Plot Edit

The game follows the story of Takayuki Yagami, a former lawyer who turned into a private investigator.

Gameplay Edit

The game employs a fighting system similar to the one from Yakuza 0 and Yakuza Kiwami where players can change into different styles. Additionally, it features an investigation mode where the player has to find traces of the criminal.


  • Following the release of the Japanese version, controversy arose when actor Pierre Taki, who portrayed Kyohei Hamura in the game, was arrested for cocaine use. The localization of Judgement was still in progress at the time, and work was quickly done to recast Hamura's role with a different actor, who re-recorded all of the character's lines. Hamura's face was also altered to remove resemblance to Taki.
  • Asahi replaces Suntory as the main beverage brand for the series, various Asahi brand drinks such as Nikka and Brown Forman subsidiary brands replace many popular brands from Suntory (see Product Placement).
  • If the controller speaker is enabled, the phone sounds will come through both the main speakers and the controller. As there is a slight delay between the main audio and the controller audio, this results in an echoey sound.
