by on July 29, 2016

Ys Net has announced that the original director of Shenmue, Keiji Okayasu, has joined the development team for the third title in the franchise as the game’s sub-director.

In a new video, Okayasu discusses his aims for Shenmue III as well as his past achievements throughout his career. You can find the interview below.

Shenmue III raised overĀ $6m last June in a overwhelmingly successful Kickstarter campaign, with Yu Suzuki, creator of the original series, returning to develop. Shenmue 3 has an expected release date of late 2017 and will be available on PC and PlayStation 4.
