A project update on the game's Kickstarter page also offered insight on how the stretch goals, which include three additional areas, were ordered.
"For the different areas that will make up the game, Yu-san felt that he should focus on making each area as fully immersive as possible before moving on to the next new one," reads the update.
"When it was decided Shenmue 3 would be a go on Kickstarter, Yu-san methodically structured how the game would fit together, knowing that it would change depending on how much could be raised here."
The update continues: "The different elements of the game would form a scaffold, building up from each new system and mechanic that would enhance the game as a whole."
Shenmue 3, the long-awaited sequel to a Dreamcast classic, was announced during Sony's E3 2015 press conference. During the event, Suzuki appeared on stage beside PlayStation's Adam Boyes to launch a Kickstarter funding effort for the sequel.
Suzuki said the game would be a "full-on Shenmue experience," and asked for $2 million in initial funding to start work on the project.
It crossed $1 million mark within a couple of hours, and just a few hours later, reached its funding goal.
Suzuki recently addressed questions regarding the funding of Shenmue 3 and Sony's involvement in the project, ensuring fans that crowdsourced "funds are going strictly to Ys Net for development of Shenmue 3."
