Everything you need to know about Lost Judgment pre-orders

The July 8 State of Play confirmed that Lost Judgment is available for pre-order.

Lost Judgment

Lost Judgment, the sequel to 2018’s detective Yakuza spinoff, is coming soon.

The Judgment spinoff series will carry the torch introduced in the Yakuza games, keeping in line with the action brawler combat — while the mainline series will be turn-based going forward (as introduced in 2020’s Yakuza: Like a Dragon).

Sega showed off more Lost Judgment footage during a July 8 PlayStation State of Play presentation and opened pre-orders for the upcoming detective game ahead of its fall release.

During the showcase, several different versions of Lost Judgment were announced, including a Standard Edition, Digital Deluxe Edition, and Digital Ultimate Edition — all with fancy goodies to enhance your experience.
