One of the biggest success stories in Kickstarter history, Shenmue 3 was unveiled back at E3 2015, and now it’s finally a real game that you can actually play. Here’s how to save your game in Shenmue 3.
How to Save Your Game in Shenmue 3
Like most modern video games these days, Shenmue 3 does indeed allow you to save your progress. Considering the fact that it features a pretty lengthy campaign with a large world to explore, it wouldn’t really be feasible or reasonable to expect players to just beat the game in one sitting. And that’s where the save function comes into play.
In Shenmue 3, you can actually record your progress at any time. Bring up your inventory menu by pressing the R1 button, then choose the Save option. This will make a record of your progress so far.
Alternatively, you can also save your game by interacting with the bed at Shenhua’s house when you need to take a rest. Lastly, Shenmue 3 also has an auto-save system that will automatically record your progress during key points in the game.
You’ll know this function has kicked in when you see the word Autosaving pop up in the top corner of your screen. Make sure not to turn off the console when your progress is being recorded.
Whenever you want to jump back into the game, you’ll be able to load up your latest save file and continue the story from where you last left off.
To recap, here’s how to save your game in Shenmue 3:
- Press R1 to bring up your inventory menu, then choose the Save option.
- You can also record your progress by interacting with the bed in Shenhua’s house.
- The game will automatically record your progress during key points in the story.
