Shenmue III will release on 27th August, 2019, a new trailer from the Gamescom 2018 opening ceremony has confirmed. As part of a Deep Silver segment, Yu Suzuki showcased a new trailer from the game, which is by far the best we’ve seen thus far. While it’s clear that there’s still a lot of work to do, we get a glimpse of Ryo Hazuki coming face-to-face with Lan Di, which has this author hyped beyond belief.

The sequel picks up immediately after the events of Shenmue II, so if you weren’t planning on it, there’s never been a better time to play through Shenmue I & II on the PlayStation 4, which is out today. You can read our first impressions of the long-awaited ports through here.
