Shenmue 3 Kickstarter Adds Several New Stretch Goals

After raising USD $3 million in just 48 hours, Shenmue III developer Ys Net has added several additional stretch goals to the game’s Kickstarter drive, seeking to push the final total even higher. The four new goals, which focus on expanding the game’s Baisha Village and its characters, raise the campaign’s bonus target from USD $4 million to USD $5 million.

The story is too old to be commented.

Every goal will be reached in time. Come on gamers we want shenmue 3

We also want shenmue 1-2 HD remaster

Every dollar counts, let's make this happen

die_fiend1274d ago

I do hope you've pledged yourself to be saying this.

showtimefolks1274d ago

Yes $50


I would say with the amount of interest since e3 in shenmue, Sega should see the opportunity and jump into the idea of Shenmue 1 and 2 hd remaster

Atleast part of me hope for that

I know Sony had been bugged about shenmue hd 1 and 2, and so they may do it. For over a year now Sony has a team that works on what people want and try to get it

Like yakuza 5
shenmue 3
the last guardian
Ff7 remake

So chances are we most likely will see she me 1 and 2. Somy are taking care of yakuza 5 English subs so Sony if given permissionby Sega may choose to do the shenmue 1 and 2 hd

Unfortunately it might not happen but you never know.

Are there plans for the HD versions of Shenmue 1 & 2?

The property rights for Shenmue 1 and Shenmue 2 belong to SEGA, so we are not in a position to comment on that.

Kickstarter FAQ.

I hope Sega releases it at least

I've pledged $29. If there were more incentives for PS4 gamers, like a physical copy, I would have pledged more. Most the incentives are for pc gamers unfortunately.

SakataXGintoki1274d ago

Exactly! Why isn't there a physical copy for PS4 at $60 ? What gives??

fei-hung1274d ago

Even if there isn't a physical copy, they could at least have a digital copy that comes with a box that contains the soundtrack or something. As PS4 only players, we have no choice but to either go for $29 or $175 to get something which will include a physical object.

Th3o1274d ago

Most likely Sony prefers to handle Physical copies or prefer's to cash in as much as possible through PSN only.


So this way if you really want a physical copy you are forced to purchase both if you also want to pledge.

Dowie1274d ago

i'll be pledging tomorrow when I get paid. Can't wait for this to come out :)

Funds aren't pulled until the end of the Kickstarter... pledge away!

* The more I think about this, the more I think that this Kickstarter funding was actually going to fund the Shenmue 1 & 2 HD Remake, and the funding for Shenmue 3 was already there from Sony.

* It makes so much more sense to release the Shenmue 1&2 HD remakes before Shenmue 3, to get everyone caught up on the story.

They made a big deal about continuing the story, but most people don't know, or don't remember the story because it's been so long, so having a re-release of sorts for the first two would make a ton of sense.
