Judge Eyes Now Called Judgment, Will be Fully Dubbed When it Comes West in Summer 2019

Due process.

A new, fully-dubbed trailer for Sega and Yakuza teams' upcoming game Project Judge debuted on the Kinda Funny Games Showcase today, the game is now called Judgment.

Judgment is the new IP from the developers of Sega's Yakuza series, but based on what we've seen Yakuza fans should expect to tread familiar ground with players taking on the role of a hard-boiled attorney who dishes out justice with his fists.

The fully-dubbed trailer shows off the voice cast and some new aspects of the story including a killer called "The Mole" who apparently takes their victims' eyes. That's probably why the game was teased as Judge Eyes for a while. Voice actor Greg Chun (Overwatch) will take on the lead role of Takayuki Yagami, the fist-flinging lawyer of Judgement.

Sega CCO Toshihiro Nagoshi announced Judgment earlier this year along with a PSN demo which we got to try out. Turns out Judgment is basically a Yakuza spin-off.

Expect ridiculous fighting combos, a hard-boiled story featuring Japan's seedy underbelly, and maybe a silly side quest or two when Judgement comes west in the Summer of 2019 for PS4.
