    I was surprised to see no one has posted the news about Shenmue yet!

    Shenmue 3 is confirmed, with Sony as a backer. Although the kickstarter was off to a good start, Yu Suzuki's studio still needs additional funding to make the game better. If interested, please show your support at the link on the bottom of the page.

    Here is what we're looking at:

    Clearly, the more money we raise the better a game we are going to be delivered. If any of you are die hard Dreamcast fans, I implore you to pledge a few bucks to the creation of the game (just $30, and you're buying yourself a copy of the game).

    Imagine what finishing a game like Shenmue means to the industry. What other franchises will be finished via crowdfunding once it's proven as a viable option for niche games to be funded? It's a small point away from the endless COD / Battlefield domination of an industry. Well, there's my case. I hope it was a compelling one and some of you will consider pledging, at least enough to own the game.

    The stretch goals are important. Share the kickstarter guys. (Or, by all means. Donate.)

    You can pre-order the game for PC for just $29

    Can't believe it.

    I honestly never thought I'd live to see the day a Shenmue 3 could exist,and it's amazing to see the fans of the series have stood strong 14 years to drive this ourselves.

    Oh I remember when I was little and had Shenmue on my dreamcast. Blew my mind then.

    The lack of eye movement makes the teaser very off putting. But the environments looks great. Here's hoping the game play lives up to the original.

    maybe they want to keep the Dreamcast feel in the game :p

    it's an indie game after all , too bad for the donators though to see their donations going to this half finished project

    Both Shenmue 1 and 2 had eye movement. It is nowhere near what can be done today, but it was indeed there. I have no doubt this will be fixed.

    I anticipate the game will be much shorter than people are expecting. I don't see how they could develop as long a game as the first two were in such a short time even with the delay. But if it plays well and is successful I will be happy with my $27 purchase.

    Dick move if they refuse to give steam keys to backers who want them. The game wouldn't exist without those people.

    Edit: lol no refunds and presumably no steam keys. What a bunch of assholes.

    I just reported the project.
    I backed the game for a release on PC on STEAM.

    Well, shouldn't be long before Kickstarter steps in and starts forcing refunds.
    Congrats Shenmue 3... you killed your game before it even released. That's impressive.

    Well, there's another person who should have his prostate tickled with a pitchfork.

    Epic backs up a truck of cash and dumps it on them and they still have the nerve to refuse backers a refund for the bait and switch...wow.

    I don't think i'll ever use kickstarter again after this experience. Not unless they honor the choice I made when I selected steam as the platform to receive the game on.
    After 18 years I can't imagine this is really what Yu Suzuki wanted for Shenmue 3. It will be dragged through the mud now. Hope it was worth it.

    When I watched the stream this morning I couldn't believe they would pull this crap, as a backer I asked for a refund and got that generic response that's been posted everywhere, reported them to kickstarter but I doubt they'll do anything about it they never bothered to do anything about 90's Super GP to this day nicalis is still holding the game hostage and backers will probably never get the game they funded
