      That would be the largest Kickstarter project ever, next to the Deathstar? :)

      I am sure if it goes to Kickstarter, they will raise a ton of money very quickly from allthe fans of the series.

      Of course, that does not mean it will happen, most likely the company will go under after spending all the money on wine, woman, song, etc. or get bought up by new company since they raised so much money, and its not in the gameplan of the new owners.

      Yu Suzuki may be the guy who created the world of Shenmue, fine....
      But does he also own the rights to it as well?
      How would Sega feel about this. One could only assume that they'd get first rights to publish such a Game it it were ever to come to light. By which time One needs to ask why Sega couldn't have funded this from the get go?

      I mean you could take Duke Nukem 4 ever and repackage that as Shenmue 3, and everyone would line up to buy it.
      So I doubt its got very much that this has to do with Money. Or else it would've been green-lighted yonks ago...
