Shredingskin more or less said it for me, but the limited scale of Hellblade allowed Ninja Theory to pour as much time and money into their central character as they did.

Even at the AAA level I'm not sure we've seen large casts of unique NPCs made with photogrammetry. Maybe a couple generations down the line, in GTA 8 or something.

Took a look at Corey Marshall's Facebook (inspired by a backer on Kickstarter) and saw that he says he's supposed to start recording his lines at the end of May.

*still pretty dismayed they're spending time and money on an English dub, but hey...it's news! After playing many, many hours of Yakuza 0, I can say that I have not missed the English dub of Yakuza 1 at all (0 is my first Yakuza since Yakuza 1).

Or at least don't have it dubbed by Americans. British shenmue dub>American Shenmue dub

Lol, I got banned again! Unfortunately, I accidentally saw your post so I have to get this off my chest. You may be dismayed by the inclusion of the English version but fans like me would be gutted if it wasn't. So you have to take into account the likes and preferences of others as well. If for example, Shenmue III was only going to be released in English and no Japanese then you wouldn't catch me saying "oh well, it sucked anyway so I don't care". I would instead be saying "while I prefer the English dub, I definitely feel for those that grew up with the Japanese one. It's a damn shame we couldn't have both".

Anyway rant over. And goodbye!

The real shenmue 3 trailer still hasn't surpassed the fake one in views.

IMO, it's money that's better used elsewhere, especially when we consider the quality of the original dubs. I'm not trying to take anything away from anyone; I played both Shenmue 1 and 2 in English, so I have no experience with the Japanese dub aside from watching other people play through the games. Either way, it's a fact I'll live with.

Am I supposed to know who you are?

The Gamescom progress teaser on Playstation's channel is also currently at 930,000+ views. Is there really a fake one out there with more views?

Possibly referring to this old fan-made trailer, a ripped copy of which has over a million views. It did take years to get there though.

The little girl's face is quite... disturbing. Her art looks different from what we've seen so far. It does look Yakuza - or should I say Shenmue? The other ones were factually cartoonish since some 2D model sheets have been made public and the 3D artists trying to strictly replicate them. Or maybe I've a bias idea of what should be a cartonnish child?

Totally random thing here, but it just occurred to me: I really, really hope the dub for Shenmue III doesn't include a ton of "wink to the audience" nods to the old dubs. With as long as Shenmue has been around, it's had plenty of time to gain a reputation on phrases like "let's get sweaty," Ryo asking about sailors and whatnot, that kind of shit. I just really hope the English voice actors don't feel the need to call back to that stuff, like they think they're being clever or something. I hope the dub is played totally straight, just like the first two games were.

I'll probably opt for the Japanese track anyway (long as it's included), but I'd still prefer not to have anything groan-inducing like that from the English one.

Absolutely. Sailor jokes and the like can fuck off.

I suppose most of that would be in the hands of the translation and localisation team. I hope they resist the temptation to go for some easy memes.
