In other Shenmue 3 news, Suzuki recently spoke with several Chinese outlets about his upcoming game. According to website Sohu.com, several major advances have been made in development recently. This information was translated by Google, so there may be some errors. Sohu notes that in 2017, Suzuki claimed Shenmue 3 would feature 30 percent original ideas, with the remaining 70 percent focusing on returning features and mechanics. As of now, that figure has changed to a more even 50-50 split between new concepts and ideas from previous games.

Additionally, it was revealed that combat from the first two Shenmue games was a simplified modification of Suzuki's popular Virtua Fighter game. There has been a large focus on updating combat for Shenmue 3, so the old code is out and an entirely new combat system has been built from the ground up. That said, Suzuki's desire to accurately represent martial arts remains, so don't expect this to become Mortal Kombat .

It was also confirmed that most of the fan-favorite minigames and side activities are returning for Shenmue 3. This includes forklifts and quick-time events. Even more activities are said to be joining these fan favorites as well.
