Lost Judgment plot has cases related to Bullying and Sexual Assault
In the next month of September 2021, the open-world action game Lost Judgment will be the latest title from the game director Toshihiro Nagoshi and Yakuza creators that will be released. According to a current preview of the game, Famitsu magazine published a little story of the sequel and confirmed that the plot of Lost Judgment will not shy away from serious topics.
The main protagonist of the game, Takayuki Yagami, according to the preview, will investigate a case of sexual assault in Lost Judgment after a murder case in the original game. After progressing in the story further, however, things quickly get out of hand after the very first sexual assault case.
All of a sudden, the criminal is also suspected of murder. So, it is up to the protagonist of the game to investigate how the suspect could commit two serious crimes at the same time.
Check the complete overview of the game 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?
From just a single stumble, one can become a monster…
Recall that Lost Judgment will be released on September 21, 2021, for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
