Shenmue 3 – To step up their game after the last year’s announcement, Yu Suzuki made another announcement revealing that their project which is worth $6.3 million is still under process. They used handful of screenshots to make support their announcement. Suzuki along with their entire team was present at MAGIC, Monaco Anime Game International Conferences to give their presentation.
3 different screenshots of the Shenmue 3 was part of the presentation while they admitted that they are still working on it to bring an even better result. Looking at the screenshots, it is obvious that Suzuki and their team are working extremely efficiently on their game. The environments of the game are very beautiful and a lot of attention is given to the details. The entire work is pretty impressive considering its not been long since company started working on this game.
Suzuki managed to create a new world record of being the highest funded video game. Initially, the campaign had a tentative goal of almost $2 million. The company managed to earn their original goal in literally no time. Today, the new and final total of the game has crossed $6 million.
