Sequel to the 2018 title Judgment, in Lost Judgment you play as private detective Takayuki Yagami. In Lost Judgment Yagami has been hired to investigate a criminal accused of murder and sexual harrasment.
This spin-off of the Yakuza franchise retains the gameplay and combat of the original Judgement game, but will revise stealth elements as Yagami investigates.
It's not all business in Lost Judgment though, much like mainline Yakuza games there will be all kinds of side quests and mini-games to take part in when murder gets a bit too serious.
“Three days ago, a dead body was found in an abandoned building in Yokohama. Have you identified it yet?” he proclaims as confusion cuts through the court room.
His defense lawyer, Saori Shirosaki, has no doubt that crucial details of the situation have been overlooked, as Ehara was not even tried for the murder. She contacts detective Takayuki Yagami to investigate this further.
How could Ehara have committed two crimes at once? Was the sexual battery just a cover up? Has Ehara gamed the entire justice system? As victims surface and Yagami digs farther into the truth, he is faced with a question: Defend the law, or enact justice?
From just a single stumble, one can become a monster...
