Judgment Releasing June 21 Digitally, A Few Days Later For Physical

by Imran Khan on Mar 05, 2019 at 08:05 PM

Judgment, the upcoming somewhat spiritual spinoff to Sega's Yakuza series, is Sega's next big attempt to grow the Yakuza base in the west. The game looks similar to Yakuza, but has a fresh coat of paint with new characters and a new story, only really taking place in the same area as the Yakuza games. We won't have to wait too long to get our hands on this new take, however, as the game is coming in June, though which day in June will depend on how you buy it.

If you pre-order the game on the PSN store, you'll be able to start playing it on June 21 when it unlocks on the PlayStation 4. Physical copies won't go on sale until four days later on June 25. It is unclear why exactly this is the case, but it is a trend that is not completely alone in the industry.

You can read our impressions of the first few hours of Judgment right here, where Suriel calls it "a solid opening argument."
