1 year ago, Ys Net released the game Shenmue III, which marked the long-awaited return of the series after several years without hearing from it. At the time, it debuted with a collector’s edition that would commemorate the premiere. If you did not reach that edition, then one more is already available that includes not only the DLC that came later to the game, but also many collectibles and a few more will be available separately, which fans will not want to miss.
If you are a fan of Shenmue, but for some reason you have not had the opportunity to play the new installment, this is the best time to do so, since Ys Net and Limited Run Games announced the Shenmue III Complete Edition.
This bundle is extremely special not only because 3,000 units will be produced, but because it includes several items that fans of the series will not want to miss. The package contains the base game for PlayStation 4 with the latest patch and all the DLC on the disc, and several collectibles that we leave you below in the form of a list. This collection can now be set aside and its price is $ 149.99 USD.

In case you missed it: Yu Suzuki believes that Shenmue III will be a reality and is already thinking of several ideas.
Limited Run Games to release more Shenmue collectibles
But that is not all. If you are a fan of Shenmue, then you will be interested in reading on, as more products from the franchise will be released and will be available for a very limited time and once they are sold out, no more will be produced.
Various sets from the Shenmue III soundtrack can now also be pre-ordered on the Limited Run Games site. The most basic includes a selection of 33 tracks recorded on 2 LP vinyl records ($ 39.99 USD) and includes codes to download the tracks and notes from Yu Suzuki and other members of the series community. If you prefer CDs, then you will be interested in the Definitive Soundtrack Complete Collection ($ 49.99 USD), which includes 6 CDs in their respective case and a package that holds all of them, as well as Suzuki notes.

If you have already played the title and liked the soundtrack, you may want to have the set of 5 vinyl LPs (Bailu Village, $ 124.99 USD) and another with 6 vinyl LPs (Niaowu, $ 149.99 USD) that include all the songs of the first and second half of Shenmue III, respectively. If you decide to buy both, you could opt for a bundle with all vinyl records ($ 299.99 USD) that come in amazing covers that are also packed in a box with new illustrations by Kenji Miyawaka who worked on the original series.

The coolest bundle for fans of Shenmue and Yu Suzuki’s work is definitely the Signed Edition, which is just like the one above, but also includes an A4 size poster with the signature of Shenmue creator Yu Suzuki. This bundle is sold for $ 349.99 USD and you must hurry if you want one, as only 375 units will be produced.
Finally, we inform you that, if you only want the boxes of the 2 packages of the vinyl records (Bailu Village and Niaowu, without the records), it is possible to buy both for $ 34.99 USD. Also available is a package that includes the collector’s edition and the package with the 11 vinyl records and is sold for $ 449.99, but at the time of writing there were only 4 units left.
