Inga Yakuza-karaktärer är med i Judge Eyes

Judge Eyes kommer utspela sig i Yakuza-seriens fiktiva stadsdel Kamurocho, men Kiryu, Majima och de andra kommer inte att synas till i det nya spelet.

Det kommer enligt projektledaren Toshihiro Nagoshi utspelas i samma värld som Yakuza och man kommer höra talas om olika klaner, men karaktärerna från Yakuza-spelen dyker inte upp. Det är snarare tänk som att de också lever i staden, men att man aldrig träffar dem.

Spelet heter Judge Eyes i Japan, men det engelska arbetsnamnet är Project Judge, vilket Nagashi berättar om i en intervju med IGN .

"I wanted it to be a new game, so while the game is set in Kamurocho, no characters from Yakuza will appear in the game. It could draw people out of this new experience, so that's why I didn't want to include them".

"The story we want to tell with Project Judge is very different from the Yakuza series, so there isn't anything we can do with Yakuza characters within Project Judge. Even if we would make cameo appearances for them, we didn't feel we could do it in a way that would satisfy the fans, so that's why we decided not to include any of the Yakuza characters this time."
