It was revealed in June that the sequel to Judgment will include a playable Master System in protagonist Takayuki Yagami’s office, which replaces the pinball machine from the previous game.
The game’s developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio has now listed all eight playable games via its official Twitter account.
The eight games are:
- Alex Kidd in Miracle World (iconic platformer)
- Fantasy Zone (side-scrolling shoot ’em up)
- Penguin Land (platform puzzler)
- Quartet (run-and-gun game with a jetpack)
- Enduro Racer (isometric motorbike racing game)
- Woody Pop (Breakout style ball and bricks game)
- Maze Hunter 3-D (top-down maze game)
- Secret Command (re-release of Rambo: First Blood Part II without the licence)
In the original Judgment, Yagami had a pinball machine in his office. This was then replaced with an OutRun arcade machine in the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S upgrade Judgment Remastered earlier this year. The Master System now replaces this.
Previous games in the Yakuza series have let players discover and play classic Sega arcade games. The likes of Space Harrier, Fantasy Zone, Virtua Fighter 2, Super Hang-On and Puyo-Puyo have been playable in the past. This is the first time a home console has been featured, however.
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.
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.
