Story intro

Judgment is an action-adventure game with a third-person perspective. The game, a legal thriller set in Kamurocho's yakuza world, follows private detective Takayuki Yagami as he investigates a serial-murder case. It stars Japanese actor Takuya Kimura and has a fighting system similar to that of Yakuza 0, where players can change to different styles: crane-style (focused on fighting groups) and tiger-style, which is focused on fighting individuals. Yagami incorporates parkour elements, such as wall-running and leapfrogging, in his fighting style. The game also has an investigation mode, where the player must find traces of the criminal. When asked about similarities between both franchises, Yakuza creator Toshihiro Nagoshi said that "location and assets might be the same, but the gameplay and story here are drastically different". Players must infiltrate areas with lock picking and disguises to gather information or find objects of interest. The game also has sections where the player must follow (or chase) a suspect. Players follow suspects by hiding behind cars and walls while watching the suspect's movements. In chase sequences, players jump obstacles to approach and tackle a suspect. Yagami can take on a number of "side cases" in addition to the "main case" (the main storyline), which are similar to the "substories" in other Yakuza games. He can pick up side cases by looking at the noticeboard in his office, asking at Genda Law Office or Bar Tender, or by walking the streets of Kamurocho. Like other Yakuza titles, the player can find minigames and side activities scattered around Kamurocho which include 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.
