Yes, you’ll be able to judge SEGA’s Judgement from June 25th, when the game is released worldwide on PS4.

Judgment comes from the SEGA development team behind the popular Yakuza series, and is looking very similar, sharing the Kamurocho setting as well as having similar fighting mechanics.

The protagonist is Takayuki Yagami, an ex defence-attorney whom has now turned his hand to being a private detective. He’ll be investigating a serial killer.

Judgment will feature both English and Japanese audio options, which is unusual as the Yakuza series hasn’t had such an option since the very first game. It has also been said that it will feature a very authentic Japanese translation.

If you pre-order the game digitally, you’ll get early access from June 21st. If you purchase the physical copy of the game, it will come included with a reversible cover, which will include the original Japanese cover art as an option. Judgment is available for pre-order right now.
