Re: Shenmue III Update #67: Developer Room Update 3

I've put up a post on Phantom River Stone about the update. Nothing unusual about the hand-written notes, but here are translations for the record: http://i.imgur.com/UQCSPsem.jpg And any thoughts on whether this is merely a bird... or something more "mythological"? http://i.imgur.com/GXbb...

Re: Shenmue The Movie Dub Differences

Wow, a very extensive comparison. Some of the changes are so minor it hardly seems as if it would have been worth the trouble making them! As far as I know the Japanese dub has only been added for the DVD release and it might actually be a full redub. Although I believe the movie was screened in Eng...

Re: Shoes On... Shoes Off | Shenmue Realism

Let's Get Sweaty wrote: Does China have the same tradition as Japan? If not, then Ryo probably saw other people walking around in their outdoor shoes and realized he didn't need to take his off.

Perhaps... or he assumes it's OK but the people he stays with are too polite to tell him otherwise! :)

Shoes On... Shoes Off | Shenmue Realism

The latest post on the Phantom River Stone blog looks at the custom of removing footwear inside the house in Japan (and other Asian countries) and how this is depicted in the first two Shenmue games... http://i.imgur.com/8P3vJcZl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/WQ4pFF3l.jpg ...as well as some interesting cas...

Re: Doing something nice for Shenmue III team

This is a nice idea. One thing to keep in mind If planning perishable items like flowers, the Ebisu address for YS Net that is known publicly is only a correspondence address in a different location to the studio so Yu might not be checking there often.

Re: Romanization of Locations and Names

Interesting topic! I don't have an answer to your query, but it reminded me of this other recent post about the use of Japanese characters on sign-boards in the game, as well as Japanese pronunciation for some of the Shenmue 3 placenames: http://www.shenmuedojo.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=4952...

Re: Winter Heating in Japan | Shenmue Realism

The kettle of water sitting on the heater plays a dual role - it can be used for making tea but also was a way to humidify the air. I think the heaters (and kotatsu etc) are visible throughout the game, which is probably realistic given the weather would remain cold over the period the first game is...

Re: Shenmue 3 & E3 2017

The original office was outgrown, and the second was full in a month. Now he does say they moved again to Gotanda, but it's a bit confusing. With that package RyoHD got, coming from Ebisu, that means they are still renting that location, plus the main studio in Gotanda. Yes, the Ebisu address on th...

"Dobuita": Meaning & Origin

Dobuita in Shenmue was based closely its real-life Yokosuka counterpart, although the real location is known as "Dobuita Street" (Dobuita Doori in Japanese) rather than just Dobuita. As in the game, it is located next to a US Navy base and runs around 500m in length. So does the name "...

Re: Shenmue 3 confirmed not coming out this year.

JUST IN CASE anyone may be genuinely confused... #-o
This is a "creative" re-translation of Kickstarter Update #66.

Accuracy level: zero percent.

Re: Kickstarter Update #66 - Yu-san on story-building

I don't think it was readily apparent from the English subtitles, but in the interview Yu was talking about the same plot structure that he talked about at the GDC talk in 2014: http://i.imgur.com/5JO3Ptw.jpg I've just put up a post on my blog about it here: http://www.phantomriverstone.com/2017/05/...
