Ys Net have unveiled a new gameplay trailer for Shenmue 3, the highly-anticipated follow-up to the cult-classic series. Check it out below and marvel at Ryo’s martial arts prowess. However, perhaps more surprising is that several months before release, Ys Net has announced that the PC version will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store.

Over on Kickstarter, the development team said, “Development for Shenmue 3 has been moving forward using Unreal Engine and the support we have received from Epic has been excellent. But most importantly, in looking for the most enjoyable experience on PC, it was decided together with Deep Silver after much discussion that the Epic Games Store would be the best distribution platform option.”

This isn’t the first time that a crowd-funded title has suddenly shifted from Steam to the Epic Games Store – the same thing happened to Phoenix Point recently. Suffice it to say, the comments on the Kickstarter post for Shenmue 3 are not positive. We’ll see how this pans out for the game in the long run.

Shenmue 3 is still coming to the PlayStation 4 as well and was slated to arrive in August. However, it’s since been delayed to November 19th. More updates and announcements will be coming at the PC Gaming Show 2019, so stay tuned.
