Honestly, it's looking wayWAY better than I anticipated! Thrilled to hear about the 7million goal has been reached. I was hoping it would - is their an official tally on the campign figure available?

Another thing to note is that there are quite a bit of "this shit will explode" objects in gaming lingo, and also a bucket with fire, do you think that the contextual battle system will grab some of those ?

Also noting that there are stairs, and YS said that the height of the battle will be important, will be able to fight there ?

Great screenshot, really hyped, REALLY.

The UI is looking good (though I still prefer the original), but they probably need to fit more information there than before.

The comment/wording in the KS update makes it seem like battling AI is almost like an add-on, will we have to modes of combat ? Like the regular and the newer "auto lock on-cinematic stuff" that YS talked about ?

Well, I'm going by my knowledge of Chinese here, but 打開 means "to open". On the right side, we have 敵, which simply means "enemy". Obviously, it just means that's that particular enemy's health bar. I do wonder about that "open" thing, though...

Anyway, this screenshot makes me really excited. It's a very simple shot of Ryo fighting some thugs, but the fact that we finally have something which looks like a videogame gameplay screenshot (HUD and all) is what makes it feel more real. Shenmue 3 is real, guys! Hurrah for that!

Has anyone tried upgrading? My survey still says I can't upgrade to anything past the 250 tier.

Sort of do hope the AI-batling/lock on (mutual exclusive?) is optional, or at least implemented to not necessarily degrade an experienced fighting gamer's gameplay style preference. Definitely not a fighting gamer, but i do absolutely love VF/Shenmue engine, which I understand and accept needs and will to be different ~20 years on, but still... Surely Suzuki's genius will make this digression moot.

Not trying to be negative. Love the screenshot and news especially about the upped survey pledging...! Still gonna do one more $60 slacker pledge, too, in a addition to an Amazon and couple GameStop pre-orders. Someone else mentioned looking like Yakuza as if a bad thing. To me, no such thing; full circle of Suzuki mentoring Nagoshi and the comparisons to Shenmue (regardless of occasionally unmerited or over stated); now Shenmue is the one invoking Yakuza 8) :mrgreen: . Plus, to me most 7th/8th gen games have somewhat similar look, anyway. Also, I'm willing to bet plenty of YS staff are former Sega and perhaps even worked on Yakuza till at least 3 or 4 or 5.

Beautiful and promising screenshot.

Wondering if this is the exact same location as the shot with Mr Muscle.

Well, we always knew upgradable pledges would bring a surge in funds, but that is an incomprehensible number..wow.

I might upgrade to the $450 tier. Does that mean you get the $300 tier also? All inclusive?

Just to better explain what I meant, here is a slightly edited photo.

But again, it's just me being super nitpicky and it's fine the way it is already. Just personal preferences. xD.

I'm about 98% sure it IS indeed the same building. My current theory is that these thugs are just the lead up to a boss fight, which is the muscle-guy.

There is a very real possibility with this momentum we could hit $7.5 and unlock the entire combat system...

Looks awesome and feels like it might be a little more action packed than we were led to believe based on the games' locales.
