Not seeing any hair on Chai. Seems bald as ever from what I can tell.

I think she's meant to be the owner of the choubu inn. I'm getting serious Wendy Oldbag vibes from her Image

I'm really curious to know what Chai's role in the game is. I thought it would have been in a flashback but it seems like he appears in Choubu Image

Chai's role is to get his creepy ass beat.

Yeah I don't think Chai will last more than a few seconds against Ryo anymore, seeing how much he learned during the events of Shenmue II. But then again he seems to never be truly defeated and who knows what he learned in all that time.

Chai could come back with a weapon I suppose. Ryo might be stronger and smarter now, but a blade is a blade after all...

Either that or he becomes a joke character. Or just uses his sneaky ways to mess with Ryo another way.

I kind of enjoy the idea of Chai being truly undefeatable. No matter how many times Ryo kicks his ass, he comes back for more. I guess this is sort of what Yu meant about Chai being a character to easily slot into a scene.

He's the only one (that we know of) with connections to the Chiyoumen who knows that Ryo has the mirror, So I guess he still has an important role.

I just want to know how the hell he got from the middle of Hong Kong ocean to Choubu. Was he silently stalking Ryo during the events of Shenmue 2? Maybe he didn't try anything since Xiuying was always lurking nearby, protecting Ryo, so the opportunity never really presented itself.

I don't think they'll just randomly bump into each other, the world's not that small. There has to be an explanation for him showing up in such an obscure place and the only two I can think of is he was stalking Ryo all along or he was assigned to Choubu by the Chiyoumen.

I like the idea of Chai coming back with a weapon lol, he'll do anything to get that mirror. Wasn't he armed with some kind of weapon on the boat btw? Image

I don't know why anyone would think that Chai and other fighters wouldn't have gotten stronger since the time Ryo last met them. I mean, who knows what they've been through themselves. It's best to not assume they have been completely static. You kind of have to have characters evolve, the good and the bad. Otherwise you risk caricaturing your own work.

Chai could be weak as shit against Ryo or he could have gotten much better. We do not know.

I've been gone for a while, in what I have called both on the Kickstarter and elsewhere a "self-imposed exile," and I plan to return to that after this post. But I had to at least pop in - as I have on the Kickstarter in recent days - to comment about the latest reveals which, to me, are absolutely fantastic and nothing but promising.

These latest interviews, in the flurry or two or three we've gotten in recent days, coupled with the Deep Silver news and of course that awesome teaser footage, leave no doubt in my mind that the game is going to be as good as Yu and company can possibly deliver under the circumstances.

In particular, the things that make my heart leap with optimism:

  • The DETAILS in those new screenshots (much of which can also be seen in the teaser) tell me, without question, that this is going to be another Shenmue installment brimming with intimate, intricate, granular verisimilitude and nooks and crannies waiting to be seen and "felt"/"smelled" as Yu might put it. Not a single screenshot or camera angle in the new footage was devoid of tons of small details and world building touches that SCREAMED Shenmue to me. To say nothing of the familiar design of narrow streets lined with shops, homes, etc.
  • News of the Deep Silver deal was already promising, but the confirmation of something like the NPC count ballooning up towards 200 absolutely confirms that the infusion of funds is not insignificant. That, combined with Yu saying their help will facilitate the game going BEYOND the Kickstarter's scope, is a huge deal to me. I think many media outlets are underestimating the impact this will have, and has already had.
  • The models, while clearly WIP and lacking in some things such as facial animations - which Yu acknowledged - are definitely headed in a promising direction. And the early provisional martial arts animations ALREADY look quite good. It is only going to get better from here on out.
  • I would not at all be surprised or upset - not one bit - if the game sees another delay. I know there's a strong intimation that the existing delay was already to accommodate changes brought about by the Deep Silver deal, but I wouldn't be shocked to see another one. The longer this game "cooks," the better in my opinion and I would happily wait until 2019 to see a fully baked Shenmue experience. Now that one seems financially possible, all the better.

I'm not concerned about the fighting engine, or anything else we have yet to get clarification on. (And those things are actually part of why I suspect another delay is not out of the question.)

In short, I'm ignoring the haters, ignoring the rushing to judgment and pessimistic assumption brigade, and ignoring the erroneous, factually deficient gaming press who fails to note all of the above. Above all, I'm ignoring the hateful, trollish cesspool much of the Kickstarter comment section has become. No offense intended, but they do not represent the Shenmue fandom.

We waited 15 years for S3's announcement. We waited two more years for news of this caliber to finally be unleashed, and I'm not letting pessimism dent my joy and enthusiasm for the implications of what has been revealed.

Now I will again vanish back into the shadows. I just wanted to post my continuous, unyielding support for Shenmue 3 and its fandom.

Peace out.

I thought all the time Chai is dead. At the end of Shenmue Ryo kicked Chai in the water and it looks that he is dead (been drowned). I know there was a comic for Shenmue II where he cames back.

In an Interview Yu Suzuki mentioned he doesn't like Horror-Movies, but Chai is a part of Horror/Thriller.

The characters in Shenmue 3 looks awesome.
