Very happy with the update and for the 'new' incorporation to the team! With every upddate I can feel that it'll be a great game with the true Shenmue essence!

Could anyone translate the japanese subtitles of this picture?

I must say it's nice and helpful of them to leave hints of Japanese text in each video so that we can analyze them to death.

Anyway, the gist of the subtitle is:

"Occasionally, there are even times when the mountains along the Li River bring misfortune..."

Good man Switch!

So from the image we can see that time will be visible on screen as always, but no confirmation that it's a watch (can be questioned with the whole Timex issue). Also that it's been relocated to the bottom left of the screen. Must be going for 4 corners across 4 games if they get to make Shenmue 4.

I also like the new smaller, more sleek action button on the right, where they have always been. I can't see any other buttons so it could be back to basics like Shenmue 1, with just the action button and perhaps a notebook icon when you receive an entry. I must admit, I prefer that because the marker button was just obselete, and the other buttons.... We always knew what they did anyways.

I absolutely love this update. The more original staff the better, plus the dedication and love you hear really is reassuring. This game is going to be as great as we always thought it would be. Zero doubts.

"Ryo... That word on your watch - beginning with T... That has another meaning in this village."

"Another meaning... Is that so?"

"Yes... In their ancient traditions, that word is rather offensive."

"I see... I'd better scratch it off."

I love the atmospheric effects on the plant and rag in the background! Nothing static.

I inverted the colors in photoshop to hopefully add some clarity for anyone who can translate this.

Edit* Just saw Switch got the translation already! Damn bud that was fast nice job!

I have a feeling these videos were shot a while ago. Still, great update, very happy to see more veterans come on board, and looks like I'll be able to play it on PC with my wired 360 controller no problem :)


Looks like YSnet prefer rather to play Shenmue II on the black Xbox 360's emulator than the Dreamcast which are always unplugged.

As for the subtitle: "Occasionally, there are even times when the mountains along the Li River bring misfortune..."

Could Shenhua be talking about the very same mountains found on the picture in her house???

Some connection there? If so, then it's theory time.

I'm heading out for dinner but I wish I could stay in and post. There's nothing overly significant about this update but for some reason it's gotten me seriously hyped!

But I have to ask, when did Shenhua get fucking ear rings? She's not trying to seduce Ryo! What next? Fishnets and eyelash extensions?

Despite it not feeling significant, it is great to see another veteran team member come back.
Yeah the ear rings seem to be a new touch. But then again, we were at her house so maybe she just wasnt wearing them for the long trip she was on when Ryo met with her? Then put them on after to look nice? guess we gotta wait and see!

Enjoy yo food!

Why should this hide a particular purpose? Shenhua is expected to change clothes very regularly in Shenmue III and Bailu's women have surely their own local traditions.

I'm more intrigued by the use of "loading screens" for their question presentation lol.

Perhaps the earrings only make their appearance when things are going "well" in terms of the rapport system?

Perhaps.

Or maybe it's just a design feature they wanted in the original games but couldn't for technical reasons?

Either way, it's still an old model. It could be a mistake like the wrong sleeve colouring or length of the dress. I have to wonder, why were those mistakes on Shenhua's E3 2015 model in the first place?


Anyway, Switch signal is up again:

Any chance of figuring out what the stuff on the right means?
