New character shown, no E3 plans for Shenmue 3
« on: May 29, 2017, 06:58:55 PM »

Ys Net has released a new update on the Shenmue 3 project via Kickstarter and the game's official website.

It includes a video giving us our first look at a new character from the highly anticipated sequel, as the 3D model is put through its paces to test for imperfections.

With so much work going into every detail of the game, the update also confirms that resources aren't being set aside for an E3 presentation.

As much as we'd all like to be blown away by a big new trailer - just as an exclusive group of backers were in September last year, when they were shown footage already months old at the time yet leaps and bounds ahead of anything yet revealed in public - we are perfectly content for Yu Suzuki and his crew to maintain their trademark secrecy until nearer the game's release, when its impact will be fresh in gamers' minds come launch day. For now, the time required to prepare and polish a trailer for mainstream consumption is best spent perfecting the game itself.

As fans our attention at E3 can now focus entirely on Sega, who must seize the moment to announce remasters of Shenmue 1 & 2. The perfect appetizer for fans, and even moreso for newcomers to the series, the sooner these original chapters are available to buy on modern systems the better.

To remind Sega of this, please join in the #SaveShenmueHD Tweetathon this Saturday, June 3rd. See the front page for full campaign details, including a method to pre-load an AutoTweet for easy participation on the day!
