The lights are on
Yu Suzuki, creator of perhaps the video game industry's most famously unfinished franchise, told French reporter Sebastien-Abdelhamid that he has considered crowdfunding to produce a third entry into the Shenmue series.
Sebastien-Abdelhamid is a reporter for French television and he spoke to Suzuki at the Monaco Anime Game Show. He posted on twitter about Suzuki's interest in crowdfunding, and followed up saying that Suzuki has also expressed interest in completing Shenmue's story with an anime or manga series.
Shenmue fans have had their fingers crossed for a third game in the series for over a decade. Maybe the story will finally see its finale! But I'm guessing probably not. Check out our recent Replay of Shenmue below.

I'm not gonna fund it but I will check it out if it gets funded
Lol, it's been awhile...
Oh Yu Suzuki, you are a c**k teaser.
He just wants to play with everyone's minds like Gabe with Half Life 3.
I would pledge an awful lot of money to see a HD remake or a third game to the series. Preferably in that order to build up to it!!
MAKE IT HAPPEN!! Kyle send this to Yu Suzuki and tell him to read the comments section!
God. If this happens, I'll be a happy man!
I think it'd be cool if they did a Shenmue 1 & 2 HD collection for PS3/360/Wii U. That way people, like me, who never got a chance to play the first two games could try them out, and they could get a feel for how well a new instalment would sell.
Sega doesn't own the license?
