Holy shit balls mother fucker!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Did that really just happen? I mean really? The internetZ has literally been badgering Sega for years to release some kind of closure to the Shenmue saga but did anyone actually ever believe it would happen? Then E3 happens and from out of nowhere, bam, Yu Suzuki puts his adorable mug on screen at the Sony conference announcing his company, Y’s Net, will be placing a new project, Shenmue III on Kickstarter with a 30-day target of raising $2,000,000. Un-fucking-believable.
Oh man, when that Shenmue music started I nearly wept.
Despite only going live a day ago, the Kickstarter already has smashed its target and it will be interesting to see what amount it actually can climb too. Myself, well I decided to go for the $100 option so I could get my name on a part of history, but after a little thought there is some part of me which really thinks I need that capsule toy in my life. So, there you have it, the game we all thought would never see the light of day is actually happening but if you are yet to contribute, well what the heck are you waiting for back it here - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ysnet/shenmue-3?. Now, where is that Jet Set Radio sequel...?
“If Shenmue 3 was going to get made, I wanted to make it with the fans. Through Kickstarter, I knew that could happen. Together, with Shenmue fans everywhere, I knew we could build the game that the series deserves.”
