One of the most requested items for the Shenmue 3 Kickstarter, Ys Net confirmed that a physical PlayStation 4 Kickstarter Backer’s Edition of the game is being offered as a Reward.

Given as a choice to all backers who pledge $60 or more, here’s what you need to know about the physical version:

After the Kickstarter finishes, a survey will be sent out to backers in these tiers to confirm your choice of platform. Choose one of the following:

  1. PS4 Physical Copy
  2. PS4 Digital Copy
  3. Windows PC Physical Copy
  4. Windows PC Digital Copy

Backers who have pledged for a PC Physical Copy will not need to adjust their rewards if they would prefer a PS4 Physical Copy instead.

Just a reminder, the Shenmue 3 Kickstarter will be offering only one copy of the game per backer (Trial Version excluded). 

If you have $1,500 – $10,000 that you want to spend on Shenmue 3, these Rewards were also added to the Kickstarter campaign:
