Hey guys! Kaydie from Sega here reminding you that Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio’s mystery thriller, Judgment remastered, hits the PlayStation 5 this Friday, April 23. From the creators of Yakuza, Judgment is a free-roam action brawler that puts you in the shoes of Takayuki Yagami, a street-fighting private eye that defends those that the law fails to protect.

If you’re coming from Yakuza: Like a Dragon and want more hard-boiled drama full of intrigue and larger-than-life characters packed into a single experience that only Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio can deliver – sleuth no further. Here’s why you’re bound to dig Judgment if you loved Yakuza: Like a Dragon.

Judgment is a cinematic crime drama

You’ve seen through the eyes of Ichiban Kasuga how his former clan, the Tojo Clan, runs Kamurocho. Law enforcement turns a blind eye to corruption out of fear or a wad of cash in the pocket. In comes Detective Yagami. Caught up in solving a serial murder case with evidence against a Tojo Clan branch family stacking up, Yagami must hunt down the truth while the forces of Kamurocho try to cover it up – otherwise, no one else will.

Camaraderie between eccentric characters

…But he can’t do it alone. If character interactions that oscillate between absurd and sincere in Yakuza gripped you by the heart, you’ll appreciate the brotherhood Yagami forms with those he meets through the investigation. Yagami is capable but still depends on those around him, especially Kaito, his best friend and “brawn” half of the Yagami Detective Agency, when it feels like the entire town is out to get them.

Freestyle city exploration

Like in Yakuza, every inch of Kamurocho’s neon-lit streets is yours to roam. Yagami has his own tastes, so there are plenty of restaurants, activities and even games in Club Sega to check out that Ichiban and company didn’t see. (Hot tip: L’Amant has free drinks!) Don’t forget to make the rounds at your Yakuza favorites like Smile Burger and Gindaco for old time’s sake.

How “Featuring Dante” happened in Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster

The remaster of the Atlus classic is essentially two games in one – The first version of the game released in 2003 for Japan only brought in Raidou Kuzunoha from Atlus’s Devil Summoner series. Then a second version, the only version released for the West, known as Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne (or Lucifer’s Call for the European folks) featured Capcom’s Dante from the Devil May Cry series. For the release of the Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster, Raidou is included in the base game and Dante can join the party as DLC!

From HD character models to in-game backgrounds, we’ve remastered everything—even the iconic  meme. For the first time ever, here’s the “Featuring Dante from the Devil May Cry series” sticker in HD.

Download the #FeaturingDante image above (or from here), and feel free to paste it on anything – even your very own copy of Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster for the PS4! The Featuring Dante sticker lets people know whatever you slap it on… truly has it all.

*Disclaimer: Artists’ rendering only, does not represent the final packaged product.

The Atlus and Capcom collaboration of the unique meme comes from a simple idea: “Dante is a ‘Devil Hunter’” and Demi-fiend is “part human, part demon.” It just made sense.

Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster Director Kazuyuki Yamai looks back on the original release and recalls, “The dev team initially thought it was a crazy idea to pursue a crossover across two different publishers. However, they were also captivated by the idea of the two characters’ encountering one another and their ensuing battle. So they brought the proposal to Capcom, and the rest is history!”
