For those of you who don't know, Shenmue 1 & 2 were cult status games on the defunct Sega Dreamcast back in 2000. They were hailed as the most expensive video games ever made at the time, and were revolutionary in their scope and design. Many current gen games owe their game mechanics to Shenmue.
After being left for dead for 14 years, it has been announced at E3 a few days ago that the sequel Shenmue 3 is being developed, funded by Kickstarter. The initial goal was 2million, whch it has surpassed within a day. However, the more money is donated, the more features Shenmue 3 will have, and the closer it will be to Yu Suzuki's (the legendary game developer) original vision.
In today's interviw on reddit, he revealed that ideally Kickstarter funds should reach $10M mark or him to truly create an open - world Shenmue 3.
Shenmue 3 is scheduled for release on PS4 and PC in Decmember 2017.
