$5 million is a certainty, but 10... I think we'll end up around 7 or 8, but hope I'm wrong!

If they enable Paypal donations it will get to 10 million.

A: I will say this: if we reach the $5 mil mark, one of the things I really want to do with Shenmue 3 will become a reality.

At $10 million, it will truly have the features of an open world.

Well there we have it. I guess anything under 10 million we can expect it to be watered down.

Q: Who would win a fight between Ryo and Akira?

A: Akira! Akira is up to 5 now, and Ryo is still on 3.


Q: Can we expect more duck racing in Shenmue III? That was the best easter egg I've ever seen in a video game.

A: I would love it.

That's a good start !! Now I hope that Mr Suzuki will reconsider what Tak Hirai said about the fighting system & QTE system...

They need to allow donations past the kickstarter and enable Paypal donations. It will get to 10 million easily. We brought all of this up to Yu in the AMA. They are likely to do it.

Have to push this kickstarter into overdrive.

I'm upping my initial backing to $500 next week.

Q: How was it working with mega64?

A: It was really fun. I would love to do it again.

I hope they pitch in for the replica Ryo jacktet!


Q: Will there be forklift gameplay in Shenmue III?

A: Look for it in the Stretch Goals!


Q: Our fourty third question from the 500k community. -Given Shenmue 2's ending and previous items found within the series; will swordplay enter gameplay at all? What about the story, can we expect Ryo to use a sword at some point?

A: I can't answer that.


Q: Do you have a favorite game that you've developed other than Shenmue?

A: I had fun making all the games I worked on, and can't say one was better than another. Boring answer I know, but it really is true.

Not trying to whore for thumbs up here, but he kinda didn't answer the Saturn comment of the guy that he just replied to here.

http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/3 ... ?context=3

Can we try to get him to directly answer about releasing the Saturn version? I fear this is our only chance to ever see that version. My saturn question is here.

The answer is on the kickstarter where it says SEGA only gave him permission to create 3 and anything else relating to shenmue concerns SEGA.

Would the Saturn build even be in a working state? How would you be able to play it? There might be a good reason why they're not answering to be honest.

Edit: Add to it that, much like HD ports for Shenmue 1 and 2, YsNet probably has no control over that. It's not up to them.

Yeah but he would be the only one that could ask them. He is most likely the only person on earth with that beta. Sega has a bad habit of loosing devkit data.

And a beta can be in any state. Who knows if it is playable or not. The game is a holy grail on the Saturn over at Assembler games and nobody has ever found it.
