Shenmue III progress update shows QTE testing

Quality Tea Environment

Remember “QTE Expert” from the You Arcade in Shenmue? You did play Shenmue didn’t you? Not only did the game basically invent and focus on QTE’s, but it even had a mini-game in the arcade that was about as literal a QTE as you can get, pressing whatever button flashes on screen over a black background.

That very mini-game is shown off in QTE test footage in the latest monthly update for the long-awaited sequel (but not necessarily final game) in the Shenmue series. I don’t know if sticking to the old format is what the series needs, but hey that freedom is what crowdfunding is for right?
