If you’ve played one of the Yakuza games in the past you know they can be lengthy experience and Judgment, Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio’s new game, is exactly the same way. This brand new PS4 exclusive tells an original legal-drama story, and players will probably be wondering how long it’ll take. Well, here’s how long Judgment takes to beat and how many chapters there are.
How Long Judgment Takes to Beat & How Many Chapters There Are
Judgment is split up into 12 different chapters of varying length, most of which will take you a couple of hours to complete. That’s strictly talking the main story, and if that’s all you’re concerned with you can probably beat Judgment in anywhere from 20-30 hours.
Of course, Judgment is just rife with side content to dive into, as is typical of Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio’s games. There are 50 Side Cases to tackle in the game, as well as 50 Friend Events to see, and these will pop up as you make your way through the various chapters in Judgment.
Some of the side content is weaved into the main story, but most of it is going to be optional stuff you’ll need to tackle on your own. Obviously, this can add a ton of time onto your playthrough, upwards of 20-30 hours more honestly.
In our own playthrough, we clocked in at just over 60 hours, taking time to do almost every Side Case and Friend Event, and spending a decent amount of time simply exploring the city and playing minigames.
Judgment is probably the longest Dragon Engine game yet, over Yakuza 6 and Kiwami 2, so buckle up if you’re planning to do absolutely everything.
That’s everything you need to know about how long Judgment takes to beat and how many chapters there are. For even more tips, tricks, and guides make sure to search Twinfinite, or you can take a glance at our extensive Judgment guide wiki.
