TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--From today, Ys Net will be accepting crowdfunding contributions through the Chinese payment system Alipay on the official “Shenmue III” website. The addition of the payment system will accompany the Chinese language version of the website.
Shenmue III made headlines when it became the highest funded project in the video game category on the world’s largest crowdfunding service Kickstarter, collecting $6,330,000.
With the addition of Alipay, Ys Net is responding to the many requests of fans from the greater China area who were not previously able to contribute to the campaign.
Popular rewards from Kickstarter will be available, including end credit naming ($100), an illustration signed by Yu Suzuki, the game director ($300), and a limited edition figure set ($500). In addition, the game software packaging will feature a different design from the Kickstarter version.
Further contributions will continue to go towards the “Stretch Goals” from the Kickstarter which finished last July. These Stretch Goals increase game features to deepen and extend gameplay, making the campaign exciting for all the fans who have already pledged contributions to the project.
