Today Shenmue III developer Ys Net released three new screenshots of the upcoming adventure game by Yu Suzuki.

The screenshots were shared by Shibuya Productions President Cedric Biscay, and by the Twitter account of the German anime and game show Magic Monaco, that hosted a press conference today.

We get to see Ryo and Shenhua, with their character models that appear to be massively improved from what we have seen before, and two beautiful environments. One is an urban vista at night, and the other shows a port apparently at dawn.

The game certainly appears to have made some pretty large steps towards a higher level of graphical fidelity compared to previous showings.

You can check them out in the gallery below.  If you want to see more, you can check out a recently-revealed new character, a video about facial animation, older screenshots featuring protagonist Ryo Hazukithe first trailer and more screenshotsanother batch, and the announcement of the publishing partnership with Deep Silver.

Shenmue III has been delayed to the second half of 2018 to make it “bigger and more beautiful.” The game will release for PS4 and PC.

For the sake of full disclosure, the author of this post backed the game back when it was on Kickstarter.
