The first trailer for Shenmue 3 was released this week and fans spoke out about the trailer for its stiff and expressionless character models.
Shenmue 3 director Yu Suzuki stated in an interview with Game Spark (the interview was later translated by Gematsu) that the character models in the trailer are placeholders. In the same interview Shenmue 3 producer Hideaki Morishita assured fans that their developers have higher quality models which are currently in development. He went on to say that these models were not ready in time for the games trailer.
