Judgment Heads to PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Google Stadia This Spring

Coming off its release for PS4 in 2019, Judgment will officially head to next-gen consoles and Stadia in April with enhanced visuals.

With its release in 2019, Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio’s Judgment gave players a mystery adventure with the style and flair of Yakuza. It also happened to be DualShockers‘ Game of the Year winner in 2019. If you happened to miss out on it the first time, you’ll have the opportunity to jump into RGG Studio’s title with its upcoming release on new platforms this spring.

Publisher Sega of America has announced that Judgment will release for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Google Stadia on April 23, 2021. The title’s next-gen release will run for $39.99, and will also offer 60fps performance, improved load times, and all of its DLC released to date.

We happened to review Judgment pretty highly here at DualShockers when it released for PS4 in 2019. Our reviewer at the time, Logan Moore, noted that Judgment offers fans of the Yakuza series an adventure with plenty of surprising twists and turns to enjoy. Thankfully, the game’s upcoming next-gen release will give a new audience of players to play it for the first time with some next-gen flourishes very soon.

Judgment is much greater than the sum of its parts. Getting lost in the city of Kamurocho as you solve cases, make friends, and punch thugs into oblivion never stopped being fun even if the missions you sometimes have to do aren’t that engaging. It was easy to overlook most of the issues that I may have had with Judgment just because of how much consistent fun I was having over the course of my experience. While Judgment was my first foray into this world of Yakuza, it most certainly won’t be my last.”

Judgment is available now on PS4 and will be heading to PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Google Stadia on April 23, 2021.
