Today Sega released new screenshots and details of its upcoming Judgment sequel Lost Judgment.
We learn that during the “Youth Drama” part of the game, protagonist Takayuki Yagami is looking for a pretext to investigate reports of bullying at Seiryo High School, which is at the foundation of the current case.
He learns from a student named Kyoko Amasawa that her Mystery Research Club is about to be closed because its advisor left and takes advantage of a school rule that allows even outsiders to apply as club advisors.
After being tested by Amasawa herself, he becomes the club’s advisor and hears about an urban legend told among the students about “The Professor,” a mysterious man who runs a shady website where students can post their wishes and have them granted, leading them to become delinquents.
To uncover the truth, Yagami will try to infiltrate various communities within the school that are rumored to include delinquents under the spell of “The Professor.”
The Mystery Research Club is dedicated to reading and critiquing mystery novels from all over the world. Its founder, Kyoko Amasawa, is driven by her extreme curiosity for mystery that leads her to go beyond reading, She often investigates incidents within and beyond the school’s borders disregarding possible dangers and often getting in trouble with the teachers. Of course, her encounter with Yagami, a real detective, adds fuel to the fire of her curiosity.
Yagami will then meet the dance club, called “Seiryo Rabbits.” He will impress their leader Sayaka Nishizono thanks to his dance skills and will take on the role of advisor of this club as well.
While playing in the dance club, you’ll be prompted to enjoy a rhythm minigame in which you have to press the correct button at the right time. You can also use special choreography that will increase your quality gauge (which normally grows by getting button presses right) and make the timing easier to match.
Next is the robotics club. Initially, Yagami is not welcome, but he is then asked to replace a member in operating a robot for a competition. He will then proceed to unite the members of the club who lack teamwork, while investigating a case that involves snatching by robots.
You’ll be able to customize your robot and enjoy a minigame that is based on capturing squares on the battlefield.
