Same lol. I honestly want a delay. So now the question is, which will win out? Yu's perfectionism? Or Yu's sense of honesty? He seems to have a rich tapestry of both running through him. :)

It's also possible though, that somehow, miraculously, maybe because of not having to develop their own engine, they've already got something close to feature complete that they consider truly what he wants. He is renowned for making almost super-humanly good use of limited budget and time, micromanaging solutions to increase dev efficiency, etc. With all the new, easier to use tools at his disposal... it's possible imo.

I guess the footage will tell the tale once available!

If it's not finished, it won't go out. Period. Yu isn't dumb.

Although delaying will have costs, he'll know that an unfinished or unpolished Shenmue III won't do him or the series any favours.

I can't fathom why it took so long for this.

Fucking hell if this game does come out totally finished and highly polished in December 2017, then a lot of people are going to have to eat their words. Myself included, and happily!


If I had to sign right now for a 6 month delay, knowing it's for the good of the final product quality, I would sign without giving it a second thought. After so many years, 6 month are like a blink of an eye. :)

Probably a marketing ploy to get some cashflow midway. Hopefully the PC slacker update comes paired with some screens/videos/PR push.

Nearly every Kickstarter game gets delayed. Hell, most games get delayed. The original Shenmue got delayed. I don't want the game to be rushed just to reach December 2017. If they have the money, I'd be happy with a delay as long as the final game is good.

As for the delay in the PC version being available, my guess is it's to do with deals with whoever is publishing the PC version.

I hope once the game does get a firm date (whether 2017 or delayed,) they allow Steam preorders. That could be a big source of revenue for the game especially if towards the end we see a huge E3 presentation for the game. I think the game's real monetary success in the long term will be via digital distribution platforms.

If the game needs a delay, so be it. It's really out of our hands, but I'm sure the right decisions will be made if the game needs more time in the oven. Maybe YSnet really can get it done for December 2017, though.

We're not really privy to the backroom business, which is probably why we don't know why this has taken so long, but it's coming (as promised), so that's something to be positive about.

If I recall, Shibuya Productions is the publisher. This delay could have had more to do with the distribution, though.

If I'm not wrong, that's Shibuya Productions.

Seems the news is spreading to other sites. Face palming a little about them saying "but we've seen nothing since E3 2015" and "updates have been few and far between".

Good god.

Hopefully not too early. Steam takes 30%, I think they're now only losing the ammount paypal discounts.
