Judgment releasing for PS5, Xbox Series and Stadia in April, but not PC

Sega has announced that Yakuza spin-off Judgment will be coming to current gen consoles and Stadia on April 23.

A new trailer goes over what you should expect from the upcoming PS5, Xbox Series, and Stadia versions of the game. There’s the usual framerate and resolution increases, now at 4k30 compared to the PS4 original’s max of 1080p30, and the inclusion of all paid DLC.

However, there are more than a few unfortunate aspects to this announcement. For starters, Judgment isn’t coming to PC alongside these other versions, even though it’ll be releasing on Stadia — possibly an exclusivity deal with Google, or the fact that Yakuza 6 for PC is currently in development, but still unfortunate.

Second, Sega confirmed to RPG Site that there’ll be no upgrade to PS5 for last-gen owners, paid or otherwise.

The previous point wouldn’t be so bad, if it wasn’t for how the game is priced. While Judgment will cost $39.99 in North America (no confirmed UK/EU price yet, but it’ll probably be something similar), the Japanese trailer instead lists a price of 1,980 yen. That’s less than half the cost of the NA version, and seems more reasonable in comparison.
