As he wanted to stroll some old village with an ambience that would be suitable for a game, the guide took him to Dolceacqua. He liked the village very much and took a lot of pictures. Some day, we might stroll an old village like this in some video game. ;-)

Personally, these are the most inspirational news I have read lately. I automatically-associated them with the fact that Yu Suzuki did research back then for Shenmue and visit places regarding the game, like he (somehow) did now. It may be for something different to Shenmue, but it is good to know that Yu still has the spirit in him.

I've taken a minute or two (okay, maybe more) to compile everything that's been deduced about Yu's comments at MAGS, unravelling the rumors and misquotes that are circulating the 'Net:

It should hopefully prove a useful reference for directing fans who've been misled by various websites basing their reports solely on Sebastien's inaccurate tweets.

Thank you for the video. Now that I can hear the Q&A part clearly, I've fixed the inaudible part in my translation.


Can you please add time stamps to the duration of each Shenmue question.

Here's the translation of the Shenmue related Q&A:

21:24-TR: What is the most memorable game to you?
21:29-YS: Every game is memorable to me. But, Virtua Fighter is the most memorable as it was
the hardest game to make, having had to go through various hardships. Shenmue as well.

24:01-TR: Is there any regrets?
24:04-YS: Ah... I hate this (kind of question.) Not having been able to make Shenmue III yet, of course.

24:43-TR: Do you have any plan or project for the next-generation consoles?
24:52-YS: I don't have any concrete plans, but I'd like to do something for them.

25:23-TR: What do you think about using the service like crowd-funding, such as Kickstarter?
25:33-YS: There's such possibility, I think.
(Here, the translator took the liberty of connecting the answer of YS with Shenmue III, and the MC got excited.)
15:47-YS: That was a leading question, wasn't it?

26:06-TR: Perhaps you've already been asked this a lot, but everybody wants to know it. How is Shenmue III
going at the moment?
26:17-YS: I want to make it for sure, if a good partner is found.
26:30-YS: If the circumstances allow, I want to make it.
26:41-TR: Everybody wants to help you in anyway.
26:45-YS: Thank you. Merci beaucoup.

26:51-YS: May I speak a little here? French fans, especially, have been caring about Shenmue a lot and
always ask me about Shenmue III. I'm very glad about it.
27:18-YS: I sincerely want to make it, if circumstances allow.

36:50-TR: Now, there's a rumor that Shenmue I or II will be playable soon by downloading with PSN or Xbox...
37:06-YS: Where is it from?
37:10-TR: Huh? He (the questioner) says so.
37:15-YS: Well, I don't get it. Every year a rumor says Shenmue III is coming. I wonder who is making it.

42:24-TR: Do you have a plan to make Shenmue HD?
42:50-YS: The license of Shenmue I and II belongs to SEGA. Now that I've left SEGA, it's not my decision,
but SEGA's, to remake and sell them like that. It'd be possible for SEGA, I guess.
43:27-YS: I could make anything related to Shenmue series, though, by getting the license from SEGA,
if they say OK.

45:10-TR: Instead of a video game, will there be any chance that you depict the story of Shenmue 3
in other forms, like movie or novel?
45:24-YS: There will be such possibilities, I think. Even in such forms I want to do something related to Shenmue.

Thanks Kiyuu. It looks like the balls in Sega's court regarding the HD remakes.

Don't let us down for the 1998656585485458438438483th time SEGA!

Well I guess it goes back to maybe, instead of definitely not.

When is Shenmue master going to upload his interview with Yu Suzuki? I can't wait to see that interview.
"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."

Well, that is somewhat good news regarding a possible Shenmue 1/2 HD remastering. They have been leaked and teased so many times that I would honestly be surprised if they didn't come out.

After all, SEGA released a Jet Set Radio HD port, and that game sold less than Shenmue (I believe). Granted, this was likely a much easier game to port (due to the cel shaded graphics and not being nearly as expansive as Shenmue).

Thank you Kiyuu! :D I'm now going to put a video together with English subtitles. This will tide us over until Kenji's YS interview is up.

That is a MONUMENTAL work done there, kiyuu. I know the difficulty in making the timing for subs. What a work! Thank you really for all of this work, mate. And now in the hands of Ziming, it will be done nice and right.

Hello, new member here, long time lurker. Huge thanks to everyone involved for the info. Although this may not have been particularly good news, it is not bad news either. The worst case scenario would be for Yu to say, "sorry guys, I have given up - it's not going to happen." But the fact that he is still keen on seeing the series to completion, and waiting for the involvement of a financer/partner is enough to keep me hoping.

Welcome to the dojo.

So, maybe a new member section should be established after all. I think it'd be a good idea, to make it easier for new members to get aboard and introduce themselves.
