Shenmue Is Remastered Understanding
Shenmue Is Remastered Understanding. After the initial hype, things related to Kickstarter for Shenmue 3 began to be more suspicious than they should be. What exactly is the role of Sony? Why ask for $ 2 million if the budget is bigger? Yu Suzuki, a series creator, decided to come clean about the concerted funding campaign.
Suzuki posted an update in the page itself of Shenmue 3 on Kickstarter, apologizing for not having spoken openly from the beginning, and explaining where the money goes, the role of Sony, and other things. “I apologize for not being more outspoken in this area, and I would like to take this opportunity to help clarify the situation,” said the Director.
During last year’s E3, the Kickstarter project to the creation of Shenmue III was released and surpassed its goal of 2 million in a matter of hours, surpassing the total of 6 million raised for the project. After this stunning success, a lot of people started asking for the first two games of the remastering series, first released exclusively for the Dreamcast and the second leaving for the Dreamcast and the first Xbox. And now Sega revealed that he also wants to make these remastering.
Sega revealed to be investigating a way to start working on these, as there are some remastering issues involved with that, as Dan Sheridan, Community Manager of Sega: “of course we would love to release them tomorrow.
Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as porting games to the current platforms, where we would have to ensure that any HD was remastering to honor the quality of the original titles. And with games like Shenmue 1 and so immersive two there are other complications with the licensed that were included in the original games. That said, we’d love to do this, and we are investigating how to make that happen. ”
The first two games of the series contained various licensed items and advertisements, such as the Timex watches and handbags Case Logic, as well as vending machines for Coca-Cola and partnerships with Toho, Toshiba EMI, and the ASCII Corporation. Because of this, before the remastering done, Sega should ensure that there will be no problem with those brands, both to reuse them or remove them from the remastering. But at least Sega has shown that you want the remastering to happen. Meanwhile, Shenmue III follows in production, scheduled for release in December 2017, with versions for PS4 and PC.
