Is Lost Judgment coming to PlayStation Now?

Spearheaded by the efforts of developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio and publisher Sega, Lost Judgment is a single-player, action-adventure brawler game that follows the events of the 2018 Yakuza series detective thriller spinoff, Judgment. Here's the breakdown of whether or not Lost Judgment will be coming to PlayStation Now.

Is Lost Judgment Coming to PlayStation Now?

Although Lost Judgment will be releasing on PlayStation consoles, it does not appear that there are any plans for the action brawler to be offered on PlayStation Now.

During PlayStation's State of Play livestream Thursday, Sega and Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio showed a new trailer announcing that the upcoming action-adventure game is now available for preorder, and revealing when fans can expect to boot up the title for the first time.

Lost Judgment is set to release on Sept. 24, 2021 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One.

Although the first Judgment title didn't do so, that there will be a free upgrade path for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners to their respective next-gen versions of Lost Judgment.

Lawyer turned street-fighting private detective Takayuku Yagami is back to give players the opportunity to explore the Japanese cities of Kamurocho and Isezaki Ijincho, and "seize the truth" for Akihiro Ehara, who stands accused of two crimes in the Tokyo district court.

As confirmed by Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio, Lost Judgment will represent their commitment to the action brawler genre, while their mainline games will remain turn-based RPGs going forward after the success of Yakuza: Like a Dragon.
