Publisher Sega has begun ramping up the marketing for their upcoming action title Lost Judgment, a sequel to the 2018 Yakuza spin-off, Judgment. The spin-off series mostly follows the same blueprints of Yakuza, albeit with added detective elements and a protagonist who operates (mostly) within the law. Judgment was a surprise hit for Sega, and it was inevitable that a sequel would move forward. We now have over an hour of new gameplay to digest.

Thanks to a recent session with Famitsu, the developers of Lost Judgment Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio offered three videos all totaling in over an hour of new gameplay. As a sequel, it mostly follows the same gameplay beats of its predecessor, though is seemingly switching things up with its story which has more personal stakes for its main character, Takayuki Yagami. Check out the gameplay below:
"December 2021, Tokyo district court. Akihiro Ehara stands accused of groping a woman on a crowded train. A bystander’s video footage of his attempt to flee the scene and subsequent apprehension is all over the news, and public outcry demands a maximum sentence.
'Three days ago, a dead body was found in an abandoned building in Yokohama. Have you identified it yet?' he proclaims as confusion cuts through the court room.
His defense lawyer, Saori Shirosaki, has no doubt that crucial details of the situation have been overlooked, as Ehara was not even tried for the murder. She contacts detective Takayuki Yagami to investigate this further.
How could Ehara have committed two crimes at once? Was the sexual battery just a cover up? Has Ehara gamed the entire justice system? As victims surface and Yagami digs farther into the truth, he is faced with a question: Defend the law, or enact justice?"
