YS Net gets itself another financial helping hand as Epic Games pledges to refund any Kickstarter backers who felt duped by the game’s Epic Store exclusivity.
In an ongoing theme of the Shenmue series vacuuming up money that’ll never be seen again, Epic’s footing the bill for refunds that neither Ys nor Deep Silver were prepared to pay. Epic has plans to do this for future crowdfunded exclusives as well.
Shenmue III has floated on a sea of millions of dollars, and for a series that’s never made any money, one wonders if it’s worth it.
