SHENMUE 3 Kickstarter Breaks Records
Well, the Kickstarter is over and many fans are waiting for Yu Suzuki and company to set up a PayPal donation site so that more funding can be gathered, but it is official – we are getting Shenmue 3.
The series, which has been in hibernation for the better part of 14 years, is one of the most beloved in all of gaming and boasts a rabid army of fans who have been dying to get their hands on a third title ever since that weird cave scene that concluded the second game.
After raising its base target in less than 24 hours, becoming the fastest videogame to break the million dollar barrier in Kickstarter’s history, Shenmue 3 went on to collect more than $6.3 million. This makes it the most highly-funded videogame ever to be put on the platform.
Of course, we are still going to have to wait until the tail end of 2017 to see a finished product, but there is finally a light at the end of the tunnel for Shenmue fans.
