During a recent Reddit AMA, Yu Suzuki, revealed some new information about the third part in the Shenmue series. As Yu Suzuki said, the game will be a truly open-world if its Kickstarter manages to raise 10$ million. And from the looks of it, this may be achieved as the game has already raised $3.4 million.
As Yu Suzuki said when a fan asked him about the features of Shenmue 3:
“I will say this: if we reach the $5 mil mark, one of the things I really want to do with Shenmue 3 will become a reality.
At $10 million, it will truly have the features of an open world.”
Shenmue 3 will be powered by Unreal Engine 4 and as Yu Suzuki admitted, it will reuse some of the assets from both Shenmue 1 and 2.
“The assets from 1 & 2 will get a lot of use.”
Yu Suzuki then said that if the game does not live up to the expectations of its fans, there won’t be a Shenmue 4.
“If the fans are not happy with 3 there will not be a 4. So I please hope we can together make this game the best it can be.”
Shenmue 3 will be coming to PC and PS4!
