Get ready to upgrade your PC hard drive. Shenmue 3 will require PC users to make space for a 100GB file size download if they are to play this game.
Ys Net, began a Kickstarter in 2015 to come full circle with a third installment in the Shenmue series.

While there has yet to be a full trailer, the developers did offer a small peak of the game last year. Alongside the unveiling of the requirements, the update in its Kickstarter page gives a heads up to backers of the availability of surveys. This survey will allow backers to receive updates for their rewards in return for their pledge.
An HD collection of the first Shenmue and its sequel is expected to release this year. If you have yet to experience the cult hit games, then the collection will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC for you to choose from. Shenmue I and II originally released for the Dreamcast console beginning in 1999. Since the release of the second game, the development cost was not recouped and as a result, Shenmue 3 was stuck in development hell for more than a decade.
