Remember to upvote the AMA itself for visibility, hope this convinces more people to back the Kickstarter!

We need to link the AMA in other related subreddits too if it's not there already.

Can't tell if trolling or not.

But I'll bite anyway.

You do realize that a HUGE part of the fan base speaks English, right?

And do you really think the game will sell at all (to anyone other than rabid fans and even then not so much) if there is no English dub?

When I was working at a video store and Pan's Labyrinth came out, people were PISSED that it was only in Spanish. That movie was INCREDIBLE.

I seriously cannot believe that anyone could have this opinion. It's just beyond absurd.


I'm sure you are aware that dubbing is not cheap right? Plus Shenmue has VO for every single character. So if Shenmue 3 were to have English and Japanese dub, I wonder how many new npcs Yu Suzuki would have to sacrifice to accommodate your ENGLISH must have attitude. Why not Chinese as well? The story takes place in China after all, and the potential of selling copies in the Chinese market is more appealing than in the USA, where the Shenmue's sales proved to be not so great in the past right?

Yeah but that doesn't mean shenmue 3 will since you know different budgets etc. They may go the Yakuza route where only important Characters are voiced. It's really too early to jump to conclusions like that.

Q: Any possibility of a bicycle finally being added to Shenmue 3? Thank you so much again, Yu!

A: There is a 60 horsepower bike in Shenmue 1. For Shenmue, 3 I was thinking about something with 1 horsepower.


I can't believe he answered! That's really incredible. I'm very curious what he meant by his answer though. Horse not bike maybe?

Calm down it showed English speaking in the kickstarter video and it was shown in the USA so I am sure English is coming on what we have already seen. It should include both languages and be an option to choose what you want.

Our twenty eighth question from the 500k community. -Will Shenmue 3 have any sort of multiplayer component? Perhaps Co-op or a versus mode?

Of course it costs money..
But it would most likely cost them more money (in sales) not to.
I'm sure that Yu is more than aware of this.

Would I go so far as to cancel my donation?

No. I'm a big enough fan to take it in any form.

But that's just it, I'm a fan.

Newcomers will be put off of it and will speak so. Can you imagine the backlash?

I hope the minigames from the previous games return and you can play them online. Now you can play Lucky Hit or try Arm Wrestling and even fighting online! That would be great.

Q: 鈴木さんの意見で,アーケードゲームの真髄は何ですか? その影響シェンムの中でありますか? In Suzuki-san’s opinion, what is the essence of arcade games? Are those influences in Shenmue?

A: アーケードでずっと3分に表現にしばられてきたために時間制約のないコンソールでのびのびとゲームを表現したかった結果、シェンムーというゲームが出来上がった。With an arcade game, you are restricted to a 3 minute window to express what the game is. That is how I made games for the longest time. I wanted to create a game that could be played at a more leisurely pace, so I created what ended up being Shenmue.

To be honest, marketwise I think it's better to have only eng dub.

As a fan, I prefer more content over voice acting.

To be critical, I like both eng and jap ryo voices, but the directing is so bad in eng that I kinda prefer jap so at least I don't know what I'm hearing. But nostalgia is nostalgia.

If the VO direction would not be in hands of japanese (or french) people, I would side with only english voice.

I would never imagine myself playing Shenmue 3 and have interactions with mute npcs. So you want a downgraded version of the game? Budget aside, follow my logic here. For every actor hired Yu Suzuki could have made a new NPC or implement new elements to the game. You simply can't have both as this is not realistic. So pick your posion.

Q: Yu, are you really going to be signing your autograph on the illustration for the $300 kickstarter signed collectors edition? So far there is almost 2000 backers, that is a lot of illustrations to sign! 2.) Will you please keep the japanese audio for Shenmue III? A lot of fan loves the Japanese voice overs over the US voice overs.

A: Of course I will write them all myself!
