New Screens + Note From Yu via Playstation Blog

Postby Spaghetti » Tue Aug 22, 2017 2:55 am

Hello PlayStation fans! This is Yu Suzuki, director of Shenmue III.

It’s hard to believe so much time has passed since we debuted the game at Sony’s E3 2015 press conference. Since then, the team has been extremely busy developing the game in Tokyo, but now it’s time to come up for air.

To coincide with Gamescom 2017, we are happy to share the news that we have inked a publishing partnership with Deep Silver! From the early days on the project, the team at Deep Silver really impressed me with their deep passion for the series and their desire to work with us to deliver a proper sequel that all fans will love.

To celebrate the news, I would like to share with you a teaser video built from a small slice of an in-development build of the game. As you will see, the latest chapter in Ryo and Shenhua’s journey begins with a beautiful set piece in China. You’ll also see that we’re aiming to significantly upgrade the game’s visuals, and you may also notice a new character during that quick glimpse of our new battle gameplay…

I’m pleased to be able to offer a small peek into what we’ve been building thus far, and I am looking forward to the opportunity to show you more as we get closer to our 2018 release.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to all those who have supported me and the team. I will continue to work hard to deliver the best possible realization of Shenmue III.

Yu Suzuki

Yeah. I'm kinda blown away by some of these details, holy shit. There's some kinda dirt on Ryo's jacket when he's in his fighting pose.

The lighting effects are so unreal! The teaser one was a bit overdone IMO, but if these screenshots are actually the desired direction, then I really thank God we are getting to play Shenmue 3 during our lifetime. Look at that jacket and its dirt and wear, and Ryo's face!

PS. Who's that? Is this a Yu Suzuki cameo?

I think this is my favourite one. Everything about this scenery screams Shenmue to me. Can't wait to explore this place for myself.

Peter may have been right about old footage being used in the teaser. Some of this, the twin giant mirrors especially, are significantly improved from the video.

Did he just say Battle Gameplay?!


Environments have always looked great, even at E3 2015.

sand4fish, I was just about to post about it 8)

Either a cameo, a placeholder for a backer or a piece of in-game artwork that hasn't been created yet.

Might have been talking about the video. Or maybe something is coming out later.

Or it's a mistranslation.

Or... there was gameplay in the teaser.

The models in these screens look so much better than in the trailer. Ryo does look younger but when you think about it, he's only 18, if anything he looked too old in the older games. He looks like a pure kid in this, more legit, might make you more afraid for him when he gets the shit kicked out of him.

Can't wait to see Lan Di's model. I'm happy with the jacket now. After being used to the textures of his jacket for 15 years on the DC I forget that they are stuck textures and these are actually moving textures so it has to look more dynamic, same goes for his hair. The hands look really goos too. If they can get the facial animation right and the lighting on the faces right I think we'll have ourselves a winner.
