Shenmue III’s PC system requirements have been revealed

Ys Net has officially published Shenmue 3’s PC system requirements, confirming that the game will release exclusively on Steam and Windows-based operating systems at launch. 

Shenmue 3 will release in 2019, with SEGA and Ys Net revealing no firm release date for the game’s PS4 and PC versions. The game was initially intended to release in 2018, though the game’s developers have since asked for more time to deliver a more polished experience. 

Remastered versions of Shenmue I and II are set to release later this year on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, giving gamers on modern platforms ample opportunity to play or replay the originals. 

The PC system requirements for Shenmue III are available below, revealing some hefty storage requirements, which estimate that the game will require 100GB of storage capacity. Thankfully, other aspects of the game don’t seem as demanding, as Ys Net appears to be willing to stick to the series’ original art style, which has limited their ability to push their visuals to cutting-edge levels in some regards.
