New interview of Cédric Biscay (French & English)

Postby Kiske » Fri Nov 04, 2016 12:03 pm

And it's all 'bout Shenmue :D

https://medium.com/@ShenmueForever/inte ... .p9l8r21xa

SF — Will the fans once again be in for some surprises about Shenmue 3 at the next MAGIC?

CB —We have been working on this but I don’t know yet which form it will take exactly.


SF — We know that this has been asked to you on a regular basis, but will the PC version eventually be available as a reward in the PayPal Slacker Backer campaign?

CB —It’s planned, yes, but as I have been saying for months, I’m aware that time seems long on this matter.

Those, who follow the path of a warrior, must be ready to die, in order to stand for one's convictions, live for one's convictions, die for one's convictions. That is how I lived my life.

So is it possible we won't get the big re-reveal at Playstation Experience in Decemer and have to wait until Magic Monaco '17 in Feburary?

Anything shown at PSX will receive far more publicity than MAGIC, so while it's not impossible, I have doubts that anything prepared in time for December will be arbitrarily delayed until February.

If Suzuki and the game are still at MAGIC in some capacity, then MAGIC too will benefit from the increased excitement generated by an impressive showing at PSX, rather than relying on the name value of a game that some seem to think vanished into thin air once the Kickstarter ended.

What LGS said.

Cedric doesn't seem to know exactly what will be at MAGIC '17 in terms of Shenmue III just yet. If it was the re-reveal I don't think he'd give that answer; because Shenmue III is a guaranteed ticket-seller and hyping it up as the first proper look at the game would be beneficial to him and MAGIC.

What we know for sure is that there are no plans for a big update before December. That doesn't guarantee a December reveal by any means, but when I asked:

Is it safe to say we may get something big in December, or is there no plan for that either?


His response was:

I am not a spoiler ! ;)


He's playing coy, but given he directly said they have no plans for a big update before December, I don't think he'd dodge my question like that if there was nothing in the pipeline.

Now, as for PSX, it's just educated guesswork that it'll be there based on Yu being in LA the same month, and the obvious Sony connection.

It could appear at The Game Awards (though I doubt it, PSX is a better fan-oriented venue), or just a big Kickstarter update around Christmas, but given what the Japan dinner backers have said about what they saw (and it being old material at that), a big, public re-reveal seems like an imminent inevitability rather than something we're just dreaming about.

We could have Shenmue 3 at both PSX and Magic. That's my hope at least!

However, I don't think Yu Suzuki will attend the Magic next Year.
(In part because of this tweet: https://twitter.com/cedricbiscay/status ... 1677045760)

Let's assume Shenmue 3 WILL be at the Magic. What can we expect?
Just new screenshots, or maybe a teaser showing the new characters models (if not revealed earlier)?

Screens and hopefully details about the backer demo, if we haven't heard about it already by then.

That'd be cool!

A live demo would work better at MAGIC than somewhere like PSX. The audience at PSX would be wondering why nobody has been shot within the first minute of gameplay.

Kidding. Mostly...

As most of you have already said, I think we'll have a re-reveal trailer at psx, based on several tweets of Cedric. And about magic 17, they sure that will show some screens or a short video, after all, shenmue is the big project of shibuya, how couldn't be there?

Hopefully they finally start putting out the screens at a decent quality. Have we had *any* 1080P screens since the reveal?

My guess is: something at PSX, or, failing that, something at MAGIC, or, failing that, something at E3. Since I'm always a hope for the best prepare for the worst guy, I'm fully prepared to wait until E3 is that's what's best for the game's image in the press.
