Posted 1 year ago

Kid Nocon has released a video showcasing the Hazuki residence from Shenmue recreated in Unreal Engine 4, which can be viewed below:

Shenmue III uses the Unreal Engine 4, and with its Kickstarter campaign having surpassed $6M (of a $2M goal) it has been a smashing success. Whether the assets used by Kid Nocon will be used in Shenmue 3, is unknown, but we can safely assume that the end result will likely look much better than this, as both the talent behind the project and the incredible potential of the Unreal Engine 4 could produce some astounding results.

Shenmue 3 is the true sequel to the classic open world action RPG games, Shenmue and Shenmue 2

Shenmue 3 is the true sequel to the classic open world action RPG games, Shenmue and Shenmue 2. Created for modern platforms (PC and PlayStation 4) and built-in Unreal 4, Shenmue 3 will continue the legacy of Shenmue.

  • Shenmue 3 will have familiar elements from its predecessors and new fight mechanics to achieve a new level of interactive storytelling.
  • If this project reaches its funding goal, Shenmue 3 will be available on the PS4 and PC.
  • Our ambition is to deliver a Shenmue experience that will draw in newcomers to the series and reward diehard fans with its deep story and rich gameplay.

14 years of planning and ideas from one of the greatest game designers of all time… darn right, there are Stretch Goals! Could these Stretch Goals lead this next Shenmue to change the way we play games again? You know they can. But we can’t add Stretch Goals after the game is on shelves.

The more we can raise during this campaign, the more Shenmue 3 will come alive. Together, we can make it happen. Together, we can make a Shenmue that surpasses even the originals.


Other notable Unreal Engine 4 projects include the gorgeous Absention, a new survival horror title inspired by true survival horror greats such as Resident Evil, Eternal Darkness and Silent Hill so fans can expect a mixture of mental challenge, intense gameplay, and immersive environments.
