Wikipedia was wrong on that then, I looked real fast prier to asking my Shenmue 2 questions, and it claimed he was the Lead Tester for Shenmue 2 as well.

Ah ok, so the stairs glitch, might have still been on purpose, but if it was, it was used only be the Japanese team then, because he doesn't remember it.

Wait, is he implying that Sega "ingeneral" most likely didn't have talks with Coke at all? I heard the Japanese copyright laws were much looser then the US, but I didn't think it was to that extent.

Well in any case, I always found it to be utterly retarded to pay companies for having their products in games, and movies(seriously companies should be paying the game/movie makers for using their products, not the other way around), but that's US copyright laws for you.

I hope I can reproduce the Nozomi call bug some day, I've heard rumors about such a bug being in the actual US retail game for years now, but I personally haven't run into it.

It's awesome to hear his story about meeting Yu fo the first time :)

Great interview, I laughed out loud at the image of a bunch of testers shouting "Hey mister, wanna wrestle?!", or just going "That day..." and walking away :rotflmao:

The mystery of the Japanese dub/English sub version deepens...

Why do I get a feeling that the search for that, is going to end up getting way out of control :)

I'm calling it now, in a few years time, It's going to turn into a massive treasure that is going to engulf the entire industry/gaming scene, as well as involve millions of other people that were never even interested in games before lol. Seriously everyone is going to be looking for it.
