We're doing a news story so it will be great to get quotes from readers to see how they feel about the recent announcement.

It's finally happening! :D :D :D

I doubt it will be as special as the two earlier games, though (<Don't quote this lol).

I spent all day half-jesting that I was waiting for it's announcement. Moment the music started playing, damn well nearly jumped out of my seat. Kickstarter went down, my facebook feed went absolutely bananas with Shenmue fans, and I woke the girlfriend up to tell her (...she didn't care). Excited? Just a tad.

Very fond memories of playing Shenmue over Christmas many, many years ago, so I will certainly be backing this. I might even have to get my Dreamcast out of the loft & replay both games again in the near future.

I'm not excited as the originals didn't interest me BUT have backed it anyway to encourage this sort of thing!

It completely passed me by at the time, I played the 2nd one on the XBox yeeeeears after it came out & it's not for me, I guess you "had to be there" at the time. I'm really pleased for all the folk who've been praying for the 3rd instalment that it's finally going to happen, much like I was for Duke Nukem Forever....hmmmm probably a bad example.

Why does it look worst than the Dreamcast one?

Super hyped. Already backed this for $120 and am tempted to up my pledge especially if they announce a PS4 physical tier. Can't believe this is actually happening, as a whole Sony knocked it out of the park yesterday.

What stretch goal gets us the Dreamcast port? :lol:

But in all seriousness congrats to all the fans that held onto hold it would someday be announced and made. I've yet to playthrough the other 2 fully so anytime SEGA or whoever want to do a HD Remaster Collection.... ;)

The funny thing is, Yu Suzuki has already revealed what happens and I'm interested to see how the third game handles it. Also makes me wonder if further Shenmue chapters might happen one day, Yu did seem to indicate in his E3 video that III wasn't the last game in the series, though who knows if it'll ever be possible to get more, since its taken this long to get a Shenmue III announcement.

Found out about this morning through my mad online shenmue group. Waited for the girlfriend to leave then immediately spent all the holiday budget on it. Guilin 1986 is the only destination I'm interested in now :) - completely over the moon and so happy for shenmue 500k , shenmue dojo and everyone else who just couldn't let Shenmue go :) emotional day and now we're gonna smash kickstarter records :)
