SEGA has teamed up with Corey Marshall, the English-version voice actor of Ryo Hazuki, for a series of videos exploring the world of the Shenmue. Last week, its first episode detailed the storyline of Shenmue I & II and Ryo’s quest to avenge his father. Today, they are delving 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.
New players will be able to meet all the fascinating characters in Shenmue I & II when it re-releases this August 21st!
