Although Shenmue III has been pushed back to November, this has not stopped the hype train for the highly anticipated sequel. Publisher Deep Silver has now revealed the bonuses that players will receive when they pre-order Ryo’s next adventures.
- 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
Different retailers will also be offering their own bonus pre-order items to entice consumers.
Best Buy will have a limited edition Steelbook that “captures the beauty and elegance of the Shenmue series and features portraits of Shenmue III heroes Ryo and Shenhua.” Gamestop pre-orders will net you a Dragon/Phoenix Mirror Medallion, an actual “physical item is inspired by the iconic Dragon and Phoenix mirrors of the Shenmue series.”
Lastly, Amazon pre-orders will give players the Kenpogi Training Wear DLC, which are “original training gear based on actual Chinese Kung Fu wear.”
Unfortunately for Kickstarter backers, they will not be receiving any of the pre-order bonuses, nor will they get the content featured in the Deluxe Edition.
Shenmue III will arrive on store shelves for the PS4 and other platforms on November 19.
