Shenmue 3 sees the continuation of the epic story-driven saga. The player controls teenage martial artist Ryo Hazuki as he investigates his father's murder.

Players must explore the game's open world, searching for clues, examining objects and talking to non-player characters for information, taking them further into enemy territory, deeper into mystery, and even closer to their destiny.

The game is said to be the true sequel to the previous open-world role-playing games in the franchise. The game is built upon Unreal Engine 4 to power its visuals.

Shenmue 3 releases on August 27, 2019, for PC and PlayStation 4.
