During a THQ Nordic meeting, Deep Silver and Ys NET presented a new in-engine trailer for Shenmue 3. This trailer shows the current state – visual-wise – of the game, though we expect it to look better than what is being showcased here. After all, this is pre-alpha footage.
Yesterday, Deep Silver announced that the game will be delayed until 2019. Deep Silver and THQ Nordic decided to delay it so they can give some extra time to the development team so it can further polish it.
Shenmue 3 is powered by Unreal Engine 4 and is in development at Yu Suzuki’s independent company, Ys Net, located in Tokyo along with many original Shenmue team members. The game has been under development for more than three years as it was officially revealed at Sony’s E3 2015 press conference.
Enjoy (trailer starts at 2:16 mark point).
