It’s hard to believe that it has already been one year since that fateful day, when Shenmue fans heard the announcement that they’ve been waiting 15 years to hear. Sony’s Adam Boyes brought out Yu Suzuki to thunderous applause, and announced that Shenmue III was finally coming out.
One year later, Suzuki-san celebrates the team’s one year anniversary with a video that thanks the fans for their continued support. Suzuki states that Shenmue III has really gotten off the ground in the past six months, and “battle and facial expressions are coming together”.
The Kickstarter update also lets backers know that surveys have not been sent out, and a date for the surveys have not been decided. The survey will be announced in a future Kickstarter update. The survey “will confirm all of your reward details (platform choice, T-shirt size, etc.) and shipping information.”
Hopefully we’ll see more gameplay footage in the near future! In the meantime, check out the latest video above!
