Shenmue 3 was announced today during the press conference of Sony. Yu Suzuki asked the support of the fans through the Kickstarter with the goal of 2million for a month. Well..... the game didn''t need so much time since it already hit that number becoming the fastest Kickstarter project of doing it (in 8 hours). Other info. People are speculating that there are more companies (or a company) funding the game since the goal of 2 million is too low for a game like this (the first Shenmue costed something like 30million)

- 2017 release it looks like according to Kickstarter
- Playstation 4/ PC
- Unreal Engine 4
- Yu Suzuki / Ys Net

BTW someone should make a Last Guardian thread. Come on guys i can't be the one making all the threads right? Mods will ban me :lol:

EDIT: Damn this just hit me. I never thought i will make the Shenmue 3 announcement thread.

Im part of the reason kickstarter broke, no regrets.

It reached its funding goal in 8 hours?!

Jeez, that countdown on-stage was no joke! :cringe: And here I honestly wondered if it would be a surprising flop.

Something really great about Kickstarter, it's a great way to prove beyond the shadow of any stodgy out-of-touch executive's doubt that the fans really care and would totally throw their money at the product. :lol:

Now if there would be one for Megaman Legends 3...

I never played Shenmue 2, but the first Shenmue remains firmly lodged in the fond memories of my adolescence. I used to play it late at night, when I was still in middle or high school and thus totally should not have been up and so I did it very quietly in the basement with the lights off. It was like nothing else I'd played before or since.

I hope this sequel does those memories justice, while avoiding the worst pitfalls of the original (like those damn QTEs :lol:).

Awesome. Even though I never played 1 or 2, I'm really happy for all the fans that this is finally being made. I may have to check the Shenmue series out myself.

If you're talking about the third one, it's not out yet. As for the other two, haven't played them myself but I hear they're quite good.
Is the 3.0 spoiler policy gone?.... Cool, then I'm nominating myself as EvaGeeks 1# Sakura Suzuhara fan/nerd.

I mean, predictability is the central attraction and the narrative hook that we've all come to expect from the Evangelion franchise. How come Anno can't realize this? Twice? - FreakyFilmFan4ever
