During a “Judgment Day” livestream event, the Yakuza team at SEGA revealed the next game in the Judgment series. Lost Judgment again features protagonist Takayuki Yagami, a former defense attorney turned detective. Yagami and his allies discover a new murder mystery, taking them back to Kamurocho in Tokyo as well as the sprawling port city of Yokohama, the main explorable location from Yakuza: Like a Dragon. Featuring a thrilling story, additional stealth elements for investigating crimes, and a brand new Snake combat style, Lost Judgment builds upon the Yakuza mainstays of exciting crime drama with beat ’em up action.

Lost Judgment follows Yagami after the events of the first game, where he now finds himself in the midst of another challenging case in court. His investigation as a detective takes him undercover at a local high school in Yokohama. Yagami gets to know the students during his investigation, with optional “School Stories” as side missions. Outside the school, Yagami explores Kamurocho and Yokohama, both filled with plenty of attractions during the day, as well as underground dangers with deadly gangs. Yagami and his allies are in for another roller coaster of emotions, action-packed fights, and gripping court battles while solving this latest murder mystery.

Lost Judgment releases worldwide on September 24 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. SEGA have commented that they don’t have plans to release Lost Judgment on PC at the moment. Given that we’ve seen numerous mainline Yakuza entries on Steam, it’s possible we will receive a PC port sometime in the future. In the meantime, check out of review of Judgment if you haven’t already.
