by sshen1127 » Sun Nov 22, 2015 3:05 pm
After the press conference in shanghai. I was able to get a little more information about the game from Yu during our meal time.
After I got home. I re-watch the conference and I was able to come up with some my own speculation. Let’s get sweaty.
I made 2 pictures. The first picture is each location of the entire 11 chapter. The second picture is the flow of the entire story line.
From the 2 pictures here is the information I get.
Shenmue chapter break down.
3.Chapter 3 and 4 is (Su Zhou and shanghai) not sure which one come first.
4.Chapter 5 and 6 is ( Guilin)
5.Chapter 7 ( Luoyang )
6.Chapter 8 Cang Zhou Miao village
7.Chapter 9 Xi An
8.Chapter 10 Bei Jin
9.Chapter 11 is Lan Lou ( XinJiang )
3 and 4 was cut which include shu Zhou and shanghai
The last chapter the final battle takes place in ancient city (Lou Lan)
Here is the detail
First. I got all the location and the name of the city from the map of the second picture. Which chapter 3 and 4 is Suzhou and shanghai. And during the meal with Yu. I heard with my own ear that Shenmue 3 will be the story of Shenmue 5 and 6. Therefore 3 and 4 is being cut at this point.
There is a couple of detail worth mentioning here. The Niao Sun character in chapter 6 also appears in chapter 7 which is Luo yan. So Niao Sun follow Ryo to Luo yong ? Is to kill Ryo or help him? Also in chapter 10 the person ryo holds (is it landi or ziming? or someone else) if its LanDi does it mean Ryo defected him and forgive him in the end? Did Ryo reach a new ground of moral conscience? And what happen before that?
Finally I am most curious part of the story is the last chapter. The story takes place in Lou Lan. Note (the Chinese words on the map is Lou Lan not xinjiang) so the story must have a connection with the ancient city of ( LouLan). The ancient city of Lou Lan use to be the ruler for the land of Xing Jiang (it uses to be a country with rich culture and power) but suddenly disappears overnight. Similar like Maya Civilization. It becomes a historical myth.
So if the final battle is taken place there. Is there any connection between the two?

Finally there is one last detail I would like to share with everyone. During meal time Yu mention he will visitor shanghai and Suzhou, Wuxi, and Xiamen. Notice he mention shanghai and Suzhou the location of the two chapter that is cut from the game. Does that mean he is location scouting these two place? Will he add these 2 missing chapter in Shenmue 4? Will Shenmue 4 be chapter 3 and 4 (sshen1127 I personally don’t think so) we don’t know. But the most important part I think is still the budget. We need to keep support the game that is only way we can get more content from it. One last thing. During the meal time Yu mention in the future he may creator a brand new fighting game. What is that fighting game? I think it might be Shenmue character base fighting game. I believe after all of this set and done. Shenmue will no doubt become a legend of a game!sshen1127 has received 7 thanks from: johnvivant, LucBu, Mr357, NeoShredder, Shenhua-Nani?, Switch, Yokosuka
