With $6,333,295 pledged, Shenmue III goes down in history as the 6th highest funded Kickstarter project of all time (as of this writing). Small fandom, big dreams. We rallied together and helped to make possible the continuation to one of our favorite games of all time.

Waiting until the Kickstarter was over, Yu Suzuki has now confirmed that, yes, he will be setting up a PayPal option for fans to provide additional funding. Many international fans clamored for PayPal as they were not able to use Kickstarter for one reason or another. Many fans both international and domestic also indicated a desire to see a PayPal avenue opened up as it would allow them to donate smaller sums of money monthly rather than one large sum of cash upfront.

Kid Nocon hired on as part of the Shenmue III development team.

Kid Nocon is a Shenmue fan from South Korea who who remade portions of Shenmue 1 in the Unreal Engine 3 and 4 graphics engines. Two and a half months ago, amidst the fervor of the Shenmue III kickstarter, Kid uploaded his video of the re-rendered Hazuki Dojo in UE4 to YouTube. It caught the attention of many fans and led many to openly wonder if he might not be able to get a job working on either 1) a Shenmue 1&2 HD port or else 2) Shenmue 3 itself.

Well, wonder no more: the Shenmue III team's seen fit to publicly announce that Kid Nocon has been hired. And according to the tweet, he'll be working on Shenmue 3.

I like his work. And I'm very happy for him. I think some of his textures look a little too plasticky -- for example, the wood looks like it's been caked in gallons of lacquer -- but that's what working on a team is all about -- smoothing out one another's deficiencies and bringing the full force of your individual strengths to the table. For the most part, I've been hugely impressed by what I've seen of Kid's work and I think it was a smart decision to hire such a passionate and capable fan onto the project.

It's nice that SEGA actually cares about their past and their franchises unlike Konami. I wish they'd stop trying to reinvent Sonic though. Hopefully if a remake does some out, it doesn't have weird shit in it.
