We are taking our story eighteen years ago when Shenmue 2 was the last game from the series. Until this moment, nothing new appeared for the fans of the game, but things are going to change. Yu Suzuki, the director of the game and his team, is bringing to life the next game, Shenmue 3, in 2019. It appears that number 3 will continue the story of its predecessor, the story about a martial artist named Ryo Hazuki. The teenager is searching for the murderer of his father in China of the ’80s.
All You Need to Know about Shenmue 3
Deep Silver and Yu Suzuki announced the release date of the game somewhere in 2018. At that time, they announced 27 August 2019. This final date was postponed from 2017 to 2018, and after that to August 2019. But, don’t you worry, because finally, finally, the game will be released on 19 November 2019 on PC and PS4. Regarding the game, Shenmue 3 will be an open-world of adventures and action, and the theme of the game will be Ryo Hazuki’s redemption. Thanks to the new improvements to the game, we will have areas to search and explore.
However, the trailers of the game show us the original characters and the new ones. Shenmue 3 is not only about the quest itself. In the game, you can do other little actions like fishing, driving, open things, and many more. We will still have the conversations from the previous games, the fighting action, and the choices. When it comes to decisions, you will see that the character is an outsider, so you will have the quest to earn people’s trust along the way.
Finally, the creator of the series Shenmue is also saying that Ryo Hazuki’s story doesn’t end with Shenmue 3. They are covering until now only 40% of the story and planning to go until 2081 with Shenmue 7. Even this one will cover only 80% of the game. We have to live long enough to see this game to an end.
