Shenmue 3 KickStarter Successfully Reaches Its Basic Funding Goal Within 12 Hours


Shenmue 3 Kickstarter was announced at Sony’s E3 conference in a big surprise. Yu Suzuki is personally handling this project, which is likely going to be co-produced by Sony. The Kickstarter was able to get 1 million in backers money within a few hours and has created a new record again by getting fully funded in less than 12 hours.

The Kickstarter for Shenmue 3 can be found here and at the time of writing, it has passed 2 million of its initial required goal, which means the game is now definitely coming out. The total Backers count was at around 25k at the time of writing this article.


In term of stretch goals, the Kickstarter currently tops out at 4 million but at the rate it is currently going on, this goal doesn’t seem to be out of reach.
