    That's probably why they had the kickstarter. To see if people were interested in the series since the old games are niche and not very impressive by modern standards. I only remember Shenmue 1 because my friend's older brother had a Dreamcast. Back in 2001 or whatever year it was, that .... was damn impressive at the time. I'm also a big fan of the Yakuza series, which shares similarities to Shenmue, so that's another reason I'm interested in Shenmue 3. Never played 2 tbh.

    I missed out on the early Yakuza games. I did get the third one for the PS3 but I didn't really give it a chance because it was a little weird and I had so many other games to play at the time. .... I still do!

    Less than 24hrs to go.

    60K+ backers, 5.3M so far. It looks like they're going to break the 5.6M Kickstarter Video Game record.


    Some of this last minute push has probably been helped along with the news about a retail version.

    I know this is probably one heck of a necrobump, but this seems relevant to the discussion instead of starting a new stream. But it looks like shenmuehd.com was registered late last year.

    Perhaps those of us who want to catch up on Shenmue before no. 3 drops will finally get that chance without having to hunt down/dig up a Dreamcast?

    That's the kind of news I've been hoping to hear. I didn't own a Dreamcast back in the day, but I was always curious back then.

    Same here. Just add it to the list of re releases I can finally experience but I didn't own a particular system back in the day.

    Get ready for a treat if that happens. Shenmue 1 and 2 are both classics in my opinion. Especially considering how long ago they came out now.

    I played both last year on DC and original XBOX. They have aged well :)
