Shenmue PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Shenmue III’s scheduled to release in 2018, and a trio of new PlayStation 4 screenshots show the progress that the project’s making. First up we get a new glimpse of protagonists Ryo Hazuki and Shenhua, who are beginning to resemble their Dreamcast counterparts. There’s still work to be done, but at least the character models look somewhat human at this stage.

The other shots show some environmental artwork, and are much more impressive. The colour palette is distinctly 'Shenmue', and the attention to detail is great. Apparently we’ll learn more about the long-awaited sequel on 24th February, when director Yu Suzuki is expected to attend MAGIC Monaco as a guest.
