      You guys should clarify your times. 7:00PM PDT is 3:00AM GMT. People in GMT will be confused if they come in at the wrong time and see nothing.

      Justin: Eastern Standard Time will be 10:00PM.

    2. Justin on June 26, 2015

      What is the eastern standard time for twitch stream pls?

      What's the link, and will we be able to view the stream after? Sadly 3AM is a little late for me so I certainly won't be able to watch it live.

    4. Some furf on June 26, 2015

      10 AM Japan time

    5. Goro on June 25, 2015

      Awesome - cannot wait! :D

      Great! Thank you sensei. In Europe is too late but I will watch the record if available. :) Thanks for the support of the campaign.

      they have to reach out for all the fans without labeling them PS fans or whatever that might put some of the people off.

    12. James Brown on June 25, 2015

      Thats great! Cant wait to watch this! Would be great if Yu Suzuki played through the original Shenmue! Would be awesome lol and hopefully get people who arent familar interested in the series and potentially back Shenmue 3 :)

      Pay pal is only really a option later on the campaign. It is rude to kickstarter to set one up halfway through any deal with them expect some deal with Paypal set up with 10 days to go.

    15. Jann Lee on June 25, 2015

      I'm so excited to listen to Yu Suzuki talk more about Shenmue really looking forward to it and is Friday my favorite day of the week. I would like to learn more about Niao Sun one of the four leaders of the ChiYoumen.

      LOL: "The team needs to communicate more" ... "Can you please stop posting updates so often?"

    18. Mantis on June 25, 2015

      Why do you always schedule things for such inconvenient GMT times? If you just did it two hours before this, it would be much easier for most Brits to catch the stream.

    19. Norman Granet on June 25, 2015

      I agree with William here. What he said :
      "GUYS, SERIOUS, WE NEED TO ASK THE KICKSTARTER TO DO A NEW TRAILER, this is the worst trailer I've ever seen in my life, NO SHOWS NOTHING ABOUT Shenmue, just show Ryo Jumping on a Stone, ah, and saying "YEAH".
      The people who never play Shenmue, never will Pledge this project after seen this trailer"

      I enjoy these updates. As a long time fan, the more interaction with this project the better. even if it's a just a simple "Hey guys, we've begun working on thing #27". Knowing that they are actively keeping up with the backers is comforting and let's me know that they actually appreciate the what we've done. I'm sure dev diaries and BTS stuff will come further down the line.

    21. Scherge on June 25, 2015

      @Brett & Andrew
      Nagyfi has a point, though. These updates (minus Yu Suzuki's post regarding the Sony and Shibuya investment) have all been prefabricated messages. Not a single one of them told us anything about the new game. Instead, they play on nostalgia ("What's your favorite character?") or simply show videos of people who were involved with (or just really, really liked) the old games.

      In my opinion, daily updates would be great if they contained new information. We haven't seen anything like that, and we're already at update 14. I sincerely hope these are planned for the second half of the campaign, to overcome the usual drought past day 10. Like:
      - Show a prototype of the new fighting system.
      - Explain how moves are learned and executed.
      - Give us a rough idea of the locations Ryo is going to visit (with concept art, please).
      - Talk about the possibilities of the Unreal Engine in terms we understand.
      - Let the Ys Net team members talk about their ideas and dreams.
      - Reveal that it was all just a joke and that there will, of course, be a PS4 CE for backers. :-)

      @Nagyfi Richárd -- Just change your settings and if you don't want notification mails...

      Maicon got a point. I thought this was some kind of dating sim, but I wondered what the fuss was about so I looked on some let's play from the old games and now I'm backer to. But I think lots of people stop at the trailer and never return.

    24. Chai on June 25, 2015

      I think there should be more updates. I love hearing about different things that are happening with Shenmue 3. We have waited so long, and every little detail is intriguing.

    25. Three Blades on June 25, 2015

      Wow, Nagyfi... the daily updates are a good thing. It means they are actually working to make this campaign a success. Most of us want as much updates as possible. If you really don't like it, you should go into your settings and turn off the emails.

    26. mabec on June 25, 2015

      Two in the morning, awesome.

    27. Nagyfi Richárd on June 25, 2015

      can you please stop posting updates every single day?

      I am very happy you got all this money and as a backer would love to see Shenmue 3 come to life

      but please stop posting every day, I am thinking about withdrawing my money so I could get a break from your update mails

      @Maicon Wiliam Heiber -- Could you please stop spamming Comments and Updates sections with this trailer thing ? We're not backing a trailer : we're backing Shenmue 3, made by Yu Suzuki.

      shu shen on June 25, 2015

      The main reason that trailer is still on is because it has Yu talking..... Unless someone willing to do a another video with Yu in it .. its not going to happen,, most likely they sign an contract with some promotion company to only allow to use their video..

      Same here works out 2am my time.
      2 updates in 1 day now that's what im talking about
      what we really need is an updated version of the stretch goals even if its just where portugese would fit in.

      @Zubair:Agreed Paypal is a great option not just now but after the campaign ends.

      whoop whoop! can't wait to see Sensei do his thing!

    34. Ghost of Duma on June 25, 2015

      This great! I hope they will tell us about those new rewards price and some more footage about Shenmue 3

    35. Nick Chambers (Wickio) on June 25, 2015

      This is how the campaign should have been managed from the start, regular meaningful updates with fan interaction. Much better. Will definitely be tuning in.

    36. Zed_psx on June 25, 2015

      And PayPal option

    37. Zed_psx on June 25, 2015

      Please announce new tiers and stretch goals!

      Needs More Advertising. I only discovered it by watching TotalBiscuit's PS4 video. I've had to tell friends who love Shenmue because they had no idea.

    39. David Deville on June 25, 2015

      楽しみにしております。

    40. Alexandre Tourne on June 25, 2015

      Daniel Bardsley on June 25, 2015

      This is fantastic news. This is what we need right now, more interaction with the fans. More of this please. It may be worth reaching out to other popular gaming sites and streaming interviews for more exposure too. Thanks.

    44. Chris on June 25, 2015

      Sweet, When will the new tiers be released? also when are you guys going to move the stretch goals towards to top of the kickstarter page?

    45. NozomiHarasaki on June 25, 2015

      Nice, I can't wait!!!
