Poll Result: Patrons' Choice Topic for January 2020

Every month Phantom River Stone holds a poll among our patrons to choose a topic for the blog in the coming month. After tallying the votes (including accumulated votes from previous months), the clear winning topic for January is...

"Yu Suzuki's Research Trip to China 1994: Part Five"

In 1994 Yu Suzuki spent two weeks in China gathering material for his upcoming Virtua Fighter II game, and his findings also greatly influenced his creation of Shenmue.
  • In Part One, we translated blog posts about the trip by Kazunari Uchida, the person who accompanied Yu Suzuki.
  • In Part Two, we translated Yu Suzuki's own comments about his trip, and how his findings would be useful for the development of the Virtua Fighter series.
  • Part Three was the first of a number of "diary" style articles documenting the China trip, again written by Kazunari Uchida, which were published in 1994 as a series in the Japanese Beep! MegaDrive Magazine.
  • Part Four is the journal entry for Day One: Beijing (coming soon).
In Part Five, we will translate the journal entry for Yu Suzuki's journey through China from Beijing down to Shaolin Temple in Henan province. (He takes particular interest in a carving of a Dragon and Phoenix that he discovers on the way...)
