UPDATE: Our Lost Judgment review is live:
ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES: Lost Judgment is the sequel to 2018’s Yakuza spin-off Judgment. It was officially revealed via a video presentation in May, and will be released worldwide on September 24 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
“I’m confident we’ve created a game unlike anything you’ve seen before,” recently appointed Sega creative director and Yakuza creator Toshihiro Nagoshi said during the presentation.
The “legal suspense action game” will retain the fast-paced action of the original, rather than adopting the turn-based RPG system used in 2020’s Yakuza: Like a Dragon.
In addition to Kamurocho, the game will take players to the port city of Yokohama, and returning protagonist Takayuki Yagami will go undercover at a high school.
However, according to reports last month, it may be the final game in the Judgment series due to ongoing issues with Sega and actor Takuya Kimura’s talent agency.
