Ys Net has shared new images of Shenmue 3, as they announced a presentation for the game to be held in Monaco.
Yu Suzuki himself will be in Monaco to present Shenmue 3 in MAGIC, or the Monaco Anime Game International Conference. Suzuki will also be showing off more screenshots of the game. There aren’t many new details for now, but maybe Yu will reveal more about the story, character, and other elements in this upcoming presentation.
Shenmue 3 is planned for release on December 2017 on PC and PlayStation 4. The project has had a rollercoaster of a journey, with the Kickstarter literally reviving what seemed then to be a completely abandoned game after Sega lost the US trademark.
The Kickstarter went on to be one of the most successful in history, reaching its base goal in mere hours. However, there was confusion in Sony’s role in the production of the game, and this would grow to become an issue until the crowdfund ended. Yu Suzuki had to speak out to clear the air mere days after the announcement.
The Shenmue 3 Kickstarter ended at $ 6 million, and Ys Net launched a SlackerBacker campaign soon thereafter. Since then, Ys Net have been giving out sparse, but substantial updates on production, which you can read below:
