As the Shenmue 3 Kickstarter moves into its final hours, Ys Net has released a new trailer for fans to get all excited about.

"We have come to the final three days of the Shenmue 3 Kickstarter! Your support and encouragement alone have already made this project a huge success. Thank you!!!" writes the Kickstarter update.

"But we are not finished yet! It is our pleasure to announce the new scene from Shenmue 3! It is still a work in progress, but Yu Suzuki has sent it with loving care and hopes it will be all that the fans of the series have come to love, and will show those new to the game some of the wonder and magic they can expect from the continually unfolding world of Shenmue. Please enjoy!"

In the scene Ryo and Shenhua have arrived at the Lake of the Lantern Bugs after their long journey. Entranced, they watch the gentle flight of the lantern bugs upon the mirage-like oasis.

It's pretty but still very obviously extremely early footage.

The Kickstarter has raised $4,934,883 with 64 hours to go, so looks highly likely to reach its $5 million stretch goal.
