Lost Judgment Officially Announced, Releases Worldwide September 24th

Yagami looking rough in Lost Judgment

The justice system is broken. However, Detective Yagami is back on the case to pursue the truth! Sega and Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio have officially announced Lost Judgment, a sequel to their 2019 court drama/beat-em-up hybrid Judgment.

Catch up on Yagami’s latest case in the trailer below! Beware, part of it is pretty gruesome.

When asked by IGN about the development of the Judgment series and its sibling series, Yakuza, going forward, series creator Toshihiro Nagoshi and producer Kazuki Hosokawa announced that the former would maintain the action game flavor, while the latter will continue to be a turn-based RPG series. After successfully turning Ryu ga Gotuku 7, or Yakuza: Like a Dragon, into a turn-based RPG, this decision makes sense!

Lost Judgment will be available as both a standard edition and a Best Buy exclusive Steelbook edition. Pre-orders aren’t available just yet, but keep an eye on the official website for your chance to jump on the opportunity!

Lost Judgment releases for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S worldwide on September 24th. You can check out what we thought of the original Judgment in our reviews of the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions. Stay tuned to RPGFan for all things Judgment and Yakuza!
