The Gamescom trailer for Shenmue 3 has now been released and not everyone was happy about it. This is due to the game’s lack of facial animations.
Shenmue’s creator, Yu Suzuki, clarified in an interview with Game Watch Impress that he has yet to put the real facial animations in the game. He said:”Yes, I have not put facials [in] yet. I put [in] facial expressions up to a month ago, but I removed it“.
What we saw was a rough version of the game. There’s still time for him to fix things because Shenmue 3 is not out on the PC and PS4 until next year.
Fixing facial animations shouldn’t be too difficult to do in a year’s time. Capcom managed to fix several ugly faces in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite in the span of only a couple of weeks.
