To the Sea and the Continent Beyond

Hello Everyone! 

The power of Shenmue’s music was undoubtedly one of the big reasons that made the Shenmue series such a memorable experience. One of men responsible for this great achievement, is Ryuji Iuchi. 

The composer of “Shenhua’s Theme,” Iuchi-san has pulled at our heart strings with his songs, actually putting us there, in the world of Shenmue. And now he is back for Shenmue 3 to help take us into that world once again. 

Let’s give a big standing ovation for Ryuji Iuchi:

Thank you for all of the memories, Iuchi-san!  We look forward to all of the new songs, and the memories we will make with them in Shenmue 3. 

To get a further listen of Ryuji Iuchi’s body of work, please visit his website at While most of the site is in Japanese, samples of his music are here at this link, so please have a listen!
