    Pledged.

    Someone please give $10k to the man, and ask him for the Saturn version's sources during the diner event thing.

    Holy cow. I've actually never played the first or second game, but I'm shocked and excited for Shenmue 3. I guess this probably won't be the ending to the series anymore...

    Also, do we know if Sega is involved at all? Will Sega be the publisher?

    Edit: Oh it's Sony... :/

    Almost reached $500,000

    I suppose you could say some won't pay up but that's still quite something, not even 30 minutes...

    It might not break Pebble Time's record of $1 million in 49 minutes, but it's only been 30 and it's half way there. There's no doubt now that it's happening.

    Haven't read through the page yet, will go back when the presentation is over. Not really liking the new character art style, hope they can go closer to the original. But it doesn't matter.

    Sheesh, about fucking time.

    So... Is SEGA not involved in any way with this? They've made sure not to imply/deny such a thing in the whole campaign page.

    They're probably waiting to see if the kickstarter is a success before they get involved. You'd imagine they must be involved in some way - Who owns the rights?

    Pledged $300

    Fingers crossed for a Dreamcast port stretch goal :specialed:

    The game page is listed only to YsNet on the copyrights, but on the other hand I'm told the SEGA logo was in a corner during the presentation (I didn't watch it) so I've no idea

    This is better than anything, and I mean anything announced at E3 by leaps and bounds, HOLY- Really hope this thing gets all the social media buzz and journalism's noise it needs to see the big finale in the trilogy funded.

    Also, one comment on the Kickstarter page was like, "I just barfed up $175 as if by command.", and lots of people are saying they'd up their pledge if a physical PS4 copy is on the table. You know the sheer demand for this game is real.

    Trapped in my own thoughts.
    Two stageplays, a screenplay, and an album
    I really want some sort of rerelease of the first two. I never owned a Dreamcast or an Xbox, and I don't wanna come into the story with no idea what's going on.

    If Sega is smart, they'll re-release Shenmue 1 and 2 as part of their Dreamcast Collection re-releases...if they even do that anymore.

    So tempting to pledge $100 to get demo access. I wonder if there's a non-disclosure agreement with it...

    Amazed that this is actually happening. Wonder if the first two will get a re-release so the whole trilogy can be played.

    Not where I want to be.
    Sonic (?): Coming summer of 2055...?
    $760k in just over an hour. We're getting Shenmue 3, it seems.

    I hope it's as good as we've been hoping

    My first thoughts?

    Maybe there will be an arcade that has more modern SEGA classics like Daytona USA 2 playable...(although not a Yu Suzuki game)

    Seems like a good opportunity for that.

    All 4 $10,000 Rewards are gone already

    Aaaaaand there goes the $1,000,000 mark. At some point we'll actually start talking about something other than live updating a Kickstarter :v:

    Definitely preaching against the choir on this one, but I think this conversation would inevitably happen, hype or no hype. This is a real sketch move on Sony's part to premiere a kickstarter on stage at E3. I'm 100% not comfortable with that. Do not get me wrong, I may not be a Shenmue fan (I've never played it so hey, I'm more a potential one to be honest), but I'm very happy you guys are finally getting that big number 3 you've been hoping for all these years. Now I know you all would have donated this money in a heartbeat, Sony's announce or not, but I feel like Sony is using a hypetrain to have their marketing costs covered for a game that, while a PC release as well, will help move their product(s). It feels extremely dirty and I can't be a part of it. It would have been better had they gone the Mighty No. 9 (ugh bad example) or Bloodborne path (MUCH BETTER example).

    Despite all that. Fuck yes. Shenmue 3 is a thing now and I'm feeling compelled to actually go ahead and play the first 2 for epic forklift shenanigans. :v:

    I think it's pretty scummy of Sony as well. It makes me even less of a fan of theirs. I'm hopeful that because of the funding from the kickstarter, Suzuki and co will really be able to give the game the attention it deserves though.

    As an indicator of how big a deal this is, I have not yet watched the Game of Thrones season 5 finale, and am instead completely mesmerised by watching the pledge total tick its way up towards "funded"
