Three new screenshots give a fresh look at Shenmue 3

Images surface from Monaco games expo

Three new screenshots of Shenmue 3 have emerged from the MAGIC expo currently underway in Monaco.

The images (one is above, two are below) are fairly static even with Ryo and Shenhua pictured together. Of course, they're facing away from the viewer, but this at least shows 1) the characters in-game (one assumes) and 2) development is still proceeding apace.

The Kickstarter funding Shenmue 3's production was announced in June at Sony's E3 2015, keynote; it hit its funding target in a matter of hours and took in more than $6.3 million in donations when all was finished, though creator Yu Suzuki said the project really needed $10 million to be a true open-world game.

Developer Ys Net has promised to deliver Shenmue 3 by December 2017 for PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.
