SEGA and developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio announced that Judgment would be released for PS5, Xbox Series, and Stadia on April 23 for $ 39.99.
The current platforms’ relaunch has a 60 fps mode, improved loadings, and all DLCs released. In principle, there will be no free upgrade option.
Judgment takes advantage of the new hardware with refined visuals in 60 frames per second and improved load times and includes all previously released downloadable content on these three platforms.
Praised as “the best crime drama not on TV” by the Hollywood Reporter, Judgment was originally released on PlayStation 4 in 2019. The remastered Judgment marks the gritty tale’s debut on Xbox and Stadia.
Judgment is an action thriller that puts players in the shoes of Takayuki Yagami, a disgraced attorney turned rugged private detective, as he uncovers the mystery behind a grisly series of murders. Joined by his partner, ex-yazuka Masaharu Kaito, Yagami must claw his way through Kamurocho’s criminal underground to unravel the truth—as painful as it may be.
In addition to locale, Judgment takes on the classic hallmarks of the Yakuza series through Yagami’s eyes. Fans will recognize rough-and-tumble street fights, engrossing side missions with locals, and comedy breaks with mini-games. Judgment ups the ante, emphasizing investigative gameplay tracking suspects and discovering clues as Yagami walks the thin line of justice in a world of corruption. Packed with a thrilling story, filmic combat, and a cast of intense characters, Judgment will keep all aspiring private detectives on their toes.
Judgment was released in December 2018 for Japan and in June 2019 worldwide for PS4.
