Judgment Sequel, Lost Judgment, Seemingly Leaks On PSN
A new game, Lost Judgment, has leaked on PSN. It looks like it is a sequel to 2019's Judgment.
Update: Lost Judgment has been officially announced. The game releases this September and represents a shift for the larger Yakuza series, as the main games will keep using turn-based RPG combat.
Original story follows...
It looks like a new game in the universe of the Yakuza spin-off, Judgment, has leaked on the Japanese PlayStation Network under the name Lost Judgment. It's most likely a direct sequel to the 2019 game, but we'll know for sure tomorrow as Ryu Ga Gotoku studio previously teased Judgment Day for May 7 at 7 AM PT. There have also been clips released from the new project as well.
According to the leaked PSN listing, Lost Judgment will release on September 21 in Japan for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, and will also have a Standard Edition and a Digital Deluxe Edition. There also might be a localization announcement tomorrow during Judgment Day as well. Judgment was called Judge Eyes in Japan, so it could be possible that Lost Judgment might receive a localized name if and when it launches in the West.
Fans have already figured out that Lost Judgment will take place in Yokohama, based off already released screenshots and footage. Interestingly, Yokohama is also the same setting that Yakuza: Like a Dragon primarily takes place in, so a cool crossover with protagonist Ichiban Kasuga could occur.
