We can do this!

That gives us plenty of room for the final rush of pledges!

As of now:

51,383 backers

I'm sure it will slow down a bit, but we still must be able to reach the next stretch goal before the weekend. Then, we will have tough battle ahead of us of reaching the character perspective system. It's a big gap.

That won't be a tough battle at all. Kickstarter's always have huge peaks in activity towards the end.

I hope/think it'll get somewhere between 6 and 7.5 m, I'm hoping for some fighting improvements

the new extra tiers didn't really give the pledge total a boost today, looks like we will hit around the same as yesterday (80k-ish).. and the only reason we haven't dropped back down to 15k a day is because that PS4 physical tier still has some serious legs. its been our savior really and what made 5 million a possibility (rather than just hobbling past 4 million)

To keep this in perspective however; to hit 5 million we need to maintain above 60k a day... which basically means the pace we currently have can't slow down, at all.. how likely is that?.. I worry.

and don't rely on a surge at the end, every kick starter that had a surge at the end was directly linked to the KS company actively and aggressively engaging media outlets and social media, Awesome Japan has thus far only engaged backers.. so a surge at the end of our KS is not 100% assured...

however if we do get a surge at the end, they really need to rearrange those stretch goals, that 900k gap will reduce whatever surge we get because people on the fence won't think their pledge will make a difference.

I think it's interesting to see what The Bard's Tale IV is doing as a reference point. That videogame is a sequel as well and it's now entering it's final days now.

I really think they are missing a trick by not adding Chinese subtitles as a stretch goal at 5.2 million. Personally I think this would push us into 5 million really quickly and give us a chance at passing bloodstained..

Chinese cannot even donate because there's no pay pal option.

does kick starter not accept credit cards from Chinese residents? people in mainland china and taiwan have been asking for chinese language options in the game quite frequently.

I agree with Rigor that the 5.1-6m gap will discourage last day backers, i tweeted Cedric today saying to add a goal in there, even if its just something stupid, people need the carrot.

We must get 6m goal at least!

I'm happy with 5 million game wise, but I really want to beat bloodstained because if Shenmue can take the "most funded" kick starter title from bloodstained it might open lots of other possibilities, such as SEGA removing their head from own ass and releasing Shenmue 1 & 2 HD (thus helping possible post KS pledges and the final sales of Shenmue 3 at retail, which in turn will help Shenmue 4)

I'd like to think the gap is there deliberately to be filled.... But we'll see.

I think there's realistically only 2 things now that would see a surge in funding- Xbox One version and PayPal.

Neither are happening (at least not before the end of the campaign in the case of PayPal) so let's just target 5 and anything else is a bonus.
