Shenmue 3 official website opens, Kickstarter has 4 days to go

Ys Net has opened the official website for the highly anticipated Shenmue III, as the project’s Kickstarter initiative enters its final few days.

The gentle and somber Shenhua, and Ryo, jacketed in fearlessness, are reunited and reborn in Shenmue 3. Get swept along with them on this uplifting journey. This is the new era of Shenmue,” reads the site.

At present the site doesn’t hold a lot of info that you can’t find on the Kickstarter page, although there’s still a few things worth checking out, such as a character render and profile module and links to some brilliant Shenmue community websites.

Shenmue III is due out on PlayStation 4 and PC in December 2017. The game has presently raised just over $4.7 million with four days to go. The game smashed its $2 million goal in less than 24 hours following its announcement at Sony’s E3 press conference. It also became the fastest video game on Kickstarter to hit $1 million.

In recent weeks we’ve seen a physical PS4 copy addeed to the list of rewards for backers, while the stretch goals have been raised to $11 million. Even the concept artist for Uncharted 4 and The Last of Us has chipped in on the project.
