See, I don't get this. Why are fans so hell bent on having realism in Shenmue? Magic is only going to make it more interesting and intriguing. I mean, "realism" is boring. I want Shenmue to become even more awesome and legendary but for this to happen, it must go above and beyond normal things.


The ending for Shenmue 2 was extremely borderline in my opinion. There was always going to be some mysticism around the mirrors and I would have been extremely disappointed if there was nothing special about them with Lan Di only wanting them to sell on the next episode of Pawn Stars. With that said, it is a side story and I just hope whatever mysticism is behind it does not distract from the personal development of Ryo and his quest for revenge.
For my part I prefer fifty thousand rifles to five million votes

My conscience won't let me go shoot my brother, or some darker people, or some poor hungry people in the mud for big powerful America. And shoot them for what? They never called me nigger, they never lynched me, they didn't put no dogs on me, they didn't rob me of my nationality, rape and kill my mother and father. ... Shoot them for what? How can I shoot them poor people? Just take me to jail.

Could I have made mistakes? One does not build cities if one is guided by doubt. But can one govern in absolute certainty? I know that my beliefs have elevated me, just as I know that the things I have rejected would have destroyed me. But the city... it is collapsing before my... have I become so convinced by my own beliefs that I have stopped seeing the truth? Perhaps. ..... To question is to surrender. I will not question.

Dreaming of a girl after finding a magical mirror which could resurrect a mystical beast only to meet that girl in real life OR even dream of her speaking to you about failing to meet her establishes the mysticism well early on in my opinion. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :P :P :P :P :P No mean vibes meant of course brotha :)

I think that Shenmue 3 will def have a cliffhanger but probably just from upcoming story and not a holy shit moment like the end of 2.

It's Shenmue ...the end of part 3 will at the very least feel like a chapter is closing :)

Oh yes, that it will. We've been waiting half of our lives for this and we've been fighting for the continuation for so long. So many years. With about a year to go, S3 seems right around the corner now but I can hardly wait. I always tell myself to be patient but I think about Shenmue every day and I finally want to know how the story continues.

Still, even though S3 will be published sooner or later the void inside me will only be filled when S4 or S5 will have completed the story.

Probably because all of the other parts of the two games were somewhat realistic. The magic at the end of Shenmue 2 isn't too crazy, though. It was just ultra surprising and left us at one hell of a cliffhanger.

We know Shenmue III will not end the series so at the very least it will end unfinished. I have a feeling YS will leave us on the edge of our seat again and I believe work will begin quickly on the next (and what I presume will be the final) game.

I highly doubt Shenmue IV is going to be the last one. It should go up to at least Shenmue V.
