Plot & Details
Thanks to crowdfunding, Shenmue 3 (Shenmue III) will actually become reality. In the third part of the action adventure saga, you will join the battle-proven Ryo Hazuki on his journey through China, where he is still trying to find his father's killer. The events tie seamlessly to the predecessors Shenmue and Shenmue 2, which appeared in 1999 and 2001 for the Dreamcast.
Story-technically, the third part starts directly with Shenmue 2. Ryo has traveled from Yokosuka, Japan to the mountains of Guilin, China to find Lan Di, his father's murderer. He meets the mysterious girl Leng Shenhua, who appeared in his dreams and whose destiny seems to be interlinked. Together, they search for Lan Di and get involved with another antagonist named Niao Sun.
The game begins in the village of Bailu in Guilin and then leads you to the larger village Choubu, which is located on a river and thanks to numerous shops, souvenir shops, hotels and temples much exploration space offers. Ryo can also make phone calls to Japan over the course of the game to engage with characters from previous parts.
Game Director Yu Suzuki claims to live for Shenmue 3 day and night. Sega has given Shenmue 3 licensing rights to Suzuki and his studio, and Sony will help out in publishing.
Shenmue 3 is currently being developed exclusively for the PC and the PlayStation 4. Other platforms are currently not planned. However, it may be that Sega plans in the meantime HD versions of the first two parts.
