"5% of what he knows" says Adam Koralik?

Postby Valascaziel » Sun Apr 15, 2018 10:13 am

Speculation time.

What could be so inherently secretive about these remasters that he can only share 5%? What could he possibly know about that he'd be forbidden from sharing it to folks?

Personally, I think it's the save transfer feature, which may not be something that they can share because it would give away an Xbox One version of III is coming.

We can pretty much assume it's exclusivity is timed like Hellblade at this juncture, I think.

I guess PS4 Pro and Xbox One X support would be something kept under wraps..

Maybe Sega is banking on sales of this to decide whether to fold in YsNet for a Shenmue IV?

I'm just struggling to find things hed know but is NDA'd about .

Now that is an interesting take. What was shown was only a preliminary thing to generate excitement? A stretch, but a fun one.

I don't think they would have shared any information about exclusivity or Sega's potential future involvement in the series with Youtubers. I would expect the mystery information to be more about things like adding the requested time-skip feature to S1, and reducing or altogether removing loading times between areas.

They are hiding an added warewolf mode. Ryo turns into the beast and you can take out the citizens during the full moon.

They've added the bicycle back into Shenmue 1.

I was pretty sure to read the time-skip feature somewhere on the steam page. Has the line been deleted?

They brought in the mysterious feature that couldn't make it into Shenmue where Ryo could "lift up a house and throw it around" and for II we'll finally get "Reo Hezuky's gun".

You can change Ryos character model into Sonic and Kiryu Kazuma.

I dont think that Shenmue 3 will eventually be available on Xbox One.
I might be wrong but i think all of the games from the publisher Deep Silver
are getting released on the same date on every platform. Which means if the Xbox,
Switch or whatever version is not announced by now, then its probably not coming.

I think there is not even one single game in the list of published games by Deep Silver
that was a timed exclusive one. And would it make sense to bring a Shenmue 3 Xbox version later?
That doesnt sound like a good idea to me.

Also it was mentioned in a gamescom interview that its only on PS4 (and Pc)
because Sony helped the team at E3.
The Team behind Shenmue 1 & 2 HD has nothing to do with the team behind Shenmue 3.

The 11 year old me was bitterly disappointed I couldn't use the toilet in Shenmue. The first thing I did when I got the game on Christmas day in the year 2000 was head for the bathroom and attempt to use it. The next thing I did was head for the phone and attempt to ring the police to report my father's murder. Ryo wouldn't let me :(

I don't think it'll be a remake, the ammount of assets the game has (both!!) it's just too much for a 30dls remake I think.

There may be a save transfer feature, online passportlike stuff, gallery of extras (photos, the original berkeley video, cg art, that kinda stuff), a old/new mode switch (maybe realtime?), highres models of the main characters (the passport stuff), no popping of npcs, no loading between scenes (just the original fadescreen for like 2 seconds, since the scenes are not really "connected"), better shadows/lighting.

I'd love to see the game with director's commentary, that would be just amazing, but I guess it'll probably the stuff we already know/ a rehash of the GDC postmortem, but it's very unlikely since YS is working on SIII.

Hell, maybe they got the bicicle working ?

Anyway, all that stuff I just said are extras, I'm happy with being able to play the game again without much hazzle.

Only thing I seem to be getting in this thread is humorous facetiousness and prevailing aura that nobody likes this guy.
