Ys Net has finally dropped the first official teaser trailer for Shenmue 3, Now I know what you’re thinking “Ugh, why now? The game is like a year off!” Yes I know, and while the wait pains me as well, this teaser trailer eases the pain more than you could ever imagine.

The scenery in this first teaser trailer is absolutely beautiful to say the least; I can’t even imagine how grand the imagery will be once the game is finished. For those of you who are crazy fans of the first two Shemue titles, you’ll be happy to know that based on this teaser trailer, the game seems to stay very close to it’s roots but improves upon them.

Shenmue 3 was originally slated for a late 2017 release, however it was confirmed earlier this year that the title would be delayed into a late 2018 release window. In the meantime it seems we’ll be getting more developer updates and some teaser footage here and there, so definitely keep an eye out for more information.
