Its better if they do graphic more sharp. Like in I or II parts. Even if it wont look really great, still it will be more shenmue-like.

If they continue posting good updates and update stretch goals, I can see them making 5 million.

To celebrate the announcement, I've decided to relaunch the podcast.
Everyone check it out and enjoy.
I hope to expand and make it a real community venture.

I wonder if there is another way of us helping the development of the game besides donating.

There are talented shenmue fans out there (see the HD fanmade project) that could be extra working men for programming and design.

I don't think that a game like this will allow strangers to peek at the game.

But UE blueprint system is awesome, and a lot of people could contribute, sadly I don't think it's going to happen.

But there'll be mods, be assured.

No amateur work please. Would you really prefer fan work over the staff Yu Suzuki handpicked, which btw includes part of the original staff that worked on the first two games?

What we need is MONEY... It speaks louder than anything. I'm selling part of my music and game collection to back this even more... Besides still spreading the word around and explaining again and again to people that without reaching those $4 mil we won't have their much requested Shenmue 1&2 HD/ PS4 physical copies. License fees are a bitch.

PS. I created a topic a while back then for ideas to help the campaign... here... I will help out as much as I can if anyone has more ideas, as this is the most passionate crowdfunding project I've ever backed, and I'm feeling a bit of unrest for this damn $4mil that don't come fast enough.

The two million collected should be only a small part of the final budget of the game - the previous Shenmue had cost tens of dollars millilons. Sony declined to clarify whether it could take on the role of editor of the project, but is committed to "support" Shenmue III. Raised on the exact meaning of this support, Mr. House said that Sony "will finance" the game. If the budget is unknown, no doubt he will exceed by far the amount collected on KickStarter.

It'll 100% reach all of it's currently listed stretch goals, but then they'll list more stretch goals, presumably including the required amount for the extended Bailu Village and Choubu areas. That'll hopefully help to maintain donation momentum!

Also in that French interview that just came out Suzuki stated an arcade is a stretch goal, and in the PlayStation blog post he mentioned something about the FREE battle system or a FREE battle extra as another goal. Maybe these will be combined with one of the area stretch goals like the mini-games are for the expanded Baisha village? Who knows, I'm guessing they'll go up to at least $5.5 mill for stretch goals after the success of Bloodstained.

This makes me wonder how much Sony are actually going to be backing the game.

On one hand, I get that they've said Kickstarter was a way of asking the fans to put their money where their mouth is, but on the other hand, the fact that Free Battles, Subtitles etc. are being thrown around as possible stretch goals may mean that Sony aren't going to be backing it as much as we think. Surely those kinda features would be givens for a Shenmue game with comfortable financial support?
