New Shenmue 3 trailer looks at a day in Ryo’s life

Duke it out in the arena to get better kung fu

Ys Net and Deep Silver released this latest trailer for Shenmue 3 from Gamesom, showing the detail of the world surrounding Ryo Hazuki and his pastimes within it.

Mainly, it involves kicking someone’s ass.

There’s also pachinko and other midway mini-games to sample, but the most productive side activity looks to be the arena where Ryo can learn more kung fu. This training area also provides a useful demonstration of the fighting inside Shenmue 3, which is due to launch Nov. 19 for PlayStation 4 and Windows PC on the Epic Games Store.

Shenmue 3’s Epic Games exclusivity doesn’t sit well with many, and it led to some refunds for unhappy Kickstarter backers (paid by Epic Games). Still, almost 18 years after Shenmue 2, and four years after the crowdfunding campaign was announced in Sony’s E3 show, Shenmue 3 will at last be delivered. Open-world games have changed a great deal in that span, we’ll see if Shenmue 3 can change with the times, too.
