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.
