Shenmue 3

The Shenmue 3 Kickstarter funding campaign is the more successful campaign ever launched, with the project receiving over $6 million in one month. However it was pretty clear right from the start that this wasn’t going to be enough to allow Yu Suzuki to create the game he wanted to make. Considering all this, it’s not suprirising to see that another funding campaign has been launched in the past few hours.

A few hours ago, the Shenmue 3 Slacker Backer Campaign has been launched on the game’s official website. The campaign will allow those who haven’t been able to contribute to the Kickstarter one to fund the project. This new campaign will last until December so make sure to contribute as much as you can if you want to help the team make the best game they can. You can learn more about the Shenmue 3 Slacker Backer Campaign by going here.

We haven’t heard much about Shenmue 3 for a few months. Back in July, series creator Yu Suzuki updated fans on the game, revealing that development had just started and that he will keep listening to fans’ feedback to make Shenmue 3 the best entry of the series.

The Shenmue 3 Kickstarter campaign has been launched right after the end of Sony E3 2015 conference, where a new trailer of the game has been shown. The campaign’s goal of 2$ million has been reached in less than 24 hours, showing how much fans want a new entry of the series.

Shenmue 3 will be the direct sequel of Shenmue 2 and will follow Ryo Hazuki  as he searches for his father’s killer. The game is being developed at Neilo, featuring a team composed of key members of the original team.

Shenmue 3 will be released on a yet to be confirmed date on PlayStation 4 and PC. We will keep you updated on the game as soon as more comes in on it.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.
