Update 6/16/15: Shenmue 3 is fully funded! Head over to the Kickstarter campaign to get your copy for $29!
If you had a Dreamcast, or Xbox, you probably heard of Shenmue. Yu Suzuki, once of SEGA’s premier AM2, Virtua Fighter, Ferrari 355 Challenge/OutRun, Virtua Cop, and many more hardcore games, is running his own studio YS.net and is the holding the rights to Shenmue 3.
With that, today at Sony’s presser he made the gaming audience squeal like little Japanese school girls over his announcement.
As of this writing it’s just a cheek away from reaching it and may very well hold the record for quickest funded game. Shenmue 3 is already the fasted game to reach the $1 million point on Kickstarter.
In my world, it would be released for the Dreamcast as well. But for now, it’a set to release on PC and PlayStation 4.
