Bad Ending for taking too long?

Postby MechaWumpa » Sun Apr 22, 2018 9:01 pm

I haven't kept up with the updates so I'm not sure if this has been addressed, but does anybody think there will be a bad ending in S3 for taking too long just as there was in 1 & 2?

It's not been officially confirmed, but it's very likely that there will be.

Yes, I think Yu confirmed it at MAGIC 2016 when he said "There will also be time-limited events in Shenmue III. If you don't clear them within the time limit, a bad ending will be reached".

One of the benefits of working on the subtitle translations is that some of the little things stick in your mind. :)

If there is, I wonder what it will be like? Lan Di killing Ryo again? I can imagine it having something to do with the mirrors but this time more in depth.

I find the concept of "bad ending" interesting since it's almost a mandatory element in order to avoid an heavy paradox with players keeping Ryo away from the main quest for months or even years, making him and the characters within Shenmue's world forever young despite time passing.

Out of curiosity though, I would be very interested to see how far in time some would go before actually completing the game (of course using the waiting option in Shenmue 2 would be cheating). :mrgreen:
Those, who follow the path of a warrior, must be ready to die, in order to stand for one's convictions, live for one's convictions, die for one's convictions. That is how I lived my life.

Considering how you had until spring in Shenmue and until summer in Shenmue II the most logical answer would be that we have until fall in III.

Maybe we could have several bad endings (and time limits) this time ?
It would make sense to have a bad ending by part/place.

A bailu bad ending : Unable to track where is Shenhua's father ? Then Ryo staying there to make up for it ?
Last segment bad ending : unable to succeed in the mission there ? The protagonist can only flee ?

Or, maybe something that would make sense is that the bad ending is in two part :
A general bad ending and a side bad ending that depends on the part you are on.

This is pure speculation, but, who knows, it could work.

There are multiple bad endings in Shenmue II, so it's not impossible that we'll see something similar in III.
