Masaya Matsukaze Confirmed & Monaco Meeting Upgrade

Greeting Shenmue Allied Forces!  

We have been getting a lot of questions asking if Masaya Matsukaze will be the Japanese voice of Ryo for Shenmue 3. Yes, it is official, Mr. Matsukaze will be reprising his role as the voice of Ryo!


Mr Matsukaze

Yu-san said Masaya-san and Corey-san were the best fit for the respective Japanese/English voice of Ryo, and couldn’t imagine any different. Big cheers to that!


Monaco Dinner Reward Gets a Special Upgrade

Yu-san has upped the ante for the Monaco Dinner Reward. The location will now be slightly moved to the nearby town of Eze, famous for its history and old world beauty. There, you will actually work with Yu-san to plan a part of Shenmue 3. After the planning session, enjoy a dinner party with Yu-san among this picturesque world of times past.
