Fans are divided on the overall quality of Shenmue III, but it’s looking like there’ll be less debate over Adult Swim and Crunchyroll’s adaptation: Shenmue: The Animation is looking ace. This brand new trailer includes scenes from both Shenmue and Shenmue II, and everything from the animation to the Shenhua voiceover seems spot-on to us.
The anime is due out in 2022 and will span 13 full-length episodes. Series creator Yu Suzuki is serving as an executive producer on the project, while Chikara Sakurai is directing at Telecom Animation Film. The best news about this project is that it will almost certainly keep the series in the limelight, which increases the chances of a fourth instalment eventually seeing the light of day.
