YS Net just released their third video in the game development series amidst some disappointing news. Shenmue III is going to skip E3 2017 as Yu Suzuki and his team have their hands full with the game's development with apparently no second to spare. Here is the message that they had for fans:
We have also been receiving questions from our backers regarding our plans to participate in upcoming game shows. While our schedule has yet to be finalized, we will be devoting June to game development and as a result, will unfortunately not be participating in any game shows. On the other hand, we look forward to bringing you our monthly updates and hope you do too!
As a consolation though, they are revealing a new character model. So it seems that YS Net will continue to be hard at work with the game during June. Check the short new video report just below to witness some serious body building.
The video is a small consolation after hearing confirmation that nothing significant of the game will be shown at E3. It makes one wonder whether the game will even release this year as a release date announcement at E3 would have been a pretty good bombshell to drop on gamers. The game might perhaps be farther off than anyone could have imagined. Here's to hoping it will pay off at the end.
