Shenmue Dojo & Team Yu went to MAGIC Monaco 2016 to interview Yu Suzuki about Shenmue III.

Snippet from the ShenmueDojo
When we last played as Ryo Hazuki in the Shenmue saga, he was on a mission of discovery in a foreign land, in pursuit of the man who had altered the course of his life in ways that were both surprising yet guided by fate.
And so it was that two representatives of Shenmue Dojo and Team Yu found ourselves crossing borders and tripping over coincidence after coincidence on our way to meet series creator Yu Suzuki, for his first ever interview with the English-speaking fan community.
Like our destination of Monaco, the road to Shenmue III has been mountainous. But through a uniquely synchronized sequence of events, involving an organized fan base, the rise of Kickstarter, Sony’s third party productions team, and private investors led by Shibuya Productions, a tunnel was finally carved through the impenetrable landscape.
With the impossible sequel now in development, Shibuya Productions would play host to exclusive preview footage at MAGIC Monaco, its annual conference event celebrating video games, anime, manga, and all around fandom. The unseen material went down a storm – appropriately, as one of the features demonstrated was the series’ famed dynamic weather system.
In preparation for our interview – for which we owe the veterans at ShenmueMaster.fr a debt of gratitude – we had readied a long list of questions to choose from on the day. If time were no object, one of them would have made reference to a question Suzuki answered in fun last July, during his debut in the monthly Shenmue Tweetathon.
