      @Tommy Sasaki: "All elements in the following screen shots are still in testing. Objects are being used as place holders, like the men in black suits, and Ryo is also an older model. Backgrounds and buildings are also still in the development stage and will see reworking."

      Just a very early conceptual proof of concept. They don't claim that it's "part of the Shenmue environments." 3 months, man. 3 months. Be patient. They have virtually no assets built yet.

      3 months in and i still can't believe this. Glad to hear that the studio is pump to continue working

    10. Tommy Sasaki on

      The background for in the first pic is a tech demo environment for UE4. Why are you using this and stating it to be part of the Shenmue environments?
      Here's proof

      Very good work!! Ryo has now face proper , although we know Ryo 's face is a little more angry and sharp .

      It looks so good! I mean for being this earlier I am kind of blown away you are even to this early testing phase on a game as complex as this. The final product will only look better from here and that is mind blowing considering how good this looks already! Great job Yu and team, so proud to have supported this game! :D

      @Jason - Huh? The game is clearly not gunna have the face from the DC era ... Its a more realistic version of Ryo ... I think its looking pretty good for an early model...

    41. DamnCatOnMyDesk

      Hooray! We're at the white box testing phase! XD

    42. Riccardo Trillocco on
