shenmue3When you need cold, hard cash, who are you gonna call? Not the Ghostbusters for sure, but rather, the power of crowdfunding. Shenmue 3 has apparently launched as a project over on Kickstarter, and you will be pleased to hear that within 9 hours of its Kickstarter launch, it had already surpassed the goal of $2 million. In fact, as at press time, the amount pledged stands at an impressive $2.7 million, now how about that for dedication amongst gamers?

Shenmue 3, which saw a trademark filing appear one and a half years ago, has been revealed by Sony alongside The Last Guardian as well as other announcements during its press conference at E3 2015. For those who are new to the video game scene, you might be wondering what the fuss is all about concerning Shenmue 3. Well, this happens to be the long-awaited instalment to the critically acclaimed open world series, where it first debuted on the now defunct Sega Dreamcast right before Y2K, with Shenmue 2 being introduced in 2001.

Shenmue 3 will see the story continue from the end of the sequel’s narrative, where Ryo Hazuki has made his way to China in order to hunt down his father’s killer, but not before (how serendipitous) meeting a lovely looking travelling companion who goes by the name of Shenhua.
