Shenmue III Gets Much Needed Skip Conversation Option And Other Fixes

Talking to villagers in Shenmue III can be a time consuming and sometimes confusing process. In patch 1.04, developer Ys Net is taking some of the bite out of these talks. Players can now skip the initial conversation with a villager. If you want to speed things up or talk to someone for a second time, you don't have to hear about the goods they are selling or how their day is going. With the skip option, Ryo cuts to the chase and asks his question.

The patch, which is out today for PlayStation 4 and PC, also addresses subtitle typos, minigame bugs, environmental collision, and skill balancing.

In addition to cleaning up the game, Ys Net released the Battle Rally DLC, which sees Ryo Hazuki, Wei Zhen, and Ren Wuying competing as they race along a course. If you place in first, you are rewarded with items. To start the DLC, you will first have to reach Niaowu in the core game. The DLC retails for 7.99.

MLB The Show 20 Gameplay Trailer Slides In

Click here to watch embedded media MLB the Show 20's first gameplay trailer has just dropped, giving teases of some of what's to come when the game releases for PS4 on March 17.

Apart from some new legends like John Franco, David Ortiz, and Mariano Rivera, the trailer also shows off some personality with team celebrations and Juan Soto's “Soto Shuffle.”

In terms of gameplay, the trailer appears to reveal real-time hitting and fielding icons related to specific attributes such as Power Left and Fielding, as well as a red ring around balls dropping into the outfield as players try to dive for and catch them.

Other game elements coming in the livestreams, some o..
