Shenmue III Funding Now Accepting Paypal

Shenmue 3 Paypal

Shenmue III is funded and it generated $6,333,295 dollars. Roughly 70% is going straight to development. The Shenmue III story begins now.

Kickstarter Shenmue

Yu Suzuki’s Shenmue 3 has surpassed Koji Igarashi’s Bloodstained to become Kickstarter’s highest-funded video game project.

The game has generated more than $6.33 million dollars in pledges while the previous record holder finished with $5.54 million pledged.
