I just realized that Shenmue 3 is out next month, and I'm pretty excited about it. Based on the available demo, this seems very much like the past Shenmue games of the past, but with some quality-of-life improvements. I know the Yakuza series is basically a much-improved version of Shenmue. While I do enjoy their brand of weirdness, Shenmue has its brand of oddity in design and delivery that I think is undeniably charming (especially for how much of an idiot Hazuki is). But I'm also excited for the release because I'm hoping this may spark interest with the Beast Coast to do an Endurance Run with the second chapter, or something similar, as the original Shenmue endurance run is some of the best entertainment on this site (IMO).
Anyone here also looking forward to Shenmue 3, or hoping GBE will revisit the Shenmue series in a similar fashion to an endurance run?
Here is a no-commentary playthrough of the demo if you're interested in checking out.
