It's funny how people used to go on about how they would be content about getting a book to finish the story yet now that they're getting an actual game they're whining about some placeholder character models.

Still have 31 days to go. Hopefully we can hit the stretch goals.


Yea, I fear we won't get to 4 million. 4 million stretch goal is the one we as fans would want most, more ground to cover and more mini games!


But that's not even close to being their final stretch goal...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czh4RcR3iRM

According to that promo vid 3 areas will be made available to the stretch goals,expansion of Baisha at 4M,then Choubu and Bailu Village,not sure if those are additional expansions or are added altogether stretch goals,however i hope they start adding them soon because the funds will stop coming in without any meaningful reasons to add funding .

I'm personally hoping for a ps4 physical copy reward but i don't think it's going to happen as sony actually want to make money on this deal so they are only offering a pc physical copy reward.

Don't worry about this not making 4 million,it's almost at 3...i would seriously believe shenmue 3 is going to be the most successful project on kickstarter...shenmue I&II Hd remasters are probably going to come in last at an extra million or two...SEGA is starting to see the real potential of their abandoned IP...i hope

I haven't posted in some time but when I heard the news I nearly screamed in excitement, had to withhold it though, but I just put down 100 bucks.

Oh yeah I completely agree. My post wasn't really a complaint. Just hopes moving forward. Like I said I'm actually okay with the new look/style they're going for.

Well damn.

I checked these forums maybe once a month, but it's been so long since I signed in I'm pretty sure I lost my old account, not even sure what e-mail it's attached to.

I think I actually teared up a bit when I saw it and heard the music, my wife just didn't understand haha.

My only regret is that I didn't get in on the kickstarter fast enough to get that jacket.

My brother and I opened the $250 bottle of Johnny Walker Blue tonight to celebrate. We are both 35 and don't play games much anymore. That is about to change.

The last time we played Shenmue we found this glitch 5 years ago. It's our one claim to fame in the Shenmue World. O:) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExFfHciRSFA

It's the same TV in the background of the picture as the video..

I'd love for you to go to a bar, have someone question you as to why you're celebrating, and you answer "we're excited that a 14 year old videogame is finally getting the sequel it deserves after so much waiting".

We will be so excited that they will want to buy the game as well, even if they are not a gamer.

EDIT: Just found out that it will come to the PC, my favorite platform. Holy shit, donating my $100 right now.

We'll definitely do it soon though!


Same again, if you guys were to do a meet up I'd possibly come along if it was somewhere in the north (Manchester, Sheffield, etc.)
