Shenmue 3 has set the Internet on fire. With 31 days remaining for supporters to make pledges to its Kickstarter campaign, over 2 million dollars has already been pledged for the creation of this game. This figure will only rise further in the time remaining. Customers are willing to put their money up front and are showing that they are dying to see this game released.
Yes, Shenmue 3 will be successful, since its previous 2 games in the series have gathered many fans and supporters. It's support on Kickstarter shows that it is one of the most quickly funded video games ever, and they have already successfully reached their funding goal. RPG games have always been very popular, and Shenmue 3 will also be available for both PC and PS4, which makes it more accessible. It has been 14 years since the last game (Shenmue 2), so a long awaited sequel has everyone overly excited for this release.
Shenmue 2 left gamers in a cliffhanger, and Shenmue 3 will continue from where they left off in the second part of the game. In my opinion it will be a great game, based on what i seen from the kickstarter trailer. Luckily they reached the 2 million mark on kickstarter in less than a day.
Shenmue 3 accomplished it's Kickstarter goal faster than any other game proposed on Kickstarter. They received two million dollars in as little as nine hours. There's been a lot of hype over the previous two games, so the build up for this game is incredible. If all goes as planned, the lines to purchase this game in December of 2017 will be extremely long, but worth the wait.
