I'm not actually worked up about it though. Like I said I'm just a bit bummed about a minor spoiler.

Fair play, I just wanna show some respect for Suzuki-san here a second. Did we think/guess/realise this stuff would be in the game? I'm getting more and more hyped about his vision. Imagine if this was for the DC all those years ago, would've have been dope.

Already had a feeling that character was going to return anyway.

Didn't we already kinda know about Ren returning from the postmortem?

And I also have reservations about taking control of another character. I feel like Shenmue is Ryo's story and to a lesser extent Shenhua's story(by the way, what's the official pronunciation of Shenhua? I've heard "Shen-fah" and "Shen-hua"). So I could maaaaaybe see taking control of Shenhua but I really wish we could just control Ryo. But not Ren or anyone else.

To experience the game through Ryo's point of view is very important, in my opinion.

I would never have guessed that we would get to control multiple characters. How much the first 2 games revolve around Ryo to the point of collecting stuff and generating income I just wouldn't have pictured the series having multiple playable characters.

Can you spoil completely the name of the character for the other readers ?

I'm just posting to try and patch up the spoiler a bit. A few days ago Yu suzuki said that we'll be able to play in areas 'like' Japan. Some people misunderstood it to mean Ryo will be returning to Japan in Shenmue 3. But then it was confirmed that he will remain in China.

So when he says we'll be able to play as characters 'like Shenhua and Ren' he may just be giving an example.

Where did he say that? I remember him saying that you don't return to Japan in 3 and people thinking we do because Choubu sounds like Chubu which is a prefecture in Japan but not that we would get to go to places like Japan.

I can imagine Tom's perspective.

Instead of the d-pad choice for Ryo - "Yes" - "No"

Tom has "OKAAAAAAAAAY" - "Give them a piece of your mind"

Free battle with nothing but tornado kick over and over again. Forward, forward, X. Forward, forward, X.

And then Ren's choice system: "Stab them" - "Slash them"

I bet its going to be very contextual, like specific story scenarios (reimagine the scenario when Ren and Ryo were handcuffed together or something). I don't think its gonna be GTA5.

there's a quote in one of the topics:

People read the following and thought Japan may be in Shenmue 3:
"In Shenmue III, we will have places like Japan and China, of course. Shenmue III paints the pictures of the culture and ideas you can find in eastern Asia"

I always dreamed of controlling Shenhua at some point of the story, especially since the appearance of the camera lock in Shenmue 2 but also since Resident Evil 4 where Ashley became playable in the middle of the story, I thought directly to Shenmue !

Great feature that proves the ambition of Yu as a creator. =D>

Great interview with some good new insights. The return of other characters was to be expected. I wonder how it will fit in the game. Maybe like a little side episode where Ren catches up to Ryo or something.

Ah I missed that. Sounds like Japan is in the game though going by that, Yu Suzuki said that we don't return to Japan in the 3rd but that may mean just that Ryo doesn't return in the 3rd and that with this controlling other characters thing we may control some of them in Japan? I find it really odd the way he stated it if Japan isn't in the game. Or maybe it's just something lost in translation.

It's called "perspective system", so more than "controlling" other characters will be how they react to certain events that you can see from first person perspective (literal, not gameplay). For example you can see ryo doing his bullshit revenge act, then see xiuying sad about him, then the cat just wanting some milk. Like some "inside info" about other characters state of mind.

It's a really interesting idea.
