It’s a new month and the team at Ys Net have posted a brand new update on the Shenmue III Kickstarter page!
While the update doesn’t go into detail on any in-game additions, and in fact there’s only two things discussed, it does give insight on what the team will be doing in the coming months.
The first are the results of last month’s poll where users were asked whether Kickstarter exclusive rewards should be made available for the Slacker Backer PayPal campaign:
The polling period lasted from December 24, 2015 to January 1, 2016. All Kickstarter Backers who pledged for a reward of $5 or more were eligible to vote. Of the 68,533 eligible Kickstarter Backers, there were 15,110 respondents.
The poll results are posted below. 4,670 of the respondents answered, “Yes, please make the Kickstarter Exclusive Rewards available on PayPal.” 4,009 respondents answered, “No, Kickstarter Exclusive Rewards are for Kickstarter only.” And 6,432 answered, “Either is fine with me.”
Considering the strong response from those of you who felt that the Exclusive Rewards should remain exclusive for the Kickstarter, those Exclusive Rewards will not be made available on the PayPal page as originally promised.
Two charts of the results were provided. You can check them out below:
They also confirmed that the Shenmue III homepage has undergone a renovation. Kickstarter updates, Shenmue news and development progress will continue to be reported there. If you want to check out the site feel free to do so here!
