Yu Suzuki considering crowdfunding for Shenmue III

He also wants to expand the story through anime and manga.

There may be hope for Shenmue III yet. At the Monaco Anime / Game Show, French TV journalist Sebastien-Abdelhamid interviewed series creator Yu Suzuki, who said he is considering crowdfunding to develop Shenmue III.

“Yu Suzuki said he is considering crowdfunding like Kickstarter to fund Shenmue III,” said Abdelhamid.

In a separate tweet, he added: “Yu Suzuki would also continue the story of Shenmue through anime or manga.”
