Here are some all-new Shenmue III images

Yu Suzuki has shared a selection of new screenshots of the upcoming Shenmue III.  The pretty pictures come hot off the presses from MAGIC (which stands for Monaco Anime Game Interview Conferences, but is less fantastical sounding). ...

Two titles accounted for a quarter of all video game Kickstarter funds last year

Crowdfunding platform Kickstarter had a fantastic year on the gaming front. Between video games and tabletop games, more than $144 million was pledged -- a figure that almost doubled what was pledged in 2014. Of that, some $46 million went ...

Shenmue III's website just got a makeover

Shenmue III might still be set for December 2017, but that hasn't stopped developer YS Net from updating us every month or so, and this time, it has modified the official website. The project seems to be rather slow-going, but it's making p...

Here's what Shenmue III looks like so far after three months

Shenmue III is chugging along, despite the many comments by the developers that they never got enough money to make the "true vision." Regardless, it seems like the project is going well so far, as they've provided a recent update on their ...

Sega is apparently looking into re-releasing the first two Shenmue games

Anyone who knows my gaming habits is aware that I adore the Shenmue series. The second game in particular came at a perfect point in my life, and it got me through some hard times But over the years it's become increasingly tougher to play ...

$6M isn't enough to make Shenmue 3 'gorgeous visually'

$6.3 million isn't enough for Shenmue creator Yu Suzuki. Talking to Eurogamer, Suzuki said that while the game will be crafted in line with the funds available to it, the game "doesn't have to be gorgeous visually."

Shenmue 3's 'Slacker Backer' doesn't currently offer the PC version

Shenmue 3, buddy, listen to me. There are so many people excited for you. You managed to break crowdfunding records and everything. Because of that, you need to stop being so damn vague and confusing with how you take people’s money. ...

The Shenmue III reveal triggered a huge spike in Dreamcast sales

Six months ago, if you wanted to buy a second hand copy of Shenmue or Shenmue II on eBay you could do so for in some cases as little as $15. The games seemingly kept low resale value online due to the second game ending on a pretty nasty cl...

Could Shenmue 3 end up looking something like this?

The Shenmue 3 Kickstarter has surpassed five million in funding with just under a day and a half to go, but creator Yu Suzuki has insisted that they need roughly $10 million to have a fully realized open world. It's shooting for the stars for sure, but a number of different choices could have been made to bump the campaign up significantly.   read

Shenmue 3 closes in on five million in funding, check out a new trailer

While Yu Suzuki may need $10 million to see a "fully realized open world Shenmue 3," he notes that $5 million is good enough to accomplish most of what he set out to do. And it looks like that's what he'll get, as Shenmue 3 is closing...

Mega Man and Shenmue, together at last

Shenmue 3 needs $10 million for a true open world

Shenmue 3's existence is pretty neat. Its presence on a major publisher's stage show to hock a Kickstarter is less neat, to me. Obviously the $2 million goal (and $3.5 million raised at time of writing) would not be enough for Shenmue 3, so...

Is Yu Suzuki teasing something Shenmue related at E3?
