through the comments above.

Re: Shenmue Character Voices: Ryo Hazuki (English)

Ok I narrowed it all down for you. Most of Ryo's dialogue include "Excuse me", "I see", " Is that so?" So be sure to include those. Then comes the common "Do you/Where's" questions with black suits, cars, Chinese, tattoos, sailors, Charlie, warehouses and so on. Lastly is the dialogue from the game cut-scenes I listed below.

Re: XBox One

If MS annouced Shenmue 3 as a xbone exclusive, that would be the greatest turn around and come back in console history. I am convinced that if MS announce Shenmue 3 they will win the generation, and garner parades of adoring and forgiving fans lining the streets to embrace the launch of xbone. If sacrificing every right and piece of self respect I have is the price I have to pay for Shenmue, I will gladly kiss MS's feet. But Blue Dragon 2 I can live without.

Re: XBox One

Not buying the console is your choice, but the belief that boycotting the Xbox One will make any difference in the industry is misguided at best.
One person "boycotting" Xbox One (or in other words, voting with their wallet for another console they prefer) won't change the industry. But if enough people make that individual choice, then of course it will change the industry. What's the point in trying to maintain publisher relations and impose tighter restrictions on users if it's losing you customers? There comes a point where the trade-off isn't worth it. Will we reach that point? It remains to be seen. But to say it can't make any difference is a depressingly defeatist attitude to take, not just in something "as trivial as entertainment" but in any aspect of life.

Re: Random Gaming Thoughts (Read OP Before Posting)

As good as Generations was, I'll always have a special place in my nostalgic heart for Adventure. I like Adventure 2 as well, but 1 just feels special to me, spent so much time on that game. I honestly feel just as nostalgic for Adventure 1 as I do for Mario 64, even though it was rather flawed.
