Yesterday Yu Suzuki, creator of the Shenmue series, tweeted this image of a forklift, hinting at a possible Shenmue 3 reveal at E3 this year:
Today at Sony’s E3 press conference Yu Suzuki took the stage to finally unveil Shenmue 3–not a spin off, but a fully fledged sequel–albeit as a new Kickstarter campaign.
“We can unfold the continuous story,” Yu Suzuki said on stage. “Shenmue 3 will be the story you have waited for. The fate of Shenmue is in your hands now.”
Despite there being no footage of the game, and announced just moments ago, the kickstarter has already crashed. Hopefully this foretells the demand for the final chapter in the series that has been a long time coming.
What do you think? Are you excited for the announcement? Will you be backing Shenmue 3? Let us know!
