News from IGN Japan’s Tokyo Game Show livestream further complicates the questions of whether Project Judge is a Yakuza game or not: While both titles are set within a shared universe, the new game will not feature any characters from Yakuza.
The newest game by SEGA’s Yakuza team was announced earlier this month as a “completely different” experience, yet is based partly on the Yakuza engine. And while it is set in Kamurocho, the fictional Tokyo district from the Yakuza games, studio head and project lead Toshihiro Nagoshi told us that we will not be encountering any familiar faces as we explore the neon-lit streets as new protagonist Takayuki Yagami.
