It looks like Shenmue hasn’t quite disappeared form the mind of the original creator of the series, as he has just provided some hope for fans of the series. In an interview with French reporter Sebastien-Adbelhamid, Yu Suzuki stated that he could entertain the thought of crowd-funding Shenmue III in some way or even making a manga or anime series sometime in the future.

It is worth noting that the budget for the first two Shenmue titles was somewhere in the ballpark of $70 million so if he did end up Kickstarting Shenmue III, it would need to pull in a record breaking number of donations to be realized, but a huge showing of fan interest could spark Sega to acknowledge they still own the right’s to the series.

After playing games since a young age and getting into anime a bit later on its been time to write about a little bit of everything.
