Shenmue 4: soon a new adventure for Ryo?




"He shall appear from a far Eastern land across the sea. A young man who has yet to know his potential. This potential is a power that can either destroy him, or realize his will. His courage shall determine his fate. The path he must traverse, fraught with adversity, I await whilst praying. For this destiny predetermined since ancient times... A pitch, black night unfolds with the morning star as its only light. And thus the saga, begins..."

This first chapter of Shenmue kicks off Yu Suzuki's cinematic Dreamcast tour-de-force, an exploration-heavy adventure that has players immerse themselves in Yokosuka, Japan. Players slip into the role of a young martial artist named Ryo Hazuki, who is on the trail of his father's killer. On the way, players must talk with hundreds of characters, engage in martial arts battles, and marvel at the realistic depiction of the Japanese coastal town.

Shenmue 4: soon a new adventure for Ryo?

Despite the crazy expectations of the community, we must admit that Shenmue 3 has not lived up to all its promises. However, a fourth opus could well see the light of day in the more or less near future.

It was after 18 long years of absence that Ryo Hazuki made his big comeback in Shenmue 3 in November 2019. Unfortunately, the game had received a mixed reception because of its aging mechanics and its stagnant story. Thus, worshipers of the license imagined by Yu Suzuki hope for an announcement of Shenmue 4 even if the viability of the project remains uncertain to this day.

A real clue or just speculation?

The hallway noise comes from a response posted on the 110 Industries Instagram account. This company, which brings together around 150 video game professionals around the world, is currently working on a game called Wanted: Dead . And it is precisely under a post concerning this title that an Internet user suggested to 110 Industries to associate with Yu Suzuki in order to give birth to Shenmue 4 . The company replied with the following sentence: "  Guess why he (Suzuki) was present on our stream at TGS  ".

Thus, 110 Industries seems to imply that the Japanese creator came to talk to them about Shenmue 4 during the last Tokyo Game Show to date. Of course, this can be a clumsy answer or just a joke. Recently, Cédric Biscay, the producer of the third opus, explained that several publishers had been approached to develop a sequel. We do not know if these discussions were fruitful.
