New Shenmue Easter Egg Discovered: Nozomi Jumps into Action!

Sunday, August 18th, 2019

A fascinating new discovery has been made in the original Shenmue – a certain set of conditions can trigger a fight scene where Nozomi joins Ryo in the action.

According to the fine folk at PhatomRiverStone.com, this scene can be triggered by visiting Sakuragaoka park before 7pm on a sunny or snowy day after Ryo’s brawl at the Heartbeats Bar. However, you must make your visit after the Heartbeats Bar brawl and before Ryo visits the tattoo parlor, which is the next location in Ryo’s quest.

Click the below embed to see what happens in the fight at Sakuragaoka park once the conditions have been successfully met:

Shenmue III Delayed to 2nd Half of 2018

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

shenmue3

The inevitable Shenmue III delay has arrived! Shenmue III will now release in the 2nd half of 2018.

It had previously been slated for a December 2017 release but as was previously revealed, Shenmue III was not scheduled for an appearance at this year’s E3 which put a 2017 release into doubt.

Yu Suzuki announced the delay himself in the latest Kickstarter update and has said, “By utilising new technologies, we have been able to discover new possibilities and expressions. In many ways, the game has become bigger and more beautiful than I initially expected. We do, however, need more time to deliver the game to you.”

Shenmue III will not be published by SEGA but instead by Sony. The game will eventually launch on PC and PS4.
