Shenmue 3 Doesn’t Have to Be Gorgeous, Story More Important, Says Yu Suzuki

Irrespective of how well it does, Shenmue 3 will forever be remembered as one of the fastest crowd-funded projects Kickstarter, and arguably one of the most successful.

However, despite such an amazing amount of success with its Kickstarter campaign, it seems that Shenmue 3 development will still have to be making sacrifices in certain technical aspects.

The man behind the much-loved series, Yu Suzuki, had a chance to talk to Eurogamer. In the lengthy interview, there was one excerpt of particular interest:

“The game itself doesn’t have to be gorgeous visually – a lot of the money these days goes into the graphics. If we perhaps compromise on the graphics and put more into the story, we can make a good game. The most important thing, to me, is that the game’s interesting, and that it’s something people want to play.”

Yu Suzuki’s observation is not inaccurate. Most modern games spend a lot of money on the graphical and visual design, but for the heavily story-oriented title like Shenmue 3, it’s not a surprise that the budget is being fueled into the central part of the game.

Shenmue 3 is likely to make technical and visual sacrifices to further enhance the story, which should fall absolutely fine with most Shenmue fans.

The game is expected to be released sometime in 2016 for PlayStation 4 and PC.
