The Last Guardian? Final Fantasy VII Remake? And now Shenmue 3? I don’t think my heart can take it, but this press conference is indeed happening. Yu Suzuki came out on stage, announced that he was doing a Kickstarter for Shenmue 3, and everyone did a big happy countdown to get it started.
I guess Sony felt bad for killing off the Dreamcast before Shenmue could wrap up its story. This is its way of saying “sorry.”
Head on over to the Kickstarter page to get more information and pledge. Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night just secured $5.5 million, becoming the largest game in the website’s history. I wonder if Shenmue 3 can rival that.
Suzuki is looking to secure $2 million in financing, and the game will be aiming for a PC and PlayStation 4 release. The kickstarter page is currently timed out, so my guess is we’ll have no problem making Shenmue 3 a reality.
