Shenmue fans have been eagerly waiting for the launch of the third installment of the series to continue the story of Ryo Hazuki. The adventure of the young Japanese martial artist that searches for the killer of his father has managed to get the attention of many players over the years and now it seems that we are finally getting the promised following chapter in the story. After the series creator Yu Suzuki revealed yesterday the first gameplay trailer of Shenmue 3 during the PC Gaming Show 2019, we seem to be one step closer to the launch of the next game in a saga that spans over the last 20 years.

As you can see in the video, Ryo is still in very good shape, and he shouldn´t have any problems to deal with those drunken thugs. The rest of the aspects of the game are yet to be unveiled, but we can imagine that Shenmue 3 will follow the steps of its predecessors, focusing on the story and martial arts with the appropriate visual upgrade and maybe some surprises.

You could consider as one of those surprises that Shenmue 3 will exclusively be available on Epic Games Store for PC. It seems that Epic Games managed to score another victory against Steam in their particular war securing a big launch for their video games platform. Also, it looks that they don´t plan to stop there. After revealing that other recently revealed titles like Zombie Army 4: Dead War and Chivalry 2 are also exclusive to their store, Epic Games is launching a more aggressive campaign to gain adepts for Epic Games Store. If they were previously giving away a free game every two weeks, they are going to expand it to one game per week until the end of the year.

There are no plans so far for the release of Shenmue 3 on Xbox One.
