New Shenmue III Update Shows A Tiny Bit Of In-Engine Footage

The latest update for Shenmue III sneaks in some information about the game alongside some nuts and bolts details for backers looking to secure their copy.

First of all, developer Ys Net has released a little video that shows just a tiny bit of in-engine footage from the game. I am hesitant to call it gameplay, but it's pretty safe to assume this is about the visual quality that can be expected form the game.

Alongside the video, the update on the official Shenmue III site details the game's minimum specs for PC, and also reveals the game's file size will be about 100 GB.

You will also find some details about the "Battle system" on that same page, though it is still a little ambiguous:

Shenmue III is set for release next year on PC and PlayStation 4.
