Just thought I'd get this out there, as Shenmue III's Steam entry is getting a lot of work done to it behind the scenes, a set of placeholder achievements are now visible on SteamDB.

Right now they're not terribly spoilery, but that could change very quickly as the list grows and they get final names.

Here's the list of achievements so far:

Yep - it's pretty much go time now.

Activity on SteamDB has been increasingly frequent since the start of the year. Some of it has been the preparatory work for launch and opening pre-orders, but the vast majority have been general changes to the application that in all likelihood are build updates.

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't place holder achievements for Shenmue I and II also get exposed before it released? Does anyone know or remember how accurate they were to the final achievement list?

Kinda hoping for some screen dumps, but that is quite rare.

100% the same (except, of course, the placeholder names were replaced with finalised names). The Achievements data is taken directly from Steam, so this is the real deal.

There are achievements for clearing Bailu and Niaowu, but not Baisha? I actually can't find any references to Baisha in there...

I guess that's because finishing Baisha leads to unlocking the final achievement.

1 : clear_hakkason
2: clear_chobu
3: complete


Same thing goes for the achievement crude_drug_all after crude_drug_hakkason & crude_drug_chobu.


Baisha confirmed ;)

It feels like a dream. 4 years after announcement and 17 years of hoping for a Shenmue III we are looking forward to the release of Shenmue III.

The Achievements have also appeared on completionist.me in an easier-to-read format, right here.

Also, I wonder if the "hide_and_seek" Achievement is related to the single event in which the Character Perspective system is utilised?
