Shenmue I & II Trailer – What is Shenmue? Episode 3: Combat & Mini-Games

Sega has released the third in its series of Shenmue I & II trailers exploring the basics of the Shenmue saga with Ryo Hazuki English voice actor Corey Marshall. This time, it focuses on the combat systems and different mini-games players can spend time with in the world.

Here is an overview of the video, via Sega:

“Ryo Hazuki is a Jiu Jitsu master-in-training, spending his spare time busting up the bad guys or sparring with his friends. In Shenmue I & II, you’ll use and unlock real Jiu Jitsu moves that you can level up throughout and transfer between both games – which will come in useful as the enemies become tougher throughout the saga. Beyond stunning Jiu Jitsu moves, you will need great reflexes to progress through Ryo’s quest of retribution. Players will be able to experience first-hand the very first Quick Time Events, which Shenmue introduced to the gaming world.

But it’s not all about street fights and martial arts practice for Ryo – he must unwind as well. Shenmue’s arcades have fully working versions of all-time classic games, so you can try your hand at Space Harrier – and if outside activities are more your thing, enter a forklift (or duck) race.”

Shenmue I & II is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on August 21.
