New IP From the Yakuza Studio Revealed, Dubbed "Judge Eyes"

The Yakuza studio is on the case.

At the PlayStation Lineup Tour today on September 10, Sega CCO Toshihiro Nagoshi appeared on stage to reveal the Yakuza studio's brand new IP. "Project Judge", or "Judge Eyes" as it's being called right now, will release later this year on PS4.

However, the release date of December 13, 2018 only applies to the Japanese version of the game. Judge Eyes is due for release in the west at some point in 2019, and as the title suggests, you play the part of a Japanese lawyer, tasked with bringing criminals to justice in the courtroom.

Details are somewhat scant on Judge Eyes right now, and even the title of the game isn't confirmed. This new IP from the Yakuza studio under Sega doesn't come as a surprise though, given that Nagoshi-san revealed that they'd be revealing a new IP in the coming months.

What we do know is that there's a demo available for Judge Eyes today, but it's only available on the Japanese PlayStation Store. We'll report on further details surrounding Judge Eyes as soon as any additional information is revealed.
