He’s appeared in, like, three scenes, but there’s no doubt Lan Di is one of gaming’s greatest villains. After ruthlessly murdering Iwao Hazuki in the opening scene of Shenmue, protagonist Ryo has been in search of revenge ever since. He’ll come one step closer in long-awaited sequel Shenmue III, and we know that the mysterious martial artist will put in an appearance.
And here’s how he’s looking in the new game:
There’s been some bad art released for Shenmue III, but the project does finally appear to be coming together, and this character render looks spot on to us. The chief of the Chi You Men is looking a little younger in this image, but he’s still more or less exactly as we’d envisage him. This screen gets bonus points for the intricately detailed background, which is lovely.
Lan Deez Nuts
@ShogunRok never again. please.
Yes, Lan Di looks more like himself than the rest of the cast so far.
@Optimusultimus I can only apologise
Shame they mentioned back when Kickstarting this that the story won't end in 3. Maybe that's changed, but I can't see a satisfying conclusion.
Maybe we can finally find those sailors.
@Knuckles-Fajita It was never going to end in 3 without being massively rushed!
@get2sammyb True. Makes me wonder when we get 4 then XD
Of course I'd like a wrap up to some of the plot here, then a final finish in 4. Avoid the KH3 thing of "WE NEED TO WRAP UP EVERYTHING OH CRAP!"
He looks spot on! Good job!
That's by far the best character render so far, wouldn't be out of place in a Yakuza game!
