Fourteen years have passed since Shenmue 2 was released and not a day has gone by that hasn’t left fans wondering when — if ever — Ryo Hazuki’s saga would come to a close.
It is with a happy heart, that I can now report that as of this evening, Shenmue 3 is now live on Kickstarter. That day, the one countless video game fans have been waiting for — has finally arrived.
Revealed during Sony’s E3 presser, Shenmue 3 will continue in the tradition set forth by its predecessors. Yu Suzuki took the stage this evening and announced that not only is Shenmue 3 in development, but that its Kickstarter is now live.
Shenmue 3’s Kickstarter is asking for $2,000,000 in order to fully fun Yu Suzuki’s vision for the franchise. At the time of this post, the game has already earned $500,000. At this rate, Shenmue 3 is on pace to become the fastest — and highest — grossing campaign of all time.
Stay tuned for more Shenmue 3 information and updates as they become available.
