Yu Suzuki’s crowd-funding campaign for the sequel is will on its way to being funded.
Following the blockbuster announcement at Sony’s E3 2015 conference of Shenmue 3 being crowd-funded via Kickstarter, the project has already seen a massive wave of support in its first day. With 31 days still to go and an original funding goal of $2 million, more than 18,000 backers have already pledged $1,584,912 in funds since the initial announcement.
Shenmue 3 will be heading to the PS4 and PC and is under the direction of Yu Suzuki who originally created the game (along with the Virtua Fighter series). It will continue the tale of Ryo Hazuki as he continues through China, searching for his father’s killer Lan Di and ultimately uncover the many secrets connecting them. Along the way, he’ll meet a new companion in Shenhua and discovers how their paths intersect.
There are numerous stretch goals up to $ 4 million in case the Kickstarter project exceeds expectations including a Rapport system, Skill Tree system and much more. Will you be backing Shenmue 3? Let us know in the comments below.
