...and Shenmue 3 begins
Thanks to everyone backing, supporting, and getting the word out. Every retweet and repost will bring more backers, and more backers means more Shenmue 3.
Yes, we are at day four of the Kickstarter of the Shenmue of the century. And today we have a special message from someone who has many a “of the” attached to his name—Mark Cerny! If you have played video games before, you probably have played something Mark has either programmed, designed, produced or directed. Oh yeah, he was the lead architect for the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation Vita, too!
Mark was one of the first people to suggest to Yu-san that he do a Kickstarter for Shenmue 3. It was Mark who then introduced Ryan Payton to Yu-san, and that was that!
"It's really exciting to see Yu Suzuki back hard at work in the universe of Shenmue. The first two titles innovated in so many ways - the combination of revolutionary cinematic experiences, deep world simulation, and fresh approaches to gameplay was truly memorable. I can't wait to see how Shenmue 3 turns out!"
Mark Cerny, President of Cerny Games
Thank you very much Mark!!! We all owe you a lot! Just a little while back, Kotaku had a nice sit down with Mark, so please take a look-see!
And before we sign off for today, this Friday Yu Suzuki will be on Reddit! You will have your chance to ask him anything! Time to be announced. Get your questions ready!
Thank you again everyone, see you on Reddit tomorrow!
