11 days until the end of Shenmue 3's KS and 4 days until Mattypalooza...

And I'm incredibly nervous about both of them. This Friday we'll find out if the Rumors of DARE are true... WHEN are we getting Point Dread, what will be the fate of the Theoretical 2016 line, and last but not least if we ARE getting Snake Mountain. Of course these would mean two things: I will have a rant ready for here and I'll discuss each item with Rene, Kelly and Joni on Council of the First Ones.

BUT the longer wait will be Shenmue 3's fate. Yes, the game is coming, Yes, there is a special Collectors edition of the PS4 Physical copy, and Yes, Kraptaku's Ben Kucaracha sucks ass for the Anti-Shenmue campaign (then again, Kraptaku  Glorified bloggers tend to be against gaming in general)

The campaign has reached $4,364,547 and we have 11 days to go... Which it isn't THAT bad considering Shenmue is a niche title with a lot less fans than say Castlevania or Megaman.
This amount was reached despite numerous anti-Shemue clickbait posts from dickweeds who want this project to fail.

Now, I have to be realistic here, while it'd be AWESOME to reach the 11 Million just to get the ultimate stretch goal we have on the list; I don't think we'll reach that amount. I'm glad we have reached the $4,364,547 we have reached as of the time of writing this rant. I'm hoping for at least the 5 Million dollar goal to be reached before the end of the campaign. If we get a LOT MORE, then so be it!

I want to thank all the Shenmue fans who have helped make this a reality. Also, special thanks to Corey Marshall who is coming back to reprise his role as Ryo Hazuki. Obvious thanks to Yu Suzuki and the people who made the past two games and the people who WILL MAKE 3 is obvious.

Hello Everyone!
Just in! Corey Marshall, the actor who did the English voice acting for the main character Ryo in Shenmue 1 & 2, is now confirmed for Shenmue 3!
The support for Mr. Marshall to reprise his role as Ryo has been just overwhelming!
We would all like to thank Corey-san for coming back, and especially for all the support he has given to Shenmue over the years.
Corey is as excited for Shenmue's return as we all are, and to help out, he has magnanimously offered his voice for a special reward. Yes, that's right--get a personal message from Ryo!  Do not miss this opportunity to get a very special message from Ryo himself. Maybe one those classic Ryo one-liners?
The $1,000 Reward for the Corey Marshall as Ryo Voice Message will include the $500 Reward. The Ryo Voice Message will also be included in the Rewards for $2,000 and up.

But I can't believe that this is REAL!!! SHENMUE 3 BABY!! Now if SEGA would just stop making
crappy Sanic games for a moment and do an HD Port of Shenmue 1 and 2 would be great!
