Story intro

Judgment is an action-adventure game played from a third-person perspective. The game is a legal thriller set in the Yakuza world of Kamurocho and follows private detective Takayuki Yagami as he investigates a serial murder case. It stars Japanese actor Takuya Kimura and employs a fighting system similar to that of Yakuza 0 where players can change into different styles, namely crane-style which is more focused on fighting groups and tiger-style which is more focused on fighting individuals. Yagami incorporates parkour elements in his fighting style, such as wall-running and leapfrogging. Additionally, the game features an investigation mode where the player must find traces of the criminal. When asked about similarities regarding both franchises, Yakuza creator Toshihiro Nagoshi stated that "location and assets might be the same, but the gameplay and story here are drastically different". In addition, players will have to infiltrate areas through lock picking and use of disguises to gather information or find objects of interest. The game also features sections where the player must follow or chase after a possible suspect. Players follow suspects by hiding behind cars and walls while keeping a lookout of the suspect's movements. Chase sequences involve players dashing over obstacles in order to get close and tackle the suspect. As well as Yagami's "main case," (the main storyline), there are a number of "side cases" that he can take on. These are very much similar to the "substories" from other Yakuza games. Yagami can pick up side cases either by looking at the noticeboard in his office, asking at Genda Law office or Bar Tender, or simply walking the streets of Kamurocho. Like other Yakuza titles, the player can find various minigames and side activities scattered around Kamurocho, including fully playable versions of Space Harrier, Fantasy Zone, Fighting Vipers, Motor Raid, Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown, and Puyo Puyo.


Judgment was scheduled to be released on December 13, 2018, on June 21, 2019 and on June 25, 2019 by Sega.
