Yakuza: spin-off Judgment will have version for PS5

Yakuza: spin-off Judgment will have version for PS5

As mentioned, Judgment is a spin-off to the highly popular Yakuza series.

With a new generation of consoles now upon us, SEGA has confirmed that Judgment will be released on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and Google Stadia platforms on 23 April 2021, at a price of $39.99 Dollars or local equivalent.

As you might have guessed, Judgment will be receiving an upgrade on Sony and Microsoft's newer hardware.

Although it doesn't bear the Yakuza name, Judgment is set within the same universe.


The game follows Takayuki Yagami, a lawyer who attempts to solve the mystery behind a series of murders.

Judgment borrows the same over-the-top combat from Yakuza, spliced with some movesets specific to Yagami's own fighting style. As such, it will be interesting to see just how much better looking and better running the game will be with this remastered release.

Alongside the news comes confirmation that a PS4 to PS5 cross-buy scheme, nor a PC release on Steam, will be offered. There's a few things to unpack here, beyond the Stadia push, most notably the Xbox Series X release.
