PlayStation’s Director of Third Party Production, Gio Corsi, has shared this photo on Twitter of himself and Adam Boyes (Vice President of Publisher & Developer Relations) catching up with Yu Suzuki and the Shenmue III team at the end of their Japanese trip.
“Amazing last dinner in Tokyo with @yu_suzuki_jp @amboyes #savedshenmue”
With the surprise now out of the bag since June, all involved will be relieved that they no longer have to meet behind thick closed doors, going to great lengths to avoid the ever present glare of social media.
Thanks again to Adam and Gio for heeding the focused demands of Shenmue fans and supporting the production and marketing of the impossible sequel. Without the use of their stage at E3, no game could have broken as many Kickstarter records as Shenmue III did.
