Shenmue 3 update finally lets you skip conversations

We just received news that Shenmue 3’s first downloadable content “Battle Rally” would be coming soon, and now there’s been a new update that is sure to please some players.

One point of annoyance for people playing Shenmue 3 is that you couldn’t skip conversations, but this latest update fixes that, and you are now able to skip them altogether. It’s really nice when you’ve already spoken to the same person and don’t have to wait for them to finish their blabbering.

Shenmue 3 was released on Nov. 19, 2019, on the PlayStation 4 and PC. You can read our review of the game here.
