Yakuza: Like a Dragon Western Release Formally Announced

Thursday, September 12th, 2019

On the 29th of August, Yakuza 7 was officially revealed and while an English-translated trailer was shortly available, it was taken down by SEGA Europe very quickly. However, we now have official confirmation that the game is headed West and a new English version of the announcement trailer is available to view.

Called Yakuza: Like a Dragon in the West, this new entry in the series features a re-imagined combat system that features a heavy emphasis on turn-based RPG mechanics. It also features a new protagonist, Ichiban Kasuga. Yakuza: Like a Dragon will launch sometime in 2020 exclusively for PS4.

Sales of Judgment in Japan Halted After Actor Arrested for Cocaine Possession

Wednesday, March 13th, 2019

UPDATE 22/03/19: SEGA have confirmed that the character of Kyohei Hamura will be “adjusted” for the final Western release of Judgment, but the game will not suffer a delay. All official trailers and screenshots featuring the character have been removed. The Kyohei Hamura character is likely being re-cast and will now be represented by a different actor in the Western version of the game.

Sales of Judgment have been halted in Japan after the arrest of actor Pierre Taki for cocaine possession. Known as Judge Eyes in Japan, Pierre Taki plays the character of Kyohei Hamura in the PS4 exclusive. This halt on shipments has been done voluntarily by SEGA Japan.

Judge Eyes has been on sale in Japan since December 13th 2018 and is due for a Western release on the 25th of June 2019 under the name Judgment. Presumably, this will now be delayed as the game will likely re-cast Taki’s role with another actor and then re-enter development. There is currently no word on when Judge Eyes will resume shipping or if Taki’s arrest will affect the June 2019 release of the game in the West.

Japanese companies have a habit of dealing with celebrity drug cases in quite extreme ways. It is not uncommon for actors to be entirely stripped of all association to any companies and products they publicise or work with after an arrest involving drugs.

Judgement Launches June 25th on PS4 in the West, Early Access for Digital Purchases Starts June 21st

Tuesday, March 5th, 2019

The latest from SEGA’s RGG Studio, Judgement (known as Judge Eyes in Japan) finally has a Western release date, along with further details on its digital and physical releases.

First of all, the game will be out June 25th, and includes dual audio. Something particularly impressive is the game has effectively been localised twice, as there’s subtitles for the English audio track and a separate translation for the original Japanese dialogue – and there are also subtitles for multiple European languages as well. In addition, the physical version will include reversible cover art, allowing you to display the original Japanese cover art of the game. Finally, it’ll also come with an RGG Studio sticker, to slap wherever you see fit.

All good then, but slightly more questionable is SEGA hopping on the recent ‘early access’ trend. Some publishers have started offering early access for those who pre-order the game, and Judgement is the latest game to do that – digital pre-orders will get access to the game a whole 4 days ahead of physical buyers. It’s a bit of an odd move, but perhaps inevitable as the latest industry trend.

Judge Eyes Becomes Judgment in the West, English Voice Cast Confirmed

Saturday, December 8th, 2018

We’ve known that Yakuza spin-off Judge Eyes is coming to the West next year since the game was announced, but the game’s title was previously up for debate as it was using the temporary title of ‘Project Judge’ in previous promotional material. Well now the game has an official title and that title is ‘Judgment’.

Judgment will also feature an English voice cast for the first time in a Yakuza game since the original Yakuza back in 2006. It has also been confirmed that even though there is English voice work, the game will also ship with dual English/Japanese voice work. The subtitles are also different for the English script and the Japanese script with the subtitles for the Japanese script being more faithful to the original.

You can check out a brand new trailer below to hear the English voice work for yourself:

Judgment will launch exclusively for PS4 in Summer 2009. The game is being developed by Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio.
