After angering diehard Steam users by moving Shenmue 3 to the Epic Games Store, it appears that the hotly anticipated action-adventure game will have regional pricing. The Shenmue 3 PC India price is $20 for the standard edition (around Rs. 1400) and $26 (close to Rs. 1815) for the deluxe edition. Considering that most big budget AAA games have veered towards the Rs. 2499 to Rs. 3499 price tag on PC, this should allow PC fans to rest easy. Publisher Deep Silver employed a similar pricing strategy for Metro Exodus, though that probably didn’t cost as much to make as Shenmue 3 did. Here’s what you get with either version of Shenmue 3 on PC.

The Shenmue 3 release date is November 19, 2019. So far it’s coming to the PS4 and PC with a possible Xbox One release down the line.
“Shenmue 3 for PC will be will be an Epic Games Store exclusive. Development for Shenmue 3 has been moving forward using Unreal Engine and the support we have received from Epic has been excellent. But most importantly, in looking for the most enjoyable experience on PC, it was decided together with Deep Silver after much discussion that the Epic Games Store would be the best distribution platform option,” reads a Kickstarter post from Shenmue 3 developer Ys Net.
There’s no telling if it would hit Steam at a later date. Metro Exodus, which was also published by Deep Silver was pulled from Steam and would reappear a year after launch. Perhaps a similar deal was struck for Shenmue 3.
Shenmue 3 was one of the major announcements for Sony at E3 2015 alongside Final Fantasy VII Remake.
