Shenmue III ‘Lake of the Lantern Bugs’ trailer releases just before hitting $5 million on Kickstarter

Developers Ys Net only have three more days to gather as much funding as they can for Shenmue III as the Kickstarter is about to wrap up. They’ve released a brand new trailer titled ‘Lake of the Lantern Bugs’ to generate more hype as the crowdfunding hits home stretch.

The trailer shows off Ryo and Shenmue near a lake with Lantern bugs all around them, this is also the first time we’ve seen how the game looks at night. Check out the Shenmue III Lake of the Lantern Bugs trailer below:

Not sold on the graphics yet but the game is far from release and I’m pretty confident that the final product will look much better. Hopefully Shenmue III ends up being all what fans expect it to be.


Shenmue III is currently in development for the Playstation 4 and PC. The game currently doesn’t have a release date. Let us know your thoughts on Shenmue III in the comments below.
