Recall that the Shenmue games tell the story of the adventures of a young man Ryo Hazuki, who witnesses the murder of his father and devotes his life to training and finding a criminal.

The unveiled video lasts a little over a minute and, using the example of several fights, demonstrates Ryo’s fighting abilities to the accompaniment of a voiceover retelling the beginning of the show.

It was previously reported that Shenmue the Animation is directed by Chikara Sakurai, while Shenmue creator Yu Suzuki is serving as Executive Producer.

As it became known, the premiere of Shenmue the Animation is expected in 2022. The show will offer 13 episodes in total. Responsible for production is Telecom Animation Film (Tower of God, Lupine III: Part V).
