Ys Net has released a new developer update video for Shenmue III that offers a look at the game’s facial animation system.
Presumably, the video below is in response to criticism regarding the lack of any sort of facial animation in the teaser trailer that was released for the game back in August. A large number of fans complained about the dead-eyed stares and lack of emotion on character’s faces.
Shortly before that teaser trailer was released, Ys Net announced that it had signed a publishing deal with Deep Silver that will see the company distribute the game on PlayStation 4 and PC both digitally and at retail.
In other Shenmue news, several retailers posted listings for a Shenmue 1 and 2 Pack on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, adding to previous rumors of a HD remasters for the original two games in the series.
Shenmue III is scheduled to launch in the second half of 2018 for PlayStation 4 and PC.
