He doesn't show the photo to Zhu in the game either - he doesn't find out it's Zhao Sunming in the photo until Master Feng tells him so in Shenmue III. Of course, we'd all pretty much worked out it was Sunming way back in the dayI dunno if this has been discussed before (sorry in advance if it has been brought up before), but I don't think ryo knows that the guy in the Bailu pic is sunming yet. This probably because he did not show the picture to yuanda zhu when they were in the hideout. what made me realise it is how ryo was like "this man standing next to my father...he might be....", which kinda shows he doesn't know who sunming is.View attachment 16799
it might be an insignificant change, but I'm really interested to know why yu decided to change it
Might be a consumer trends thing? Japan is famous/infamous for physical media holding on for a lot longer as the world transitioned to streaming.I wonder why the Shenmue anime soundtrack didn't get a physical release worldwide? Just doesn't make sense this is easy money.
