Yu Suzuki Explains Shenmue 3's Stiff Facial Expressions
Rest easy if you thought the Shenmue III trailer was real bad. In a recent interview, Yu Suzuki talked about the "stiff" facial animations, saying that they're temporary. Phew.
Here is the exchange with Japanese website Game Watch Impress as Yu Suzuki watched the Shenmue III trailer.



Game Watch Impress: Is this trailer all in-game? Or is it pre-render?

Suzuki: It's a completely in-game trailer.

Game Watch Impress: As for the completion percentage, how much of it [the game] is done?

Suzuki: Because this is various scenes tied together, saying how much [is done] is difficult, and as for the characters, everything is still temp data.

Game Watch Impress: The characters facial expressions are still or, how should I put this, fixed, but this part will actually change?

Suzuki: Yes, we haven't yet put in the facial expressions. Until a month ago, we had put in the facial animations, but for the moment, they have been removed.

Game Watch Impress: The audio is wonderful, and is it a new recording?

Suzuki: No. This still uses audio from Shenmue II.

This game is never happening, because it's a PS4 game. Haven't you guys learned your lesson yet? Oh wait.. apparently delays are an industry thing now.

I kinda agree. 2018 is HIGHLY optimistic in my opinion.

Anyone who thought 2017 was an option were deluding themselves (and was rather Shady of Yu).

Now that Deep Silver has backed the project, Yu Suzuki is going to be able to build his full vision of Shenmue 3, this game isn't coming out in 2018....

Wait wait they're still getting a publisher AFTER the 6 million they scammed from everyone? "If we do not reach our funding goal (2 million), Shenmue 3 will not go forward."

What do they need the publishers money for after all that? I was suspicious of it before but I'm certain this is now gamings biggest boondoggle.

My guess advertising plus physical release in more areas.

Just shows Sony was all show the other year at E3 when this was announced and I'm guessing that's it for their involvement? Don't think it will be long till Xbox and Switch versions are confirmed.

The rendering is actually pretty nice- thanks to UE4. I'll hold judgement until I see some face animation. The music still gets me. Such a good score. Of course, I have to question anyone who uses Papyrus in their trailer.....

They said they included it to help get the kickstarter going it, clearly that is a "showy" kind of thing because the game isn't really even being made in a real way at that point.

Hmm... The rendering is fine, but the styling is still whack.

He looks like the Asian Seinfeld.

Should be worth it in the end. Another must have Japanese exclusive on the PS4. Shenmue 3 baby. One of the best gaming franchises of all time. Sucks it's not coming to other platforms, with Xbox essentially being Sega's platform after the fall of the Dreamcast. I guess when you're market leader like Sony, the hits keep coming.

If getting shenmue 3 meant no more games until 2020 I'd take it.
I've been waiting for this since shenmue 2 on Dreamcast and watching that floating sword cliffhanger. If I could chose one bff it would be Ryo. I think we'd make a great duo.

Look on the bright side. Once Shenmue 3 does eventually come out, it'll likely come out without game breaking bugs and other nonsense that games launch with today. No rush.

Time is on my side, yes it is

I hope they take all the time they need, I don't want a buggy rushed game released when so many of us have been waiting for so long to see what happens next. I want to be able to enjoy the experience from start to finish, now if only Sega would work on the visuals a bit more in the remastered original games they are putting out :)

Looks good, I wish Sega had done more with the re-release of the older games.
