Though it was leaked through the PlayStation Store beforehand, Ryu ga Gotoku properly unveiled Lost Judgment in its recent “Judgment Day” stream. The sequel is slated to release on September 24th worldwide as the studio’s first global launch and sees the return of Takayuki Yagami (voiced by Takuya Kimura). This time around, the story is based on a mystery stemming from a guilty verdict handed down by the court.
It’s not revealed how but Yagami ends up going undercover in a high school, interacting with its various students and engaging in new School Stories. About 1000 minutes of voice dialogue is included in the game along with new rhythm mini-games and activities. On top of exploring Kamurocho, players will also venture to and explore Yokohama.
The Crane and Tiger combat styles return while a new style, Snake, is also being added. This puts more emphasis on counter-attacks, as players turn foes’ attacks against them. Investigations are also being revamped with disguises and new sequences that showcase Yagami’s athleticism and stealth. Lost Judgment will be available for PS4, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S when it launches in September so stay tuned for more details.
