A new trailer for the long-awaited Shenmue III has been released as part of the ongoing Tokyo Game Show, and while it doesn't necessarily focus on any particular aspect of the game, it offers a nice overview of the world in which players will play by showing off a number of locations and characters during various activities and times of day. It's described as a "mood video," and that certainly seems to fit the bill.
Though the game, which follows the life of Ryo Hazuki, is finally set to release later this year, it has had its share of development troubles. It's been delayed multiple times, and recently ran into some difficulties when it was announced that the PC version of the title would be exclusive to the Epic Games Store -- long after the crowdfunding campaign had promised Steam codes. While all of these hurdles appear to have been cleared, it'll be interesting to see what, exactly, the final product ends up looking like when it does release.
