The Kickstarter page for Shenmue 3 has posted a few videos that give fans a behind-the-scenes look at many of the game’s design elements.


Shenmue 3 developer Ys Net continues to update the Kickstarter campaign page for the game with new stuff. More recently, the developer published video interviews with members of the core design team of the original.

These interviews give rare insight into the game’s creation, design, art, voice acting, and more.

We’ve embedded a few of the recent ones below.

With only four days left on the clock and inching ever closer to $5 million, Ys Net has launched a new website, which will probably present another way for people interested in backing the game after the Kickstarter campaign is over.
