Shenmue Composer Dedicates New Song in Deceased Fan's Memory

"I hope this melody may be to his liking. R.I.P."

As development on Shenmue III continues, its composer Ryuji Iuchi released a new song (shown above) entitled "Winter Sunset," with the piece dedicated to a Shenmue fan who unfortunately passed away back in 2010 due to a medical condition the person suffered in his early twenties.

Rodger Swan, the fan the song is dedicated to, was an English teacher in Japan. During his stay in the country, Swan produced vlogs about his travels there. One such vlog detailed his experiences in Dobuita, the setting of the original Shenmue.

Along with the song, Iuchi posted a heartfelt, emotional message in a series of Tweets on his Twitter account. Below are the translated words of his message, courtesy of Phantom River Stone:


“When I was looking up this and that late at night, I learned that a fan of the game passed away from illness several years ago. I felt compelled to do something, and worked through to morning on a composition. I hope this melody may be to his liking. R.I.P.”


Tell us what you think of "Winter Sunset" with a comment below or on our Twitter/Facebook pages and on behalf of the RadioSEGA staff, condolences to Mr. Swan.
