VIDEO - Shenmue 101: Meet the characters
Fans can brush up on your Shenmue knowledge as 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.
This newest video (below) focuses on the characters of Shenmue I & II. From Ryo himself to Lan Di, Corey introduces fans to Shenmues key characters: the mysterious Shenhua appearing in Ryos 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.
