The best that can come of this is Shenmue I & II remastered. Shenmue 3 on a budget is like Avengers Infinity War on a TV show budget.

Best left to your hopes and dreams.



Yeah, by Suzuki himself when it was announced.

One of the questions on the campaign’s FAQ asks “How confident are you in your ship date?” with the response being “A rigorous budget and schedule has been worked out with our production team and we believe our target of 2017 holiday season is within reach. That said, our goal is to make the best game possible (and one that the fans want!) so please understand the schedule may change as the project evolves.”




Put it this way, it's been 2 years and they can't show screenshots, they have had to photoshop how some combat might look.
"Targeting 2017"

Which in reality means "won't be 2017"

Another case of asshead verbiage to get gamers excited knowing full well it's completely BS.

Funny how there never seems to be any games ready to go early? It's either on time as expected, or delayed till next year. And the games on time, are mostly sequels or annual sports titles or CoD.

On the other hand, anyone at work (non-gaming) with a deadline, I'm pretty sure things are done on time, or you purposely build in buffer time. Not too often people miss the boat and can't finish it for another month.

So we'll get Shenmue 2 again through BC before we'll get Shenmue 3? What's up with that.

Lateness Awaits.

Lol, you remind me of Fergie. The Black Pea. Not the duchess.

"I'm so 3008. You so two-thousand and late!"
If one were to ask me which poster on UnionVGF had that boom, boom, pow, I think it's obvious now who the choice would be.

Of course, it was obvious before too.

As long as 'Boom, boom, pow' translates to 'The moral fibre and foundation of the forums' then yeah, I'm totally into that. ;)

Now, all eyes on me. Bring the action! Everytime you come around my London, London bridge. :p

Oh my god! Imagine if Fergie got to do the soundtrack to Shenmue! She has history with doing the soundtrack to really artistic productions.

She did the Sex and The City movie.

Right they never gave a release/so its not delayed.
Console/PC exclusives go in that console's section or so I was told.
The creator is saying it's delayed so the game was delayed. How much more direct can you get that..... the game was delayed? Not sure why your blue blood went into defense mode over something like this?

You are quoting this?
Do you have a official release date shown before the delay link?

Yep. Yu himself says the game is delayed in the video.... but I guess that's incorrect?

You said it wasn't delayed. The creator says it was. He's wrong and you're right?
Just because the developer says it's delayed doesn't mean it's delayed. What the hell does that guy know anyhow? Val says it's not delayed, and since there can be no error states in Valworld, clearly it means the release is on schedule and everyone else (including the developer) simply forgot to factor in the conversion to the Julian calendar some hundreds of years ago, project the difference backward to prehistoric times, and adjust their projections forward accordingly. It was always going to be released on February 30.

God I wish someone would have saved Gorbag's Shenmue inspired comic strip of Jackie Phan's trip to China from Teamxbox.

Still one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

Yes.

But when Jackie was sent to a certain shady location via his directions, the signs on the street corner translated to "Rape You" street when put into Google translate.

It was that kind of subtle humor that made it brilliant.

I still can't believe this is really happening. If higher res versions of Shenmue 1/2 came with it I'd be all over this. Such a unique series.

The environments look pretty nice.
The characters don't really bother me honestly. They look the part. But they could be better.
