Shenmue III Kickstarter was facing some problems where it slowed down considerably due to the announcement that Sony was behind the project. However, the devs have clarified everything about the Kickstarter and encouraged people to pledge more.
It only took the announcement of a physical PS4 copy tier that the Kickstarter picked up considerable steam. There’s only 11 days to go for the Kickstarter to end and it looks like they may hit 5-6 million. The game was fully funded in 2 days and that was a record in itself.
The PS4 physical copy is called the Special Backer Edition and will cost you $60. So if you have pledged $30 for the digital edition, now would be a best time to up it.
We will keep you updated once we hear more on this and whether the PS4 Special Backer Edition is exclusive to Kickstarter users or not.
