As Shenmue III’s launch date draws nearer, more information about the characters people will see and things Ryo will experience have appeared. The latest sneak peek is a look at the series’ iconic antagonist, Lan Di. Cedric Biscay, the Shenmue III Co-Producer and Shibuya Productions President and CEO, shared a screenshot of the villain.
In addition to the new look at Lan Di, Biscay issued a reminder that there will be something Shenmue III-related at the Magic Monaco event on March 9, 2019. He did not note specifically what the announcements or reveal may entail, but did say, “So much more to come at
@MagicMonaco next 9th of March!” We do know that there will be a trailer with gameplay, as that was mentioned in a February 7, 2019 tweet.
Here is Biscay’s Shenmue III Lan Di tweet.
