Yu Suzuki and more project members appeared on Twitch to celebrate the final hours of Shenmue 3 Kickstarter project.
Sony will undoubtedly be funding the rest of the development, but Kickstarter was a great way of showing how much the community actually wants Shenmue 3.
According to Kickstarter, Shenmue 3 may make an appearance late 2017.
