This E3’s been all about old classics, it seems, and Shenmue creator Yu Suzuki doesn’t wanna be left out. At Sony’s E3 2015 conference, Suzuki announced that he’s formally launching a Kickstarter for the series’ long-demanded sequel.
Shenmue 3, as it’ll be officially named if made, needs $2 million in pledges by July 17th and has 31 days left for you to pledge. Last we checked, the project had already amassed over half-a-million dollars at the time of this writing in less than an hour of its reveal.
Shenmue isn’t the first formally dead game series to head to Kickstarter for a crowd-funded revival. Konami’s Castlevania series now has a successor in Bloodstained and Mega Man has Mighty Number 9. We’ll see just how long Shenmue III possibly needs to get funded.
