Sometimes, it feels like Shenmue III is this wonderful dream that may never come to fruition. I mean, we have been talking about it for so many years now! But this dream will become a reality soon enough, and it becomes even more real when preorder bonuses are announced!
With Shenmue III releasing on Nov. 19th, 2019 on Playstation 4 and PC, Deep Silver has announced special preorder bonuses with your preorder of the game. When you pre-order at participating retailers, you can expect the following items:
- Snake Power: Three bottles of ‘Snake Power’ elixir to replenish energy during battle
- Playing Tokens: 5,000 playing tokens for the in-game gambling area
- “Blazing Kick” Advanced Training Scroll: Unlocks the advanced ability of the “Blazing Kick” to better challenge Ryo’s foes
- Toy Capsule: Set of 24 tickets to exchange for in-game capsule toys
In addition, retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, and Gamestop will have additional items for those who preorder from their specific stores.
Gamestop will offer a Dragon/Phoenix Mirror Medallion, a physical, crafted item that is inspired by the iconic Dragon and Phoenix mirrors of the Shenmue series.
Best Buy will offer a Limited Edition Steelbook, which is illustrated with portraits of Ryo and Shenhua.
Amazon will offer the Kenpogi Training Wear DLC, which is training gear based on actual Chinese Kung Fu wear.
I will also mention that Amazon has it currently listed at $49.94, which is a hell of a deal. However, the steelbook is definitely calling my name. No matter where you buy, I hope you consider picking up Shenmue III. I had a lot of fond memories of the first and second game, and I can’t wait to dive back into Ryo’s story.
