Judgment, the upcoming legal thriller set in the world of Yakuza, will debut on the PS4 on Tuesday 25th June, Sega has confirmed.
Like the Yakuza series, Judgment will be an action-adventure game that’s played from a third-person perspective. Set in Kamurocho, the story of Judgment will follow private detective Takayuki Yagami as he investigates a serial murder case. Judgment will feature combat that is very similiar to Yakuza Zero as well as an investigation mode that allows players to…well…investigate stuff.
The confirmation of Judgment’s release date comes by way of a new trailer for the game, which shows off a lot of the games different mechanics in action and gives us an enticing look at just what we’ll be able to do in the game, including the quite hilarious “Kick faces!”, which, let’s be honest, we do all enjoy doing. There are also some bloody lovely haircuts on show.
This will be exciting news for BuffNerfRepeat’s own Glen, who fell in love with Yakuza Zero when he found it available at a great price for a limited time. He spoke about how he was finding the game on Episode 18 of our podcast.
Judgment will release on the PlayStation 4 on Tuesday 25th June.
