With the Yakuza spin-off Judgment coming west in little more than a month, Sega and the Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio are ramping up the promotion for the game.
Recently they released a few trailers introducing two very relevant characters of the game, the protagonist’s buddy Masaharu Kaito and prosecutor Mafuyu Fuji.
While in Japanese they’re voiced by Shinshu Fuji and Risa Shimizu, this time around we also get to meet their English voice actors, Crispin Freeman and Cherami Leigh.
You can check out all the videos below.
A true friend will always have your back with a flying kick… well at least that’s what Kaito seems to go by.

A brilliant prosecutor with a strong sense of justice, Mafuyu Fujii seems to have a bit of a history with Yagami.

If you want to see more of Judgment, you can check out more videos starring Kazuya Ayabe’s voice actor Matt Yang King, the protagonist’s voice Greg Chun, a series of character-dedicated clips, and another trailer, which showcases the new character model of villain Kyohei Hamura.
The game is already available in Japan and is coming west exclusively for PS4 on June 25. That being said, Sega is considering PC and “other formats” down the line.
