Apparently, Suzuki may entertain the idea of crowdfunding Shenmue III, and/or a potential anime or manga series. The full interview with all of the details is coming soon.
I would support this effort in a second. As many people know, Shenmue II was one of my favorite games of all time, and learning how this story concludes would be a proper resolution for one of the biggest cliffhangers of all time.
Make it happen Suzuki!
