Re: how come Shenmue 3 is being produced on a $2M budget?

It's not. I imagine the fundraiser is to show investors (most likely Sony) that people ARE interested enough and will put their money where their mouth is.
The fact the entire goal was pledged in 9 hours goes to show how strong the Shenmue community still is.
On the KS page, it states that if the goal is reached, Shenmue 3 WILL happen on PS4 and PC. So it's pretty safe to assume Sony (and possible other investors) made a deal with Yu already (meet the $2 million, we'll fund the rest.)

Re: Long term fans mixed feelings?

In all honesty in all this time waiting... I have tried not to give myself too overwhelming an expectation. I purposely never went looking for answers of certain things that would happen in remaining chapters. I think that has really helped in my staying extremely psyched for the next game.

My confidence in Yu has always been high. I cannot realistically see him ever letting me down going by past experiences of his works.

Re: If you donated to help Shenmue 3. Please post here.

I raised my pledge from $300 to $500. Is there a way to pledge more? Or do we have to wait and see if the KS campaign adds in extra pledges. I don't care about rewards, I just want to help out as much as I can monetary wise.

Cliffy B backs Shenmue 3 & discusses funding...

Cliffy B, creator of Gears of War, has backed Shenmue 3: https://twitter.com/therealcliffyb/status/610654059591176192

...and this next part from his twitter is interesting, since Cliffy and other game developers are discussing the funding... they seem to think that most of the funds are in place and the KS is just for PR and the finishing touches for the game. They'd know better than anyone how this stuff would work.

Re: Famitsu scans

Time to increase your pledges everyone...

From the Kickstarter Reddit page:

"As you guys know there was a massive article in this Months Famistu. Luckily the user Varion from NeoGaf has translated the important parts and these 2 comments stood out!

2 million is the bare minimum for the game to exist, and if that was all they got, it would just be focused on the story. The more money it gets, the more of the things he wants to do will be possible.

As far as money goes, he expects the game's investment will primarily come from individual backers, so he wants them all to be happy with the finished product. Doesn't sound like Sony and others are giving them all THAT much.

These points are so so important. We have people not pledging high amounts because they think that Sony (and other investors) are going to jump in. These comments state, directly from Yu's mouth that that is NOT the case! The kickstarter is the main funding for the game.

Now I know people are sad that there might not be a physical PS4 copy, and I understand that you don't want to pledge over the $29, but really how are you going to feel when the game that you have waited 14 years for gets stripped of content that Yu wanted in his original vision? Please guys, lets get Yu as much money as we possibly can so he can make the game that he wants, and that he deserves!

Help share this message, as you still have people in the kickstarter comments, on here, on shenmuedojo saying that there is no reason to back the game as Sony are stepping in to fund it..."

Re: Yu Suzuki doing Reddit AMA tomorrow!

IMO you should lose the "Will the final game be at full price?" question. We've been badgering the guy for years to get S3 made, how is this gonna look? Like we're not willing to buy it if it's full price? The game is being included in the Kickstarter pledges anyway.

Also change "Will you finish the story with Shenmue 3?" to something like "Will you try to finish the story over the course of 2-3 more games as you originally envisioned?" Sounds much better, like we aren't after just one game.

Re: We should clear up the misunderstanding about Sony's fun


- Yu Suzuki says the majority of investment will be from Kickstarter.

It takes a bit of imagination to infer this sentence from your source.





Adam Boyes has conveyed in two or three occasions that Sony is backing the project substantially.

We're getting behind it in a major way

^ I imagine through promotion and other types of support, not necessarily funding.

Re: why i need to help shenmue 3

i need to see something of shenmue 3 not just 10sec vid ryu can you jump yess i can does that make people excited ?
remmeber back in the day shenmue 1 pictures concept art etc etc what did we get with shenmue 3 nothing the game is in develpment sins 2004 i believe

That was a pre-alpha/promo video. Probably has very little to do with proper development.
The game hasn't been in development since 2004. Sega cancelled it after Shenmue 2 and Yu had received no funding from anywhere until now to make it. As for needing to see something, have faith in Yu. Going by all the interviews and quotes you shouldn't have anything major to worry about except the KS budget. You need to get in there and make a pledge now before you lose your chance. There's no guarantee they will add a Paypal option during or after the KS is over. If you are worried it won't be good enough or whatever, thats where your concern should lie. Not with Suzuki and his team.

Live TV Show - Raising Money In Gaming

A friend of mine on Twitter (who I'd like to keep confidential) told me this Friday he will be taking part in a live show on TV about raising money in gaming events. He does a lot of this kind of thing, usually involving raising funds for sick children. He's raised many thousands of Euro's in past events. I spoke to him this morning about the Shenmue Kickstarter and he said he will mention it and try to get some more traffic sent our way.

Re: Your Reaction To The News of SIII Announcement?

I was up from the start of the Sony conference until the announcement of it. I had read a few articles saying that S3 would be finally shown but like everyone else, I assumed people were just trolling. The picture of the forklift posted by Yu didn't really do much for me either.

I was losing faith by the time it was announced, especially since we were shown some small Indie games just before.
But.. as soon as that music started, I just kind of sat there gobsmacked. I didn't really take it all in, I had to rewatch the announcement a few times before I realized it was really happening. I was just completely overwhelmed. It really did feel as though I needed to pinch myself.

Joy turned to panic when I realized it was going to be funded through Kickstarter - what, no straight funding by Sony or any other big publisher? Damn it! So my first determination was to go and make a pledge - which I did by clicking straight off the Youtube stream and straight onto KS; donating a mere $300. I have upped it to $630 since then and hope to keep doing so before it ends.

My initial reaction to the announcement? As you could probably tell, completely stunned. I never seriously thought we'd see the day come. And now every day since I've been smiling to myself, knowing we'll finally get continuance and hopefully, closure.

Re: Suzuki, "I want to make Shenmue 4"

Shenmue 4 is more than possible. It's practically in the bag for us already aslong are we all arent dicks to Suzuki about whatever Shenmue 3 is lacking .

This is what I fear. If we aren't happy with something, it needs to be addressed in a professional and friendly manner. I've seen on many developer forums the sort of attitudes they have to put up with.

You are right. Gamers can be complete dicks. But this is us we are talking about, this is Yu Suzuki and Shenmue. We already adore the hell out of him and the series. For us to collectively throw shit at him is unimaginable. I think most Shenmue fans have way too much respect for him and the series to throw him out like a Peter Molyneux or David Cage.

No matter how horrible Shenmue 3 could be, id still 100% support Suzuki on trying again to make it better.
Wouldn't you?

Of course I would!!! I think you misunderstood me.

I wasn't talking about the Dojo, but other Shenmue fans worldwide posting their thoughts in a negative way across different forums on the internet. Sadly, every franchise has its loudmouths and I imagine Shenmue is no different. It's just how it is. But as always we will ensure the good attitudes outweigh the bad.

So... Arm Wrestling!

We all know that Shenmue is rife with mini-games, but my favourite (yes even more so than lucky hit or betting) is without a doubt the Arm wrestling! But, don't ask me if I'm any good at it 8)

So, how far were you able to get? Some of those guys are just brutal, especially the area with the long line up of wrestlers. I even struggle at the very first wrestler you come across in the Worker's Pier. I can manage $40 but my fingers feel like they are about to snap off :P :oops: The $50 bet makes me feel like I'm going to have heart palpitations :-&

I think because, for me anyway, it's the toughest of the mini-games it makes it more addictive. That rush of adrenaline you get during the harder tiers is something that has endured all these years.

I hope it makes a return to Shenmue 3 \:D/

The Loading Screens - Kept or Removed?

We all love them... They were just meant to be a simple transition between one area to another, but they became so much more; pretty much a staple of the franchise, infact.

These screens, however, were just a sign of the times - when the hardware couldn't load everything up at once. Completely unlike today with the much bigger open world title's such as GTA V or Skyrim, able to load the world up around you constantly before your eyes without much or any hassle.

With the technology far more advanced from 14 years ago, how many of you believe Yu will keep these load screens in Shenmue 3? Frequent, semi-frequent, or removed entirely?
