Those of you who backed Shenmue III on Kickstarter should receive a survey soon, allowing you to select your t-shirt size and share other details depending upon the tier you chose. And to celebrate that news, developer Ys Net has released a cute little clip starring one of the title’s characters: Rin. It’s obviously not representative of the final product because the scene won’t even be in the game, but it looks better than anything we’ve seen to date, which is reassuring. There’s even a brief cameo from travel ticket cannibal Chai if you look closely.
Don’t panic if you haven’t received your survey yet: it should come soon. You’ll have until 30th September to fill in all of the details, at which point Yu Suzuki and crew will move into the final phase of development ahead of launch next year. It’s getting closer, folks – but at least we have the remasters to look forward to in the interim.
