Judgment (Judge Eyes: Shinigami no Yuigon) (ps4)
« on: December 09, 2018, 10:15:05 AM »
Detective game with yakuza vibes. Initially called "Project Judge" in English, the release title has now been confirmed as "Judgment". Western release set for mid 2019, Japanese release Dec 13 2018.

Toshihiro Nagoshi’s team behind the Yakuza series at Sega has announced its next major work. The PS4 game is called Judge Eyes: Shinigami no Yuigon in Japanese and carries the working title of Project Judge in English. Like Yakuza, Project Judge is a gritty real-world drama set in present-day Japan, but flips the stakes altogether by casting the player character as a former lawyer turned detective.

Project Judge was announced with a brief trailer at Sony’s pre-Tokyo Game Show event today, but a subsequent closed-door conference showed off a lot more footage of how the game plays out. The combat and general movement through the city is extremely reminiscent of Yakuza, but it looks like there’s a lot more variety in the core gameplay. As a detective you have to collect a lot of clues, whether by finding them in person or by flying a drone around the city, and there’s a stealth element to tracking people. Project Judge also shares the Yakuza series’ penchant for quirky, tangential minigames.

English trailer. Hopefully Japanese VO is included as an option in the western release.

Actor of the/a lead protagonist/s has been arrested amid allegations of cocaine use.

Dont know what this will mean for western release date, as the role in the game may be recast (even though the game has already released in Japan - he may be patched out).
