After a massive Kickstarter campaign that began in 2015 and raised $6.3 million dollars from nearly 70,000 backers, the first teaser trailer from the hotly anticipated Shenmue III was unveiled Monday.
Directed by Yu Suzuki, the long-awaited third installment in the Shenmue series is set to resume the story of teenage martial artist Ryo Hazuki as he journeys to the mountains of Gullin, China, continuing his quest to find his father’s killer. Built using Unreal Engine 4, the teaser showcases “a small slice of an in-development build of the game [and] delivers small peeks in new [looks] of main characters, new characters, and feels of [Shenmue’s] world.”
Published by Deep Silver (Risen series, Saints Row IV, Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse), Shenmue III is slated for release in Q3/Q4 2018 on PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows. Additional information and pre-order links are available at Shenmue III‘s official website.
