The Light of Shenmue 3: Release date, trailers and news

For many, the upcoming release of Shenmue 3 is a dream come true. It's been 18 years since Shenmue 2's first release on the Sega Dreamcast, and it looks like we'll never see another installment in the action-adventure series for centuries.

But thanks to the persistence and passionate fans, the perseverance of director Yu Suzuki, and the successful Kickstarter, we finally see the light of Shenmue 3 Release November 19, 2019 (if it doesn't get delayed...again).

A sequel to its predecessor, Light Shenmue 3 will keep following the story of teen martial arts, Ryo Hazuki, as he searches for his father's killer in 1980s China, only to get caught up in dozens of mini-games, hassles and side quests along the way.

Can't wait to catch up on Ryo Hazuki's latest exploits on modern consoles? That's all we know about Shenmue 3 light so far.

Cashback on Kickstarter

The news that the release of Shenmue 3 on PC will be an epic store exclusive for a year, or whether the pair has brought magarych from unfortunate Kickstarter backers who believe they are a strong weapon in games from a store they don't want to support. As a result, there have been returns, and it looks like Epic Ready honor, and the Foundation, requests for returns.

On Twitter, the CEO, Tim Sweeney, confirmed the policy as a sign of goodwill towards the players.

We got our hands on the time with Light of Shenmue 3 during E3 2019 and it has to be said, it was a little disappointing. While there are new features such as Ryo being able to train individual skills through balance or temporary challenges, we found the game not to do well in ages. The characters are stone-faced, the combat is clunky and limited, while the game's graphics leave a lot to be desired. As fans of the original series, we were disappointed (but not all that surprised) to find the light of Shenmue 3 stuck in the past.

Epic store exclusivity
In an update to backers on Kickstarter, YS Net revealed that Shenmue Light 3 promises to be an epic store exclusive for awhile:

“Development for Shenmue III is already moving forward with the Unreal Engine and the support we've received from Epic has been excellent. But most importantly, in looking for the most enjoyable PC experience, it was decided along with Deep Silver after much discussion that Epic Games Store would be the best distribution option.”

Unfortunately, couple lovers.

Initially, we were supposed to get our hands on the light of Shenmue 3 in December 2017, but, oddly enough, the release date was delayed to 2018. Publishing house Deep Silver then announced the release window was once again delayed to 2019. It was finally revealed in August, in 2018 in the light of Shenmue 3 will be released on August 27, 2019, and then delayed further until November 19, 2019. Better late than never, right?

Open world
Speaking on pictures and screenshots, Suzuki said, “I decided to go all-in with creating a world-building of sorts. There are a lot of open world games out there, but I don't think many, if any, are quite like Light Shenmue.”

Minigames and QTE will return
It looks like there will be mini-games - as new games will be added. In a poll for Light Shenmue 3 on Kickstarter, YS net tried a poll that were favorites among fans. If you're a lucky hit fan, then you'll be happy to know that it seems to be back - and apparently you can win special prizes from the game and other mini-games.

In addition, Suzuki confirmed the fast time of the event will also be returning, so that your reflexes are ready.
