Another day without an update, even though we reached another stretch goal.

To be honest, I don't even play videogames anymore, I'm only interested in Shenmue 3 for the story. I found out about the kickstarter on Reddit.

Yesterday I watched a playthrough of Shenmue 2 to refresh myself of the story and characters. And I just realized how weird the ending of Shenmue 2 is. I don't know what to think about the floating sword and magic. It's like Shenmue turned into a fantasy game at that point.

The prologue text which is at the beginning of the manual, in the passport and in the closing scene of Shenmue 1 already suggests that some mystical aspects will come into the story sooner or later.

He shall appear from a far eastern land across the sea.
A young man who has yet to know his full potential.
This potential is a power that can either
destroy him or realize his will.
His courage shall determine his fate.
The path he must traverse, fraught with adversity.
I await whilst praying,
For this destiny predetermined since ancient times.
Awaiting in anticipation.
A dragon emerges from the earth
as ominous clouds fill the sky.
A phoenix descends from the heavens
trailing purple from its wings.
The pitch-black night unfolds
with the morning star as its only light.
And thus, the saga begins.


That said, the ending of S2 is surprising indeed. :)

It's also in the prologue at the beginning of both 1 and 2.

True, but I interpreted that poem as a myth or legend. Not somethng to be taken literally.

Hey everyone.

I know I don't really post here.
But rest assured I do lurk A LOT.
I am really active on the 500K Facebook page (and a couple other generic gaming forums) however. So do not take my 7 posts as a reflection of my love for this game!
I just want to say I am soooooo stoked about this, and in all the avenues I can am trying to promote it. (whilst quenching the controversy around the funding :roll:

Do we know of other japanese developers that use UE4 ?? I think D4 used it.

I think that the engine will make a lot of things easier than expected, hopefully they can get the hang of it quickly enough. They even have some code lying around and UE has a similar sintaxis to c++, so I think they could do a great job.

I am posting around some FB groups linking the kick starter page and asking for some donations if they can and that our community would really appreciate it. I think every one has to take some kind of part in helping this kick starter succeed, ill try to think of some other places to promote it too.

Could you include PC in the thread title? We shouldn't ignore that two platforms are getting the game.
