Hello Everyone,

We are at the one year anniversary from the day you all stood up and made Shenmue III a reality. So to mark the occasion, Yu-san wanted to take this opportunity to look back at the project thus far.

Thank you all for wonderful first year!

Survey Outlook

We have been receiving a lot questions about surveys lately, so here is where we stand now.

Surveys have NOT been sent. A date for the surveys has not been decided, and is still a ways off.

Because this is such an important part of the backer process, an official announcement will made on the Kickstarter Update page and in the news section on shenmue.link. The announcement will also be posted on Twitter at @Shenmue_3, so be sure to follow us!

On the survey, you will confirm all of your reward details (platform choice, T-shirt size, etc.) and shipping information. Please look ahead to coming updates for more information!


Edit: Found a higher quality video on the Shenmue.link page but cannot embed it here -

So great to see an update even if there is little info but Yu seems very happy with the progress, and that passes down to me as a fan. Hopefully they will upload this video to the official youtube channel as well, as the kickstarter quality seems to be pretty bad lol I wanna see Shenhua's House in HD!

"It's Better Than Nothing" - Awesome Japan. Better late than never I suppose!

Very info-light update, but no biggie. Makes sense they want to hold back showing the game for a little while longer still.

Just found the highest quality for the video on the Shenmue.link site. Looks so much better so would recommend watching it there. Cannot embed it in the forum though. Link here:

Part of me wants to see them go to town with red herrings in the background of their photos and videos, like casually slipping the Japanese script for "Kazuma Kiryu" into a spidergram of character names on a whiteboard. :P

Great update!

Good to know that the game is really starting to come together!

I'm damn sure that by the end of this year they'll have a solid build of the game to show.

I am happy with the progress they have been making at this time. At this rate, I still have positive expectations for the final product. I am happy that the Unreal Engine 4 has given AM2 the opportunity to re-visit Shenmue in faith to the original game at a much cheaper price

Though I would assume a handful of AM2 alumni are working on the project through Neilo Inc.
