As the release of Shenmue 3 gets closer and closer, Ys Net and Deep Silver try to tempt potential game buyers by revealing the extra content available with the game’s pre-order. Let’s see what the American players who book it will be entitled to.
First of all, there is a common package for all participating retailers, which includes:
- 3 bottles of Snake Power, the elixir that restores energy in battle
- 5000 coins for the gambling area
- Blazing Kick skill unlocked immediately
- 24 tickets to exchange for toy capsules
In addition to these items, Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop and EB Games all have exclusive pre-order bonuses.
Amazon offers a DLC with an extra jacket for Ryo Hazuki, Kenpogi Training Wear, based on traditional Kung Fu clothes. Best Buy provides for the Limited Edition Steelbook, with a special illustration of Ryo and Shenhua. GameStop and EB Games (for Canada) finally offer the medallion with the dragon and the phoenix.
Shenmue 3 will be available starting November 19 on PlayStation 4 and PC. Recently he has been criticized for his exclusivity on Epic Games Store, so much so that reimbursements have been made for Shenmue 3 backers on Kickstarter.
