Shenmue III PC Version Finally Makes Its Way to Steam This Month
Third entry previously launched for PS4 and PC via the Epic Games Store
It's been almost a year since Shenmue III made its long-awaited debut, which also means its PC exclusivity on the Epic Games Store is about to come to an end. Publisher Deep Silver announced plans to expand those PC options when the third entry in Yu Suzuki's saga makes its way to Steam on November 19.
For those who haven't been following Shenmue III, developer Ys Net originally crowdfunded the game via Kickstarter, where it still sits as the most funded video game project on the platform. After pulling in an incredible $6,333,295 for development, Shenmue III eventually launched on PS4 and the Epic Games Store on November 19, 2019.
Description from the Steam page:
The brainchild of award-winning game director, Yu Suzuki, Shenmue is commonly known as one of the most ambitious game projects in history, which captured the imagination of players from around the world.
