Here is an overview of the game:
Judgment marks the first time in over 12 years that a game set in the Yakuza series universe has received an English dub for its Western release, the last one being the original Yakuza for the PlayStation 2 in 2006. As a result, some extra work was put in to make Judgment‘s English dub a little more complex than most. We wanted to make sure that we preserve the original Japanese script of Judgment as faithfully as possible. Here’s a breakdown of Judgment‘s dub / subtitle features:
- Dual Audio: Players can switch between the Japanese and English voice-over tracks at any point during the game. Experience Judgment using whichever language you prefer!
- Dual Subtitles: Subtitles change based on which audio track is selected – Japanese or English. Japanese voice subtitles are presented in a way that represents the traditional Yakuza experience while English voice subtitles match the English script.
- Localization Pedigree: Judgment’s localization has been handled in-house by SEGA of America’s talented Yakuza series localization team.
