With Shenmue 3 nowhere in the near future what is Ryo Hazuki doing with his free time? Did he just stumble into a cameo role in Success’ Yakuza beat em up, Yajuu Keiji (Beast Detective)? As one shrewd Insert Credit forum member points out a story screenshot has a character who looks like the spitting image of Ryo Hazuki. Since Sega owns the rights to Ryo Hazuki it can’t be him. The unnamed background character could just be a long lost twin brother with an identical outfit or a freak coincidence. Unless an art designer steps forward we’ll never know for sure. Nevertheless, this is an interesting find!
