PlayStation 4™ – US, EU & ASIA
It’s been a few months since we last heard about Yu Suzuki’s upcoming Shenmue III. And the last update that we received was about its release date. If you can still recall, Shenmue III was originally planned to release on the 27th of August. But, Yu Suzuki and his team have to push back the release date of the game to November 19th.
According to game director, Yu Suzuki:
Whilst almost ready, the game simply needs a little more refinement before being truly finished. We feel that the extra time we have will help us deliver the true Shenmue experienced players around the world deserve! We thank you for your patience and understanding.
While Shenmue III won’t be landing on the PlayStation 4 for another two months and a half or so, publisher Deep Silver and developer Ys Net have shared a brand new trailer for the game titled, “A Day in Shenmue,” during Gamescom 2019.

While exploring the Chinese wilderness, Ryo meets Ling Shenhua – a girl who’s been showing up in his dreams. Apparently, fate united the two and team up to hunt down the main antagonist of this narrative, Lan Di, and achieve Ryo’s quest for revenge.
Shenmue III will be set in an open world according to the series director, Yu Suzuki. He also stated that there will be a part of the game where Ryo makes phone calls to his colleagues back in Japan, which will, in turn, improve connections.
