It has been a little over a year since the announcement and successful funding of Shenmue III on Kickstarter, and a lot has happened since then. In celebration of that last year, Suzuki-san has decided to release a video that thanks the fans for their continued support and discusses the project a little bit more. In it, Suzuki states that Shenmue III has really gotten off the ground in the past six months, and “battle and facial expressions are coming together.”
Additionally, according to the latest update, the surveys have not been sent out yet and will be announced in a future Kickstarter update. The survey “will confirm all of your reward details (platform choice, T-shirt size, etc.) and shipping information.” Hopefully they release more gameplay footage in a future update as well!
