May 7 is “Judgment Day,” and the countdown will end at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET.
But what will the news be? Some fans think it might simply be the announcement of a PC release, since Stadia seems to have timed exclusivity and it’s expected to come to Steam eventually. However, a countdown website available in multiple languages seems more fitting for bigger news than just a port.
Additionally, RGG Studio is currently holding a giveaway through Twitter. If you retweet their giveaway tweet, you’ll have a chance to win a $40 Amazon voucher. This giveaway will be repeated each day until May 7.
After you retweet it, you get a response telling you whether or not you won, with a video clip from Judgment that includes the scene number at the end. (Here is mine, for reference. I lost.) However, some of the responses include clips of new scenes, with the scene number censored at the end.
(All of the new scenes seem to be in response to winners of the giveaway.)
Clips that aren’t from the original Judgment, being shared each day leading up to the end of the Judgment Day countdown? This sounds like new content is coming, either an expansion or the Judgment sequel we’ve been hoping for.
Judgment is an absolutely fantastic game, and I’m thrilled at the thought that we might be getting a sequel. True, I was hoping the lack of games needing to be localized at the moment would increase our chances of getting Ishin and the other untranslated spin-offs, but I haven’t lost hope yet!
I was skeptical of the Judgment sequel rumors that came out earlier this year, but it really feels likely that this countdown is for Judgment 2. I’ll be there May 7, waiting to see what that video reveals!
What do you think the Judgment countdown is for? Are you looking forward to a potential Judgment sequel?---
