You might be surprised that Ys Net did this but they have actually managed to show off a short clip from Shenmue 3 while the game still is in the Kickstarter campaign.
It is a short video spanning just a little over 30 seconds and features one of the locations from within the game called Lake of the Lantern Bugs.
You see the two leading characters, Shenhua and Ryo standing awestruck as thousands of lantern bugs rise up to the sky in a deep blue sky. The aura created by the scene coupled with the background score gives it a beauteous feeling.
Ryo and Shenhua arrive at the Lake of the Lantern Bugs after their long journey. Entranced, they watch the gentle flight of the lantern bugs upon the mirage-like oasis.
In case you didn’t notice, we are down to the last couple of days in the Kickstarter campaign for Shenmue 3; if you wish to help funding the game you should do so now.
This is even more important now that Ys Net has confirmed the scale of the game will remain the same as the original Shenmue title if the stretch goals are not met.
Here’s a detailed story we did on the funding of Shenmue 3 alongside the gameplay and story details that were shared by Yu Suzuki recently.
