Following up on behinds the scenes videos with actors Ken Mitisuishi and Hiroshi Tamaki, Sega has a new video for Lost Judgment that focuses on Takuya Kimura. As the voice actor (who also provides his likeness) for Takayuki Yagami, Kimura discusses his role in the new title along with director Toshihiro Nagoshi. Chief producer Kazuki Hosokawa also shows up to discuss various gameplay aspects.
Along with discussing the new school setting, where Yagami goes undercover, Lost Judgment deals with themes like bullying. Despite its serious tones, there are still plenty of different fun activities for him to engage with (including a Sega Master System which you can find games for). Skateboarding is one and it’s possible to pull off some sick tricks and grinds. Combat is as important as ever though and another look at the new Snake style is seen.
Though it’s more defensive, allowing players to unleash deadly counterattacks on foes, there does seem to be some timing involved. Nevertheless, combat looks as fast and fluid as ever. The title’s recreation of Isezakichō in Yokohama (known as Isezaki Ijincho in-game) also looks fantastic and should make for a fun environment to explore.
Lost Judgment releases on September 24th for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4 and PS5. It may be the last title in the series due to a rumored disagreement between Sega and Johnny and Associates, the talent agency that manages Takuya Kimura. Stay tuned for any details and updates in the coming days.
