Deep Silver is Publishing Shenmue III

Forklifts will be involved somehow, some way.

The highly-anticipated Shenmue III is going through some growing pains, but here's some news that ought to smooth out the game's journey to the finish line: It has a publisher now.

Deep Silver is doing the 'deed, same as it's done for Persona 5 and the upcoming Yakuza Kiwami. As long as we don't get any cringe-inducing ads about Ryo crying like an anime fan on prom night, there's no reason to believe Deep Silver isn't up to the job. Yeah, Mighty No. 9 flashbacks are going to follow me into the grave.

"God, we're sorry about that ad. We really, truly are."

"We are proud to have gained a wonderfully reliable partner to make sure Shenmue III reaches all its fans all over the planet," states an entry made today on the official Shenmue III blog.

Shenmue III is due out in the latter half of 2018, and it's targeted for the PC and PlayStation 4. Why not warm up with some Yakuza games in the meantime?
