Shenmue III Gets Gamescom 2019 ‘A Day in Shenmue’ Trailer
Shenmue III was originally scheduled to release next Tuesday, on August 27th, but Yu Suzuki and his team at Ys Net decided to postpone the launch date, now set for November 19th. Here's how Suzuki-san explained this decision a couple of months ago:
Whilst almost ready, the game simply needs a little more refinement before being truly finished. We feel that the extra time we have will help us deliver the true Shenmue experience players around the world deserve! We thank you for your patience and understanding.
While we won't be getting our hands on Shenmue III for another two months and a half or so, publisher Deep Silver did share today a brand new trailer for gamescom 2019, titled 'A Day in Shenmue'. You can watch it below.
