In a recent announcement by Kickstarter, the company stated that Shenmue 3 has beaten the previous record for most funded game on the site. Bloodstained, another Kickstarter game, previously held the title at $5,545,991, and Shenmue 3 beat it with around $6,333,296. The game is also Kickstarter’s fastest game to reach the 1 million mark.
Because Shenmue 3 reached the 6 million dollar goal, the game will also get a more advanced fighting system, something that many people have asked for. With that, players have reached all of the stretch goals they have set, and Shenmue 3 will be released in 2017 on PS4 and PC.
