Kickstarter Update #15 - The Plan & Stretch Goals revealed.

The Plan

Hello Backers and Shenmue Fans!

So, what about those Stretch Goals? With all of your questions, this couldn't wait any longer! Without further ado, Yu Suzuki talks Stretch Goals:

phpBB [video]


As you can see down below, yes, Yu Suzuki has planned a few Stretch Goals for Shenmue 3. It has been 14 + years after all! For the different areas that will make up the game, Yu-san felt that he should focus on making each area as fully immersive as possible before moving on to the next new one, so the area portions of the Stretch Goals have been grouped together.

When it was decided Shenmue 3 would be a go on Kickstarter, Yu-san methodically structured how the game would fit together, knowing that it would change depending on how much could be raised here. The different elements of the game would form a scaffold, building up from each new system and mechanic that would enhance the game as a whole.


This only breaks ice, so on the Twitch session tomorrow, Yu-san will get deeper into the Stretch Goals and explain the different elements he has laid out Shenmue 3. He will also be addressing many of your comments and questions that have amassed thus far, so please tune in! Should you happen to miss it though, we will have a recap on the here on the page, so no sweaty!

The link for the Twitch stream will posted on anUpdate later today and on Twitter @Shenmue_3

As always! We just can't thank everyone enough for all of your support. Shenmue 3 would not be here without you, so keep those comments, videos, tweets, postings, and everything in between coming!

I am still baffled by languages consuming almost a fifth of the budgets finances. How about making the game to the best of its potential BEFORE adding in languages!! A lot of those countries speak English anyways!!

Ok! Now we know we need at least 11 million to make Shenmue 3 the best it could be.

There must be wealthy gamers out there, like celebrities! Please spread the Shenmue III kickstarter link on all videogame related forums.

By the look of things, I believe we will hit barely 6 million on the final day of Kickstarter if we do not donate more or have more backers.

:cry:

Great update.

But WOW at that bold 11 million stretch goal.

There's no way some people would think the game will be a "downgrade" (a downgrade from nothing, but still).

Baisha looks interesting as fuck.

WE NEED TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN.

I don't think the subtitles take up much of the budget. I think they think they'll attract more money by appealing to certain groups. Apparently Brazil loves Shenmue. I know they love Sega.

Sadly, I cannot see this kickstater getting far beyond 6 million, but I do hope we AT LEAST hit that for the Advanced Free Battle System!
