Ryo's next trip?
« on: July 22, 2014, 10:26:30 PM »
I've just finished Shenmue 2 (yet again) and from Shenhua's house, there's hints of where the story could lead to. Luoyang in China is the obvious one in that it's linked in with past dynasties and empires (not to mention Shenhua's nostalgic feelings for the place and you can't really fault her "feelings" so far). But I think with the change of events and talk of dragons and phoenixes, I know this story is far bigger than Lan Di and Ryo's revenge. I think that the story will develop for a long time in various parts of China but, with pure speculation on my part, I'm convinced it will move on to other countries. Vietnam is close and could be a lovely setting for a chapter or 2, or possibly even back to Japan at some point? But I reckon this may become a bit of a world tour and I'm not convinced we've seen the end of characters like Nozomi and Tom, maybe not necessarily in Japan? Anyone got any theories?

I don't think we'll see Nozomi  or Tom again. Unless it's just for pure pointless fan service or whatever, but I doubt that would happen. Who knows if the story would move to other countries or not.  But I always felt like China was were the story would finish personally. There's nothing really connecting the story to other countries.

We are still yet to really get to Gulin, so obviously there is next. I cant see the neec to stay in rural environments, however suspect there will be more. Ialso suspect Shanghai will bea location visited. I honestly dont see the series leaving China, the story is afteall about Chinese Mythology, however I see it going back to Japan... I always felt that Ryo would have another loss that causes him to leave the revenge path, the loss of Nazomi, Fuk-San etc due to LanDi or others putting them in peral however this is really far fetched

According to the map at Gdc 2014 postmortem.
It will stay in china, got a feelin it will go back to japan, maybe at the end?, we all knew it will the story will stay in china.
Guilin, Louyang, Bailu village/ also called maio village was it?
According to leaked infomation images.
If u look on the map, yes looks like one location in shanghai, one also looks like in the middle of  the map, i believe it will also be located in north of china, Beijing, The great wall, and also Mungcun. ( they say to get answers u need to bk to the beginning. Mmmm.
