Comments made by Shenmue creator Yu Suzuk suggest the epic saga could be completed by crowd funding.
I thought it would have never come to his mind for making Shenmue sequel
He probably gets fan requests daily, I dubt he finds time not to think about it lol.
It's probably the one question he gets asked the most. I'm surprised he doesn't totally rage every time someone mentions it! ;)
I would give him half of my PS4 money and buy the PS4 at a later date in its second month or so. This game needs a sequel before I die or before HE DIES.
I think he has always wanted to finish off the shenmue saga. It's his baby, maybe something that completely flopped and ruined his career but it has always been something he spent years of his life in making. Maybe if they do a kickstarter project they should consider an episodic release. shenmue is alread split up in a bunch of chapters (13 chapters I believe), wouldn't hurt to experiment on making an episodic RPG/adventure/action/FREE/what ever the genre it is. I mean he should actually consider converting this into a full blown remake and split into chapters to milk as much money as possible. Fans are willing to spend 100+ for this game anyway. I would personally spend £300+ for a collectors edition.
It would be fascinating if this actually happens - not just to see what the target amount would be - but also how many people turn around and support it. People say they want Shenmue 3 - but how many people would stump up the cash to fund it...
WHERE DO I SEND MONEY????
[email protected] That's Yu's personal paypal email address. I'm totally not lying right now. Joking aside, I hope he decides to do it, so we can finally get to experience another masterpiece.
money sent... hopefully the game will arrive very soon :D:D:D
Suzuki-san is as very important as me in video games. 3D games owe a lot to him and his Virtua Fighter. With out him 3-D games could have not taken off as they do today. PlayStation's success owe a lot to Yu Suzuki-san.
I would definitely pay money upfront for this. I think it's the only kickstarter that'd I'd bother supporting... This, and for Phantasy Star V made by Reiko Kodama and Yuji Naka! ; )
Oh man, what I would give for a Phantasy Star 5 from Reiko Kodama! And yes, Shenmue 3 kickstarter - I'd pay upfront for that for sure. That and an HD collection of the first two games!
Would he not have to get Sega's approval first? If he did that is awesome. I hope it is made.
Iwata will probably fund this.
Nintendo will probably see this and fund it just like Bayonetta 2, I'm calling it watch.
Just do it. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Yes please :D
don't think it would happen, project like shenmue 3 needs lots of money. we are talking about at least 50millions. let's do a simple calculation lets say 100000 people will fund it. 50 millions/100000=$500 it can buy a PS4, 500000 people will reduce the amount to $100 which is more probable but 500000 people supporting this with $100, really? And to be honest, this type of game won't sell well in today's market.
all it needs is clever marketing clever marketing can sell shit, so im sure it can sell a game of such high caliber
I went back to try to play shemnue 2 a while back. Can honestly say that game shoudl have stayed in my memories.. THe game is garbage now... Not the graphic aspect ... but everything.. most boring game ever. Nothing to it.
Just stop messing with my mind already!
This would be the first kickstarter project I would send my money. And oh how much I would send. Nike has always been right: Just do it!
Really interesting if this is true.
Oh shut up already, for 10+ years we've been given hope and had them shattered. I'm done believing, when it comes out it will. In this age, I'm more scared of Shenmue 3 causing more harm than good at this point. Release SHenmue 1 + 2 HD, then pretend to work on 3:) I'm sorry, but enough is enough with these false hopes.
The game needs to be made. Simple as.
I would love for Shenmue 3 to be made, but I refuse to get my hopes up once again.
