Just someone PM me the story. I have no interest in airing petty intrigue but it seems incredible that someone here IS actually working on Shenmue 3.

I believe the person we're referring to isn't actually "working" on Shenmue III in the literal sense.

Anyway, it's UPDATE WEEK. Get hype(?)

A new screen would be nice, but I'd take a progress update interview with Yu. They need to do a bit more than the last three months though, four updates in a row without seeing the game is a bit disappointing considering Yu seemed enthusiastic about showing the actual progress through development. Then again, for all the shit they got for clearly early work I can't blame them for holding back.

I think if there was more to show, we would see it in the KS updates. The game is in a very early (yet, despite what some say, also surprisingly advanced for 1 year) state. I honestly don't think we'll see a new trailer, let alone gameplay, until the middle of next year, or possibly later. (I do suspect they'll miss the proposed launch window by a bit, though I'll be pleased to be wrong.)

The only major Shenmue news we might get anytime soon is if Sega decides to re-release 1 & 2. And after their E3 showing... I will be surprised if Sega reveals anything all year that garners my interest, frankly.

That said... an extra year, or even two, is a small price for finally getting Shenmue III. And I think it'll be worth it to wait until they actually have something IMPRESSIVE to show at an E3. Maybe next year.

Ah, this isn't true unfortunately. We know they're holding stuff back until it's more presentable, which likely accounts to why the Kickstarter updates are more about general progress (mo-cap, storyboards) than a specific in-depth look at everything they've got.

It's a reasonable position to have. They know other Kickstarters have been burned by over-promising and showing stuff off too early, so they're playing it smartly and cautiously to wait until the game is in a state to speak for itself.

Perhaps. I still don't expect to see anything substantial anytime soon, though. Despite that, they're in great shape for one year.

No that was for an interview.

My original dinner was for Monaco, but on the last day of the KS, someone dropped out of a Japan slot so I jumped on it.
