When the fans want something they make it happen.

One of the best things about the world we live in today is that people can have a direct impact on the media they can consume. Kickstarter is a fine example of how, with enough support, anything is possible. Shenmue has been a beloved game of many since its release in 1999 where it helped shape the way open world video games were made.

Now, with the help of nearly 70,000 backers on Kickstarter, Shenmue 3 is nearly here and we have all the details on it so far.

Success story

$60 at Gamestop

Kickstarter works sometimes!

Shenmue 3 managed to raise over $6 million to get the game created, one of the most backs games in history. Can it live up to the hype? We will have to wait and see.

What's new in Shenmue 3?

Update June 3, 2019: Shenmue 3 delayed

In a Kickstarter post today the creators of Shenmue 3 have announced a delay on the release date for the game. Citing the need for "...more refinement before being truly finished." It always sucks when a release is pushed back, especially after waiting nearly two decades for it, but we would all rather have a great game that was late, than a mediocre game on time right?

Shenmue 3 will miss its launch date by around 3 months, changing from August 27, 2019, to November 19, 2019. Not exactly a huge difference, but those three weeks may just give the game the polish we need.

What is Shenmue?

Shenmue 1, 2, and 3 tell the story of Ryo, a young man in 80's Japan, on a quest to avenge his father's death. Shenmue 3 carries on the storyline in 1987, where Ryo has tracked his father killer into the mountains of China.

In a small village, he meets a girl whose apparent destiny is intertwined with Ryo's. Together they go on the journey of self-discovery, with Kung Fu thrown in for good measure.

What kind of gameplay will it have?

Shenmue has always had gameplay mechanics that were ahead of its time. Open world games like Grand Theft Auto owe a lot to the Shenmue games — it was one of the first to have free roaming areas — as well as games that use quick time events (QTE) like Tomb Raider.

Shenmue 3 will likely use a lot of these same mechanics as well as the mini-games from the previous two titles. The mini-games are some of the best parts of the Shenmue series, with Ryo being able to play arcade games, as well as racing around in assorted vehicles.

The main game will feature a lot of one on one fighting, much like Street fighter would, but in a larger storyline. So Shenmue 3 is likely to have Beat 'em up, QTE's, and mini-games, all woven into an open world environment. That is a lot of mechanics for just one game, let's see how well they pull it off.

What platforms will Shenmue 3 be available on?

With the initial release being funded by Kickstarter there are limitations on what consoles it will be available on. Happily, for us, Shenmue will be available for PlayStation 4 in both digital, and physical release, with a special Kickstarter backer front cover. It will also be available for PC for those backers as well.

When and where can I get it?

Despite many setbacks, Shenmue 3 is now set for release on August 27, 2019. While the Kickstarter backers may get their copy a little earlier, you can already preorder it at Amazon for $60 for the digital or physical copy of the game.
