It seemed like a strange thing to announce during an E3 press conference but between the amount of eyes on the stage and the sheer excitement fans have for the series continuing, Shenmue III continues to surpass its funding goals at an extremely fast past. After meeting the initial $2 million required to fund the project in less than nine hours and announcing some stretch goals, nearly all of the originally announced goals have been met.
With all but two of the original stretch goals already met, the Shenmue III Kickstarter has been updated with even more stretch goals with $5 million being the current limit. The latest set of stretch goals revolve around expanding Baisha Village with new mini-games, missions, and quests as well as including a rapport system, skill tree system, and even a character perspective system that will allow the player to explore the village through the different character personalities.
