Yu Suzuki confirms Shenmue 3 teaser trailer models are temporary

36584935131_c9f5fedc09_oYu Suzuki has confirmed, via an interview with Game Spark, that the Shenmue 3 teaser trailer models are mostly temporary.

““Shenhua, Ryo, and the other characters are mostly temporary. Shenhua still has to be fixed up a bit.” – Yu Suzuki, director and producer Shenmue 3

According to the Shenmue 3 executive producer Hideaki Morishita, regarding the lack of high quality models, “was unable to ready them in time for this trailer.”  He also explained that they put the teaser trailer together to celebrate their milestone of signing a publishing contract with Deep Silver, “While there is little excuse, there are parts that are still lacking or parts that are not sufficient.”

In a interview with Game Watch, Yu Suzuki also confirmed that facial animation was implemented a month ago but was temporarily removed. No answer to why

Gematsu translated some of the new Shenmue 3 reveals from Yu Suzuki’s Famitsu interview including talk about post game DLC, the return of the forklift and confirming that the game will be about 30 hours long.

    I knew those models and facial animations were only temporary. So many mean comments on both YouTube and GameFAQ’s stating this game is doomed for failure and all that nonsense. Yeah, I get it: KickStarters haven’t been getting good results with the mediocre Mighty No. 9, the switching of companies for Unsung Story (which I pledged for) and so on. I have so much faith in Yu Suzuki because he’s always out to make sure his games are the best that they can be and he’s been very passionate about getting Shenmue III out for well over a decade. I know that Shenmue III won’t finish the story, but I really hope this does well to where SEGA could fully fund Shenmue IV and we wouldn’t have to wait as long for the next game.

      See its always good to be patient, animation should look way better now.
      Did you want it to look like Yakuza or anything in mind?
