Shenmue 3 is real, and it may be the biggest Kickstarter yet

New, 44 comments

You might notice a theme in Sony's E3 2015 event: video games people assumed would never happen are actually being announced. The Last Guardian got a release date. Final Fantasy 7 got a remake. And now Shenmue 3 has a Kickstarter.

Shenmue 3 is planned to be released on PS4 and PC, assuming it achieves its Kickstarter goal.

Video games have been a staple of Kickstarter, amassing millions of dollars in support. But Shenmue 3 is arguably the most famous franchise to hit the platform. The page launched minutes ago and is already over $30,000. We'll be monitoring the game over its 31-day quest for $2 million.
