Sega announced that a Lost Judgment demo will appear through the PlayStation Store soon. Starting on September 10, 2021 PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 users will be able to download the Lost Judgment demo. However, Sega did not say if Xbox Series X and Xbox One users would receive this demo as well. [Thanks, Famitsu!]
As of now, the contents of the demo have not been revealed. However, previous demos for the Yakuza series included option to walk around a small section of a specific locale and try out more than a handful of mini-games. Additionally, these demos also contained some story elements. It is unclear if the demo will feature these elements, or allow for progress made within it to carry over into the full release of the game. As it stands, the demo has also only been announced for the Japanese PlayStation Store.
Lost Judgment will receive a plethora of post-release content in the form of DLC. This includes a unique scenario staring Kaito that will appear sometime in 2022. It was revealed that this scenario will be roughly ten hours long. Additionally, other DLC content includes the distribution of in-game items and additional content in the form of more Sega Master System games and girlfriends.
Lost Judgment will come to the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X on September 24, 2021. People who get the Digital Deluxe or Ultimate Edition can begin playing on September 21, 2021.
