Announced earlier this month as a $60 Reward, the physical version of Shenmue 3 on PlayStation 4 and PC might not be available at retail stores when the game launches in late 2017/early 2018.

Responding to a VG247 question, Ys Net said, “Whether Shenmue 3 will be available for retail or not is currently unconfirmed.” If they do have anything to say about this though, it will be posted on their Kickstarter campaign, which ends tomorrow night.

With just 34 hours to go, Shenmue 3 sits at $5.2 million, meaning it’s $400,000 back of the $5.6 million it needs to set a Kickstarter record in the Video Games category.

It also appears as though the campaign won’t reach the $10 million mark needed to give Shenmue 3 the features of a true open-world game. However, it could reach the $6 million Stretch Goal, which would expand the Battle System and add advanced Free Battle.

Will you be supporting the Shenmue 3 Kickstarter in its final hours?
