Upcoming ‘Shenmue III’ Gameplay Video Teaser Surfaces: Lake Of The Lantern Bugs

Shenmue-III-Lake-of-the-Latern-BugsWith just mere hours left until the Shenmue III Kickstarter finishes, fans of the series will no doubt be ecstatic that the long awaited finale to the trilogy is all but guaranteed. Having smashed the original target and on track to surpass a massive $5 million, the team behind the project have released a small clip of the game in action.

Although nothing more than a cutscene of both Ryo and Shenhua meeting into the night, this behind-the-scenes footage gives us a promising glimpse into what the future holds for Shenmue III. Set at the Lake of the Lantern Bugs after their long on-going journey, the video on offer stands by as various glowing insects surround our heroes.

The footage itself is very much marked as being in development and anything but representative of the final game, but nevertheless it once again shows that the series we’ve longed for is finally making a comeback. Set to hit both the PlayStation 4 and PC, it’s only a matter of time before we’re departing on another immersive adventure.

It's strange how the 3D models still look like Xbox/DC erra. I wonder if it's going to be updated at all.
