I'm pretty late, but here's a dump of information related to this in an extremely unorganized manner:As @RyoHazuki84 mentioned, in Japanese her name is written as 莎花 - シェンファ (Shen-Fa).
If anything, I would actually guess that "Sha Hua" might be a more accurately 'Chinese' pronunciation. Although, I kind of hate to say that, because in that case 莎木 - シェンムー (Shen-mu) becomes 'Sha Mu.'
(Series about Sea World Orcas, confirmed!)
When you find Miao Village and walk around that you will be hailed as a god :)
Great work. I know there's a loading screen in there for Miao Village but I think it just gets stuck there IIRC.There are other places that cannot be visited normally.
I turned the game over in every direction for 4 months :)
I even tried to create bugs, exploits bugs hi hi hi
For example, the cave at the end is fully explorable by regularly adjusting the STEPS
Also can another person confirm if you can't transfer your US Shenmue 1 save to this version of Shenmue 2?I just checked with this build of II and you CAN'T use American Shenmue I saves with this build.
Edit: I can't believe I actually forgot to add the 't in can't. I'm sorry for the mistake
I just happen to read news on an unreleased Shenmue II US DC version has been released.
So this just confirms that Microsoft convinced Sega US not to release the game in the US but Sega Europe still released Shenmue II in Europe.
I don't think we ever did, did we? Unless they count this? I mean, they fixed it for the actual release, but did nobody want to tell the artist that Ryo is not Latino before they ran off these promo posters?You will see some really compelling marketing programs from them under the Sega brand for Shenmue 2 next year.
"Lad Di" is my favourite Shenmue character.
