Shenmue III Heads to Steam November 19; One Year After Epic Games Store Launch

Shenmue III

Developer Ys Net has announced the Shenmue III Steam release date, being exactly one year after its Epic Games Store launch.

While the game is currently available on Windows PC, it was a PC exclusive via the Epic Games Store; a decision that drew ire from some fans. The Steam release date of November 19th is exactly one year after it launched on the Epic Games Store in 2019.

The news comes via the game’s Kickstarter, also noting that backers can opt in for their game key and in-game rewards on Steam thanks to a prior survey. However, this survey can be resent if needed. The game is also available on PlayStation 4. In case you missed it, you can find our review here (we highly recommend it!)

You can find the full rundown on the game (via the Steam) below:

The brainchild of award-winning game director, Yu Suzuki, Shenmue is commonly known as one of the most ambitious game projects in history, which captured the imagination of players from around the world. Shenmue established the open-world format for action RPG games. An awe-inspiring world with an immersive story, featuring cinematic sequences, a realistic fighting system, and entertaining mini-games, Shenmue garnered acclaim and adoration all over the world.

Shenmue III sees the eagerly anticipated continuation of the epic story-driven saga. Take control of Ryo Hazuki, a teenage martial artist, determined to unravel the mystery behind his father’s murder and to exact revenge on the killer.

Explore a vibrant, colourful open world, meet intriguing characters and endeavour on a cinematic adventure which will take you further into enemy territory and deeper into the mystery of the Phoenix Mirror.
