Judgment & Lost Judgment

The original game Judgment was initially released exclusively for PlayStation 4.

Although it has since released on other platforms, it remained exclusive to consoles even after the sequel Lost Judgment released last year.

As of today (September 14th) both games are now also available on Windows PC via Steam

They can be purchased separately or bundled together, including DLC.

Yakuza like a dragon 8

We knew an RPG sequel to Yakuza Like a Dragon was in development because the studio released some footage from a motion capture session.

However, it has now been officially announced with a 2024 release window.

We also know that Adachi, Nanba, and protagonist Ichiban Kasuga will all return for the sequel.

It has also been confirmed for a number of platforms including: PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Windows PC via Steam.

Yakuza Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Cleared His Name – 2023

The most unexpected game announced by the studio was Gaiden: The Man who Erased his Name.

Gaiden’s story follows Kiryu after the events of Yakuza 6 and takes us all the way to the beginning of Yakuza: Like a Dragon.

Kiryu lives in hiding with a group of monks and has now changed his name to Joryu.

However, the yakuza find him and tell him he must return to work.

The developers also confirmed that the new story will be longer than a DLC side story – it’s a standalone game.
