Interview with Shenmue 2 Designer: Norikazu Hirai

SEGA recently published an interview with one of the designers who worked on Shenmue II, Norikazu Hirai. I've translated the part where he talks about his Shenmue work. It turns out that he is the person who was responsible for designing the Sword of Seven Stars. He also reveals that Yu Suzuki's ori...

Re: Shenmue 3 Ryo Hazuki Leaks

Re: Shenmue Undub [Japanese Speech Mod] [CD-R 80/99/GDI]

However I think I remember when kogami and smith were working on each of their version that it was impossible to fit everything on cd-80 and he had to cut a sequence or some such, I don't exactly recall. Yes, my understanding is that kogami released an 80-minute version but had to withdraw it due t...

It was a weekday, but they were taken before 10 am so most of the shops hadn't opened yet (just like in Shenmue :)).

A Visit to Yokosuka After Snow: Photo Gallery

Last week it snowed in Yokosuka! I jumped on a train to capture photos of as many "after the snow" Shenmue locations as I could. Everything looked remarkably like how it's depicted in the game. https://i.imgur.com/U5zDzpp.jpg https://i.imgur.com/OdhQzVh.jpg https://i.imgur.com/3GP9kmT.jpg ...

Re: Shenmue Undub [Japanese Speech Mod] [CD-R 80/99/GDI]

Two questions for you; you mention that the game should be able to fit on 80min CDRs with full audio, does this full audio mean there will be no degradation in audio quality or must there be come loss in compression, and also will there need to be any compressing of textures in getting this to 80mi...

Re: Shenmue Sacred Spot Guide Map (PhantomRiverStone.com)

I was recently in Yokosuka, and found Dobuita, but couldn't find the Information Centers that had these maps. Thanks for uploading what the actual guide looks like. Hm, yeah they are not particularly obvious to find. I've seen a few people who had trouble locating the maps. I'll look at putting up ...

Re: Shenmue Undub [Japanese Speech Mod] [CD-R 80/99/GDI]

There is a glimmer of hope with respect to this: as part of the project work is being done on attempting to fit the revised Undub onto standard CD-Rs, while maintaining the original audio quality. I definitely don't wanna put any pressure on you guys, but is there an estimated time of delivery for ...
