Ys Net’s Shenmue 3 finally has a concrete release date. The long-awaited epic sequel will be out on August 27th, 2019 for PS4 and PC. Though he couldn’t attend in person, Shenmue series creator Yu Suzuki had a pre-recorded message for those attending Gamescom 2018, as was promised earlier. This was followed by new gameplay footage featuring Ryo Hazuki as he continues his journey.

Taking place immediately after the second game, Shenmue 3 sees Hazuki travelling to Guilin in China, where he meets Ling Shenhua, who’s been appearing in our protagonist’s dreams. Ryo and Ling travel together, fulfilling her village’s legend en route to the fateful encounter with Lan Di. A new antagonist, Niao Sun, will also be introduced.

Running on Unreal Engine 4, Shenmue 3 was first announced at Sony’s E3 2015 conference and subsequently funded on Kickstarter. The game has seen its share of delays, but finally seems to be on track for release. We wouldn’t be surprised if it was delayed again in the future (though we hope it doesn’t), but it’s good to see Suzuki and his team’s efforts paying dividends.
