*The Slacker Backer campaign and upgrades & add-ons through Fangamer will end on August 13th.

 

Battle System Expanded: AI Battling

This control system lets you automatically unleash the perfect technique in response to the opponent's positioning and distance. R&D for this system is based on Yu Suzuki's concept for players who are not used to fighting games or for those who want a full immersion battle experience. This battle system is highly compatible with the current battle system, and will be implemented upon reaching the stretch goal.

We would like to thank everyone for your patience and the inquiries you sent in anticipation of the survey roll out!

Once we have your responses in, we will continue to move forward with in-game implementation and manufacture ordering. This is a wonderful moment with the dev team and backers taking the project forward together! We'll be looking forward to your responses!!

Lol I was so busy reading the survey instructions that I didn't even look notice there was a video, I thought it was an image, and even then I didn't even focus my eyes on it... Paddy had to point it out to me lol

Looks and sounds great! All starting to feel so real now!! Little confused about the upgrades on the survey (as I want to upgrade a little bit to the Guest Book tier, but it seems as if the $250 tier is the top?) so have emailed them to see if there is any way to do it.

Looks like we are getting all the Shenmue news these days! Very excited for the Survey, the stream tonight and then of course the announcement on the 3rd :D

I missed the video too! It looks amazing.

Are we supposed to have already received our surveys? I haven't yet.

Anyways, sounds like they're gearing up for some big announcements post August :D It's such an exciting time to be a Shenmue 3. It seems we will finally see gameplay and a new trailer (hopefully at Gamescom) and might even get a release date soon (or at the least a release date for the demo).

I haven't yet either. I think it said they'll all be sent within 10 days.

Edit: it says within 10 days from the date of your pledge. Which is a bit weird.

That ten days from within your pledge bit is for slacker backers pledging from now until the August 13th deadline when the service closes.

The little girl, actually, the entire video looks great!!
Chai is also there btw, although the cute little girl will probably take all the attention. :heart: :heart: :heart:

I reckon it's getting to the point where we need to start using spoiler tags. And by "we" I mean "you lot".

Very quick reply from Joel about my upgrade question:

"Hello Tim,

Currently, upgrades only go up to the $250 level, however, if there are any changes to available upgrades we will have it in the update.

Please be patient, as higher level upgrades may be made available at a later date.

Best Regards,
Joel & the Shenmue III Team"

Kinda strange that they are not offering the higher tiers, but I guess there must be more work involved in making the chibi figures and stuff. No idea why I pledged in between 2 tiers but hopefully I will be able to bump it up at a later date.

Christ, they weren't being at all cryptic with ol' Purple Gollum, were they? :)

The game is looking great; I hope they do more updates in this style. Really refreshing!

SEGA Europe are teasing a Shenmue related announcement for the 3rd. Possibly a release date and/or new trailer for Shenmue HD.

By the way, if you haven't received your survey yet (they're going out in waves) but don't want to wait, go to https://fulfillment.fangamer.com/kindling/shenmue3/survey_support, enter the email you used to pledge, and you'll get it immediately.
