Shut up and take my money! Shenmue 3 is on Kickstarter

shenmue 3

It’s no secret that I have been a bit outspoken with my personal opinion of crowdfunding and how 9 times out of 10 I don’t agree with most of the things people try to raise money for. But, that all changed during Sony’s E3 press conference tonight, as a game franchise near and dear to my heart has now gone live on Kickstarter. That’s right Shenmue 3 is currently trying to reach it’s $2 million kickstarter goal (with only 31 days to go!) as I’m typing this they have already raised $450,000 which is insane, it looks like we don’t have to worry about whether or not the game gets funded. Check out the trailer for it below.

Now some of these backer rewards are great, $29 can get you a digital copy of the game for either PC or PlayStation 4, they range all the way up to getting the legit original jacket Ryo wore and even dinner with Shenmue director and producer Yu Suzuki.
