Shenmue 3 will release Aug. 27, 2019, publisher Deep Silver announced in a new trailer for the game that was released during Gamescom 2018.
The one-and-a-half minute release date trailer sets up the long-awaited finale with a look at beloved protagonist Ryo Hazuki and Ling Shenhua. Watch the trailer below.
The dramatic ending of Shenmue 2 left players wanting to conclude the story, but it has been a long journey to get to Shenmue 3’s latest release date. The third chapter in the saga was originally announced at E3 2015, about 14 years after Shenmue 2 was released.
Director Yu Suzuki and developer Ys Net’s Kickstarter campaign for the game broke records, but the studio failed to deliver Shenmue 3 when it was originally expected to. Shenmue 3’s latest release date is about two years after its originally scheduled launch, and there is still no guarantee it will actually launch on Aug. 27, 2019.
In the meantime, you can play the remastered Shenmue 1 & 2, which just launched for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
