During the PC Gaming Show at E3, Deep Silver and YS Net premiered a new gameplay trailer for the upcoming Shenmue III. Shenmue III continues the story of Ryo Hazuki, a young martial artist seeking revenge on the man who murdered his father, Lan Di. As Ryo travels deep into the mountains of Guilin, China, the game will see the introduction of a new antagonist to the game, Niao Sun who will work alongside Lan Di.
The Shenmue series began on the SEGA Dreamcast in 1999, and was revolutionary for its time as a 3D open-world game. Despite stopping in 2002 with Shenmue II, the game’s creator, Yu Suzuki, always intended the game to be a massive, multi-part epic story, and in 2015 he was finally able to bring it back to life via the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter.
Shenmue III launches November 19th on PlayStation 4 and PC.
