Yakuza Spin-off Judgment is Coming to PS5, Xbox Series X|S and Stadia

If you’re a fan of the Yakuza franchise then there’s a good chance you’ve heard of Judgment before. It’s a spin-off of the Yakuza franchise where you play as lawyer-turned-detective Takayuki Yagami. You kick butt in a way similar to classic entries in the Yakuza franchise whilst also solving crimes. It became a cult hit when it released back in 2019 and was the first game set in the Yakuza universe for quite some time to have an English dub track.

Roll forward to 2021 and we’re getting a remaster. Not only that but the remaster is coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and Google Stadia. You can check out the trailer for remaster below.

You’ll have to wait a few months to pick up the remastered version of Judgment. If you’d rather not wait though you can always pick up the PS4 original from the GameByte Shop. Or if you fancy another Yakuza experience that is slightly different why not try Yakuza: Like a Dragon?

What Does the Judgment Remaster Add?

Judgment embraces the new-gen hardware and improves the visuals whilst also making the game 60 frames per second. It also improves load times and includes all previously released DLC.

Can I Upgrade my PS4 Version of Judgment to PS5?

When we asked whether an upgrade would be possible for people that already own Judgment we were told “The PS4 version of Judgment and the PS5 remaster will be separate SKUs so there will be no free upgrade/cross-buying.”
