Yu Suzuki’s Shenmue 3 has simply managed to break a record, ending up being the highest crowd funded computer game on the Kickstarter platform. The video game has actually built up more than $5,553,470, just beating out Koji Igarashi’s igavania crowd-funding advocate his spiritual successor to Castlevania called Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night.
Gamespot did a bit of numerical comparisons between different Kickstarter tasks and how much the crowd-funding heavy players have drawn in considering that Kickstarter’s beginning.Igarashi’s Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night managed $5,545,991, but Suzuki’s Shenmue 3 handled to beat it by simply barely $10 thousand.
Suzuki’s Shenmue 3 could potentially end up making simply a bit more as a last push prior to the entire thing ends (as of the writing of this article it still has about a couple of hours left on the clock). As discussed over on Kickstarter update page, the team will certainly be live-streaming the countdown to the ending of the video game’s crowd-funding project on Kickstarter …
Yu Suzuki will be joined with the Shenmue 3 project members in a special live broadcast to count down the final hours as the Kickstarter project comes to a close. Scheduled to make an appearance are animation producer Hiroaki Takeuchi and main character designer Kenji Miyawaki.
Shenmue 3 may be the leading computer game crowd-funding effort on Kickstarter, but as mentioned by Gamespot, the game ranks behind other tasks like the Veronica Mars Movie, the Ouya and Exploding Kittens, amongst other jobs such as Pebble Time, which handled to rack up $20 million in crowd-funding.
To be fair none of those jobs compare to the supreme crowd-funding project known as Star Citizen, which handled more than $86 million in crowd-funding as Chris Roberts and the team at Roberts Space Industries and Cloud Imperium Games are really hoping to make the greatest, most challenging, all-expansive area simulator ever developed.
The video game has actually had its reasonable share of criticism and problems, however it just goes to reveal you that die-hard fans will throw all sorts of cash at the screen to see a dream game come real.
In the case, of Shenmue 3 I believe the game did splendid on the Kickstarter front, bringing in $5 million on a goal initially set at $2 million.
The video game sustained a couple of obstructions in the media when individuals questioned Sony’s participation with the video game after they at first unveiled it on their phase throughout their E3 2015 press conference. It was among the few games that were constantly highly asked for however no one expected to in fact see the game ever get made.

Shenmue 3 managed to share a stage with The Last Guardian and Final Fantasy VII Remake, making it among the huge 3 games that many people visualized as vapor-titles. It looks like Suzuki’s game has actually managed to strike all the essential objectives for becoming a genuine video game, even if it didn’t handle the $10 million mark that the developer had so frantically wanted to bring the “full vision” of Shenmue III to life.
On the upside, it was exposed that there are some secret financiers putting some dimes and dollars into the project and so hopefully we’ll see a completely recognized variation of the game when it lastly does get released.
