Kickstarter Update #60: Dinner in Japan Reward Report

Postby masterchan777 » Thu Sep 29, 2016 3:59 am

Greetings Eveyone!
The 16th of September was the Dinner with Yu Suzuki in Tokyo reward day, and we wanted to share how the day went. Shenmue III backers from around the world came to Japan for the event that would be a day filled with Japanese and Chinese culture in the historical centers of Kamakura and China Town in Yokohama. Yu-san was there to conduct the tour and of course talk Shenmue.

Searching around the hotel lobby where everyone was meeting up, who do we find, but someone with “Shenmue” tattooed on their arm in Japanese! From the first, we were already beside ourselves with how deeply their love for Shenmue ran.

Image

Image

After the meeting and greeting, the first stop was the ancient city of Kamakura. Among the heritage rich streets lay Komachi-dori where everyone took in the atmosphere of the local vendors while making their way to Tsurugaoka Hachimangū, the most prominent and important shrine in the region. Perhaps the scene may conjure up some Dobuita memories?

The Great Buddha!

Having experienced the best of old world Japan, it was on to China Town. Yu-san livened the ride over bringing up everyone’s favorite topic of conversation.

Yu-san talks Shenmue and Chinese culture as they stroll through Japan’s largest China Town.

And the day is topped off with a Chinese round table dinner. The Shenmue talk heats up as Yu-san listens intently to everyone’s ideas.
The day spent with the group was a reaffirmation in the wellspring of devotion we are so proud to share, and it pitched up the fighting spirit of all on the development team. It was great opportunity that came out of the crowdfunding, do-it-together experience, and for that we give thanks.
So the push forward continues, and we ask again for your continued support that we may put Shenmue III in your hands!

Wow, It looks like they had a great experience!

According to Peter's face, I suppose he admired the new Ryo's model :D

Peter's expression is priceless and the best guarantee about Shenmue 3 quality so far! :mrgreen:

Glad you all had a great time :)

We may not have seen more of the game, but this update really made me smile.

Great stuff. Though I'm glad Adam's smiling, or there'd be headlines about "speechless Shen Mue 3 Kickstarter backers aghast at how much they've been ripped off by con man Suzuki and his tin pot game!" :lol:

(Technically they could still crop him out I suppose, but once you open Photoshop you concede a level of desperation that would shame even the most bitter of journos.)

Sorry to be a debbie downer but this is a waste of an update IMO. But I guess they have nothing else of substance to show us until the next big unveil at a gaming show.

Looks like the old paper-rock-scissors game in action here - Peter, what was that about? (And who won? :))
