Over 18 years since the release of Shenmue 2, Shenmue 3 is finally out. Developed by Ys Net and published by Deep Silver, Shenmue 3 continues the story of Ryo Hazuki as he travels to Guilin, China to hunt down Lan Di. However, for creator Yu Suzuki, the sequel marks a long-awaited destination.

In a new video, Suzuki talks about his development of the series, starting from the first Shenmue. We see concept art for the original design and how Suzuki wanted to create a role-playing game unlike any other. While Shenmue 1 and 2 weren’t the biggest commercial successes, the series achieved a strong cult status. From there, it’s a journey to the game’s reveal and eventual release.

Shenmue 3 is available for PC and PS4 – backers should have already received their copies by now. You can look forward to reviews pouring in later today. Until then, you can check out Suzuki’s “Thank You” message to fans here. Stay tuned for more details and updates in the meantime.
