Last night, Sega officially announced Lost Judgement, a sequel to the Yakuza spin-off. Excitingly, the developers are aiming for a worldwide release this time around, rather than releasing in Japan first with western countries getting the game months later.
Judgement is a Yakuza spin-off following Takayuki Yagami, a former lawyer turned private detective. In Lost Judgement, we continue Yagami’s story, uncovering details behind a gruesome murder.
Speaking on the sequel, Lost Judgement director, Toshihiro Nagoshi, revealed that the new game will feature two main locations, Kamurocho, which we all know from the original game and the Yakuza series, as well as Yokohama, which is described as a living city that changes from day to night. A portion of the game will see Yagami going undercover at a high school in Yokohama.
The combat system has been expanded with new fighting styles and investigations have also been improved with new stealth and manoeuvre options, such as climbing up buildings.
Lost Judgement will be releasing on the 24th of September for PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X. Unfortunately, no announcements have been made for PC.
KitGuru Says: Hopefully this sequel lives up to the original game. Did many of you play Judgement when it first came out? Are you looking forward to the sequel?
