“Shenmue III” (finally) Coming to Steam on 19 November
Developer Ys Net recently announced that Shenmue III will be releasing on the Steam store on 19 November, which is exactly one year after its launch on the Epic Games Store.
Ys Net made the announcement on the Shenmue III Kickstarter page. You can read the announcement below.
Yes, it is official, Shenmue III will be released on Steam this November 19th.
Game and in-game rewards codes will be available for PC version backers who manually selected the Steam opt-in through the survey during the September/October 2019 survey resend period. Applicable backers will be able to claim their codes through the “Downloads and Download Codes” section of your survey. Fangamer will send out email notices when the codes are ready a few days prior to release.
As a reminder, you can go to the Survey Resender if you need your survey resent.
With the Steam release, we hope even more people will journey to Guilin and the world of Shenmue III again or for the first time.
Shenmue III is currently available on PS4, Windows PC and the Epic Games Store. This is the end of a long wait for some disappointed Kickstarter backers, as the Shenmue III became a timed exclusive for the Epic Games Store long after the crowdfunding campaign ended, causing the Steam release to be delayed by another year.
Here’s the official breakdown of Shenmue III taken from the game’s Steam page:
The brainchild of award-winning game director, Yu Suzuki, Shenmue is commonly known as one of the most ambitious game projects in history, which captured the imagination of players from around the world. Shenmue established the open-world format for action RPG games. An awe-inspiring world with an immersive story, featuring cinematic sequences, a realistic fighting system, and entertaining mini-games, Shenmue garnered acclaim and adoration all over the world.
Shenmue III sees the eagerly anticipated continuation of the epic story-driven saga. Take control of Ryo Hazuki, a teenage martial artist, determined to unravel the mystery behind his father’s murder and to exact revenge on the killer.
Explore a vibrant, colourful open world, meet intriguing characters and endeavour on a cinematic adventure which will take you further into enemy territory and deeper into the mystery of the Phoenix Mirror.
