Sequel to the 2018/2019 PS4-exclusive (Later multiplatform) Yakuza-spinoff action adventure game Judgment, SEGA and Studio Ryu Ga Gotoku have rolled out Lost Judgment onto store shelves worldwide. The game is now available both physically and digitally on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S – with the PS4/X1 versions featuring a free digital upgrade path for their new-generation successor.
Following on from the events of Judgment, Lost Judgment seeks to weave “elements of detective sleuthing, dark narrative and visceral action combat, slipping players into the sneakers of Takayuki Yagami, a private eye who defends those that the law fails to protect”.
Promoted features of Lost Judgment include:
Tap into Yagami’s arsenal of private eye tricks to gather clues from hi-tech gadgets including drones and social media listening devices to hardboiled gumshoe methods like scaling buildings and tracking suspects in the city.
Master Yagami’s three unique, combo-heavy martial arts styles to overcome any situation from group ambushes to single-target takedowns. Further customize each style with a skill tree and weaponize street fights with traffic cones, street signs, bicycles and beyond.
Go undercover at a local high school as a club advisor to get to the root of a mysterious rise in delinquency as it relates to the case. Join the Dance Club, where you’ll be grooving to the rhythm; the Robotics Club, tasking your ingenuity to build the ultimate Yagami-bot; a boxing gym, to stick and move against fierce opponents; and a bike gang, where underground racing is the only way to earn respect.
Hit The Streets
As you comb the open cities of Kamurocho and Ijincho in pursuit of the case, take a break and get to know the unique culture of each through bars and other nightlife hotspots. It may be worth taking on a Side Case to lend your detective skills to residents in need – you never know who holds what cards.
