Shenmue 3 Teamyu
Doesn’t the world seem a little… different today?
Those words, those crushing little words like “never,” and “can’t,” and “hopeless,” all just got a little weaker.
The air smells sweeter. The stars twinkle brighter. The song in our hearts plays louder.
Because today and for the rest of our lives, we know that nothing is impossible.
We’ve proven it. And we’ve seen it with our own eyes.
Shenmue III has been saved.
In just nine hours and seventeen minutes, a so-called vocal minority of fans did what Sega has spent the last fourteen years refusing to do. Yu Suzuki now has the funding to produce the third game in the series, and the more pledges that continue rolling in over the next thirty days, the bigger and better the game will become.
It’s surreal, it’s dreamlike, but it’s 100% confirmed: Ryo’s leaving the cave at last.
Somebody better warn Lan Di.
We’ll have more to say in the coming days and weeks about our perspective on these events and the future of the campaign (hint: we ain’t done yet), but for now the sole focus for every Shenmue fan should be obvious: breaking more records with the Shenmue III Kickstarter, reaching those stretch goals, adding even more and making the game that would never happen the very best that it can be.
Don’t go waiting till July 3rd to start spreading the word. Team Yu needs YOU today!
