Shenmue 3 appears at Sony’s E3 2015 press conference, launches Kickstarter

Shenmue is just one of those game franchises that make all SEGA fans sequel in delight, talk to any of the fans that played them and they’ll go on for hours about what makes the franchise so great. This year at Sony’s E3 2015 conference, Yu Suzuki announced that they will be doing a Shenmue 3 kickstarter and you can fund it right now! The budget of the game via the kickstarter is only 2 million dollars, so chances of reaching it are very high (since its at 150k right now and it hasn’t even been an hour!). But 2 million dollars seems a bit low of a budget and it also seems to have a new character models that seem out of place. This is obviously very early assets that will hopefully change down the road. The game will also be developed by Yu Suzuki’s new studio called Ys Net. It seems that the project will only be available on Playstation 4 and PC.

Regardless you can fund the game and enjoy some of the rewards offered. $500 dollars gets you a set of capsule toys, who doesn’t like capsule toys? Are you guys excited for Shenmue III? Let us know in the comments.

    Finally we are getting Shenmue 3.
    the question now is does sega still holds the IP.
    and can we expect maybe a panzer dragon anytime soon.

  3. I pledged my $29.00. 🙂

    Thank for answering my question. Do you think we will see other sega titles that are going to use the kickstarter. And when the kickstarter campaign succeed do you think it will open sega’s eyes to be more aggressive regarding what they are putting out there on the market. .. and maybe really going to listen to there fan base?
    Because if they don’t do it there will be less food on the table for them.
    ( As for me I will fund the project… I hope I can buy the capsule toys separately)

    Yes finally shenmue 3 … (shampoo 3 …lol)

    I agree with mr. George
    $2 milion is way too low for a franchise that held the “most expensive game production” label for some while.

  11. Saturn Boy says:
