Project Judge is the latest game from the team behind Yakuza – but it’s got more in common with that series than you’d think.

It’s so similar, in fact, that we feel pretty confident in suggesting that Project Judge, also known as Judge Eyes, might well be set in the same universe as and tie in to Yakuza. One of the most significant differences is a narrative one, in fact: in Project Judge, you don’t play as a criminal. Quite the opposite in fact – protagonist Takayuki Yagami is a judge, thus the game’s title – but after a personal tragedy, he turns detective.

The lineage back to Yakuza is clear in many aspects of the game: its look is straight from those games and clearly running on the same ‘Dragon Engine’ tech, and the slick, gorgeous portrayal of Japan’s cities is quite familiar. There’s combat that features similar combo systems, though there’s a fluidity and rhythm to the action that sets it apart from Yakuza.
