Today Sega released another gallery of screenshots and details about the upcoming action game Lost Judgment, the sequel of the popular Yakuza spin-off Judgment.
First of all, we take a look at the EX Boost status, which makes you impossible to knock down and enables special attacks. It’s useful against large groups of enemies or bosses.
For instance, in the new Snake style throwing techniques will be more powerful and continuous attacks will be enabled, letting you throw enemies one after the other also involving more of them in each throw.
Your EX gauge can also be spent by performing EX Actions. There are several of them and depend on the style you’re using, but they’re quite devastating.
Another interesting element is the “afraid state” for enemies, which triggers certain conditions. For instance, underlings may be scared if you hit their boss first, or when you disarm them in the Snake style.
When they’re afraid, the Snake style has a special attack that will stop just short of hitting the enemy’s face and will cause them to faint out of terror.
Last, but not least, we take a look at the EX Pet Dog Helper. Under certain conditions, your good boi will intervene in the battle and dispatch the enemy for you.
