The battle system sounds fundamentally different than the FREE battle system we all know and love. You defeat bosses by linking together technique scrolls? I don't like the sound of that. But it's unfair to judge it before seeing it.


That seems so awkward :lol:

I like the idea of mixing reflexe and intelligence through QTE though.

So we could have in one game : QTE, Freeze QTE, Battle QTE, Free Battle +random arcade gameplays.

I can see at least "2,4,5,6,7"

No three....


Updated on the image! And the word before them is "Currently".

Today I asked a native Japanese speaker to have a look at the image... and according to her, these are not actually numbers but messily-written Japanese characters! The word means "to be accomplished" or "to be achieved".

Ha! That's quite a coincidence isn't it looking at it? Take her word for it guess :-k

Would make sense as "currently to be achieved" as heading

This is some X-Files shit. Good job guys. Nerds unite and all that.

Actually really like that Father--->Ryo--->Promiss--->Shahua bit.. when I think of a promiss from Iwao the first thing that comes to mind is his last words.. "Keep friends, those you love, close to you."
This seems like a fitting central theme to the end of the entire Shenmue story.

This "Rapport System" mechanic seems to be entirely foreshadowed doesn't it? Brilliant! :mrgreen:

Now that you mention it mate, its even clearer on this other image, like you can see the tails and stuff,espically on the "number" 5

I don't know it might be akin to that Prince of Persia game that was targeted toward people that weren't good at games but was still great.

Trying to read the blurry notebook reminds me of Ryo trying to decode the Chinese letter in Shenmue I: "I was wondering if you could translate this letter for me..."

Yeah, with the processed image you made, those "numbers" were magically transformed into characters, like a kind of optical illusion.

I know this is not directly related to Shenmue III, but something to be considered in the long term, and indeed an all time favourite request for an English translation; Shenmue Premiere video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9sd3NtjPfY. Therefore, if you are interested, that would be a legendary contribution to Shenmue's legacy. :)

Looks like a great candidate for translation. I guess its length (almost 2 hours) is why no one ever took up the challenge...

If there's still interest in the community for it, then I can certainly take a look.
