Pre-orders for ‘Lost Judgment’ Are Now Open; New Trailer & Cinematic Intro Released

SEGA‘s upcoming action detective thriller Lost Judgment has had quite the busy week. They’ve released two trailers, including the intro cinematic and theme song, and they’ve opened pre-orders. We recap everything released and all the versions players can pre-order now.

After the week SEGA and Ryu Ga Gotoku have had, they absolutely deserve to kick their feet up this weekend. With two months until their highly-anticipated detective sequel Lost Judgment launches, the publisher and studio released quite a bit of new footage and players finally got the opportunity to pre-order the game. In essence, Yakuza/Judgment fans have been eating good this week.

Intro Cinematic/Theme Song

Earlier in the week, SEGA unveiled the intro cinematic, featuring the theme song, for Lost Judgment. The intro cinematic merely shows all of the characters giving their best “Blue Steel” to the epic theme song “蝸旋 (Rasen)” by jon-YAKITORY feat. Ado.

Investigative Action

Sony’s State of Play brought a lot of new and amazing trailers for PlayStation players to get excited about. One of those trailers was for Lost Judgment. Unlike the intro cinematic one, it showed lots of new gameplay, including a Shiba Inu companion.
