Shenmue III will officially launch on August 27th, 2019, developer Ys Net revealed at Gamescom.
The game was originally given a 2017 release window, before being pushed back to the second half of 2018, and then pushed back again to 2019. Hopefully, the developer will be able to hit this release date.
“Shenmue III sees the continuation of the epic story-driven saga. The player controls teenage martial artist Ryo Hazuki as he investigates his father’s murder,” the game’s description reads. “Players must explore the game’s open world, searching for clues, examining objects and talking to non-player characters for information, taking them further into enemy territory, deeper into mystery, and even closer to their destiny.”
Ys Net also released a new trailer for the game, which can be found below:
Shenmue III is in development for PlayStation 4 and PC.
