    >Shenmue III will NOT be the last Shenmue and won???t be the end of the
    story around Ryo Hazuki and the murderer of his father, Lan Di

    Oh for fuck’s sake, it took near 15 years to and the rise of KS to finally make this 3rd game and Zuzuki won’t finish the story? Jesus, it’s like he wants people to never get closure.

      Well Shenmue was never meant to end after the third game ????

      I think 5 or 7 were planned once #2042 will be the final year for Lan Di!

        I know Shenmue was supposed to be longer than 3 entries, but come on! at this point it’s asking a little too much to keep that original design based on faith alone.

        • R.Hoffmann

          Who knows, maybe everything comes together now and we might experience the whole story as it was once planned. I rather wait another 10 years to finally defeat Lan Di instead of doing that in a game that tries to have all left chapters in it already but is missing the pacing of the first two
