That GT reaction was me 3 am in the morning ,


I would love to see them add a ps4 disc release , even if in limited numbers like the retro City rampage game .
Surely 1+2 hd will be coming in the lead up to this ?


Backed $300 but I want the ps4 version will I have to buy another backing to get the digital of that for $29? Or will it come with the collectors signed set ?
Exciting times :)

I guess the stars exploded into a supernova and just jumped to III.

That's all dependent on what the original budget was used on. Research, investments in new technology, the time it took to do either one, ect.

Any other time I'd feel like ashamed for nearly crying like a bitch but I'll make an exception for this time. I'm so damn happy U_u it feels like a dream.

Actually the Kicktarter goal is about 10% of the money needed to create the game (taking as example the recently funded Bloodstained). The campaign is ultimately used to show interest from the public to the actual investors. Fans are being shown a budget that doesn't line up with the reality of game development, and it's skewing the public perception of what a game actually costs. So the thing is, this game is expensive and the more successful this campaign becomes, more money will be thrown on the production of the game by its investors (Ysnet and Sega(?))

Sony will probably footing the bill.

Shenmue - SEGA Dreamcast
Shenmue II - Microsoft Xbox
Shenmue III - Sony PS4

Now only if Shenmue IV came out on a Nintendo console, we'd come full circle.

$2 million is likely not enough to make Shenmue 3. Why do a lot of people on here assume that just because they have a $2 million goal through the kickstarter, that that's all they plan to put into it? C'mon guys, it's Shenmue we're talking about here! Yu Suzuki and his partners/sponsors obviously plan on spending a lot more than that! I think the $2 million is just a way for them to test the waters and make sure that there's a strong enough fan support base to ensure that making Shenmue 3 will be worthwhile. Obviously, almost meeting the $2 million goal in under 24 hours says it all! But that $2 million or more that the kickstarter generates will likely go a long way to help fund the game and possibly convince them to add more features or even possibly release a remake of the first two games!

On a completely different note, I couldn't help but wonder what Microsoft is likely thinking right now! I'm a huge Xbox fan, but I'll admit they made a huge error in judgement by publicly announcing awhile back that they have zero interest in the Shenmue franchise. I bet those clowns are having second thoughts now, seeing as how Shenmue 3 is breaking a record on kickstarter! Well, it's their loss! Me, along with many other Shenmue fans plan on buying a brand new PC or PS4 just to play Shenmue 3! They dissed my favorite video game franchise of all time, which is just another reason why I don't plan on buying an Xbox One! Idiots!
