Mysterious 'countdown' site appears as Judgment launches on PS5, Xbox Series X, and Stadia


Judgment Day is Coming

It's a one-two blow of news from Team Yakuza's violent detective thriller Judgment, which launches today on PS5, Xbox Series X, and Stadia. In fitting with the occasion, Sega has opened a mysterious website, which is counting down the hours to a forthcoming announcement.

The simple site, which features support for multiple languages, features a single fish-eyed image of the fictional district of Kamurocho, which plays host to both Judgment and the legendary Yakuza franchise. A foreboding clock counts down to "Judgment Day," which will apparently take place on May 7, 2021. Looks like Sarah Connor was wrong all along.

Originally released on PS4 back in 2018, Judgment is a spin-off set within the Yakuza universe, and tells the tale of detective Takayuki Yagami, as he tracks down a serial killer running rampant among the neon-lit streets of Kamurocho. While Judgment does feature elements of investigation, evidence-collection, disguise, and interrogation, it is also packed out with blood-spurting, skull-cracking, arm-snapping mayhem, as one would expect from the fisticuff-lovin' folks over at Team Yakuza.

Judgment is available now on PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, and Stadia. You can check out Chris Carter's review of the PS4 edition right here. We will, of course, keep you informed of any new news and information once "Judgment Day" finally arrives.
