Shenmue 3

Shenmue 3

Release date: November 19, 2019
Genre: Adventure 

What is it? Part crowd-funded, part Sony financed follow up to the expensive Dreamcast games that basically bankrupted the console.  

Why it's so interesting: That Shenmue 3 isn't just vapourware is perhaps the most intriguing thing about it. There's clearly still a lot of love for Ryo and his insatiable hunger for seamen, as the game was crowd-funded hours after being re-revealed at E3 2015. During the PC Gaming show at E3 2019, a new gameplay trailer was revealed, showing off our hero taking on some drunken thugs with a lot of his trademark punches and kicks. The trailer also revealed the news that the release date has been pushed back from its initial date in August to November 19. After so many years since it was first revealed, it's good to know it's still making its way to us this year.
