SEGA is currently working with Corey Marshall, the English-version voice actor of Ryo Hazuki, to create a series of videos exploring the basics of the Shenmue saga. After the first video focused on Ryo's quest to avenge his father, SEGA has now released the second video of this series that delves deeper into the characters themselves.
From Ryo himself to Lan Di, Corey introduces us to Shenmue's key characters: the mysterious Shenhua appearing in Ryo's dreams, Ren the Heavens gang leader, and many more friends, foes, and those whom Ryo would be wise to keep an eye on. Beyond the key characters that Ryo encounters, there are hundreds of NPCs awaiting you in the world of Shenmue: love interests, enemies, neighbours and merchants... and of course, a cat.
Shenmue I & II release on the 21st of August on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Both games are available to pre-order digitally on PSN, Xbox Marketplace and Steam with a 10% discount ahead of its launch on August 21. The physical edition is available to pre-order from US and EMEA retailers and comes complete with a double-sided poster starring fan-favourite characters from the hit saga as well as reversible cover art featuring original artwork.
