PC version comes to Slacker Backer pre-order page
« on: December 14, 2016, 04:25:22 AM »
The PC version of Shenmue III will be available to pre-order from this Thursday, December 15th, according to the latest weekly issue of Famitsu in Japan.

The same report also quotes Yu Suzuki’s belief that early in the new year they should be at a stage where new video footage is ready to be shown, as they are entering the final phase of development.

Keep an eye on the game’s official website for updates, where of course the PlayStation 4 version can already be pre-ordered.

The latest update from Ys Net has gone live, and, as anticipated, so have pre-orders for the PC version of Shenmue III as part of the Slacker Backer campaign at - where you can also pre-order the PS4 version and many other rewards.

The update explains that your choice between the PC or PS4 version - even if you have already made your payment - can be confirmed when the backer surveys are sent out in Summer 2017, along with other details relating to the reward tiers paid for.

Also in the update, as previewed in this post, are some gorgeous new work-in-progress screenshots showing off the game's ongoing development. In the shot we've chosen to show here, a toy forklift can be seen beside a pair of feet that presumably belong to Ryo Hazuki. Is it too soon to speculate whether this might represent a mini-game? Finding actual full-sized forklifts in rural China could be a tall order, after all!
