Great to finally see some properly animated and voiced characters. Just a bit further to reach actual game cutscenes and then gameplay!

Damn, I wanted to go up to the $500 tier from $300. Oh well. Maybe they'll add it last minute.


So if $7 million isn't reached, we won't get the AI Battling system? Does that mean despite all the additional funds DS plugged in we only get the features up to the KS amount? Feelsweirdman.

I thought they were gonna add more. Meh. Should still be good.

Character looks way better and that's still with a 2019 release coming.

I thought the same thing about the whole stretch gpal and funding situation. All I can guess is that they're using the extra funding to refine and widen the scope of the game within the remit of the original stretch goal vision (I.e. instead of using DS's extra funding to reach the other stretch goals, they're using it to expand on characters, adding detail to the world and makin the game feel more open world and alive).

Based on what we know, Deep Silver's cash injection was mostly for greatly expanding Choubu and its game content. I remember Yu saying "maybe" about expanding the battle system too, but that's all.

I'm in two minds whether they're just keeping up the veneer of stretch goals mattering just to hit them as symbolic milestones, but at the same time... implementing features, even if they've done R&D on them, needs developers, and they cost money unless you pull them off some other part of the game. It'd be really nice to see a push to make it happen. The feature (as properly explained by Yu in 2015) sounds like a cool way to keep the combat dynamic based on character positioning.

$100,000 is a steep hill to climb but... we might make it.

I was gonna do the same. The game looks amazing. It feels more and more like Shenmue.

I've noticed something about the survey, if you do have more than one order using the same e-mail the survey of each order will be sent to you all together in a single mail.

Just the PlayStation digital download for me. A steal for £26.

Suzuki spoke about the relationship between Deep Silver's funding and the Kickstarter stretch goals in the first answer of this interview.

The description of the AI Battling system in the new update gives me the impression it's an optional mode that lets inexperienced players essentially button mash their way through fights without having to input the right combos at the right time. If I've interpreted that correctly, which I may not have, then it adds clarity to previous comments about making the combat more accessible, as seemingly this would apply to the proposed AI Battling or "easy mode" rather than the default system.

I tried to get my survey early by using the resend survey option. Now when I click on the 'Your Survey Page' all I see is a message 'You need to complete your survey.' and the Upgrade options. Am I missing something really obvious :D ? How do I get the survey?

The survey itself comes after you've choosed whether or not to upgarde your pledge. You can also review your choice after completing the survey. I assume that option will stay active until the survey is closed (September 30, 2018).

I'm not sure if that's 100% the right interpretation based on Yu's explanation of the system in 2015, but I do agree it sounds optional and that a manual way to pull off the techniques described is probably available.

Is anybody able to confirm for me whether you can go back and upgrade your pledge after completion of the survey? Or does completing the survey lock that in? Cheers!

It's happening! I can't believe it. Shenmue 3 is getting closer day by day. Here's what I'm hoping and predicting:

Shenmue I&II HD trailer or release date annoucement happening next week on July 3rd. Could even be both.
Shenmue 3 at Gamescom with a big trailer and gameplay.
Shenmue 3 at Gamescom but not a big trailer.

I also think they are saving the facial experssions for the trailer. Makes sense as to why they would.
