Lost Judgment

Lost Judgment continues the story of Takayuki Yagami.

Overview

A sequel to the Yakuza spinoff Judgment, made by RGG Studio and with Japanese actor Takuya Kimura once again providing his voice and likeness to the main character, Takayuki Yagami.

Plot

Set in December 2021, after the events of the last game (and Yakuza: Like A Dragon), Takayuki Yagami continues his work as a private detective and outside investigator for the Genda Law Office where he used to work. While assisting his friends Makoto Tsukumo and Fumiya Sugiura in opening up their own branch of the private detective agency in Yokohama, Yagami uses his skills to help the private Seiryu High School deal with a bullying crisis.

However, the case takes a strange turn when Genda's latest client, a policeman on trial for sexual battery, mentions that a teacher was killed in revenge for bullying his son into suicide. Now Yagami must get to the bottom of the mysteries surrounding Seiryu, the murder of a student-teacher for bullying, and how the policeman is involved.

  • Bosses no longer can deal critical hits that break Yagami's max health.
  • Some boss special attacks can be dodged and countered with good timing.

  • Yagami can complete minigames at the school as an advisor for the Mystery Research Club, including a dance contest.
  • Yagami can travel quickly along roads by riding a skateboard, and collect special medals that can only be collected while riding the board.
