Shenmue III Wants Too Much of Your Hard Drive Space to Be Played

We have a bit of interesting and shocking news out of the latest update to Shenmue III, as the developers have launched a survey about the game. The crew from Ys Net posted a new update today that included a bit of information for the backers and directed them to a survey about the game. However, in the process, they revealed two key elements. The first being footage from the game, which we have for you below as it shows a more updated version of the upcoming title. The second, which is apparently pissing people off, is that it was revealed the game is going to be 100GB large when you look at the system requirements for PC.

Shenmue 3

We're already living in a world where games are taking up that much with all of their updates and DLC combined. Now we're looking at the very real fact that the devs couldn't make this game work on PC for anything less than what could be anywhere from 1/10 to 1/2 of your hard drive space just to own it. And by the way, that's what they refer to as the minimum requirements for Shenmue III, meaning there's probably more on the way for bonus game content.
