After nearly two decades following Shenmue II‘s 2001 release, the series focusing on the adventures of a young martial artist seeking revenge finally saw its return to action with Shenmue III. While the game has an assortment of tasks to distract yourself with, the developers have plans for a new DLC to add in even more to do.
As the first post-launch update for the Shenmue series, the upcoming Battle Rally DLC will add in a new event for Ryo and his friends to take part in. Releasing on January 21 for $8 (players who own the collector’s edition will get it as a free-update) the event is a competitive combat race, which puts places the protagonist in ancient relay race where he’ll have to maintain a steady pace against his opponents. Along the way, he’ll face off against foes in hand-to-hand combat to progress to the next part of the race.
