Sony revealed that Shenmue III, the long-awaited sequel to the popular Shenmue video game series, was launching a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to help produce it during their E3 2015 press event. Legendary game designer and director Yu Suzuki is, as always, at the helm of the latest Shenmue.
Where we left off… Ryo Hazuki has made his way to China in search of his father’s killer. There he meets a new travelling companion, Shenhua, and learns of a legend from her village that has foretold their path together.
The story continues as Ryo and Shenhua start off on a new journey that will take them farther into enemy territory, deeper into mystery, and ever closer to their destiny.
Will the mystery of the mirrors be revealed? How is Ryo’s father connected to all of this? Will Ryo track down the Chi You Men cartel and face Lan Di in a final showdown?
The Kickstarter campaign, which has already successfully raised the goal of $2 million and earned itself a Guinness World Record, has 30 more days to go.
