Shenmue 3 is, in fact, happening. Against all odds, the game is actually going to release. With the title having spent so long in limbo, and with it ultimately having been a crowdfunded game via Kickstarter, it does make sense that the developers are keen to show us the game at each stage of development, if only to keep us assured that the game is indeed going to come, for real this time.
The latest of these updates was offered to Kickstarter backers for the game over the weekend, in the form of a new batch of screenshots, as well as a new video- the game looks gorgeous in all of these, and it is clear that, even if Shenmue 3 lacks the massive budget that went into the first two games, the sheer talent that went into them via Suzuki remains.
You can check out these new screenshots for yourself below, as well as the video, which we have courtesy of Shenmue Dojo.
