Shenmue 3 will finally arrive next week, so here’s the launch trailer.

The launch trailer for Shenmue 3 has dropped, giving you a look at what to expect when the game releases next week.

It’s been a long time coming, as Ys Net took to Kickstarter back in summer 2015 to fund the project.

It eventually became the most-backed game ever on Kickstarter, beating out long-time record holder Torment: Tides of Numenera.

It hasn’t been without its share of controversy though, as it was originally slated to arrive on PC through Steam before becoming an Epic Games Store exclusive. The team at Ys Net said it would do its best to give backers a Steam key in lieu of the Epic Games Store should negotiations with Valve work out. Because of the store switch, the developer released a survey offering backers a refund.

The game releases November 19 for PC and PS4.
