Alongside its first teaser trailer, Ys Net has released some brand new screenshots for Shenmue 3. Shenmue 3 is powered by Unreal Engine 4 and while its environments look gorgeous, there is really something wrong with the characters as they look like plastic dolls.
Unless this is an art direction, we hope that Ys Net will upgrade the skin shaders and add some additional details to the characters. Right now, these models remind us of the models used in older CG sequences. The look great apart from this plastic look so yeah, this is something that we feel Ys Net needs to fix.
Shenmue 3 is currently planned for a 2018 release.
