Another day in Kamurocho
We loved Judgment on PlayStation 4, but over time, our appreciation of this Yakuza spinoff has only grown. Upon reflection, we actually think that our Judgment PS4 review was a bit off the mark, and having now played the game's remaster on PS5, we're fully convinced that this is, hands down, one of the best Yakuza-style...
The truth and nothing but the truth
SEGA's Yakuza Studio has done it again. The Japanese developer has been on a roll this generation, and it's apparently not stopping anytime soon. Judgment is an entirely standalone Yakuza spin-off that attempts to freshen up the formula by adding detective and courtroom elements to an already rich action...
Yagami's detective agency is reopening
Update: Both Judgment and Lost Judgment have been officially announced for PC, as expected. Original Story: Judgment and Lost Judgment are both great games, but in case you didn't know, the franchise's future has reportedly been up in the air for quite some time. Last summer, news broke that SEGA may have...
Along with The Sexy Brutale
December's PlayStation Plus lineup in North America and Europe has not been well received. If you happened to miss yesterday's news, the PS Plus version of Godfall isn't the full game. And, as you can probably imagine, it's sparked a bit of an outrage among subscribers, who feel as though they're getting a glorified demo...
Excellent Yakuza spinoff Judgment has done quite well for itself, following the release of the game's PlayStation 5 version in April. Developer RGG Studio reports that the crime-fighting action RPG has surpassed 1 million units in shipments and digital sales since its initial Japanese PS4 launch in 2018. SEGA must obviously view that as...
Yagami is on the case
SEGA recently registered a trademark for 'Lost Judgment' in Japan, as spotted by Gematsu. There's no clear indication of what 'Lost Judgment' could be, but that hasn't stopped people from connecting the dots; is this a potential sequel to Judgment, the Yakuza spin-off which released in 2019? We can certainly see the...
Possibly after the next Yakuza game
Judgment was one of the best PlayStation 4 games of the summer, so we'll take any news we can get in regards to a sequel. And thankfully, it looks like the odds of one becoming a reality are fairly high if a recent interview with Yakuza series producer Daisuke Sato is anything to go by. Speaking with Spanish...
No objections here
Update: Judgment developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio (commonly referred to as Yakuza Studio) has stated that there have been some problems with the European Judgment demo. As such, it's been temporarily removed from the PlayStation Store. Hopefully it won't be gone for long. If you're having trouble with the demo, then we'd suggest...
Kamurocho's true calling
If you've played a Yakuza game, then you already know how good the side activities are. Often far more in-depth than minigames have any right to be, these optional distractions can be ignored entirely -- or they can soak up hours and hours and hours of your life. I recently played through Judgment for review. Essentially a...
Judgment's out now on PlayStation 4, and we highly recommend giving it a look. But if our review can't convince you, then we'd also recommend giving this incredibly daft Mega64 video a watch. It's got dumb jokes, a hilarious wig, and a sinister guest appearance from SEGA legend Toshihiro Nagoshi. Nagoshi's the director and producer...
The eye of judgment
We're getting very close to the western release of Judgment, the new game from Yakuza Studio. The spin-off, starring private investigator Takayuki Yagami, is similar to the team's other games, but has you on the right side of the law, looking into shady murder cases throughout Kamurocho. In this new, 20-minute gameplay video, we...
Asian Dub Foundation
It’s not long before Judgment releases in the West. A spin-off of Sega’s long-running Yakuza series set in the same streets of Kamurocho, it differs from the mainline series with a dose of detective work and Ace Attorney-style objectioning, while also being the first in the Yakuza universe since the original PS2 game to...
From the makers of the acclaimed Yakuza series, Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio, Judgment is the dramatic tale of a disgraced lawyer seeking redemption in a world rife with corruption and despair. Investigate the seedy Red Light District of Kamurocho by stepping into the mind of private detective Takayuki Yagami and utilize innovative investigation systems to uncover the secrets that lie deep within Kamurocho's corrupt underbelly.
