You could write it like this :

70人抜きバトル

70人バトル

70人抜き

70人フリーバトル

But I've checked one of my Shenmue's guides and it's "70人バトル".

Edit :

I noticed another wall-hanging scroll in Shenmue II, so thought I would add it here to the scrolls talked about on this thread earlier.

It can be seen in one of the shops on Dragon Street in Kowloon (thanks to James Reiner for his no-clip video of Dragon St here).
Image

The scrolls on the left and right walls, "道可道非常道", is one that also hangs in the Hazuki Dojo, and is the first line of the Classic Chinese text Tao Te Ching. It can be translated as "The Way that can be told of is not an unvarying way". The translation given in the game is "Principles cannot be expressed only by words".

This shop also has a different scroll on the back wall, "名可名也 非恒名也". This is the second line of the Tao Te Ching and means "The names that can be told of are not unvarying names".

i'm wondering whether it contained a spell to the seal the phoenix mirror's magic, or prevent magic being used to find it. it would be interesting to know what it actually says.

This is intersting and I'd like to know about this too. I've made a very high-res screenshot of the talisman.
It's still rather pixelated as the texture just doesn't have much resolution but hopefully it's enough to read the smaller characters. Is this maybe even written mirrored, so it looks normal when you spot it in the mirror?

Hm, I'm afraid I can't tell what the meaning is as it's written in Chinese. I don't recognize any characters that are the same in Japanese - perhaps 部 at the top right, but it doesn't make sense without context.

Perhaps someone on the Dojo knows Chinese? Or like Ryo we may need to go to Master Chen for help...

It's some kind of talisman based on Taoism?

Image

Talismans are objects that have been thought to have the power to bring good luck. Besides that, they are believed to remove or keep away evil spirits. Strips of paper which are written words of power and religious symbols are examples of talismans. It can heal illnesses, drive away demons and focus benevolent spiritual energies to purify. Moreover, most of them are usually in yellow.

Nice find! It looks very similar to those talismans.

About the script on them (from a book called "Encyclopedia of Taoism"):
Talismans often do include include recognizable symbols and words, but they are not meant to be read by humans. Legible only to the gods, they give power over troops of divine protectors, both within and without the body.

SEGA Holdings COO, Hideki Okamura Interview:

http://www.gamebusiness.jp/article/2015 ... 11621.html

Shenmue and Shenmue 3 are mentioned near the end of the article, that's why a traduction would be nice.

It Appears SCE is backing up the development of Shenmue 3. Shenmue is a Sega IP, are there any plans to support this effort?

Shenmue is of course an important IP, not only to Sega, but also to the many games it has influenced. It was the first of its kind in the go anywhere, do anything open world style games. On top of that Mr. Suzuki had a very strong desire to make Shenmue 3. モノ作りは本当に作りたい人が作るべきで、それが鈴木裕氏を中心としたクリエイターだということです。Of course Sega is interacting with Mr. Suzuki even now. We will continue supporting him concerning Shenmue 3 as well.

Thank you very much Rakim.

That's the first time I read that not only SEGA aknowledge Shenmue 3 but that apparently, they are supporting its development in some way... other than providing assets of the original Shenmue games?

I think it has been translated in Chinese because the original interview is here :

June 19

While the Chinese one has been published in July.

Here's my attempt - hard to form a smooth translation though.
