What, in your opinion, makes you believe it doesn't look like a good game? Marketing aside, Shenmue III, in my opinion, seems worthy of the series. It has an intriguing storyline & beautiful environments. The character designs are approaching what most consider production quality, too.


Watching the trailer for the second time I admit I was being a bit harsh. What was stuck in my head was Ryo's bland expression and the terrible modelling on the second character he was fighting against. Those terrible arms are just so terrible.
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.

IF Shenmue III does come out this year. Then it absolutely can’t afford to miss having some presence at E3. It’s the place the dream finally came true. Has to be there.


Unfortunately, I don’t think it’ll be there this year. I’m starting to believe we’ll be getting a 2019 delay in a few months.

In my opinion, whether Shenmue III is released this year will depend on how fast YsNet & its associates can resolve the game's remaining problems. If they can be quick about it, they'll still be on track for a December release. We'll get an announcement sometime before E3 if they can't.

I believe an E3 presence is crucial for the game this year, as people will really begin to question the status of the game missing the big stage.

Looking at the Fall lineup, it really depends on that 2018 release holding true. Both Red Dead 2 and Kingdom Hearts III will be in the fall(former confirmed, the latter doesn't have a date but does have a 2018 window).

Those two games are powerful enough to overshadow any other release, not including the obligatory CoD and Battlefield games. I think December is their most logical window, but I'm feeling a delay to Spring 2019 which is why I think if it appears at E3 it'll have a Coming Soon attached.

I'm also increasingly confident in a delay to 2019. That's why I believe it's more likely we see Shenmue at e3 next year than this year.

It's a must to be shown at e3 during the year of release, and based on what we've seen I am skeptical that the game will be completed within 6-9 months.

If they're still only showing environments and character models at MAGIC, then it's definitely being delayed and pushed back to next year. The game should at least be somewhat presentable as a game at this point if it's coming out in a few months.

Don't forget that Cedric has been playing the last build, that means there's mechanics beside background and npcs

That will likely be the build we see. Whether we see more is up for debate.

I agree if it's only stills and characters then a delay is likely (obviously unconfirmed at this stage).

Looking forward to it.

Personally I think Shenmue 3 needs to be at E3, Gamescom, TGS and EGX (because I am UK based!)
One day we will have our revenge.

yu suzuki never shows anything of his games until they are pretty much out for release. he even did so with the first shenmue, which didn't have any "gameplay" footage until a few months before release.

This time it was publically funded so while he's not obligated there is certainly a pressure to release footage and screenshots. But I agree, if all we get are environmental and character shots with no identifiable gameplay beyond "walking around" the game is pushing to 2019.

That's where my stance on it having to be at E3 this year comes into play. If we get some solid recent build screens and character models, as well as some gameplay information, that's okay for MAGIC and may satiate fans for at least a time. I expect complete silence until the end of May after MAGIC, which will only accentuate the importance of a reveal.

Come E3, people are really going to begin to wonder what the game is gonna at least somewhat play like. It could still be pushed to 2019 and still make an appearance at E3.

Kingdom Come did that and didn't release for a good 8-9 months after that. We saw some video of a very early build at Gamescom, but people are gonna want to see recent stuff.

Are you sure? I was hyped for Shenmue long before its release and I remember I was always reading previews on it and looking at gameplay screenshots in magazines ages before it was released. I would buy any magazine I could that had any new information on the game. I remember when GamesMaster reviewed the Japanese version of the game when it was finally released and I would read that review over and over again until it was finally released in the West. I'm sure I'd already been reading about the game and looking at gameplay shots for ages before the Japanese release.
