Shenmue III trailer offers first glimpse of the long awaited sequel

A new trailer for the third entry in the cult hit series has been released, showing some of the current build of the game.

The Facts

The trailer began streaming on Aug. 21, showing bits and pieces of the upcoming game’s combat and story. Main characters Ryo Hazuki encounters individuals skilled in martial arts, while also exploring the game’s setting with Ling Shenhua.

“Shenmue III” currently has a release window in the second half of 2018 for PS4 and PC.

Author’s Take

This trailer is a special kind of terrible, with character models so vacant and lifeless they would put antique dolls to shame. Even if it is only an early build of the game, creator Yu Suzuki and developer Ys Net have a lot more work that needs to be done on this title.
