Shenmue 3's official PC system requirements have been released

The Shenmue series is almost 20 years old, with the franchise dating back to SEGA's ill-fated Dreamcast console, offering visuals which were impressive at the time, but barely hold a candle to what's available today. 

Shenmue 3 is set to release on November 19th on PC and PlayStation 4, bringing the series to new graphical heights thanks to the powers of Unreal Engine 4 and the strength of today's console and PC hardware. 

As launch approaches, many PC gamers will be asking this question; is my system ready? Now we have an answer for you, as YS Net has finally released Shenmue 3's PC system requirements. 

On the CPU-side YS Net states that PC gamers should use a "quad-core or better" processor, listing their minimum processor requirement as an Intel i5-4460 while recommending an i7-7700 or better CPU. These requirements should highlight that the game needs a 4-core processor, but the i7 recommendation suggests that CPUs with higher core/thread counts will also see hardware utilisation. 

GPU-wise Shenmue 3 will be a scalable experience, listing Nvidia's GTX 650 Ti as its minimum supported graphics card and a 2GB minimum VRAM requirement. On the higher-end YS Net recommends Nvidia's GTX 1070 graphics card, though at this time it is unknown what resolution or framerate this graphics card listing targets.

Storage-wise Shenmue III will require 100GB of hard drive space, which is extremely large by today's standards. Expect to see an enormous game world that's filled with incredible amounts of detail, factors which made the original games stand out upon release.
