Just in time for the 20th anniversary of the Dreamcast, Limited Run Games announced a limited edition set of Shenmue III. According to the status update from their Twitter account, the set will be available for preorder on Monday, September 9th at 12pm ET:

The Shenmue III Collector’s Edition includes:

  • Shenmue III physical game for the PlayStation 4
  • Premium foil stamped box
  • Premium high-gloss individually numbered foil embossed slipcover
  • Replica Phoenix/Dragon mirror
  • Iron-on patches featuring designs from the Shenmue series
  • Shoji door styled light box/desk lamp
  • A set of Shenmue stickers
  • Commemorative Sega Dreamcast case styled after the original Shenmue Dreamcast case
  • Shenmue III Limited Run Games trading card

Shenmue III Collector’s Edition will launch on November 19th and those who purchase this set are expected to receive it on or around that date. There are only 5,000 copies of this version produced so definitely make sure to get your hands on it before they’re gone for good. You can preorder it on this site only. The set had been previously announced back in June but the finer details had not been revealed at that time.

The main story will take from 35 to 40 hours to complete. In the past, around two years ago, Yu Suzuki said the game would be around 50 hours long, but this ended up being readjusted as development went on. However, he added that the game’s main story will take you around 50 hours to complete if you play in Challenge difficulty.

And you’ll be able to play it much more if you try to do everything and play at your own pace. The playtime will differ depending on your playstyle, and simply rushing the main story “won’t let you see even 30% of Shenmue III.”

Storywise, Suzuki hinted at something pretty big. He reiterated that Shenmue III won’t finish the whole story, but we’ll learn much more about Ryo’s father Iwao and what did he do in China in the past. we’ll also learn more on the mirrors and the Sword of the Seven Stars. And most notably, Yu Suzuki hinted that we might get to see Ryo and Lan Di settle the score in some way.
