Ryuji Iuchi tweets about Shenmue 3 music

Postby Sonoshee » Mon Jul 27, 2015 6:10 am

Ryuji Iuchi, composer on the previous Shenmue titles and Shenmue 3, tweeted that there are many unused tracks from Shenmue and Shenmue 2. He goes on to say that he will only compose new music when there are no matching, unused tracks left.

its makes perfect sense to use unused tracks that were originally designed for the newer areas, why compose more when its not needed? obviously he'll be needed for some new music, the rest we won't have heard "in game" so I have no problem with this.

Yeeeeeessssss!!! This is so awesome! This is fantastic news!

This will help ensure that S3 feels very Shenmue. A large part of the athmosphere has always been the music. For me, at least.

Also this will save Ys Net a lot of money as they don't have to compose a lot of new stuff. Maybe they could even just use the old recordings from the Sega archives, if they're high enough quality.

Damn it, the tracks in this video alone would make it one of the best video game scores ever and that's probably just a fraction of what Sega already have. I hope we'll see a lot of that in S3. Also, don't forget the "Lions something" track (forgot the exact name) from the Orchestra Soundtrack CD.

That tweet made my day! \:D/ :king: \:D/

could'n't agree more, great news indeed. the second track in particular on the link you provided gives me chills, can just imagine some Guilin training montage in my head with that music :)

Didnt he say in one of the previous kick starter videos they had made 700 to 800 tracks for shenmue 1 and 2? There could be 100s of left over songs to choose from, hopefully that means less work on new tracks and maybe a little re working of old ones.

I remember he tweeted earlier that the shenmue.link music wasn't his, this unused music from Shenmue IIX sounds a little like it:

I have listened to that new unused piece we got during the KS non stop. I absolutely adore it! No complaints here, use all the unused pieces you want!

The kickstarter theme and the music in the Ali video sounded amazing to me. If there's more unused tracks like that, im more than happy.

It's been the music that's got be the most excited from all of the media released. It will take time to get used to Shenmue on a new engine, but the music will still be within the same paramaters of the first two games which more than helps with that.

I'm pumped!

In the first two games I would walk into shops and buildings just to hear what type of music it used.

:mrgreen:
i look forward to nothing less than STELLAR!
thanks for sharing.
one warning was absolutely fair, was over zealous on conviction on a response to a subject.
the other one for 'spam' (aka: it was me posting that qualified) which is bogus due to personality clash. why don't who this concerns pull the other guy for destroying my subject, accusing it of SPAM?
oh, i get it now, not one of your cliques, and i watched you stand by and and let him trash it, and you did NOTHING but was complicit in your silence, and totally one sided and agree with it by inactions. (you have the temerity to pull me for spam, and yet, you let your lackey cliquey friends shit on my subjects? double-standards, real fuckin professional dude.)
at least the other staffer explained where i was wrong, and backed it up clearly in writ. :roll:
