Survey opening details are currently undergoing final adjustments with our partners. An update will be posted in the coming days with the survey outline. We appreciate your cooperation would like to ask everyone to please wait a little longer.


Thank you always for your support.


———- General Information ———-

PS4 Region Selection and Refund Request Period

We are currently working on the necessary changes to the backer survey system. We ask for your patience as there will be a short wait while the preparations are made. Once the survey changes have been implemented, there will be an announcement here in the updates with details and notice of the survey response period. (Changes to your shipping address may still be made through the backer survey up until shipping begins.)


Trial Version

The trial version is scheduled for release during the second half of September. The elements and features to be included have almost all been pinned down, and we are now working to finalize a delivery date with our partners. Once a date has been confirmed, another announcement will be made here in the updates.


Trial Version Content

The trial version will feature a stand-alone act with objective that takes place in the first area of Shenmue III, Bailu Village. The game will be playable for an estimated 1 hours, and will be replayable after the objective has been cleared. There are lots of activities to experience and we hope you go back for more until the trial expires.

*The trial version will also come with a PDF play guide.

**Saves will not transfer over to the final version.

If you would like to change your PS4 region, you will be able to select from four regions: US, EU, Japan and Asia. Region options are listed below. Please note should your home region and PS4 console region setting differ. An announcement will be made when the option is added to the survey.

SIEE: Europe / Middle East / Africa / Oceania

SIEA: North America / Middle America / South America

SIE Japan: Japan

SIE Asia: Asia (excl. Mainland China and Japan)


*Please note, if your region selection differs from the PS4 system region or the console setting, PlayStation™Network online services or DLC may not function properly.

**Also, please be aware that a PS4 “cross region” selection may incur a shipping delay.


PC Physical version

The PC Physical version will come with an Epic Game Store key. The physical disk will contain the Epic Games Store installer and not the actual game data.
