KS Update #21: To the Sea and the Continent Beyond

Postby Technophilz » Thu Jul 02, 2015 6:58 am

Hello Everyone!

The power of Shenmue’s music was undoubtedly one of the big reasons that made the Shenmue series such a memorable experience. One of men responsible for this great achievement, is Ryuji Iuchi.

The composer of "Shenhua's Theme," Iuchi-san's songs have pulled at our heart strings and actually put us there, in the world of Shenmue. And now he is back for Shenmue 3 to help take us into that world once again.

Let’s give a big standing ovation for Ryuji Iuchi:

Thank you for all of the memories, Iuchi-san! We look forward to all of the new songs, and the memories we will make with them in Shenmue 3.

To get a further listen of Ryuji Iuchi’s body of work, please visit his website at http://www.ryujiiuchi.com While most of the site is in Japanese, samples of his music are here at this link, so please have a listen!

#SaveShenmue Tweetathon on Twitter

Don’t forget that the 3rd of the month is the #SaveShenmue Tweetathon, so please send a Tweet with the hashtag #SaveShenmue to show your support for Shenmue 3.

You can still get your questions to Yu Suzuki by Tweeting to him using the hashtag #YouaskYu

They are no doubt doing a lot of updates since a week ago.

"Magic Weather Warning: There will be a storm of updates on the way, so bring your umbrella with you tomorrow!"


The biggest take away

Weeeeee hope so, we hope so
Hey guys,
I am currently looking for an artist for an upcoming project. it's a decently long product with a lot of art assets. I am looking for a bit of a unique style. You will of course be paid and I am hoping the style can be similar to anime or american comics such as Greg Capullo or Jim Lee.

It would help if you are good in gothic, blood, facial expressions and action posses as well as the idea of having some joke items thrown in as well

Please contact me at - [email protected] if interested.

Definitely, the past 14 years always had me coming back to the soundtracks at some point which would always make me reminisce about the game while wishing so badly a third one would be made.

Ryuji Iuchi, for some reason saying it out loud makes me laugh (the reason being I'm an idiot).

Too short of an interview :(

It really makes you want to donate to see all these guys and wanting to build the game. Really hope the KS can take off and fully fund this game.

I have listened to the music quite a bit in the last 14 years, honestly believe it's some of best for a game.

If they had this guy making a special track for fans, would they be able to sell that for 10,000 lol

I'd say so, so amazing.

800 pieces really ? Don't forget Shenmue music is a collective work. But Iuchi was really one of the most important as he is the original author of Shenhua Sedge Flower and Earth & Sea. I'm very glad of his comeback.

Well I guess they made these interviews for all the crew members they got on board and listed on the Kickstarter page. That's why they can pump these out like they do. It's nice to get these as freqent updates.

There aren't many more left. I'm waiting for the one with Awesome Japan the most now. :lol:

Just to say it again, being aware of the risk of making the mods get mad at me: :D Video Gamer Radio is holding a Shenmue Marathon today, to celebrate the announcement of S3. So Shenmue Music all day long! =D>

These updates are definitely getting better. Shame it took 2 weeks for them to get the message, but I'm definitely enjoying the improvement.

I hope a new tomato convenience store theme gets created. I hope it's the main music of the start screen.
