A good starting point will be the sales made through Shenmue III, but will we see the game wrap up its narrative story?
They blew it when they went exclusive with Epic Games after kickstarting their project. I don't care what happens to this series.
It’s seems you not a fan of shenmue.
So many games do this, particularly AA or mid AAAs that need the money. Control, Metro Exodus, you name it. Shenmue 3 didn't get a massive AAA budget, they needed the money.
That's what their kickstarter was for. They should have asked for more money if they desperately needed it.
It wouldn't exist without the backer's, not epic and they're useless store which didn't exist at the time
I was as pissed as anybody that the game went to Epic as a timed exclusive, but that one decision alone doesn't mean I don't care anymore. If that one decision was enough to turn anybody off, then they probably weren't very interested in the game to begin with.
no, or you just aren't willing to support devs who don't even care to keep the promise they got your backing with. Even if I was a epic store user I wouldn't want to support it after that. It's fine to bring to both stores or even allow backers to redeem on steam but it's not buyable on steam for the year otherwise. But completely disregarding what you promised is a entirely different thing lmao
They pissed in the faces of the people who backed them . This game wouldn't have ever existed without these backers.
I agree, but I'm just gonna buy it on PS4.
It seems you like game stores more than games themselves.
Perhaps Yu Suzuki should aim to finish the story in Shenmue 4?
Shenmue will not end even on 4. Remember this game is only 40% of the series so it might end on Shenmue 7 but who knows if Suzuki will get another funding after this game. I hope people who are real fans will get over that petty epic store issue and see the bigger picture which is the series conclusion.
The fact that we're getting three is a blessing. If we would have waited with Sega, we wouldn't have had any sequel at all. If three does well, maybe another company will help fund their next project instead of kick starters.
Yeah,then hopefully SEGA will pull their head outta their ass and fund 4.
Shemue 4 plz
Maybe next time they'll try not to piss off their fanbase and lose a bunch of sales?
I would like Sega to take it over so that we Xbox gamers may get it just like we did Shenmue 1&2 (even getting 2 on the OG Xbox back in the day.) I will still be there day one on my Surface Studio, but maxed both Shenmue 1&2 on Xbox and would love to have the whole trilogy there.
I feel you brother. That's how I played shenmue 2 for the first time on Xbox. And with the catch up story shenmue 1 disc. I'm on ps4 now, but I still feel for you
Its a tragedy this game is not on Xbox at the same time as PS4. I never really understood publishers blocking multiplat games from players. Its a real anti consumer practice that needs to end.
A trilogy should be enough. Time to move on with something new.
Yu Suzuki not being able to finish the Shenmue series would be the greatest injustice in gaming history.
He taking too damn long! I mean Sega was able to kick out like 30 Yakuza games in less time...think about it haha
While I love the Yakuza games, they don't have nearly as much spoken dialogue, their scope is always similar to the ones before while adding a few new areas.
Nope 3 is not the end of the series.
Considering how poorly the Remaster of the first two games sold and Deep Silver are releasing the third game during the month of November this will probably be the last Shenmue game but Yu Suzuki said beforehand Shenmue 3 will not end the story.
I really hope Suzuki can make a Shenmue 4 game because he has lost a lot of support from backers with the epic controversy. But this petty controversy shouldn't determine the support for real shenmue fans. I believe Shenmue 7 will end the series but don't know if the series it will make it pass this game.
