Shenmue 3 will benefit from the touch of a familiar hand on the rein.

Shenmue 3 will be reunite Yu Suzuki with Keiji Okayasu, the lesser known co-director of the first two games.

Okayasu’s involvement was revealed to Shenmue 3 Kickstarter backers in the video above, which includes some discussion of his collaboration with Suzuki.

Shenmue 3 is currently expected on PC and PS4 in late 2017. Although Ys Net hasn’t made a lot of noise about the project, it keeps in regular touch with backers and we expect to hear more from it as the project approaches a state suitable for showing off to the general public.
