Yu Suzuki discusses storytelling in the latest Kickstarter update

Every month, Shenmue fans wait in eager anticipation for the latest piece of info on Shenmue III. In the latest Kickstarter update, we get some insight into Yu Suzuki’s thoughts on storytelling. In the video, he discusses the topic of themes and how film and video games require more than one theme in order to keep the audience interested. 

Check out the video above and let us know what you think in the comments below!

    As a Shenmue fan and backer I honestly do not look forward to the monthly updates. They’re often have little to no substance and don’t ever reveal anything new or concrete about the game.

    In this month’s case Yu talks a little about story, but realistically we should be looooong past this sort of content in terms of where the game should hypothetically be in development. We get the looped animation in the background to confirm that there is theoretically a game being made, but that’s it.

      Yeah, and it looks to be the same animation we saw to convince people to get on board with the Kickstarter over a year ago! Maybe they don’t want to give too much away but given the angle this was shot at it could have served to have some rolling demo play of someone we haven’t seen before, cause all the fans to speculate and get excited a bit more over something.

    I was thinking the same thing Sean. This is not an update, but just his philosophy on story design. There is no way this game is coming out this December. If that was the case, we would have seen a lot of gameplay by now. Hey, at least we’re getting a Shenmue 3. Just not till probably a couple more years.
