Judgement is an action-adventure video game developed by Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio and published by Sega. It is a spin-off of the very popular Yakuza series.
Judgement is an action-adventure game with a third-person perspective. The game follows private detective Takayuki Yagami as he investigates a serial-murder case in Kamurocho. This is a fictional district of Tokyo, Japan, previously featured in the Yakuza franchise.
Yagami can buy healing items in real life-based stores to restore his health, like in the Yakuza games. He can also suffer a major wound if an enemy weapon, like a sword, strikes him. This decreases Yagami’s maximum health, and meals cannot restore it. The player can meet a doctor who treats people in secret who can either treat Yagami to erase the major damage or they can sell an item that will heal his wounds.
Judgement features a similar combat system to that of Yakuza 0. Where players can change between two different fighting styles at will. The crane-style, focused on fighting groups of enemies. Or the tiger-style, focused on fighting individuals.
Other Game Features
The game also features an investigation mode, where the player must search a scene for clues and evidence of a crime. Players must infiltrate areas by lock picking and use disguises to gather information or find objects of interest. The game also has sections where the player must pursue a suspect. These take the form of tailing sequences, where players must follow a suspect while avoiding being seen, and chase sequences, where players must avoid oncoming obstacles while running to catch a fleeing suspect
A remastered version of the game, under the subtitle Remastered in Japan and Asia, is set to release for the PlayStation 5, Stadia and Xbox Series X/S on April 23, 2021

I am a Content Creator who also Live Streams. I love playing video games, talking about video games and I also write about them as I am an editor for a gaming magazine.
What genre of game do I play? Indie games & story driven games mostly.
Other than that my time is taken up being a Mamma. Yes, I am half Italian and you will find the odd Italian word or phrase being dropped into my streams. Particularly when I become excited 😎
Too many games not enough time!
