According to the game’s store page, it’s set to release on September 24 in Japan, though no western date has been confirmed yet.
ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES: The game also comes in two editions, a standard one and a Digital Deluxe Edition which includes a season pass and the ability to play the game three days early.
Sega is set to officially reveal the Judgment sequel on Friday, according to a countdown clock the publisher launched last month.
The countdown site says the reveal is scheduled for May 7 at 7am PT / 10am ET / 3pm BST, at which point a trailer on the top of the page will be activated.
In March a number of Japanese trademarks were registered by Sega, including a Lost Judgment one.
Developed by Sega’s Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio, Yakuza spin-off Judgment originally released for PS4 in Japan—where it’s called Judge Eyes—in 2018 before coming west in 2019.
Judgment was released for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and Stadia worldwide last month. Priced at $39.99, the remastered version includes all of the original’s DLC, “refined” visuals, 60 FPS performance and faster loading times.
The game sees players assume the role of lawyer-turned-investigator Takayuki Yagami, who’s working a case related to Kamurocho’s criminal underground.
VGC’s Judgment review said the title “doesn’t deliver on its investigative pitch, but its humour and sense of place still shine”.
