Don't Get Your Hopes Up: Shenmue 3 Exists

Posted on Wednesday, December 8 @ 22:20:33 Eastern by
The man behind the classic Dreamcast series, Yu Suzuki, recently told 1up that a concept for Shenmue 3 "already exists."

That concept has existed for like 10 years probably.... It'd have to exist for so many planned sequels in the series.

Suzuki explained the concept behind Shenmue 3:

The concept for Shenmue 3 already exists, so... The world of Shenmue 1 and 2 expanded outward. But Shenmue 3 doesn't expand outward, but inward.

A lot of the dialogue is used for the main character and especially dialogue with Shenhua. They talk about a lot of different, deeper things. For example, and I can't say too much, but here's an example.

This is not actually in the game, but as an example to give you an idea of what I mean by deeper dialogue, when Shenhua and Ryo are at home, Shehua will ask Ryo is he would like to drink tea or coffee and the player will select  one or the other.

Or, Shenhua will ask Ryo a hypothetical question like: "There are four animals; a monkey, cat, dog and bird. You are crossing the river but you need to leave one behind. Which one will you leave behind?" And the player has to choose one.


Suzuki, you couldn't give us an actual example? You had to make those up?

(Pictured: Not Shenmue 3, which doesn't really exist.)

Some of those choices seem about as meaningful as deciding whether or not to endorse a store on the Citadel as Commander Shepherd. If the questions are as vanilla as "coffee or tea," what's the point? Is Shenmue 3 actually Shenmue Seaman?

I have to admit, and you'll all probably stone me to death for this, but I have never played a Shenmue game. I sure as hell am not going to start with Suzuki's upcoming Shenmue City, a mobile game spin-off slated for Japanese release.
