New IP From the Yakuza Developers, Judge Eyes, Has a Demo Available Now on the Japanese PSN

Objection.

Judge Eyes, or Project Judge, is a brand-new IP from the developers behind the Yakuza franchise. The demo is available now if you have a Japanese PSN account, so get on it if you're interested.

Made by the people who made Yakuza, Judge Eyes looks like a Yakuza game except instead of a gangster you play as an attorney who solves crimes in the court and on the streets with evidence and his fists.

The stylish fighter lets you do things like kickflip on your skateboard before kicking someone in the face or delivering sweet justice via the sweet science. You get the picture, but I've included the TGS reveal trailer just in case.

Creating and signing into a Japanese PSN account isn't too tricky so long as you know how to navigate the stores and find what you're looking for. There are plenty of guides online on how to create a Japanese PSN account, but the process is simple. Create a new Japanese PSN account online, log into it on your PS4 and navigate the store until you find the Judge Eyes demo. I did it once in college to buy a Japan-only Demon's Souls theme for my PS3.

Judge Eyes will be coming to North America as well, but details are still scant. The Yakuza series is having a boon right now with the most recent game, Yakuza Kiwami 2, available now in North America. Check out our Kiwami 2 review here.
