Shenmue III Publisher Revealed as Deep Silver

August 17, 2017

Game developers Ys Net have just announced to their Kickstarter email subscribers that the Shenmue III publisher has been revealed as Deep Silver. The global publishing contract will ensure Shenmue III gets the advertising campaign it deserves in the lead up to its launch in December 2017.

Deep Silver has been known to help launch many Japanese games successfully into the global market, including such franchises as Sacred and Shin Megami Tensei. To check out Deep Silver’s full game archive, follow this link.

After a lengthy hiatus to the Shenmue series (the previous game launched in 2001 on Sega Dreamcast and the original Xbox), Shenmue III had an overwhelmingly successful Kickstarter campaign, with the funding smashing past the $1 million USD mark in less than two hours. With many stretch targets reached, the final amount of $6.6 million USD means Shenmue III will have plenty of additional content that fans seem to definitely be craving.
