Shenmue 3's Kickstarter Adds Physical PlayStation 4 Copy To $60+ Backing Tier

If you wanted Shenmue 3, but only if it came included with a box and disc – you're in luck.

A recent addition to the Kickstarter campaign, those PlayStation 4 players who back the game at the $60 or higher tier can opt to receive a boxed version of the game as opposed to a digital version. A survey will go out to backers soon to see how they want their copy of the game delivered.

We've talked at length about Shenmue 3's odd kickstarter campaign. You can read more of our thoughts here, here, and here.

Our Take
I'm one of those wierdos that still likes having boxes and discs when it comes to my games, so this is good news. It also shows a fair amount of confidence behind as boxed copies of games are not cheap to produce. By the way, no one seems to remember, but we totally know how Shenmue III is going to end already.
