Yu Suzuki has revealed on the latest Twitch Stream that the modeler who did Shenhua's 3D model in Shenmue 1 and 2 is coming back to work on Shenmue 3. He was referred to as "Mr.Ito", presumably Takashi Ito. Yu Suzuki and Kenji Miyawaki also reiterated their commitment to improve the characters faces in Shenmue 3.

Great news. Ryo will look like Ryo again, not some weird mutation with adult-onset fetal alcohol syndrome.

You have no idea how relieved I am to hear Suzuki managing to assemble so much of the original Shenmue development team like this. It means Shenmue 3 will end up feeling just like the classic Shenmue experience we are all wanting and will be the sequel we have been waiting so long for.

It really is impressive, clearly the people who worked on the games appreciated Yu's vision then and do now. :mrgreen:

Watching the process of this game's development over the next 2+ years is going to be a very fascinating journey.

About which character model we're talking about ? The CGI or the ingame version of Shenhua ? Because they're completely different charadesigns.
