Good! I will happily let these 2 years casually mosey on through. There will be Shenmue 3 coming! Better than 10 years of, "Will Shenmue 3 be at E3?" topics.

How ironic that it was E3 actually :lol:

What I'm curious to know is how involved Sony actually is in this. It's coming out on PC too, so it's not an exclusive, and it's not getting a physical console release either. Sony could have just wanted Yu to make the announcement at their presentation (it's mutually beneficial,gives Sony the hype, and gives Yu the platform). So at this stage I don't think we can rely on Sony bankrolling this further. It may well just be down to us and this Kickstarter.

Game for 2 million dollars - is a joke. Even 15 millions are not big number if we talking about AAA title. If you wanna Shenmue to be truly good game with reach enviroment, so it needs much more money. You can imagine if GTA V was like 200+ millions.

As some of you here I also teared up from happiness. I never did lose hope this day would come as long as I lived (did not add "and Shenmue's to come!" since 2003 in my Interests for no reason!).
Didn't even think twice, backed up instantly!

Over 2.5M$ already! Let's go beyond those Stretch Goals! :D

@JohnBlack

I don't think you should be expecting anything near GTA5 level production values. We all knew this would likely be a more humble affair. And it's not a joke, other games like dreamfall chapters have done a good job on less of a budget.

And anyway, we already know the 2 mill is for the bare minimum, it's made very clear if we want all the proposed locations, it's gonna need a lot more than that. I don't think there necessarily is some secret Sony deal right now, but Yu will likely be looking for some kind of additional investment, and with all the media attention, he should get it hopefully. But I don't think it's a given at this point.

Its getting quite addictive sitting on the Kick Starter page and watching the amount just go up and up!

Also really great to see the amount of news websites that are reporting on this, saw it on the BBC and Guardian websites earlier!

I wouldn't give a shit if the graphics were 100% dreamcast level. As long as the story is expanded and the gameplay is solid that's all I want

Damn... it takes a while to sink in. I was dreaming one of my many dreams of Shenmue III just a few nights ago. Like everyone else, was not expecting this. It's unreal.
This is truly an exciting time. Dreams come true. The saga actually does go on.

Dang another 100 bucks from my credit card gone. But hell yeah - i couldn't go without a boxed PC version and the beta (I hope "trial" equals "beta"...).

Awesome guys. I couldn't log into my old account. So I had to make a new one.
Man what a night and what a day. Here I was thinking about another E3 disappointment just like these 14 years.
But.... mind blown...

This is amazing, a dream come true...

Already pledged for the artbook version.

Okey people.. Who got the dinner? LOL
