I'm genuinely happy for you Peter. I think you deserve those moments of joy.

Could you have imagined only two years ago, all the great events you would live through and thanks to your passion for Shenmue? From what you say and what we read here and there about the backers dinner and this journey, Suzuki-San is an absolute true gentleman.

Looking forward to your blog!

Nice, how many attempts did it take? With only a 4% chance of a hit, that's an extremely elusive item!

Incredibly.. I got it on my first try. Peter and Adam not so much.. i'll leave them to comment on how many times cause I sure as hell lost count. In the end, its an extremely rare official item that im proud to have joining my collection. :)

Anything interesting in this? English translation coming soon?


He doesn't seem to talk about Shenmue III anyway.

Yup, I'm working on an English translation of the interview & will post it up once it's done.

The interview was filmed for a retro games (1982-1990) exhibition being held in Saitama over the next several months.

It covers some of Suzuki's life as a kid, getting a job at Sega, some of his arcade games (After Burner, Hang On, Out Run) and his thoughts about game creation - nothing about Shenmue but could still be of interest if you want to hear about his earlier days.

My translation of the interview is now up. I've made a thread for it here.

They've said that Shenmue III would start at Shenhua's house, right? What if that whole closing scene in Shenmue II was just a dream Ryo had? It'd be kind of a cheap cop out, but they could get around all of the dozens of questions and potential plot holes that way.

You don't tantalize people with a very specific cliffhanger for sixteen years and then resolve it by saying it didn't happen.

You just don't.

You won't believe how often I thought of this scenario. That Ryo reached Shenhua's house, went to bed there but everything that happened the next day well... didn't happen at all.

We really don't know what Yu Suzuki is going for nowadays with the mystical stuff but this would be a good way to write that whole flying sword thing out of the game.

How about they just don't write the flying sword out of the game? The mirrors and the Qing dynasty are obviously mystical if not outright magic.

Oh, Peter... Just saw this discussion about Shenmue HD.

Do you (also) mean keep #SaveShenmueHD campaign strong by "keep the hope alive"?

Rarely post here, usually a lurker but I saw this posted by a friend today. Trying not to think about Shenmue since III is still so far away but of course it's the first thing I thought of.

Saturday, December 3rd... I have the feeling this is a date we shouldn't (and won't) forget.
And not only because it's #SaveShenmueHD Tweetathon.

Perhaps, but didn't Biscay say not to really expect anything substantial until Magic Monaco 2017?

It could still be an announcement for something Shenmue related, like the HD ports (hopefully). With the game awards coming up too, I hope we get some good news for any of these games and end what's been a busy dev-year for Yu-san and co. on a high note :)

He said:

Things can change but we do not plan big update regarding pics or video before december.


Not that this means something is coming in December, but it seems to imply that they don't intend to go big before that point.
