Deep Silver has announced the nonsense players will receive if they pre-order upcoming action-adventure, Shenmue III.
All pre-order purchases come bundled with an energy boosting Snake Power elixir, some gambling tokens, an advanced Blazing Kick ability, and 24 toy capsule tickets. In addition, various US retailers have their own bonuses, best of which is a GameStop exclusive steelbook case. Such pleasures, such delights.
Shenmue III pre-order bonuses
- Snake Power – Three bottles of ‘Snake Power’ elixir that replenish energy
- Playing Tokens – 5,000 playing tokens for the in-game gambling area
- Blazing Kick Advanced Training Scroll – Unlocks the Blazing Kick ability
- Toy Capsule – 24 tickets to exchange for in-game capsule toys
Retailer specific Shenmue III pre-order bonuses
- Dragon/Phoenix Mirror Medallion – Physical item based on the series’ Dragon and Phoenix mirrors
- Limited Edition Steelbook – Illustrated steelbook case with portraits of Ryo and Shenhua
- Kenpogi Training Wear DLC – Training gear based on Chinese Kung Fu wear.
Shenmue III is the long-awaited third instalment in Yu Suzuki’s influential adventure series. It will be released on PlayStation 4 and PC – initially as an Epic Games Store exclusive – on November 19, 2019.
We played a chunk of the game at E3 2019 and came away slightly baffled but undeniably happy. As Tom says in his preview, if you’re looking for the most Shenmue experience possible, this is the game for you.
