If you’ve played Yakuza games before, you’ll instantly be familiar with a lot of things in Judgment. The latest title from Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio once again has you roaming the streets of Kamurocho, and random gangs of thugs will constantly harass you. Because of that, you’ll need to keep your health up at all times, so here’s how to heal and restore health in Judgment.
How to Heal & Restore Health in Judgment
Your health bar is the bar in the top left of your screen, and you’ll constantly be losing health due to all the fights in Judgment. Luckily, there are quite a few different ways of healing.
The first of these is to simply head to any of the restaurants in the game, the buildings with the fork and knife emblem. Talk to the person running the restaurant and select what food you want, then you’ll see how much health it’s going to heal. You’ll have to pay yen, of course, but it’s usually a paltry sum.
Your other primary way of healing is by using consumable food items, which you can buy at any Poppo store Don Quijote. Food items will restore a bit of health, while medicine like Toughness Z will restore even more.
To use these just open your main menu with Options, then head to the Items menu and the first tab will be Recovery Items. Just pick what you want to use. You can also set items to quickslots by tabbing over to Shortcuts in the item menu.
This way you can assign items to the D-Pad and just instantly use them without opening the menu.
The final way to restore health is by buying the Music Appreciation skill in the Special Tab of the Skills menu. This skill will slowly replenish your health while you listen to music in the Yagami Detective Agency, you’ll just need to start playing a record while you’re there.
Rasing Your Health Bar
It’s pretty simple to give Yagami more health in Judgment, as all you’ll need to do is purchase the skills to do so. Just head to the Skills menu and the Ability tab, and the first option will be Boost Health. The first one is easy to get at only 900 SP, but the others require a lot more at 2700 and 10800.
Still, invest in the first one right away and then the others will come later.
