Now it's official, Sony is funding it, KS was just to gauge fan reactions

The streaming was a bit puzzling for one thing: Suzuki implied you don't need to have played I and II to enjoy Shenmue III... That's like telling me you can enjoy MGS4 without 1-2-3.

Shocking news.

As if anyone believed that 2 million is enough.

Ok I think I should hit ebay and finally get that Dreamcast I've always dreamed of. I only played the second game on the XBox because I never actually owned the DC but hot damn am I hyped about this.

Had the same thought. But I am going to wait. Maybe Yu or Sony will be able to pull S1+2 out of Sega's ass for a remaster.

$2.7 million in 2 days has got to be some kind of record. And it's still rising though not as fast. I wouldn't be surprised if they ended with over 5 million.

And yeah, nobody dreamed the Kickstarter alone was going to cut it. I bet even Square-Enix's smartphone games cost more than 2 mil to develop.

So since there's a PC version, will the PC version be DRM-Free?

Alright so new word is out, according to Yu Suzuki himself majority of the funding for this game still relies on Kickstarter donation from fans. Sony's monetary support on this doesn't seem to be as extensive as people originally assumed, possibly only covering publishing and marketing and some extra.

Spoiler for size for info:


Long story short, 2 million is the bare minimum to get the main story. In truth to realize his true vision it would take 10 million, which is impossible for a kickstarter. Most people estimate 5 million would be what we end up with.

Essentially, the fight isn't over yet.

What he should have done was ask for $4 million right off the bat. The initial surge would have met that goal, then all the stragglers would tack on an extra million and the basic stretch goals would be achieved. As it stands now, it'll be lucky to even rub up against Bloodstained's total by the end.

- He's asked about whether he has an idea in his head about what'll come after Shenmue 3's done (presumably 4, but it doesn't come out and say this). He says he does, but right now he's focused on working on Shenmue 3. Certainly doesn't sound like this game will be 'it' at any rate.
No, this has to be it. He's not going to get another opportunity like this again without major outside funding. The fanbase has waited long enough, they deserve closure.

Isn't too early to count the chickens at this point? There's still a good 20+ days until the Kickstarter ends and it's already sitting at 3.5mil. These things tend to slow down around the middle of the funding period and pick up steam towards the end as more people make their last minute decisions.

On a new update Ys Net has shed some light on how the game is being handled. It's still rather opaque but they claim that Shibuya Productions is handling "the production and marketing end, and in Sony’s case with some publishing support as well". Doesn't really clear much of anything up but we can probably guess that Sony and Shibuya are financing marketing and Sony is handling console publishing. Those at least are fair to say.

New stretch goal update posted, it's official: Yu Suzuki is absolutely insane.

Maybe the hidden stretch goal is the infamous forklift race

All those stretch goals give me a feeling that Sony announced S3 just for show

But it would be good if it just fake goals - Sony will fund them anyway. But I doubt.

The stream's volume was so low I couldn't watch it- I don't dare turn up my volume for fear of a stupid ad coming on. A lot of people vented about the host, but I couldn't really tell what was going on.

The kickstarter has ended, man time sure flies I still vividly remember the moment Shenmue 3 was announced at E3

$6.3m is not so bad, eh?

So here's an interesting bit of rumor/potential news:

Shenmue HD Remaster coming in 2017

Quote:
A trusted source close to Atlus USA, today revealed to me that Shenmue HD Remaster will be released this year. Both games, Episodes 1 & 2, may be released together rather than separately. They are presumably being geared up for launch to precede Shenmue 3, which could possibly slip into 2018.
