    This will be the first kickstarter I donate to. Such an unexpected announcement.

    Actually, I'm really bummed there's no physical release for PS4. Yakuza 5 was also done this way in the US :(

    Awesome, it's already made 1 million. It will slow down by tomorrow, but there's no doubt they'll reach the deadline.

    Definitely going to donate. But I'm going to see if they'll revise their stretch goals. Seeing more than a few requests for PS4 physical release.

    Just glad this is finally going to happen and put all of us longtime fans out of our misery :lol:

    I never played Shenmue, but I know how big a deal it is, and how everybody thought it was dead and hopeless for a return.

    I had Sony's press conference running in the background as I cooked dinner, and I ran to look at the screen as soon as I heard "Shenmue." Needless to say, the fish tonight was quite overcooked. :lol:

    Dude, fvck yes. The first game blew my effin' mind and I was so sad to hit the end of Shenmue 2 and never learning what would come after. Shenmue is a classic, always will be. So glad this is a thing.

    Update: this just broke a record for the fastest kickstarter to hit 2 million dollars

    File this under "no ....?": Sony WILL help fund this game.



    They explain in the video why they used Kickstarter instead of just tossing him cash is basically summed up by "vote with your wallet." It was used to gauge interested, because they didn't want to spend (and lose) money on a potential bomb since a lot of people see Shenmue as a cult game. I HOPE this was common knowledge, though, since you can't fund a game like Shenmue with only $2 million. Given how quickly this was funded, it's safe to say it's coming. :D

    It's been so long since I played the first two that I no longer recall the story at all. I don't have any consoles so I can't replay them before this one comes out.

    Next year, I'm watching these guy's stream. Was the complete opposite of Giant Bomb's, apparently. :lol:

    Over 3Mil already. Looks like they'll probably hit all their stretch goals.

    Yeah, I don't know what was up with those guys. They literally said "Are you ****ing kidding me?" to the Shenmue reveal, and not in a good way.

    They did the same thing with the FFVII remake. They were literally cynical about every single little thing that was shown off at E3, for every press conference.

    Don't even need a remake or remaster or anything, just throw them up on the Playstation store as is and I'll just be happy with that to catch up.

    I dont want to be hater and Its cool that all the fans will get the game they have been hanging out for but I have to admit I'm WtF on the whole shenmue thing

    I had never played it and borrowed a mates original xbox and shenmue 2 a while ago and expected great things I thought it was kinda boring . maybe at the time it was innovative for being such an open world but I just missed the whole great thing about it I guess
