Not long ago fans who supported the crowdfunding campaign of the long-awaited Shenmue III on Kickstarter raised an eyebrow when they saw that the PC version had just moved to the Epic Games Store, resulting in numerous reimbursements. Today, the controversy continues: according to some users, the version that will be delivered to the patrons of the game will be different from those that will be marketed in stores, and does not include reservation incentives, season passes or Deluxe edition material.
” The standard and Deluxe versions [of Shenmue 3] that are launched through stores are not affiliated with the crowdfunding campaign ” Ys Net explains to a user. However, as expected, it seems that the patrons of the new adventure of Ryo Hazuki can be done with the season pass separately, if they wish. That said, the edition of Shenmue 3 that will be sent to the patrons will include some unique content that the rest of the players will not be able to access in any way. As of today, Shenmue 3 has the support of more than 69,000 devotees on Kickstarter.
