Shenmue 3 PS4 PlayStation 4 1

We’re regularly writing about Shenmue again and it’s really bloody strange. Coinciding with tomorrow’s Shenmue I & II release, Yu Suzuki is lining up some kind of Shenmue III announcement during the Gamescom 2018 opening ceremony. The show – which will also showcase world premieres and reveals from a variety of publishers like Ubisoft and THQ Nordic – is scheduled to get underway from 10AM BST tomorrow.

While the veteran director will not be in Cologne, he’s prepared a short video statement which will air during the event itself. Could it be a release date? It seems unlikely at this stage, but hopefully we get a good progress update on the project, and perhaps even some new gameplay footage. What are you hoping to see?
