New Shenmue III Screens, Two Kickstarter Backers Get Their Reward

News Images II - 08230

Want an update on the development of Shenmue III? Of course you do.

And creator Yu Suzuki was nice enough to deliver exactly that during the Monaco Anime Game International Conference. This included several gorgeous new screenshots (here's one and see the others at DualShockers).

These represent a work-in-progress project, of course, but they're still worth ogling. Also, two people who pledged $10,000 for the opportunity to have dinner and go to a planning meeting with Suzuki get their reward this weekend, as the creator said in a new Kickstarter update:

"What exactly will get planned at the meeting? Well, we will all have to wait and find out..! Wish our backers good luck as they head into the most important meeting of their lives (or maybe at least of the weekend)!"

Last year, the Kickstarter campaign raised over $6.3 million after the announcement shocked the world at E3 2015. This was well in excess of the $2 million goal, though also well shy of the $10 million Suzuki hoped to raise in order to deliver a "full" open-world experience. Hence, the "slacker backer" campaign that let people continue to contribute to the project through the end of 2015.

Ys Net hopes to deliver the long-awaited Shenmue III in December 2017 for PlayStation 4 and PC.

Still really can't believe this is happening. Just seems surreal at this point.

For some reason i was staring at that trailer again all misty eyed.

The shots look good especially that pink cherry blossom one, stunning.

Beautiful! There's even bad dialogue :)

But will it be in time and run on Dreamcast 2? ;)

I know, that was amazing. Didn't ever think we'd get a modern game with dialogue so awesomely bad. There was a certain charm that old games had with their wonky physics and bad dialogue. Resident Evil needs to take notes here, I want RE7 to have RE1/RE2 style dialogue. Haha

"Ryo, can you say anything than yeah......yeah."

Hope they remake 1 & 2 HD and will include it in the bundle for those that miss out on the previous part.
