After Shenmue III became the most funded video game in Kickstarter history, many fans who had not contributed to the project wondered if they could get a chance to be a part of gaming history. Earlier last month, Shenmue III co-producer Cedric Biscay informed the fans that news regarding a PayPal option would be coming soon. In the latest update on Shenmue III‘s Kickstarter page, Yu Suzuki and his team have finally announced that their “Slacker Backer” PayPal page is now live!
According to their Kickstarter, the Slacker Backer campaign will last through December so people will have more than enough time to donate. Suzuki promises that
Shenmue III will be completed as promised and any additional funds given will broaden and deepen the game mechanics.
“The three month window was set to allow a long enough time to for everyone who wants to support Shenmue III to do so, but short enough to keep the release date on track.”

A variety of rewards from their Kickstarter will be available on their PayPal page, including physical copies of
Shenmue III, t-shirts, and Ryo’s leather jacket. I have already donated a big sum towards the project, but I might spare a couple more dollars towards a PC copy of the game. If you would like to donate to the Shenmue III project, you can click here to do so.
