      Ming sounds like Joy to me. I guess even more spirited and lively like Fang Mei

      How would fundraising skyrocket from announcing HD remakes when all old fans have already thrown in everything they've got for 3?

      And once again, a couple million for remaking the biggest Dreamcast games, how would that help the third game exactly?

      if they did announce shenmue 1&2 that would be fantastic think it would be like just after E3 where things going crazy. Funding would definatly sky rocket. Nice interview

      I'm liking what I hear about Mingming.

      I'm looking forward to upgrading the new rewards. I can afford up to $1000, though I'd prefer around $750. Highest on my list of rewards would be a PS4 (with Shenmue art, as someone suggested, if possible) or something that is very important culturally to the Chinese, that's related to Shenmue III (or I and II) in some distinctive ways.

      Don't die on us, we must see Ming Ming live!

      What's Shenmue?

      The finishing touches are being put on the new video to help spread the good word of Shenmue. There have been lots of great ideas and fan videos already out there and we would like to use them all if we could! But we have some great footage on the way to let everyone know about our favorite video game of all time.
