Shenmue III is finally just a few days from launch, and today Sony Interactive Entertainment and Ys Net kicked off the celebrations with the launch trailer.
We get to see many of the characters that we’ll encounter in the game, including the first animated look at the recently-revealed Niao-Sun.
You can watch it below, with both English and Japanese voice acting depending on your preference.
I don’t know about you, but after 18 years of waiting it almost feels surreal for me that in a few days I’ll be playing Shenmue III on my own console.
It’s the end of a journey that lasted most of my adult life, during which I thought for a long time that I’d never see the continuation of a story that I loved, and this makes me smile.
If you want to see more about the game, you should also watch a video focusing on the story, another showcasing the world, one featuring combat and training, and another showcasing the gameplay features.
You can also enjoy the reveal of the mysterious Chi You Men boss Niao Sun, the previous trailer, one more video, another recent batch of screenshots, the previous trailer, some more gameplay, and more images and info from Japan expo.
Shenmue III will finally release for PS4 and PC on Nov. 19.
