Dengeki and 4Gamer interviews quick translations

Postby DEVILLE_David » Thu Aug 24, 2017 7:32 am

Hello guys,

2 new interviews have been posted on Japanese websites. Full translations will most likely be done by Switch I think, but I've decided to translate some stuff quickly on my free time.

Hope you'll like it !

From Dengeki :

- Anticipated things (best 3) : 1. Continuation of the story, 2. Open World, 3. Forklifts

- Suzuki san thought at first that it'd be difficult to have something like an open world (because of the budget), but with the recent partnership with Deep Silver and development's improvements, he might be able to provide something that has the atmosphere of an open world. Volume of the 2nd area that we can see in the PV should be around 3 times bigger. That's also why they had to announce the delay, because the game's content has been improved and they need more time

- In the "Shenmue World", players can earn money through different ways like gambling, selling items (to a pawn shop for example) and purchase new moves (scrolls) to get stronger and beat a boss

- He's also talking about Shenmue's logo changes. "My father wrote Shenhua's kanji (莎花). And my mother worked on the "愛すべき友を持て" (Keep friends, those you love, close to you) calligraphy. However, I thought it'd be great if I could do it myself this time

Image

- Players who haven't played the first two games will have no problem playing the 3rd one. For Shenmue II, we added a 15 minutes movie of the first Shenmue so players could catch up, but this time we'll work on something more simple based on images and texts

Image

4Gamer :

Can you tell us why you decided to work with Deep Silver ?

- Suzuki san : We worked on the Kickstarter Campaign right after announcing the game and it was a success. However, it's difficult to do an open world with the budget we had, that's why we kept looking for a partner. They already worked with Sega in the past and they were a recommandation from people I trust

- About improvements, Suzuki san is providing an example. For the 2nd city we are going to visit in the game, they planned around 50 to 60 NPC, but now, this number could reach 200

- Shenmue III will start 6 hours after the end of Shenmue II

Other things are mostly stuff we already know like the phone calls etc.

Wow! I am so hyped for this game. I am so happy this is going to spend more time in oven if this is the scale we will be getting in the end.

NIce one Dave.

I began some work on the new 4Gamer one.. but it's quite a bit of work. But hope you guys get something out of it. Switch etc will do a better job and faster.

4Gamer.net(以下,4Gamer):
 よろしくお願いします。
 さっそくですが,今回,ティザートレイラーがgamescom 2017の開催に合わせて公開されました。なぜE3ではなくgamescomなのでしょうか。

Nice to meet you. Without further ado, you revealed the teaser trailer to the public at Gamescom 2017. Why did you choose Gamescom over E3?


鈴木 裕氏(以下,鈴木氏):
 Deep Silverとの契約がE3 2017の前にできていれば……というところですね。最後のサインが進まずに,トレイラーの公開はgamescom開催のタイミングになりました。

The contract negotiations with Deep Silver occurred before E3. When we finally signed it was appropriate timing to show the trailer at Gamescom.

4Gamer:
 そういうことでしたか。
 ではあらためて,Deep Silverをパブリッシャとして選んだ理由を教えてください。

Ah I see is that how it was.
Again, can you elaborate why you chose Deep Silver as your publisher?

鈴木氏:

 シェンムーIIIは,発表してすぐにKickstarterでのキャンペーンを行い,それは成功しました。
 ただ,オープンワールドのゲームを作るとなると,それでも予算が足りないという状況だったんですね。ですからパートナーとなるべき会社を探し続けて,何社かリストアップした中にDeep Silverが入っていたわけです。
When Shenmue III was announced, the Kickstarter campaign it was a success. Usually, when open world games made, the budget is not quite enough. Therefore we were searching for a partner and out of the list we chose Deep Silver.

4Gamer:
 決め手はどういった部分でしたか。
What was the deciding factor?

鈴木氏:
 Deep SilverはSEGAと協業したことがあったり,信用できる人から推薦があったりしたので「これは現地に行ってこよう」となり,最終的には契約することになりました。gamescomの開催に間に合ってホッとしているところです
Deep Silver have partnerships with Sega, they were well regarded and recommended. Eventually we signed a contract with them. We made it in time for Gamescom.

4Gamer:
 発売延期が発表されてからあまり動きがなかったので,Deep Silverとの協業が明らかにされたことでファンもほっとしているかもしれませんね。
When you announced the release date delay, there wasn't much progress shown. Fans appear relieved to hear the partnership with Deep Silver.
鈴木氏:
 実は,発売時期の変更を発表した時には,Deep Silverとの契約に目処がたっていました。ゲームの規模大きくしてオープンワールドでいこうと決めたためにやることが増え,その結果として延期になったわけです。
Actually, with the change of the release date and the partnership with Deep Silver prospects are looking good. We decided to inclearse the game's open world scope can be more realised as a result of the delay.

200 NPCs? Holy shit. Isn't that about the number of NPCs in Shenmue II's Wan Chai? I wonder if they'll all be approachable and unique a la the previous games.

This Deep Silver thing is sounding pretty good to me. Glad to hear they're finding other sources of money to make this game the best game possible.

This is very exciting news. It sounds like Deep Silver has granted him the budget to make the truly open world he originally envisioned at $10 million.

I can't think of any other explanation for the change from 50-60 NPCs to 200 than the Chobu goals are met.

Its going to be interesting to see how the Stretch Goal and Slacker Backer pages look in a few weeks. Presumably there'll be some more 'ITSSS A SCAM OMG!!!111' articles once again from the lower end of the gene pool.

Holy smokes. Based on these figures, this new Deep Silver partnership may have QUADRUPLED Shenmue III's original budget now.

This blows the original $10 million goal completely out the water.

Wow.

:shock:
