My conversation with my wife went something like:

Me: "I know money is tight, but there's a Kickstarter for Shenmue 3. I've waited almost 15 years for this, and..."
Her: "It's Shenmue 3, I understand."
Me: "Uh, I'm leaning toward the $300 or $500. Probably $500, because..."
Her: "It's Shenmue 3. I understand. Really."

I couldn't convince her of the $10,000 dinner with Yu Suzuki, but, you know, can't win 'em all! \:D/

the dinner and jacket are sold out anyways, but cool that she's so understanding. I'll have kinda discussion with my wife about the 100 bucks when she comes back from Japan... XD

Shenmue's popular again. Sell your mirror as "100% official extremely rare Japan-only merchandise" on ebay and you should be good.

Mine's kinda the same way. She understands completely.

Now...I hate to be "that guy" because I'm as pumped as everyone else, but does anyone think this will this be the completion of the story? It seems like a very short continuation of the story without the later chapters we expected.

Can't wait to see all the characters in next gen graphics!

But the question is.....will Shenmue 3 finish the story, or will we have to hope it makes enough money to get funding for for Shenmue 4?

Ahhh yeah the mirrors. Still got that Phoenix mirror. Does anyone actually have an antique dragon mirror? Some ebay user named "lanDiSama" bought all of them i guess?

I've asked this question in the Kickstarter page. So please everyone ask this too.

Q: Budget and money are the main problems... If you ever reach your goal and gather enough money to create Shenmue III, do you think that you will be able to conclude the story? Knowing that Shenmue's story is very deep and seems to be far away from its conclusion.

Yu Suzuki : Yes indeed, the story is far away from being completed and to be honest, I do not think that it's possible to end it during Shenmue III. If I had to do it my way, players would experience the ending during Shenmue V. But that seems to be a lot so I'm going to try to finish it within the next 2 games.

Words cannot describe how happy I am to see this revival of the site and our beloved Shenmue. Wow, is this real? It's been a life time it feels like...

I'm already going to get it for everyone for Christmas 2017. "Merry Christmas, Grandma! No, it's pronounced 'Shin-moo.' No you can't play it on the Game Boy, but hey, I'm proud you know what that is. Just say thanks and open someone else's gift already. I've got to get back to the house to play mine."

I think at this point he already had the OK from Sega and the Kickstarter organized. It was such a bold statement to mention a follow-up to a game none of us thought would ever be released. Anytime before that any publishers would have thought "You know what, if it's still not done after 3, I think we'll pass on funding 3. Try Konami, we hear they're into innovative console gaming right now. Just look at PT. Boy, what a moneymaker!"

They said when the first Shenmue game came out that they were planning on making around 8 games i think because the story was so big so i really hope Shenmue 3 wont be the last game in the series so they will need to rush everything because they only got 3 games instead of 8 and i also really hope we will get a box and disc version for the PS4.
