New screens






[Event starts at 9:25AM CET/8:25AM GMT/3:25AM EST/00:25 PST]

Some of you might recall it being mentioned sometime last year that Shenmue III would be shown at production partner Shibuya Productions' event, MAGIC, based in Monaco. It'll be the first time the press and public have gotten an extensive look at Shenmue III since last year's barn-storming E3 reveal and triple record-breaking Kickstarter. (Coincidentally you can still back the project via PayPal).

Shenmue III producer, Shibuya Productions President, and MAGIC Monaco founder Cedric Biscay has said we can expect a work-in-progress teaser, likely in the form of video, screenshots, and information from Yu Suzuki himself during the hour and five minute Shenmue III presentation.

Unfortunately the event will not be streamed.

However, three new prototype screenshots were shown off last month at a MAGIC Monaco press conference in Paris, and were made publicly available within an hour of the event ending. Those in attendance also captured off-screen pictures and video, so we'll likely see a repeat of that via Twitter. I'll be adding images and video to the OP as they come in, and then replacing them with direct-feed when available.

So what exactly is going to be shown? That's a mystery to everybody besides those actively involved in the game. My money would be on seeing more of Bailu Village, some updated Ryo and Shenhua models, and test videos for gameplay elements. I guess we'll all find out in 6 hours.

Can't wait!
Also there is interviews with other developers over the course of the conference, such as Dontnod, the creators of Life is Strange.

Full programme here

So surreal just thinking we are having conferences with yu Suzuki talking about and presenting on a real Shenmue 3.

It just boggles my little heart.

Just keeping people informed!

Anyway, good morning everybody. The event should be starting right about now. I've got some breakfast and green tea ready, so I'm settling in to monitor as many information sources as I can find over the next hour.

Oh wow, I didn't even realise what they were showing in the screens was Shenhua's house until now.

Love the look of the interior! Seems to be living up to the detail and lived-in personality of the original games. The table is very distinctive and establishes a sense of setting.

After the pics accompanying the reveal its such a relief to see they are definitely back on track as far as art direction goes.
Looks better than I had expected.

They just need to drop that ugly papyrus already

It's actually happening! I still can't believe it. I don't even care if this is high budget or low budget game. The technical level of modern adventure games like Life is Strange, Tell Tale games and Dreamfall is fine by me. This is looking to at least match the first two for now.
