The environment and lightning look absolutely gorgeous to me!

I'll consider the models for what they are "WIP" models.

The logo thing is worrying me though... what is going on with that???

That logo looks like it was written by a right-handed person using their left hand. But the logo is definitely the least of my concerns.

Looking at it closer, I agree that Shenhua definitely needs more work than Ryo. Ryo's features are actually pretty damn close to the Dreamcast era's CG, though his eyes seem just a bit too big. Other than that, and the fact that I'm not liking the plastic-looking textures at all, Ryo is definitely getting there, though I certainly hope this isn't the final version. Still plenty of time for tweaks, though.

I like the new models. Ryo is looking more like himself but I never expected him to look exactly like his dreamcast model anyway. Take a look at characters as a part of a series. They never look exactly the same, and this is very different for us. But anyway, Ryo looks good, I'm content with how he looks but hopefully that won't be his final model? Who knows.

Shenhua hmm yes and no, she does look better then before and more herself but she definitely needs more work! She looks lifeless and she's meant to be a main character in Shenmue 3. Hopefully she will look better but I'm still happy with this, especially those enviroments, jesus they look good! It just makes me want the game more, can't even describe how much we can't wait for this game!

Brilliant! :rotflmao:

Although it's really not that bad! Nowhere near as bad as the papyrus logo.

Being in the press release (and I reckon in the unveiling of the game next week), I think the models and the logo are final, and I wouldn't expect them to change substantially in the future.

But they are perfectly fine to me!! Even in past materials there were subtle differences in the models between the in-game and passport versions, other promo renders, the Project Berkeley video, the Shenmue Online trailer, etc. (I specially disliked the Shenmue Online ones, which are generally beloved).

I'm really happy and moved by this appetizer and am eager to know more next week!

Everything else, no.

I'm sure these 2 models are a rushed mess someone made only for publishing matters only, there is no way kn the entire universe that these 2 impostors are the final ingame models. I would refuse to play only for that.

This does not look like Ryo or Shenhua.

This looks more like Ryo's plastic filipino cousin and Shenhua's plastic french auntie.

They need to just use the CG original models.

And why did they replace the original logo AGAIN ?

Stick to the originals.

Environments look good thus far, though.

The marketing campaign is starting, so the models are probably final.

I'm fine with them, but agree they could be better. However, need see them in motion first.

This is not the exact same imagen than before, There is no light reflects and the mountains in the back are missing, I suppose they will use this image as advertising?

I don't wanna be negative, but fugggg, that Shenhua looks like a downgrade from the previous version, like made in something like mixamo. Also this kinda means they're going for the more cartoony/animated/plasticky look (now I even miss the details of the muscular guy).

The locations looks wonderful and full of magic, really looking forward to it.
