Yu Suzuki Says Shenmue 3 Will Get Us 40 Percent Through Ryo's Story

There's still a lot more Shenmue where that came from.

The anticipated third game in the Shenmue series is finally coming this November, after another delay. But fans hoping for a conclusion to Ryo's quest for vengeance will be left hanging, as longtime series director, writer, and producer Yu Suzuki says there's more to tell.

In an interview yesterday with Suzuki, I asked him if Shenmue 3 will be a conclusion to the story. In response, Suzuki took out his water bottle and placed it on the table between us and pointed to about the halfway point.

"Whole story of this bottle, about here," Suzuki said via translator. I asked if he meant halfway. "40 percent," Suzuki responded.

Suzuki says he feels pretty confident about making the November deadline the team has set for themselves. Though development was tough, Shenmue 3 has come a long ways from where it was to start.

"To be honest, at the very beginning of the project, we thought that we may not be able to do a full Shenmue," says Suzuki. "But now I can say I'm confident it's a full Shenmue. This is Shenmue."

Suzuki also commented on the post-launch content in the works, saying it will be "something quest-based, and something action-based." Shenmue 3 is coming to PlayStation 4 and PC via the Epic Games Store on November 19, 2019.

Wasn't it supposed to be like a 7 parter originally?

Shenmue 4, 5,6,7 and 8 can just come out as DLC for $50 each, will be paid for by loot box toy capsules, actual online gambling in mini games, and fully ad supported including product placement and will be a monthly subscription MMO.

After taking money from Sony, Kickstarter, A publisher, and now epic, if it doesn't have all of those things, We'll never see another game.

Only 17 days to release. It seems like it is really going to happen this time! It has been 18 years since the release of Shenmue II. The first game I ever imported. Even though it only had english subtitles with japenese voices I still loved it. I hadn't played Shenmue 1 or 2 since the early 2000s. I beat them each once. Then when the PC release came out I played through Shenmue 1 again and am currently still playing Shenmue II. I have been playing it on and off for quite awhile now. With it being so close to the release of Shenmue 3 I'm going to try and finish Shenmue 2 right before the release of Shenmue 3.

It is going to be great!

There's not a lot of hype for it at the moment. Probably due to Death Stranding and the other new games that have come out.

That’s not it. ;)
We’ve waited 18 god damn years to get the ending.
Then we all saw that Shenmue 3 Will Get Us 40 Percent Through Ryo's Story.... YOU FUCKING WHAT MATE?!?!?

At that very instant I, and probably lots of other people lost interest.
And then they went epic exclusive, which PISSED off the last of the people excited for it for some reason...


FINALLY I CAN PLAY SHMOO 2 knowing the story has somewhere to go!

but now I can’t play 3 because it’ll be another 20 god damn years till we see what happens next?? GET. FUCKED!!! I’ll be fucking dead by then...

I’ll be less angry if I get a forklift as my capsule toy, if I don’t fuck shmoo3!!

Finally won the first prize boombox after 6 playthroughs... won on day 5 at work... FUCK YOU SHENMUE!!!!
I got to see my tape player ONCE, didn’t even get to use it.

Shenmue has a lot of fuck you moments going back to it. Biggest fuck you has to be fights... learn and perfect every single move... only way to beat the 70 man fight and fucking chai is spamming the shit out of kick... FUCK YOU SHENMUE!!!

At least now I can finally play more than 10 minutes of 2.

One felt so short going back to it
because I skipped so much shit knowing what to do and where to go... I’m guessing 2 is going to feel massive being new to me

so it wasn't just my email fucking up, that's good :rofl:
What pissed me off is that none of the million emails were confirming my game had been shipped out.

I looked on the fan gamer site, and info was passed to the distributor for shipment yesterday.

so I do hope when I get the game, I get all my goodies at the same time.

Also have to confirm that my kickstarter edition is different from the day one edition, otherwise I may have to get that too.

We visited Yu Suzuki's studio in Japan to talk to him about the origins of Shenmue, the gameplay of Shemue 3, and why everyone loves Ryo.

I dunno if I'd say love him. He's as interesting as a piece of wood.
