Shenmue is still a joke. Those Kickstarter records are thanks to fans like you, only second to Sonic stans in terms of long held inferiority complexes.

Get hyped for that :trash VO and influential :piss QTE "gameplay" :piss2

There's no way this game will live up to the expectations of its fanbase either, so I look forward to the inevitable punchline in the disappointment this will bring.

I'm betting on 6 million. I'd like 8-10 million. Really want them to say something about an HD collection.

At $2,386,886  with 29,935 backers.  2,389,601/29,935  = 79.82.  You disgusting fan boys.

Also it's funny you 180'd from "hahaha, stupid fans holding out hope:

Prepare for giggles and laughs from Shenmue fan disappointment! STRAP IN.

to "I TOLD YOU SO! I ALWAYS BELIEVED! :rejoice " in a matter of hours after this reveal happened. The only reason this is getting funded is because most people want to support it finally happening and backing up fans crazy hope. If this bombs a third time, you can expect not even Sony funding a fourth. So you better hope Yu has a goddamn conclusion for the series planned in this outing.

I don't think you can read. I said I gave up years ago. Why can't I be happy this is finally happening? What is wrong with you? I also never said there was nothing wrong with hoping. There had been massive evidence stockpiling for years. The problem was Shenmue fans who were always expecting something and making our fan base a joke. There's nothing wrong in wanting something - there is something wrong with always expecting something despite prior evidence.

Sure, you "gave up years ago." But your reaction to this news being "OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG I BELIEVED! I BELIEVED!" is funny to me. You were all ":rejoice Gamer Tears :rejoice " and then it happens and you're all ":ohhh :phil " to the news.

I love Sega games. Historically they've been some of the most outright-fun pure-gameplay arcadey experiences ever. Great memories of House of the Dead, Crazy Taxi, and the occasional Sonic game.

Shenmue is not a pure gameplay experience, Andy. It blends gameplay with cinematic story telling. It's a game wholly driven by storytelling. Shenmue I has maybe less than 10 fights in it.

You bitches won't kill my vibe.

Edit: I think it's mostly driven by immersion for me, however vague that may be defined. You felt like you actually lived in Yokosuka in the first game, and you felt like you were only a traveller in Hong Kong. No game has ever conveyed that as well to me.

Agreed. I loved how in I it really was your home town and II was completely fish out of water. The way the dialogue enhanced this was a great touch. In Shenmue, you ask for where a place is and the npcs act like you already know where it is, which forces more exploration. In II, you ask where something is and they give these fucking elaborate directions, like, keep going that way and you'll see a man next to some birds, turn left and keep going.

Even the way you learn moves. I always loved how they never say stupid 4th wall shit like most games, and if you're going to do a move like <- -> X they'd say, shift your weight backward, then thrust forward as you punch.

Even the QTE's are like this. In other games, QTE's are fucking random button presses. In Shenmue, all the button prompts are in relation to actual buttons in fights. So if Ryo punches in a QTE, you press the punch button. If you're going to duck and then punch, you press down and then punch button. It was always so natural and consistent that few games have.

It will easily get to 5 million bucks, maybe 10 or 15 million.

For reference, it's made more than half of Bloodstained's total [$5.5 million] in about 14 hours.

What do you guys want in III?

I want more arcade games. I want Daytona USA and Virtua Fighter 2 in Shenmue III. No, I don't care they didn't exist in the 80's!

And speaking of immersion, I want the voice track to be fully voiced in Chinese for maximum immersion. :rejoice

I wouldn't get my hopes up for Shenmue 3 including Sega arcade games, if I were you. Especially after reading the FAQ:

Quote
Is this game affiliated with SEGA?

SEGA has officially given us the rights to use the "Shenmue" license.

Are there plans for the HD versions of Shenmue 1 & 2?

The property rights for Shenmue 1 and Shenmue 2 belong to SEGA, so we are not in a position to comment on that.

Comes across like Sega throwing Yu Suzuki a bone by giving him their blessing to go forward with a game they have zero interest in pursuing, rather than Sega actually having some involvement themselves which would make it easier to put their arcades games in it.

Yeeeeah, right.


As for what I want from it, I'm keeping my hopes down. I don't expect any games and little of the attention to detail, as I just don't think that's realistic given the circumstances. There's no way this lives up to I and II. I just want some conclusion to the story.

I wonder if Shenmue will ever return to a bigger city again.

YSNet is licensing the Shenmue license. How much would it be to license Space Harrier, Hang On, Afterburner, Outrun, Daytona, and VF2?

That trend line is the current daily average stretched out to the end, which is impossible to keep up. $7-$8 million is possible, though.

You mean, how much would it cost to get rights to games that Sega might actually care about versus the rights to a game they have zero interest in? "More" is the answer to that, and I rather think you should be wanting them to put that money into core gameplay elements [cutscenes, combat, voice acting, graphics] than fun little additions.

I think I'm going to get my sibling's name in the credits. Shenmue was the game that got them into gaming and a lot of my fondness for the title stems from that. (Got a call from mom once asking what they were playing that had them asking people where they could find some sailors. :dead) I had to cut them out of my life this year but I still love them and I hope they play this and see their name. :uguu

Like, I don't really care that much about playing Shenmue 3. I played the original back in the day, liked it okay and thought what it did was pretty amazing at the time, but I didn't even play Shenmue 2 all that much. To me, though, the Shenmue 3 announcement is what E3 is all about: crazy surprise announcements that people go nuts over. Seeing the extreme reactions from people made it totally worth it.

I have zero interest for shenmue 3. Played the originals and thought they were mostly over-rated even back then although they had interesting little bits in them. That being said, good on them for making something for the audience that wants it. It's no different to me than any other kickstarter. If it interests a person. That's cool. If it doesn't that's cool too.

Who said anything about value? I want to donate 200 dollars, but the rewards are mostly the reason.

At the 200 dollar level I would get:



- Printed artbook curated by Yu Suzuki
- Backer-only Advanced Technique Scroll (In-game Item)
- 20 Capsule Toy Tickets  (In-game Item)
- Mp3 download of the original soundtrack with unreleased tracks
- Shenmue 3 T-shirt
- Digital copy of the trial version for PC
- My name in the credits.
- Physical PC version.
- Be able to participate in surveys and vote in polls for the ideas you want to see in the game.

I usually scoff at collectors editions and stuff. I find all of that stuff extraneous and stupid, but not with Shenmue. I want it all. :rejoice I'm considering doing the 250 level for the physical OST.   :mynicca Shenmue II didn't have a soundtrack released and I want in. :hyper

Are the Toy Capsules physical or is it an in-game item? The wording is sort of confusing me and would like some clarification.

"An actual toy capsule that will appear in the game!"

Leaning towards the former though.

Yu posted a plog on Playstation.

Quote
Hello everyone. Yu Suzuki here. It has been 14 years since Shenmue II first went on sale. The game system it was released on, the Dreamcast, is not around anymore, but the voices of the fans that have been eagerly awaiting the sequel are still there and are as loud as ever. Any country I visit for work, any event where I am up on stage, any interview I do, the question I always get asked is, “When is the next Shenmue coming out?”

Moved by the fans and their passion, I have been constantly doing my homework and preparing for this day. And here it is — today marks the beginning of the Shenmue III project on Kickstarter. If there were to be a sequel to Shenmue, I wanted the voices of the fans to be heard, so we could make it together. I knew that could happen with Kickstarter.

PlayStation fans love video games, deeply understand video games, and have great ideas about what video games should be. Your support and cooperation will be absolutely necessary for this project. Our Kickstarter goal of 2 million dollars is certainly not an easy one. However, if we do reach that 2 million dollar mark, Shenmue will live again on PS4 (and PC).

The more our project can collect for game development during this campaign, the more the game will come alive — with more quests, more story events, more mini-games, the addition of a free-battle system, and more fight options. Stretch goals are part of the project to show supporting fans what they can expect as project funds increase. Like at the 2.5 million dollar stretch goal, Shenmue I & II flashback scenes will be added.

If you have not heard of Shenmue or are a first-time Shenmue gamer, this stretch goal will give you an even deeper gaming experience. Both you and your friends will benefit from your support, and you will be helping to create the next generation of Shenmue fans.

One of the rewards for the project will be the Shenmue III Demo Version. Something like this, of course, was not around for I & II. This is a Kickstarter-only privilege that will allow you to play Shenmue III before it gets to the stores. Besides me and the development team, those who play the Demo Version will really have the first word on the new Shenmue III.
We have a lot to show you, so please come and take a look at our project page.
So, until next time!

I'm a massive MS fanboy, and I'm simply glad this is happening. Thanks Sony, you sold me my first PlayStation.

They're angry because they stopped loving games years ago and never stood for anything greater than themselves so seeing our love and self-sacrifice prevail is like two daggers twisting in their hearts. If they even still have hearts. They deserve our pity, not our ire.

Kickstarter for these types of projects is a real shitty way to manipulate the system just to be a barometer for consumer interest. They set false goals and the general public gets conned into thinking games cost a lot lower than they really do.

This project is literally pre-ordering a game for full price years ahead of release. I'll just pocket my money and wait until it's released so I can get a physical boxed version.

I was also there near the very front and people lost their shit. A guy was literally sobbing not in front of me. It was pretty cool though being part of gaming history and being feet away from Yu Suzuki at GDC for his Shenmue presentation and now E3 for this.

Good jon, Yu. You could have saved this person's life by announcing the KS before Friday, but noooooo, you had to give in to the game of hype and console wars.
