Yeah, it's heavily implied that is the case. I don't think it'll go all Dragonball on us, but there's clearly some fantasy elements.

There must be some kind of mystical power to the Phoenix and Dragon mirrors... unless Lan Di is just an obsessive collector who hopes to get a complete set and then post a L@@K RARE Buy-It-Now listing on eBay at some outrageous price.

I'm guessing it has something to do with the cores of the mirrors. They've shown that they can be used as a map at the end of Shenmue 2, so I'm guessing if you use them together it'll lead you somewhere important.

Not directly related to Shenmue 3, but if any Shenmue fans wanted a possible Shenhua statue to go with Ryo and Lan Di:



First 4 Figures's Facebook group will be having a poll on Thursday regarding another statue.

I wonder if everyone will have to play and understand the story of the first two games in order to understand the third...

Probably. Even if they don't though, it's not like new players couldn't learn by wiki, youtube etc.

The new update felt a bit weak. It's great to see them talking about these topics, but it didn't really show or say much about Shenmue III.

I think it will be easy enough for new players to catch up on the story. Ideally they'd include some kind of recap like they do in the Yakuza series.

I'm hoping that's because they're holding back on any juicy reveals in order to have a significant presentation at E3... but not trying to get my hopes up too high at the same time. Either way they must be working quite intensely on the game at this time.
