Ys Net Reveals First Shenmue 3 Teaser Trailer – Check Out The First Look Here (VIDEO)
It has been more than two years since the E3 2015 Sony conference in which the Kickstarter campaign for the long-awaited Shenmue 3 was announced. The campaign officially kicked off shortly afterwards, and was met with much success that made it one of the highest-earning Kickstarter projects ever. However, given the lengthy and complicated process of game development, hardly any footage of the game has been seen since the Kickstarter closed. However, creator Yu Suzuki promised that footage would be seen during Gamescom this year, and true to his word, the new Shenmue 3 teaser trailer has finally been released.
Ys Net releaese the first Shenmue 3 teaser trailer today, and it has been posted on the official PlayStation 4 YouTube channel. While no dialogue is spoken, we do see the return of Shenmue himself, as well as Ling Shenua who appeared in Shenmue’s dreams during the first game in the series. While the facial and movement animations on the characters do not seem to be finished yet, most of the traditional Japanese villages depicted in the trailer are beautifully rendered amidst gorgeous countryside backgrounds and dynamic natural lighting. Also, we get to see a bit of Shenmue’s return to martial arts training.
Shenmue 3 will reportedly follow the titular hero as he searches for his father’s killer, Lan Di, in the mountains of Guilin, China. The game is still scheduled to be released in the second half of 2018. What do you guys think about the new Shenmue 3 teaser trailer? What do you hope to see in the final game?
