Shenmue III to Exhibit Only in Business Area for Gamescom 2017

Ys Net has shared a new update regarding Shenmue III’s exhibition at this year’s Gamescom.

The game will only be shown off in the business area, meaning you won’t be able to see it or series’ creator Yu Suzuki unless you’re part of the media or have a business appointment.

Here are the new details, via Ys Net:

  • The business area
    We will be participating in the business area. The area is limited to media and other business members of the game industry. Unfortunately, general admittance visitors cannot enter this area. For the latest on-site info, we please ask you to check the various media outlets.
  • The entertainment area
    This area is open to the public. We have no events planned for this venue at the moment, but we are communicating with the organizers to see if we can do something with the fans in this area. Should we have an event in the entertainment area, we will notify you with the details as soon as possible.

This year’s Gamescom runs from August 22nd to the 26th.

Shenmue III is launching for both PC and PlayStation 4 sometime in the second half of 2018.
