After an extremely disappointing E3 2017 no-show, Shenmue III will be taking the trip to Gamescom 2017, where new footage of the anticipated PlayStation 4 sequel will debut. “While we are still working out the details with our partners, we plan to show our newest movie clips, share the latest updates, and even make some new announcements,” a spokesperson for developer Ys Net wrote in a Kickstarter update. Sony’s apparently still debating whether to hold a press conference in Cologne, but you can bet your bottom dollar that if it gives the green light you’ll be seeing the game during the platform holder’s show.
In other news, the title’s logo has also been updated: “Taking your comments into consideration, Yu Suzuki and the team gave the title logo another hard look and decided to update the logo.” To be honest, we hadn’t realised there was a huge problem with the old one, but this updated version is vastly superior, as you can see for yourself below:
We’re really excited to see how the game’s progressing. Gamescom 2017 is scheduled to run between 22nd August and 26th August, and as always you’ll find all of the news here on Push Square.
