Fans of Yakuza games on PC rejoice as spin-off series Judgment and Lost Judgment come to Steam. Yakuza developer Ryū Ga Gotoku Studio unveiled the surprise release today as part of its RGG Summit, part of the wider Tokyo Game Show.

Ryū ga Gotoku games are known for their gritty but sometimes light-hearted action-adventure games that go beyond the norms of the genre. Industry leaders in action game excellence, it’s great news that we can now experience Judgment and Lost Judgment on PC.

And with the release of the Judgment games, it looks like there’s hope for some of the latest Yakuza spin-offs to make their way west and to the PC as well. Ryū ga Gotoku Ishin! is a game set in Japan’s turbulent Bakumatsu period, and a popular title in the West.
