See Shenmue 3's New Screenshots
New screenshots of Shenmue 3 emerged online, giving us a fresh look at the partially crowdfunded sequel to the beloved Dreamcast series. The screenshots show protagonist Ryo and Shenhua in a number of picturesque outside environments.
The screenshots were shown at the Magic Monaco Convention, which released one of the images. Fansite ShenmueDojo later released two more. The Shenmue 3 Kickstarter was unveiled during Sony's E3 press conference, and it was funded in record time. It soon exceeded $2 million and as a result, a number of the project's stretch goals have also been met. This effectively expanded the scope of the game to include a skill tree and a rapport system, as well as additional quests and expanded areas.
