What this really means is they're adding the PC version to the slacker backer page, that Gematsu headline is a little misleading.


I find it a smart way of presenting things.

It says pre-order, but ultimately also serves the project development.

Who is Naka? I asume they meant Suzuki, am I?
So, on thursday they will add PC version! That's a good way to collect more money for the game!
Early in 2017 could be february at magic monaco more or less for new videos so maybe this time they will show us a teaser as it was rumoured.

Be careful with your choice of words then...

I already see some kind of sh*t storm on Twitter. Mainly from french users, oddly.

Yes, the article definitely attributes the message to Yu Suzuki.

The Famitsu magazine goes on sale from Dec 15th, but they released this preview page image that contains the message from Yu.Image

They are only a few. Mainly questioning the fact that they open the pre-orders before showing new material.
The truth is they know nothing about the game at best or are trolls in the worst case.

Salty people gonna remain salty.

The KS update could drop on the same day, though. I don't think it will, but... I'm going to keep my eyes peeled on the 15th all the same. Noon JST... 3AM GMT. Guess I'll have to set an alarm. :lol:

Nice! A positive development for sure. :) People have wanted the PC version to be on the PayPal page for a long while now. While preorder may seem duplicitous to some... I agree, it's smart. Anything that builds a sense of anticipation at this point is a good thing in my opinion. The MORE PERTINENT and EXCITING part of the article though is this statement imo:

Development is entering the final stage, headed towards full-scale production.


That and the expectation that we will see new footage early in the year gives me a lot of hope. (Not that I didn't already have a lot of hope, but still.) So we now know the INTENT at least, is to share new footage early next year at the latest. (But as always, things can change.) This also makes me wonder if they've had a lot more for a while now but are simply keeping things under wraps. Maybe there WON'T be a delay after all? I'd almost prefer they did delay it of course, but maybe Yu feels he's indebted to backers and wants to honor his word for a late 2017 release?

Either way, great news.

A KS update on December 15th is very likely. They'll have to update the "Back Now" page anyway and new screenshots could be published to give a push to the PC "pre-order". Everything is possible with Yu... even two updates in the same month :-o

It'd be a goddamn miracle if the game doesn't get delayed, but... Shenmue III itself is kind of a miracle, so, y'know, maybe!

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!

I'm more scared of YS thinking that not delivering the game on dec 2017 would be dishonest than if the game gets delayed to 2020 TBH.
