Fans were disappointed by Shenmue III’s presence at MAGIC 2018 in Monaco this weekend, as Ys Net opted to show an extended version of last year’s awkward Gamescom 2018 trailer instead of all-new footage. The developer did, however, release four new screenshots, which we’ve embedded in this article. The character models are actually looking passable at this point, but they still look like emotionless mannequins.
Many believe that the lack of any gameplay this weekend signals a delay into 2019, but the long-awaited sequel is still officially dated for a late 2018 release. Deep Silver (now owned by THQ Nordic, of course) has been brought on board as the release’s publisher, so hopefully we see a much better promotional plan for the project moving forwards, as it's been pretty poor ever since the title was announced.
