Ys Net and 110 Industries haveactually produced a collaboration for the advancement of Shenmue 4 according to the newest report. Several months ago reports over a prospective cooperation inbetween the 2 business began, however this week is the veryfirst time a 110 Industries worker has commented on the matter and did so by including fuel to the fire.
How mostlikely is it we will see Shenmue 4?
110 Industries held a discussion at Tokyo Game Show at the end of2023 The veryfirst 5 minutes of that discussion were devoted to Shenmue developer Yu Suzuki. As no collaboration hadactually been revealed at that point, lotsof gamers were left questioning why this was. Skip ahead to this week and 110 Industries put up a post on Instagram promoting their upcoming title Wanted: Dead. A confident fan attempted to ask whether they would “hook up” with Suzuki to make Shenmue 4. As identified by GameRant, an confidential 110 Industries staffmember responded, “guess why he was at our TGS stream.”
While this is far from verification of a cooperation inbetween the 2 business, let alone the presence of Shenmue 4, it was enough to motivate fans to call for the videogame to be made. 110 Industries is now offering up a “no remark” technique to queries about Shenmue 4 (thanks ResetEra), however this isn’t a rejection either. For his part, Suzuki has currently stated he would love to make more videogames in the Shenmue universe and the videogame was pitched to publishers at the end of2020 It appears like one of those pitches might haveactually been effective. However, take this report with a pinch of salt upuntil we get verification.
