Shenmue 3 won’t arrive until next year, but at least you can look over the minimum system requirements for the PC version ahead of time.

The minimum PC specs for Shenmue 3 were announced today to Kickstarter backers.

Ys Net provided the specs to backers as they will be able to choose between receiving a copy of the game for PC or PS4.

The information is also part of a survey being sent to backers, according to Game Watcher. As you can see, the minimum specs are rather conservative, but the storage space required is 100 GB.

Deep Silver has announced another delay for Shenmue 3 back in May. It was stated the team needed extra time to polish the game further.

A Kickstarter campaign for the title was announced during Sony’s E3 2015 presentation. The project passed its funding goal of $2 million within 24 hours.

When the crowdfunding period expired, over $6.3 million had been thrown at it, making Shenmue 3 the most funded game on Kickstarter of all time.
