Re: Sega of Japan Tweets New Shenmue T-shirt

Thanks for posting my pictures Ziming. Indeed, tshirt size seems to match the french one. Wearing M shirts in France and this is a M size one. As said to Ziming, no idea about other countries but i guess you can check out with cm measurements.

Re: Recent Gaming Purchases

Got my hands on a rare Shenmue II Demo Disc brand new sealed and a never seen before cover sample. On top of that, got the chance to meet Takenobu Mitsuyoshi few days ago. We have talked about many things and of course Shenmue.

List :

- Bag
- Cards
- Both artbooks (well, one seems more like a pamphlet, the blue one) since it has like no pages... You open it and that's it. However, the other one is heavy and is really like a artbook, awesome stuff
- Shenhua figure
- Strap
- TGS Entry ticket
- TGS Goods selling list (just check the prices guys, thats fucking crazy), the black pen was on sell for 200 yen, rofl... just like 2 euros ? Now its just freaking expensive. Let's not talk about the other one which is the rarest one and was on sell for 2000 yen.

Mugs for 800 yen, posters for 1500 yen... thats just crazy. But i have to say it, the rarest Shenmue item seems to be the original painting for Shenhua, signed, which went for 50 000 yen in 1999. Yet to be seen again, i cant even imagine its price nowadays.
- Shenmue Tshirt
- What's Shenmue
- Main Theme CD
- Mini Notepad Shenmue
- Tattoos

Guess i do have now a nice TGS 1999 set, but i will have to complete it by finding 3 mouse pads (have Ryo's one), 3 posters (have Niao Sun's one) and 2 phone cards (have Ren and Shenhua's one).

Still a long way to go, since there's still the Shenmue watch and some other stuff like all mugs etc. But i will try to complete it within the next 5 years if i can.

So yeah, pretty much, my goal is to get what's left as soon as possible.

If you are selling stuff (you can be a fan but still want to sell something you know :D) or have doubles, let me know ! Thanks !

Still looking for the last 3 posters i need (quite amusing thinking i have the niao sun one while i am missing her mug lol).

But i am already on a deal for the last 3 posters, but might cost an arm...

If anyone know where i can find the niao sun mug or someone selling it, hit me up !

Re: Recent Gaming Purchases

After 9 years (yeah, something like that), i finally got my hands on a rare item : Shenmue Pack NTSC-J Standard HKT-3000.

http://s11.postimg.org/ymkpkvkmb/photo_1.jpg

http://s11.postimg.org/t9vv6qwpv/photo_2.jpg

The system itself has nothing special, its a regular Dreamcast except that the box is different (as you can see, it's Shenmue !)

I've seen this only a few times over 9 years, most likely less than 10 times and its one of the most difficult item to find, probably even more difficult than the timex watch.

I am looking forward getting the latest items in order to complete my collection, like one mug, 3 posters, 3 clear files etc. But finding this one was... i have no words to describe how i feel. I'm relieved. I still cant believe it almost took me a decade to find this.

Now, i will probably sleep better knowing i wont have to hunt for it everyday, anymore !

If you ever wish to sell your Shenmue items (money purpose mostly) or simply to help me out completing my collection, feel free to contact me. I am looking for :

Niao Sun's Mug
Ren, Shenhua, Ryo B2 size posters (from Tokyo Game Show 98)
Shenhua, Ryo, Niao Sun's clearfile
Ren and Niao Sun's mousepad
Thats top priority items. I still don't have the xbox version but let's face it, i cant find like 10 copies everyday so no point in hunting it right now.

Oh and ofc, if you dont wish to sell but know someone willing to, feel free to contact your friends !

Re: Shenmue 3 rumor with david deville

Hi guys.

I am the person who has done the interview.

Just one thing :

https://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?depth=1&hl=fr&ie=UTF8&nv=1&prev=_t&rurl=translate.google.fr&sl=es&tl=en&u=http://www.gameit.es/david-deville-asegura-que-yu-suzuki-le-ha-mostrado-material-de-shenmue-3-y-que-habra-noticias-pronto-rumor/&usg=ALkJrhjQjRqTLcDSMpLORbl9O_4CWHehDA

I said that Yu Suzuki showed me artworks of characters that you will meet while playing shenmue III but never said that it would be released anytime soon or that its even planned at all. Title is misleading and quite wrong. If someone know the admin, it would be nice to change it.

I am a bit busy right now but please wait, i will definetly get back to you.

Best regards,

David

Re: david deville Interview with Yu suzuki

I will try to make it clear.

I live in Japan but my wife and i decided to go back to France on october 1st. We are doing all the cleaning, i also had many other things to do and i am still busy.

At first, i wanted to meet up and set up an interview with Suzuki san and just ask some questions. Nothing special really. It just turned to something unexpected and he indeed showed me the last 2 boss (north and west one), the real face of Baihu so i know who is behind the mask and at the end of the interview, he showed me Tentei 天帝.

I also got to learn some things related to the story which i have promised to not reveal so i wont unless he sends me another mail saying i am allowed to.

As for why he told me all of this, he said : 大サービス, which literally means huge service, or giving me something precious. For the 2 remaining boss, he said : これは誰も見せてない。 which you could translate to : i have never shared this before or no one ever saw this. I highly doubt he lied to me, i am sure that what i have seen is 100% legit.

So yeah you can imagine that i was not allowed to take pictures or record any video. My audio files are on my comp and the interview will be in a text form. I was hoping to record everything as a video with my camera but that was impossible since shenmue 3 contents (not in game stuff, just old artworks) were shared.

I am unknown so i can understand people having doubts but i will make you you believe what i am writing. I will try to post something before going to bed.

Re: david deville Interview with Yu suzuki

Hi guys.

I am actually working on it, i have some free time. It's in french right now and i am about half way through it.

Just to make things clear :

- Do not expect a Shenmue III release date

I suppose it'd be useless to detail everything right now, you will be able to read it soon enough, once i am done writing everything on my free time. I will do a double check on what i am able to share, so you might get more than expected, or less, but trust me, you will get something.

Be back later !

Re: david deville Interview with Yu suzuki

Hi guys, i have some news, a good one and a bad one.

Before arranging the interview, i contacted a french magazine to see if they could let me write it down and publish it. I did not get any news until today. I got a phone call and they said that if i wanted to get it published, i'd have to share it as a temporary exclusivity. I've asked them how long and they said atleast one month. Since the magazine will be available on october, i'd have to wait until november to post something on the net.

Now i am a bit lost on what to do. As a magazine, Shenmue could get more views and might attract more than just a plain copy paste on internet (which would still happen on november anyway), so that wouldn't change anything.

If i do accept, would it be okay or would you be all angry ? I know that i was supposed to share it with you soon, but if i can get another chance to publish it somewhere else, that'd be great. And just to make it clear, even if they publish it, i am not paid, so there is no money involved.

Re: david deville Interview with Yu suzuki

Well since you are probably going to wait until november, i will just tell you this right now.

Shenmue III is not in production (unless its another secret, but i doubt it). But Yu Suzuki wants to make it, trust me. If you wonder why i am so sure, there is a reason. When i was talking with him, as you know, he showed me private artworks (can't thanks him enough) and while doing so, i've asked him why he did not show this to the public until today (i consider myself a random dude, i am not a pro journalist, even tho i'd love to work for the game industry) and here is what he told me :

"I am not showing this because it could be used to promote Shenmue III"

I do not know how its gonna sound to your ears but to mine, Yu Suzuki is still keeping everything because he still has the will to create it. Of course, in the mean time, he'd like to work on other projects and games, but he definetly hasn't given up on Shenmue, trust me.

I was not supposed to write this down right now, but since i am probably going to make you wait longer, take it as a gift. Do not give up guys, Yu Suzuki wants to make it, let's keep going and provide support.

Re: david deville Interview with Yu suzuki

I've talked to him about the reason behind not making Shenmue III. You'll read his answer on november but don't expect something awesome, but you might learn something (or not).

I've sent an email to Yu Suzuki about the french magazine so he can be aware of what's going on (haven't told him yet) since i thought it'd be internet only. Also offered my service in case he'd like to share Shenmue infos etc, later on. If i can get closer to him, i might be able to help the community even more, but the chances are low. But trying doesn't hurt.

2am here in Japan, resting time or i'll become a zombie.

As always, i'll stick around and come back from time to time.

See you guys !

Re: david deville Interview with Yu suzuki

Short news.

After contacting Yu Suzuki, it seems that he was aware of the uploaded audio file on youtube. He did not ask me to remove it, but i did because i respect him.

From now on, in order to maintain good contact with Suzuki san, i have decided to not upload audio files anymore.

Re: david deville Interview with Yu suzuki

Yeah its Retro Playing Mag#4.

Regarding the translation, i started 2 hours ago, i am halfway through it but since my english is not that good, i will leave it to Shenmuedojo admin once its done. Feel free to rectify grammar mistakes, unusable words etc. I am more comfortable in french, but will do my best to provide a good translation.

If i keep working on it today, it should be done soon. I will add artworks, images etc, then we will decide (shenmuedojo,master and i) when is the best time to publish it.

See you all soon !

Re: Yu Suzuki Interview: Shenmue, From Prototypes to Today

Yeah i provided answers and brought questions.

Regarding Grand Masters, my mouth is sealed sorry. But i am not giving up, just like most of us and will keep working hard to make sure we get Shenmue III in the future.

Here is what Suzuki san said :

"With the new infos i am allowing to share, i want Shenmue fans to imagine characters design"

Basically, he still has hope to make it and doesnt want to give up, thats how i felt while talking to him.

Him sharing everything would ruin it all so imagination is something that make us wait while he is still trying to sort it out.

Yu Suzuki is really a great person. Hope to meet with him again.

Glad you liked it and sorry kept you waiting.

Edit :

Regarding 帝, Tei is a grade within the organization.

Re: david deville Interview with Yu suzuki

I've tried to ask the best questions while i still had time. We already knew some things but i couldn't expect to get exclusive informations only.

Yu Suzuki is really happy to see how fans are still there to provide support, seeing people that are still waiting for him to finish his game etc.

I have no details regarding his plan and even if i did, i probably wouldn't be allowed to post. But right now, i have no infos. All i know is that he's still working on finding a solution. Shenmue needs a specific budget (how much, i have no idea) but if he manages to gather enough money, nothing should refrain him from starting Shenmue III's development.

Regarding HD Remakes, no idea either. That question was one of the last ones, but i had no time to ask him, we were already done and both had to leave.

If i ever get the chance to meet with him again, i will ask him.

Re: Thoughts on Ziming Hong NOT being one of the four leader

There is no mistake.

Yu Suzuki told me : here are the last 2 bosses of the Chiyoumen, West and North.

I've seen them in details and trust me, Ziming is not one of them at all.

Re: Thoughts on Ziming Hong NOT being one of the four leader

Maybe at some point, Ziming was a leader (i cannot confirm, i don't know, i am just guessing) and then the story has changed. I think that's possible.

But from what i have seen, the character on the upper left fits perfectly, there is no mistake. The last character i saw could fit into that supposed Ziming shadow, that's how i feel about it.

Yu Suzuki told me that he was not one of the leaders so UNLESS he plan to change it during the development, Ziming is, right now, not one of the leaders, i am 100% sure.

He also said this :

"You can tell them the following names : Koutei and Gentei. I want fans to imagine them."

So pretty much, as a gift to all of us, he provided names so you could try to imagine how they look like.

Giving us everything through an interview, artworks, all story details would pretty much mean he's giving up and as you can see, that's not the case.

Let's keep pushing Sega or any other company that could make Shenmue III a reality because, trust me, Yu Suzuki is a genius and i would feel very bad if Shenmue III never get a release date.

Re: Legitimate Seal?

Be careful tho. The Limited edition of Shenmue NTSC-J with the jukebox has no spinecard. I have seen so many copies, there is no mistake.

However, the simple edition NTSC-J comes with a spinecard.

My original LE of Shenmue I bought in Japan is definetly not a fake one and still had no spinecard. Even the import store in my city confirmed that no spinecard came with the limited edition (or it's inside the box, but i doubt it).

Simple edition :

Limited edition (looks like mine) :

http://page6.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/f133146132

As you can see, no spinecard.

Re: Unused Shenmue Assets in Shenmue 2 (Shenmue 3 Assets?)

Not sure who OSY is but for a mystery reason i cannot provide, i kinda know who is Rakousei. Which ... well, makes it easier to understand who is OSY but no real name on that character sadly.

Maybe i should write this down and ask Yu Suzuki who is OSY and if he was supposed to be in Shenmue II at first or in Shenmue III, if i ever get the chance to see him again.

Regarding OSY again, i am almost sure he's located in the Miao Temple. Now i don't get why OSY character datas are actually in the game but not the temple and the area itself... Weird choice annd sounds like they either had to cut it down but was originally planned for the Xbox version or... simply Shenmue III first chapter.

Nice video, keep them coming !

Re: Can someone translate Japanese...

I wouldn't bother translating as he's not active anymore on twitter. And Shenmue Gai services have stopped for a while now.

I asked Yu Suzuki during the interview if he would like to release Shenmue Gai and Virtua Fighter Fever Combo overseas because i thought that's a shame we didn't get the chance to play those titles and he said that he'd like to if that's possible.

So no, it's not going to happen tomorrow, BUT if he had the opportunity and chance to do it, i am sure he would do it. Someone would have to translate everything about Shenmue Gai : items, menus, characters, story, quests etc and since the game is not available anymore... it's a difficult task isn't it.

Yu Suzuki is not really into social networks. He has no facebook, had a twitter but his last tweet was like one year ago. I think that he doesn't like to share anything private on internet. No one really knows about his family etc. (i can understand that tho).

Even if you check YsNet last updates, Virtua Fighter Fever Combo has no recent updates. I am not sure what's going on really.

Maybe he's onto some big project and it's going to take some time before anything comes up or he has no plans at the moment. But anyway, you can still follow him on twitter if you want to, that's his official account. Now i wouldn't expect news any time soon.

Edit : well after looking at his twitter account real quick, seems like he was active during 2011 but not that much. Nowadays you see people sending multiple tweets each day, Yu Suzuki san has like 13 tweets starting april 2011 till end of 2011.

Short messages about him arriving at E3, going to a restaurant located around Shinagawa etc. I am surprised he has shared so many infos back then and now is rather quiet. He's a busy man tho so... that's probably normal.

Re: Could Ryo Possibly End Up Joining The Chiyoumen?

Unless Ryo has to join the Chiyoumen to break them from the inside as a spy, i highly doubt he's going to join and organize a mirror apocalypse party.

Regarding Baihu... i know you guys want to know about this but there's nothing i can leak right now unless Yu Suzuki allows me to. While we were talking, i promised that if some things had to be kept secrets, i would and i cant take that back. And let's not say that if you want me to eventually work with him again in the future, i have to avoid writing too much and make sure that he can trust me.

Working with japanese people takes some time and i am a total stranger to him (well, not anymore but still am compared to some) and my main project is to keep a contact and work with him in the future. Not sure if that's going to happen to be honest, but i really want to.

Now, from what i am allowed to say... how can i write this down. I will make it pretty clear :

All the remaining Chiyoumen leaders, North, South and West are characters that you have never seen before. The only thing Yu Suzuki told me was :

"i want Shenmue fans to use their imagination and imagine how the North and West leaders may look like".

If Yu Suzuki wants us to imagine how they look like, that mean he doesn't want to give up on Shenmue and just release everything right away.

Yu Suzuki has the will to make Shenmue III, he wants to, there is absolutely 0 doubt about this. However, he has to take his time and think about how it can be done, with who, how much it would cost etc.

He didn't say anything regarding the budget, except that he had to work on it. Yu Suzuki is a smart man and if he ever gets the chance to produce it like he would like to, i am sure he will.

15 years is very long and if that's a long wait for us, just imagine how long that must be for Yu Suzuki who is holding all the Shenmue informations for himself without being able to release it like he would like to.

Just think about it even one minute, if you had the project berkley script on your desk for like 15 years, reading it here and there and couldn't share it with the fans trusting you, how would you feel ?

I won't give up on Shenmue III and won't give up on Yu Suzuki. Like i've said, if i was rich, i'd fund it right now, sadly i can't and money wise, i cannot help Yu Suzuki. But if i can provide help by spreading informations in english and french, every year if i have to, like a Shenmue Community Manager, then i will.

Sorry, i was a bit off topic but i really wanted to share his words again and make sure fans would not give up on Shenmue.

Re: "Sample" version of Dreamcast Japanese Shenmue 2?

While Shenmue I sample version is just a regular "sticker" that you could make yourself i guess, Shenmue II sample cover is a bit different (no sticker is what i mean).

I cannot give details as i do not have any, but i do have it :

Re: "Sample" version of Dreamcast Japanese Shenmue 2?

I've had some luck to get mine. A shop owner sold me his brand new sealed Shenmue II Demo Disc and gave me the Shenmue II Sample Cover as a gift. So my guess is that this cover probably came with the Shenmue II Demo Disc at some point and was a cover used by japanese shops during Shenmue II release.

Re: Shenmue Collections

I am still hunting for some items in order to complete my collection.

I managed to get 3 posters (out of 4) but i am still missing Shenhua... :

http://s20.postimg.org/au7cviy99/10585489_475766899227228_1910888207_n.jpg

So i have Ryo, Ren, Niao Sun (in France tho, not here in Japan). But i am looking for someone willing to sell the Shenhua's poster. If you have a spare one (some people might have more than one, so i am giving this a shot). Please contact me. That'd help me a lot !

Same for the mugs, i have 3 out of 4, still need the Niao Sun's one. If you happen to have one and feel like selling... PM me please !

Oh and, since i am like asking for the stuff i still need, i am looking for the Shenmue pen (not the black one, i finally found it) but the other one (from TGS 98 aswell). If you ever happen to find one or have a spare one, i am your man !

Thanks. :king:
