Shenmue 3 Kickstarter sets sights on $5.6 million funding record

James Orry Updated on by

Shenmue 3 has moved into its final two days of Kickstarter funding, and has now surpassed the $5 million stretch goal.

Currently at $5.1 million with 41 hours to go, the team at Ys Net is now setting its sights on becoming the highest funded project in the video games category – $5.6 million.

The project will, however, need to reach $6 million if fans want to see an advanced battle system implemented.

Ys Net has also announced a campaign final hours Twitch broadcast which will feature Yu Suzuki alongside Shenmue 3 project members such as Hiroaki Takeuchi and main character designer Kenji Miyawaki.

The stream kicks off on this Saturday, July 18 at 12am BST.
