Koji Igarashi’s Kickstarter campaign for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night was previously the most funded video game to be on Kickstarter, however this record has now been beaten by the Kickstarter campaign to create Shenmue 3.
Bloodstained finished its Kickstarter campaign with $5,545,991 in donations whereas Shenmue 3 currently has 11 hours left to go and has $5,626,737 in funding. With 11 hours left to go, it’s possible that we might see Shenmue 3 reach the 6 million mark.
The Kickstarter was first announced at E3 a few weeks ago and fans were falling over themselves to help support the project. Some critics wondered why such a big project was being funded by Kickstarter but it has since been announced that there will be more funding from third parties.
