The “Yakuza” Spinoff “Lost Judgment” Announced
SEGA and Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio announced Lost Judgment, a sequel to the critically acclaimed Judgment.
From the studio that brought you the Yakuza series, Lost Judgment weaves elements of detective sleuthing, noir narrative and action combat into one mystery thriller starring private eye Takayuki Yagami who defends those the law fails to protect.
The feature list is impressive as well with:
- Law and Disorder - Lost Judgment once again puts players in the sneakers of a lawyer turned street-fighting detective Takayuki Yagami. Joined by his partner, ex-yakuza Masaharu Kaito, the crime-fighting duo is called on to investigate a seemingly perfect crime whose lead suspect has an airtight alibi. What starts out as a tale of revenge reveals a tangled web of conspiracy involving several unlikely factions taking advantage of a broken law system. But as victims pile up and Yagami unravels the truth, he must choose between defending the law or exacting justice.
- Freeform Combat - Yagami’s mastery of martial arts allows him to stylishly overcome any situation from group ambushes to single-target takedowns. Harness Crane, Tiger, and the new Snake style, a graceful style that can deflect and return an opponent's strikes, using their energy against them.
- Investigative Action - Yagami’s arsenal of detective tricks grows with new gadgets, stealthily tracking suspects, and crafty methods of infiltration. Leave no stone unturned in pursuit of the truth.
- No Place Finer – Immerse yourself in the bustling downtowns of Tokyo and Yokohama at your own pace within an authentic setting that only the RGG Studio can deliver. Game at Club SEGA, find your next favourite hangout, take on cases from locals need, and beyond.
Lost Judgment launches worldwide on 24th September 2021 for next-gen platforms PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S as well as PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Physical pre-orders will be available at Australian retailers.
