The Kickstarter campaign for Shenmue III came to a close yesterday with a record total of $6,333,295 pledged by 69,320 backers. Thank you and congratulations to all who participated in that month-long fundraising frenzy.
Immediately following the deadline, Yu Suzuki announced live on Twitch that PayPal donations will be accepted to continue raising that budget through further crowdfunding.
Once details become available on how to donate via PayPal, we will share them here – but we will link to the official source. Please do not send money to any PayPal account that you haven’t verified through any of these information outlets:
Also during the live stream, Suzuki confirmed that the game will be open world, and he will do everything he can to make it the best game possible for the fans. That scope will now continue to expand through PayPal donations.
We will have news shortly on the future direction of the #SaveShenmue campaign, so please stay tuned. In the meantime, we think everyone’s earned a little breather!
