Fancy a Lift? Shenmue 3 See’s Return of Forklift Trucks

Posted April 12, 2019 by Richard Lee Breslin in Gaming News, PC, PS4, Screenshots

Are you a Shenmue fan that is perhaps feeling down in the dumps?  Perhaps you need a pick me up or even a lift?  Well my friend, you’re in luck because Shenmue 3 will see the return of the forklift truck!

Driving a forklift truck and having a job down at the docks during the original Shenmue was a truly iconic moment for the series (I know that sounds crazy to those that have never played Shenmue before).  However, getting a job driving a forklift was absent in Shenmue 2 and fans more than noticed that exclusion.

Thankfully it has been confirmed that forklifts are returning for Shenmue 3 and you will be able to get an in-game job driving everyone’s favourite industrial vehicle.  The news was confirmed via the recently released screenshot, as found above.

So rejoice friends, as we’ll soon be able to update our real-world CV’s with our recent forklift driving activities and hopefully with a bit of luck, our new boss will allow us to race our forklift trucks before we clock into work.

Shenmue 3 is currently scheduled to release for PC and PlayStation 4 on August 27th.
