Shenmue 3 being launched via Kickstarter

Shenmue 3 is not only real, but it’s being launched on Kickstarter.

That means that the fate of Shenmue is officially in your hands – and that’s what the development team is asking.

In fact, if you head over to, you can start saving Shenmue right now.

Now Shenmue 3 isn’t just a remake, or even a spin-off.

You’re looking at the real deal sequel to Shemue, which was released in 1999, and Shenmue 2, which hit consoles back in 2001.

The Shenmue 3 Kickstarter needs a cool $2,000,000 to reach its goal and it only has 31 days from now in which to do it.

But, just under an hour after the announcement, it already has over $15,000 to its name.

Shenmue is a open world action-adventure game that became a massive cult hit back in the 90s.

The game has always been celebrated for its sheer level of interactivity and freedom offered to the player.
