Hello Everyone,

The PC Gaming Show just wrapped up with some big news for Shenmue III. The new trailer was unveiled and it was announced Shenmue III for PC will be an Epic Games Store exclusive!


PC Version Epic Games Store Exclusive!

We are happy to announce that Shenmue III for PC will be will be an Epic Games Store exclusive. Development for Shenmue III has been moving forward using Unreal Engine and the support we have received from Epic has been excellent. But most importantly, in looking for the most enjoyable experience on PC, it was decided together with Deep Silver after much discussion that the Epic Games Store would be the best distribution platform option.

Unless it is no longer an epic store exclusive, nothing they do can make it right.
I'd like to name this new style sheet "The Homer", after his failed attempt at designing a car.

Even if they can't completely fix it, refunding people would still be better than nothing
It's dangerous to take this. Go alone.

Got an email from the Kickstarter today. Said that they heard the feedback and they tried to negotiate to allow backers immediate access to the Steam version, but Epic said no.

They're now letting people change their platform from PC to PS4 and if you stick with PC, you'll have an option to receive the Steam key when that version is available in a year. I'm not a fan of Deep Silver's decision - and I actively dislike Epic for their anti-consumer tactics, but Ys Net is doing their best to mitigate things.

To make the changes, go to the backer survey on fangamer. You must update your survey to choose the Steam version.

Lol, no. YS Net is part of the cause for these changes next to Yu Suzuki being a sellout. I'd refund this trash easily & just hope that Sega takes the franchise away from him & gives it to someone else to reboot it.

He's the one that created the franchise. It's his vision. Give it to someone else, and I'm no longer interested. He says that Deep Silver helped to make the game a reality, and considering that most developers benefit from a publisher, especially when selling physical media, I don't doubt him. The whole reason that any of the media that this community revolves around is because of "selling out." Or just eat your bitter s*** sandwich with sour grapes; whatever pleases you.
