As the trailer opens, our hero Ryo Hazuki is wanting a bit worse for put on, having apparently simply misplaced a combat within the idyllic nation hamlet talked about above. Ryo’s mysterious companion Shenhua Ling tends to him, however they’re interrupted by a big, offended, yelling man.
Asking round city, Ryo learns that the thugs had been trying to find the Phoenix Mirror, which you’ll keep in mind from earlier Shenmue games. This appears to set the stage for the journey, and Ryo seeks out an outdated grasp, who he finds boozing it up out within the woods.
That’s when the coaching montage half begins. You can watch the entire thing beneath.
Honestly, all of the characters who aren’t named Ryo or Shenhua look a giant lumpy and caricaturish, virtually as in the event that they’d been modeled by Jim Henson’s studio throughout his darkish 1980s interval.
