Many had expected Shenmue III to be on display at E3 2017 next month, but developer Ys Net has ruled that out in an update on the title’s Kickstarter page. “We will be devoting June to game development and, as a result, will unfortunately not be participating in any game shows,” the studio said.

It’s still possible there may be a trailer during Sony’s press conference, but there certainly won’t be any playable demos on the show floor. To prove that all is well with the title’s production, though, the team has released a development diary showing off a new character from the game. He looks a bit like Hugo from Final Fight, doesn’t he?
