Do the japanese know about this kickstarter?
There is a japanese shenmue iii website that directs to the kickstarter site, but the kickstarter is only in english.
That will be an obstruction for some or many to donate.


They also have it in Japanese, fyi. You just have to be able to read Japanese in order to know where to click.

So you missed the part where he said Yu and Sega had worked out a deal to kickstart it, prior to any Sony involvement, I'm guessing?

But no others let diehard fans through money at the screen harder than Kickstarter!

I mean, if you can get a customer to pay $10,000 fo for your game, wouldn't you let them do it?



I predict NX launches in 2017 - not 2016

This isn't akin to Kick Starting something like "Last of Us 2".

This is a dead series that was a cult classic and we heard no news for a decade. No company was backing this project and Sony figured out a way to play it safe and give people what they've been begging for 14 years to have. I never thought it would happen, so not really bothered by the details of how it finally came to be.



Xenogears!

yes, but people when its time to ask (specialy on the internet), everybody is IN, when the thing finaly arrives, lots look away and whistle, in kickstarter is "put your money where your mouth is" this is real demand...

i have no problem with this, no one is pointing a gun at ones head.



Proudest Platinums - BF: Bad Company, Killzone 2 , Battlefield 3 and GTA4

Tenchu or shinobido. There are no other games like those two and Sony have been really close to From Software recently.

A new Tenchu with online ideas from the souls series would be awesome.



there is potential for abuse but this is actually exactly what kickstarter was intended to do.

shenmue was dead. deader than dead really. it's been 14 years. the last game was a financial disaster. the IP is owned by a company that isn't doing great and focusing on mobile mostly. shenmue would have never happened without kickstarter and that's exactly what kickstarter is for,.. to get a project started via crowdfunding when the no suits anywhere are willing to make the investment.

the kickstarter investors get the game for half price, the project is actually moving forward. win/win.
