latest project by the development team behind the Yakuza series is
a game called Project Judge. Ryo ga Gotoku Studios have become
well-known for packing tons of Sega fan-service into their games. Past Yakuza
titles have featured a variety of playable Sega arcade classics within
them, including Virtua Fighter 5 in Yakuza 6. A
"spin-off" of the Yakuza series, Project Judge
will include a playable classic 3D fighting game considered to be a spin-off of the
Virtua Fighter series... 1995's Fighting Vipers.
This will be the first
time Fighting Vipers is playable on PlayStation 4. In 2012, Fighting
Vipers was re-released with a 1080p HD upgrade on PS3
and Xbox 360 (video from that version seen above). Currently, no details
about the PS4 version within Project Judge, but speculating from
titles, it will be a straight-forward arcade port. Below are the latest story and
gameplay trailers for Project Judge.
is set to release on PlayStation 4 in Japan on December 13th, 2018,
followed by a Western release sometime in 2019.
