Shenmue series creator Yu Suzuki will be at Koelnmesse in Cologne, Germany to share the latest news about Shenmue III‘s development. Unfortunately for non-media and business attendees, Ys Net is only planning to participate in the business area, rather than the public entertainment area.
Here are the details, via Ys Net:
The Business Area
We will be participating in the business area. The area is limited to media and other business members of the game industry. Unfortunately, general admittance visitors cannot enter this area. For the latest on-site info, we please ask you to check the various media outlets.
The Entertainment Area
This area is open to the public. We have no events planned for this venue at the moment, but we are communicating with the organizers to see if we can do something with the fans in this area. Should we have an event in the entertainment area, we will notify you with the details as soon as possible.
Gamescom 2017 runs from August 22 to 26.
Shenmue III is due out for PlayStation 4 and PC in the second half of 2018.
