In the latest Kickstarter update, Ys Net revealed the Shenmue 3 PC system requirements.
The third entry in the series, which launches next year, will require an Intel i5-4460 CPU, 4Gb RAM, NVIDIA GTX 650 Ti or better to run. Interestingly enough, the game will also require 100 GB of free storage space, which is quite a bit, compared to other games on the market and those launching in the near future.

As the game is still in development, Ys Net notes, requirements may be different in the final release.
Back in May, publisher Deep Silver confirmed that Shenmue 3 will be released in 2019 and not this year as originally announced, as the game required additional time for polish.
Deep Silver today announce that their upcoming release Shenmue III has been moved and will now release in 2019. The extra time will be used to polish the quality of the game even further, to the high standards it deserves and release the product in the best possible timeframe
Shenmue 3 launches on PC and PlayStation 4 sometime next year.
