At last the Shenmue III teaser trailer is revealed

She wore a bright yellow beret the kind you’d see in a game of Shenmue

All of the characters seen in the footage sport blank, pale, emotionless faces of the type you'd expect to see on one of Madame Tussauds' wax dummies.

Unfortunately, the game was a commercial failure, and the long-awaited sequelwas only able to go ahead after a successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter which made over $6 million. Now this partially-crowdfunded follow-up is set to continue the story, this trailer giving fans their first chance to see the game in action.

The teaser trailer is built from a "small slice" of an in-development build of the game, and provides a sneak peek at the new looks of the main characters, new characters, and the feels of Shenmue world. This first teaser trailer serves as more of a vehicle for the game's environments.

A reason for this might be the value of nostalgia, which creator, Yu Suzuki, has pegged as the primary focus of Shenmue 3. Did you know that the new game could introduce a major evolution in QTE? As you will see, the latest chapter in Ryo and Shenhua's journey begins with a lovely set piece in China. Since then, the team has been extremely busy developing the game in Tokyo, but now it's time to come up for air. The game is still a year or so away from release and it's entirely possible that the characters' facial animation will be far superior when the game finally hits.
