Judgment may be a game from Ryu Ga Gotoku Studios, the creators of Yakuza, but it isn’t just about following a main character who beats people up as part of the way to resolve situations. Takayuki Yagami has some other abilities at his disposal while conducting his detective work, and the latest Judgment trailer shows off how useful a drone or a lockpick can be.
The Judgment trailer begins with Yagami using a rather familiar tool, talking with Kaitou via a Bluetooth headset. We then watch him follow a corrupt detective through the streets, avoiding being observed, then chasing him through the streets. We get to see Yagami get a picture of a suspect, investigate areas with the “Pigeon” drone, and use disguises to go undercover. There’s even an Ace Attorney-style “Objection!” in there at the 1:20 mark.
