Shenmue III release date announced – New Trailer

Shenmue fans have been waiting for Shenmue III for quite some time, with the original games stemming from the SEGA Dreamcast era, a very different time for the console market. 

At Gamescom 2018, Deep Silver and Ys confirmed that Shenmue 3 will release on both PS4 and PC on August 27th 2019, which means that fans of the series will only need to wait for one year to see the next entry in the iconic series.  

This announcement coincides with the PC, Xbox One and PS4 releases of Shenmue I and II, which will become available to play on supported platforms later today. Sadly, these remastered editions remain locked to 30FPS like their original counterparts, though support for higher resolutions and 16:9 aspect ratios will significantly improve the visuals of this classic Xbox/Dreamcast series. 

Below is Shenmue’s III’s new “The Prophecy trailer. 

     Only a few games become legendary. This is the story of one of them…

Shenmue III sees the continuation of the epic story-driven saga. The player controls teenage martial artist Ryo Hazuki as he investigates his father’s murder.

Players must explore the game’s open world, searching for clues, examining objects and talking to non-player characters for information, taking them further into enemy territory, deeper into mystery, and even closer to their destiny.
