Recommended Posts

This is gonna blow my mind when this arrives through the letterbox! Huge thanks to all the backers and imo one of the greatest games creator around, Yu Suzuki for making this happen.  Glad to see some light at the end of the tunnel after all the negative feedback regarding Epic/steam situation.

 

Anyone who wants to refresh there memory who Yu Suzuki is and what he has done for this industry, here is a reminder as this guy deserves way more respect than he gets. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yu_Suzuki

I think he probably gets about the right amount of respect (one of the greatest designers without doubt), but it's arguable that others are credited somewhat beyond their input in comparison. Miyamoto has a front-loaded career for me, for example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shigeru_Miyamoto_gameography

 

A lot of people see Zelda as a handover from Miyamoto to Aonuma, forgetting Tezuka. Iwata's fondly remembered, but not so much Yokoi. Nagoshi's gameography is also pretty stellar: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toshihiro_Nagoshi#Gameography

Japanese trailer

 

It's amazing how much better these games sound in Japanese. I mean, the voice acting might be just as terrible as the English version for all I know but I can't actually tell, so it all sounds a hundred times better.

 

Sounds like the same actor for Ryo too, though Ren sounds different.

New new shenmue update

 

Spoiler

Hello Everyone,

 

Reward delivery information is in, so please read on for details.

 

Game Fulfillment

PS4 (Physical / Digital) and Epic Games Store (Digital) games are scheduled for delivery on November 19th, however, there may be slight delays in certain cases.*

*Slight delays may occur depending on the following reasons: post office mail volume during the pre-holiday season; PS4 cross-region selections (PS4 backers who selected a region other than where they live); or areas that are experiencing uncertain or difficult delivery conditions.

 

PC Physical Packages & Disks

Due to production circumstances, PC physical packages and disks will not be delivered by November 19th. Epic Games Store product codes, including for PC physical backers, will be delivered through your survey from Fangamer, so PC physical backers will be able to play at release. 

We apologize for this delay and will post and update once physical packages and disks are ready to ship.

 

PS4 Physical - Asia Region

Also due to production circumstances, Asian region PS4 physical copies will not be delivered by November 19th. We do not have an exact date for delivery of the Asian region PS4 physical copies, so we are providing digital download codes for applicable backers through the survey on the day of release. Physical disks will be shipped as soon as production is complete.

We are sorry for this inconvenience, but hope you will enjoy the digital version during the wait. An announcement will be made once physical disks are ready to ship.

 

Physical Rewards

As previously announced, physical reward production and shipping preparations are underway, however, some rewards will be shipped after the game release date.

 

Rewards to Ship at Game Release

The following rewards are scheduled for shipping arrival on, or soon after, November 19th. 

*Please note that the game will be shipped separately from other physical rewards.

Digital Rewards

All digital rewards (including game codes) are scheduled for delivery on November 19th. Digital rewards will be claimed through the "Downloads and Download Codes" section of your survey provided by Fangamer. Fangamer will resend your survey access email for the release.

 

Official Website Name Credit

We are in the process of updating the official Shenmue III website with backer names based on recent survey responses. The backer credit page is scheduled to go up after the release date. An announcement will be posted here in the updates once the site is ready.

*Depending on refund and posting timing, some names of refunded backers may be listed.

 

In-Game Rewards

All in-game rewards are scheduled for delivery on November 19th. The in-game reward code will also be claimed through the "Downloads and Download Codes" section of your survey provided by Fangamer.

In-Game Reward Activation

Two codes are necessary to activate your in-game rewards. The first is the platform-side game code—either your PS4 voucher code or your Epic Games Store product code. The second code is your "Backer Code", which will be entered in the game. Codes are linked and both must be activated in order to unlock your in-game reward or reward pack.

 

Please follow the updates in the days ahead for more Shenmue III info. Thank you always for your continued support!

So eager to play this! If anyone hears of any online shops sending stock early please post it here. I've asked SimplyGames and they're dispatching Monday; which is fair enough we've waited 18 years but I really need to play it on the 19th!! I wonder if most places have actually received their inventory yet? Still don't have any word on my Kickstarted edition being posted either :( PANIC :lol:

As my previous post on here, absolutely delighted to hear Yu Suzuki got life time achievement award.  It is deserved, because unlike alot of other developers Yu was into the hardware as much as the software side and had alot of input developing Segas model 1,2,3 boards as well as Dreamcast.  He pushed 3D graphics to where they are today and was a pleasure living through the 80s and 90`s visiting the arcades and seeing what Am2 could deliver.  Then going back home and wishing one day we will get arcade PERFECT ports at  home :D 

 

Just noticed Shenmue 3 has shipped aswell, fingers crossed for delivery tomorrow.

Timestamped video of the award above.

Worth watching as it's presented to him by someone who posts on this very forum....

 

And for the bit after the presentation too! Thanks for sharing...

 

Just pondering over where to get this at the moment PC or PS4.... have the first two on Steam on the PC.
