As of yesterday on KICKSTARTER, Ys Net launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring Shenmue 3 back to the fans that have been dying for this game. It has been 14 years since the last game hit the shelves for Dreamcast. In my opinion this is what makes Kickstarter so awesome, to be able to bring cult classic games back to the market. There is a market for these games contrary to the gaming industry thinking, like they know what we want all the time lol. Back to the Kickstarter, If you are not familiar with Kickstarter, it is basically a crowd sourcing website for ideas. Projects have a time frame and reward tier based on the donation. If the project is successful your donation is taken out of your account, if not then nothing is taken. Once you back a project, you receive updates on that project, mainly just for the backers. I personally have been using Kickstarter to back all kinds of projects. Here’s where you can donate to Ys net project. So far they have met their goal of 2 million dollars, but they do have stretch goals.
Ultimately, this game will be coming out now for what platforms remains to be seen. Right now they just mention PC and PS4, but I would love to play it on Xbox One. In my opinion, I always thought Xbox was similar to Dreamcast. More info is available on their Kickstarter site……………..I can’t wait for this game!
