Shenmue 3 Campaign Launched on Kickstarter, Will be on PC Using Unreal 4 Engine



The long awaited 3rd part to the legendary Dreamcast RPG game Shenmue just might finally happen, backed via Kickstarter. As of writing this article, the campaign already has met more than $1.2 million of its $2 million goal after only a few hours of announcement with 31 days to go so it is fair to say that this will really happen.  Onboard are familiar names from the original Shenmue game like Yu Suziki, Tak Hirai, Masahiro Yashimoto, Kenji Miyawaki and more.

After 14 years, the Shenmue saga will continue and will be rendered using Unreal 4 engine. Obviously available for the PC. To contribute and see what perks are available to backers, including stretch goals should the goal be exceeded (which it most likely will), visit the Shenmue 3 Kickstarter page at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ysnet/shenmue-3
