This is so surreal, folks. We’ve waited almost two decades for the successor to Shenmue II, and it’s finally right around the corner. Yes, the long-anticipated Shenmue III may have incurred a small delay this week, but all-new footage taken from a PlayStation 4 demo pod in a Walmart store looks every inch the successor we’ve dreamed of for years.
The clip showcases some cut-scenes, combat, returning characters, and even a few minigames. Frankly, it’s bizarre seeing stoic hero Ryo Hazuki assume his position in a forklift once more, but it’s good to know that the character will be able to partake in some all-new activities as well – like, er, whack-a-mole. The sequel will be on show at E3 2019 next week, and we simply can’t wait to see more.
