Lakshya Digital was recently announced as an outsourcing partner with YsNet for the creation of NPCs in Shenmue III. (As you might recall, Yu Suzuki mentioned that Deep Silver's additional funding was going to enable him to increase the number of NPCs in Choubu from 50-60 to 200.) The usual sloppy reporting and trolling has accompanied this announcement, so here are a few facts about Lakshya Digital. They're headquartered in Gurgaon, New Delhi, India and have offices in San Diego and Seattle.

Here is a list of games they've contributed assets to:

Not a bad resume, I assume they are sort of an asset farm then?

New Shenmue III images have been released today at the 2018 Magic Monaco Pre-Conference. Hopefully we'll see some gameplay footage at the conference next month!

The character models are looking pretty good. We've come a long way from that early E3 2016 teaser.
