Sega Debuts Dark New Lost Judgment Trailer at Gamescom

The new Lost Judgment trailer shows there's more than singalongs and cute dogs in store for Yagami.

Sega debuted a new Lost Judgment trailer during Gamescom 2021, and it’s a doozy. We know Yagami gets up to all manner of shenanigans, from impersonating a student to fighting alongside a Shiba Inu, but this story trailer peers into Lost Judgment‘s darker side ahead of its September 24 release date on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.

It opens with a trial. A police officer facing judgment for groping women on a train platform surprises the magistrate with a little revelation. Soon, they’ll learn of a rotting corpse in a warehouse, he says, and that’s when hell breaks loose.

Yagami embarks on a journey into darkness and madness trying to uncover the truth.

His goal is protecting the innocent, but he doesn’t quite know what he’s getting into. The truth behind the murder involves a shady organization bent on scaring Yagami and his friends off, no matter the cost. And no one is above being tainted by the cruelty, not even Yagami himself.

Lost Judgment is a direct sequel to 2018’s Yakuza spinoff Judgment, recently remastered for next-gen consoles and losing none of its shine. It features the arcade-style brawling combat Yakuza was known for prior to Like A Dragon taking it in a different direction, and it sees Yagami exploring areas beyond Kamurocho, including Yokohama.
