Nice to have Features for HD Release

Postby myshtuff » Sat Apr 14, 2018 8:16 am

In addition to the features that will be in the HD release, here is what I would love to see if they have time to implement.

1. All extras from the xbox version of Shenmue 2 added. i.e. Comics from the missing boat chapter and photo filters.
2. A main screen menu where you can boot into all of Yu's arcade games, lucky hit, the duck race, and the 70 person battle.
3. Of course transferring saves between all 3 games. :)
4. What's Shenmue demo.
5. Archive/museum of old promo videos and artowrk.

What else would people like to see as nice to have features?

Honestly, they could release this game on the Atari 2600 and I would play it so I'll take anything.

They would never do this but would be amazing.

-Online battle mode where you get to pick any fighter character in the game and fight, kinda like the battle mode in Shenmue 2 but against people online to test your skills.

I know it's extremely unlikely, but I would love to have HDR support.

To apprecciate all those Yokosuka sunsets and Hong Kong neons even more...

I think it would be a fun mini game to include the Shenmue Goodies VMU game in full to at least see what it was all about.

Well, these wishlists have been made a whole bunch of times before but now things are a bit different of course. 8)

Passport is definaltey the biggest point for me, see the topic I made for that. Thus far they have promised us some nice extra features that many had on their lists but what they still have to announce is save anywhere and time skip for Shenmue. I know it wasn't the intention of Yu to have those in the first game but since they finally got up and work on the games this has to be added for the newcomers.

I'd like to see some more modern, cleaner subtitles but only as an added option to the original style.

On a technical side I think they can easily get rid of the slowdowns and I hope they also remove the NPC fade in entirely. Loading times should be shortened to a minimum aswell. I think they can also ditch the question if you want to save where a disc change originally occured. The structure of the Xbox version was too much of a direct port with the disc folders on the DVD and they can easily get rid of it.

Dual-language is the absolute most important improvement by miles and I'm very glad they've included it.

Also -

- Skip time/save anywhere in Shenmue 1
- Removing fade-in for NPCs
- Uncompressed and less scratchy audio (assuming SEGA still has all the source material)
- Some textures need to be redone (mainly trees and some of the scenery in Guilin)

Can I get the option to play in Japanese audio for S1, but still have Goro's english voice? I'd really like that.

Those shouldn't be available from the start, though but would be nice as an unlockable if you reached a certain score in the game.

What I would like to see is all main characters have their standard models swapped out with their passport models. These models exist after all, look great from up close, blend in nicely even standing beside lower res models and there really is no reason not to use them.

A wait option is a must for Shenmue 1. I can see that entire charlie segment on disk 1 being an issue for impatient people.

Im actually torn on this. If it wasn't for all that extra time in between missions I wouldn't have explored around and taken in the atmosphere of the game. I guess an option wouldn't hurt, but I don't know if I'd use it honestly.

I have a fairly modest wishlist. Texture filtering, anti-aliasing, and shadowing for buildings. I'll even take shadowing in Shenmue II only if it comes to it.

The main one has to be the ability to save anywhere in Shenmue 1 like you could in Shenmue 2 (and possibly the skip time functionality as well).

When they put some actual work into the engine they could also omit some more performance saving techniques the originals had to use. Like the low poly model during the 70 Person Free Battle and the lack of a sky in that area.
Also constantly swapping hand models from gameplay to cutscene in various ways. And speaking of sky, the textures for that in Shenmue are definately the number 1 candidate for some improvement.

I would also welcome (the option to change to) the Passport model as the main model for Ryo during the entire game. Well, with adaptions of no shoes and no jacket in Shenmue I of course.
