During the Kinda Funny Games Showcase hosted today from San Francisco, California, Sega introduced the official English title of Project Judge by the Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio responsible for the Yakuza games.
The game, which is named “Judge Eyes” in Japan, will be titled “Judgement” in the west. It will come for PS4 in the summer of 2019. On top of that, we learn that it’ll have English voice acting.
The English voice track was presented with a brand new trailer. We also learn that protagonist Takayuki Yagami will be voiced by Greg Chun in English. Issei Yoshino will be voiced by Joe Zieja.
Those who enjoy Japanese voice acting should not worry, as Judgement will also include Japanese voices with English subtitles in North America and Europe. This is a long-standing tradition for Yakuza games, after all. As a matter of fact, Sega is going a step further and will provide two sets of subtitles, one matching the Japanese script, and one matching the English voices.
You can check out the trailer below.
Further members of the cast are Crispin Freeman, Matthew Mercer, Cherami Leigh, Yuri Lowenthal, James Hong, Ed O’Ross, Amy Walker, Matt Yang King, Fred Tatasciore, Brian McNamara. SungWon Cho, Cristina Vee, and Max Mittelman will also make guest appearances.
If you want to see more about Judgement, you can also check out the latest screenshots showing the smartphone’s apps and Yagami’s office, the opening cutscene, the full version of the theme song, and a recent batch of screenshots. You can also download the brand new demo from the Japanese PlayStation Store.
