Sega has previously announced Judge Eyes: Shinigami No Yuigon, the Yazuka-esque game starring Takuya Kimura. The game is out today in Japan, and the publisher has also announced that it will be made available in Summer 2019 for the Western market. It will also have a new name – Judgment.
For what it’s worth, it looks like the long wait is justifiable if you prefer English dubs for the game. As for those who prefer the original voices, there’s good news too, as the game will launch in dual audio.

Subtitles will also come in both languages, but it’s important to note that the English subs will match the English script. It remains to be seen if the game will suffer from overlocalisation the way Final Fantasy XV and a number of other games did.
For anyone wondering about the original Japanese VO in Judgment, the game will launch with dual audio, meaning you can swap back and forth at will!
Dual subs as well based on which audio track is selected – EN matches the EN script, JP subs are the traditional Yakuza experience.

Either way, this certainly adds Judgment into the list of games to look out for in 2019.
