Update #85: Survey Info #2: $7M stretch goal reached!

Postby FlagshipFighter » Mon Jul 23, 2018 3:13 am

Hello Backers!

With the combined Kickstarter and Slacker Backer campaigns, we have reached the $7M stretch goal! Having reached this goal, the Battle System Expanded: AI Battling will be included! Thank you so much for your support!!  

Battle System Expanded: AI Battling   

This control system lets you automatically unleash the perfect technique in response to the opponent's positioning and distance. R&D for this system is based on Yu Suzuki's concept for players who are not used to fighting games or for those who want a full immersion battle experience. This battle system is highly compatible with, and will be an extension to the current battle system.

The Slacker Backer and Fangamer upgrade & add-on campaigns are still underway, so don't miss out!        

And please make sure to get your survey in! Thank you!!

"Shenmue II reveals the true scope that the series encompasses and how this story is still just beginning. If it continues to be composed of ambitious, engrossing and entertaining titles like Shenmue II, Yu Suzuki's legacy may be best remembered for the Shenmue series."

Hurrah! Hurrah!

We reached 7 Mill !!!!! How awesome is that guys!?

In other news, I'm really happy to see the clarification that the physical disc of the game will have "all" content on the disc and it's not just a download key. Really happy to hear that.

Just to be nitpicky, I think the green on the health UI is too bright. Should look more glassy and dark.

But the thing I am most excited about!?

Seeing normal fucking NPCs. They look good! Great art style.

Makes me very optimistic for the visuals of the more important characters if random thugs can look great.

Also, I am glad there is more open spaces to fight. I admit I was a bit worried when Yu Suzuki was describing fighting in more enclosed spaces.

I do however have one worry, and it is that this pic looks very Yakuza-like. I fear that will give the wrong impression and newcomers will be disappointed that Shenmue is not Yakuza.

BTW, is there a higher rez pic?

Anyway, needless to say, I am beyond hyped. Now I wanna see Ten fighting with weapons. XD (then it really would be more like Yakuza lol)

Those visuals look on par with AAA productions. That Deep Silver deal is the best thing to happen to Shenmue III. Now people that bitched about the visuals can eat crow.

Good update, you can tell these updates are getting far more professional than those in the past. That screenshot looks ace too.

Nice update! 7 millions in a blink of an eye!

This is the first time we have a look at fighting gameplay!
Although the image has an sleeping dog looks (I think due to the lighting and the look of the place) it looks really good, on par with AAA title in my opinion, highly detailed background and npcs.

We can see what it seems Shenhua image in the life gauge of Ryo and this place seems the same where they show a picture of MR. Muscles.

When the fuck are they going to show a new gameplay trailer??!! I can't wait to see it!

How on earth will they fit all that data on the disc!? I'm excited that they're going to do it, but it seems impossible for a DVD! Maybe they'll put it on a Blu-ray disc.

The 100GB thing is a placeholder. There is no way the size is going to hit that number. This list of file sizes of recently released games should serve as a decent guideline.
