Yu Suzuki Seeking Funding For Shenmue 3

Yu Suzuki turns to Kickstarter to fund Shenmue 3

It looks like yesterday’s tantalizing teaser wasn’t just in good fun. Legendary game developer and Shemue creator Yu Suzuki appeared on stage tonight during Sony’s E3 press conference to announce that he is actively seeking to have Shenmue 3 funded via Kickstarter. While it’s disappointing to see the success of the project will depend on outside help, we have no doubt this is one Kickstarter campaign has the potential to give Castlevania director Koji Igarashi’s Bloodstained a literal run for its money.

This news is hardly surprising, as we know Mr. Suzuki has been determined to see the series through for the better part of 15 years, but such a public show of support for the title adds a very real glimmer of hope that we’ll see Ryo Hazuki’s long awaited trilogy finally see its conclusion.
