Lost Judgment, the sequel to 2018's Yakuza spin-off Judgment, has just been announced at the "Judgment Day" livestream event for a release later this year. The game focuses on lawyer and detective Takayuki Yagami with his Yakuza partner Masaharu Kaito, who are both investigating an impossible crime where the prime suspect has an ironclad alibi.
The game has the same combat you would expect, but like the first game there's also an investigation aspect that has players sifting through mysteries and trying to discover the who, what, where, when, why, and how through facts and logic. Check out the overlong trailer below for some more information:
Lost Judgment is unlike the first game where it's going to have a simultaneous worldwide launch, a first for the studio. It will also be outputting in 4k 60 FPS for the lucky gamers that have PS5 or an Xbox Series X|S, which makes sense considering how Judgment recently received a next-gen release.
If you're a pre-orderer, you might want to consider a Steelbook that will be available as a "Best Buy Exclusive". There's not much else to tell, as it gives out an unclickable "Coming Soon" option that's greyed out. You can check out the website here to see the aforementioned trailer, some screenshots, and the Steelcase that you'll be able to buy from Best Buy.
Lost Judgment, the sequel to 2018's Judgment, releases worldwide on September 24, 2021 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One.
