Lost Judgment takes you to the streets of Yokohama to solve the toughest case yet

A case may be closed, but if the Yakuza series has taught us anything, it’s that there’s always something new on the crime-ridden streets of Kamurocho. In the series spin-off Judgment and its upcoming sequel, Lost Judgment, that meant a new main character, replacing former yakuza and heart-of-gold Kazuma Kiryu with the defense attorney’s private eye in disgrace Takayuki Yagami (his partner was a different character). ex-yakuza with a heart of gold, Masaharu Kaito).

While previous games have been set in the congested streets of Kamurocho, the heart of nearly all of Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio’s crime thrillers, this time the action takes place across the Yokohama Bay. You can travel between the two areas, but the gruesome new crime scene is there. This is also where Yakuza: Like A Dragon, another reimagining of the Yakuza format, takes place. However, as years of visiting Kamurocho have taught us, the developers are adept at redesigning previous maps to improve them over time, keeping them interesting while taking advantage of the knowledge streak veterans have picked up over the years. over time.

Does it seem heavy to you? It will certainly happen sometimes. Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio regularly writes scripts to tell compelling, legitimate tales that can be a tense and emotional roller coaster among seasoned Japanese writers, ensuring their games offer some of the most mature storytelling in any video game.

Yet Yagami is also the kind of guy who hops on a skateboard, puts on funny costumes, and this time even sneaks into a school in Yokohama. There, she competes in mini-games like dancing and robotics to complete School Story sub-quests. It helps a variety of students with their problems, no doubt helping them get to know each other while learning from children. It’s gonna be ridiculously ridiculous, like a bit of “School Of Rock Meets The Raid” and other non-school subtasks. As usual, the developers manage to balance the main plot’s legal thriller with some of the game’s funniest side events.

Ever the detective, Yagami must use his special sight skills to complete missions inside and outside of the master plan. These were fun in the first game, but were somewhat limited and often contained a heavy dose of tails. These evolved to be more engaging in Lost Judgment (but the tail can return), giving Yagami room to distract enemies (but no silver gunners – Yagami prefers to get up close and personal), more gadgets and parkour movements Provided new tools, including As hanging on the ledges of buildings to keep it out of sight while weaving through the streets.

It’s not just the story of challenging the justice system that’s gaining momentum. Lost Judgment will also mark the first time that Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio has released a game on PS4 and PS5 simultaneously, meaning it will take more advantage of new hardware. If the PS5 version of Judgment is anything to consider, the addition of 60fps will be particularly effective for fast-paced street fights. It’s also the first time a Yakuza-related game has had a global launch date – we often had to wait around a year after the game was released in Japan to at least play it in the West. With an excellent English dub, Yagami takes the world by storm.

Lost Judgment takes you to the streets of Yokohama to solve the toughest case yet

One case might have been closed, but if the Yakuza series has taught us anything it’s that on the crime-laden streets of Kamurocho there’s always some new villainy afoot. In series spin-off Judgment and its upcoming sequel, Lost Judgment, that meant a new lead character, swapping ex-yakuza with a heart of gold Kazuma Kiryu for disgraced defence attorney turned private eye Takayuki Yagami (whose partner just happens to be a different ex-yakuza with a heart of gold, Masaharu Kaito). 
While the previous games were set in the well-trodden streets of Kamurocho, the heart of almost all Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio’s crime thrillers, this time the action’s happening across the bay in Yokohama. You’re able to travel between both districts, but the site of the grisly new crime is there. It’s also the location that was the setting for Yakuza: Like A Dragon, another reimagining of the Yakuza format. But, as years visiting Kamurocho have taught us, the devs are skilled at repurposing previous maps to evolve them over time, keeping them interesting while also taking advantage of the familiarity series veterans build up over time.

Sounds heavy? At times it’s sure to be. Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio regularly drafts in seasoned Japanese crime writers to tell compelling, legitimate narratives that can be tense and emotional rollercoaster rides, ensuring its titles offer some of the most mature storytelling of any video games around. 
And yet Yagami is also the kind of guy who does flips on a skateboard, dresses up in comical disguises, and this time around even infiltrates a school in Yokohama. There he takes part in minigames such as dancing and robotics in order to complete School Story sub-quests. He assists a variety of students with their problems, undoubtedly helping them learn something about themselves while also learning from the kids. It’s a little ‘School Of Rock meets The Raid’, and it’s bound to be laugh-out-loud hilarious, as will the other, non-school-related sub-quests. As usual, the devs manage to balance the whiteknuckle legal thriller of the main plot with some of the funniest side activities in gaming. 
Ever the detective, Yagami needs to use his private eye skills to complete missions, both within and outside the main plot. These were fun in the first game, but somewhat limited, often involving a hefty dose of tailing. These have evolved in Lost Judgment to be more engaging (though tailing does return), giving Yagami some new tools, including a coin to distract enemies (but no silverballers – Yagami prefers to get up close and personal), more gadgets, and parkour moves, like hanging off ledges on buildings, to enable him to stay out of sight when stealthing through the streets. 
It’s not just the story of challenging the legal system that’s going big. Lost Judgment will also mark the first time Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio releases a game on PS4 and PS5 simultaneously, meaning it will benefit more fully from the new hardware. If the PS5 version of Judgment is anything to go by, the addition of 60fps will be especially effective for the fast-paced street brawling. It’s also the first time any game related to Yakuza has had a global launch date – usually we’ve had to wait a year or so after the game’s launched in Japan to play it in the West, at the very least. With a great English-language dub in tow, Yagami is taking the world by storm.
