Lost Judgment is an upcoming sequel to Judgment, a Yakuza series spinoff title released in Japan in 2018 and worldwide in 2019. The action adventure title developed by Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio and released by Sega combines fast-paced action with the deep and thrilling mystery of murder. The lost trial will continue in the same trend, but it tells an even darker story than its predecessor.
The story begins with a lawyer who reaches out to the protagonist, Detective Takayuki Yagami, to clear his name for a broken trial. His client and defendant have been charged with harassment on the train, but the trial turns to the worst when, through a guilty verdict in the current trial, he creates an iron alibi that gets rid of another murder that took place that night. Yagami’s job is to investigate Yokohama to get to the bottom of this case. But as he continues to search for the truth about what happened that night, he must choose between law or justice.
The Presentation of the current state Sony has revealed that the Lost Judgment will be released worldwide on September 24 for the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. Those who pre-order either Digital Premium Edition or Digital Ultimate Edition will receive early access to the game from September 21.
