    If you were hoping for developer Ys Net to make another showing of their upcoming entry in the Shenmue series during E3 this year, then things might be looking a little bleak. Today, on their Kickstarter page, they revealed that the game will not be shown at all during E3 2017. The latest update to the game consists of a less than one minute video, that showcases a singular character model. Shenmue III was announced during Sony's press conference, back in 2015, where it raised a record breaking 6.3 million dollars in funding. The game is still set to launch Holiday 2017, for PC and PlayStation 4, despite not making an appearance at E3...

    Not really surprised. Kickstarter projects are good at disappointing.

    The "don't expect anything good" mindset makes a glorious return.

    E3 should just be shut down, since nobody will be attending.

    Earth, bro-dude.
    Until it does a Mighty #9. Delays, needing more funds, more delays, and letdowns or a FF VII and Shenmue becomes a pure Tetris clone with Ryu's face.

    I'll totally forgive them for the multi-system-spanning question of, 'Have you seen my father?' if it actually turns out good......and comes out in 2017.

    In that case I'm hoping the recent rumours of a HD remaster of the first 2 games will be announced and shown off.

    It has been a smart move by Nintendo to showcase and release an HD version of a Zelda game to appease people and calm them during sequel delays, so that strategy just might work.

    I'd prefer they make more time developing the game rather than wasting it on E3. I hope they will deliver sooner or later. A good developer update would be great especially to the backers for their peace of mind.

    It doesn't take that long to make a 10 minute video showing what they've achieved in a year's time so far which would be perfect for E3.

    If they hire a mod who bans people for complaining or asking for a refund, you'll then know it's all down hill.

    Who's says that? I am really believe they are still on schedule... I wonder how come everyone says they won't make it. I'm not a dev, but how would they know?

    Can't wait for the E3 news:), they wont be there, but maybe Sega or Sony going to bring some hype!

    Are you kidding me?! The entire reason why I made my gaming PC is because of this game... UGH! -OK, Shenmue and nude mods for other games ;)

    I am reminded once again how disappointing Kickstarter really is.

    Definitely going to be delayed. If not, it'll be a rush job with futile attempts at fixing the shittiness with patches. I really hope they don't fuck this game up, but I have a sinking feeling in my gut and it's not just the greasy pizza I had for lunch.

    Shovel Knight nude mods are totally awesome!

    Anyway, I will remain a skeptic until release...

    That may still take time and money away from development, especially if they'd need to allocate resources to make a demo which looks good depending on where development is at.

    If they're still at a stage where allot of test textures and animations are being used, I doubt people would be impressed.
