Lost Judgment is out this week (September 24) and like previous games in the Yakuza franchise, players can take a break from investigations and indulge in some vintage games.
“The Club Sega arcade naturally has many games to offer, including a couple of new titles,” says the blog entry.
“However, this time Lost Judgment‘s hard-boiled protagonist Yagami can also play Master System games in his office, and even switch between western and Japanese versions of these 8-bit wonders.”
Sonic The Fighters will be joining the arcade game line-up in @RGGStudio’s Lost Judgment!

The list of games ranges from Space Harrier, the arcade shooter that put Sega on the map when it was released in 1985, through to 2010’s Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown.
There is also a specially created game for Lost Judgment. Called HAMA of the Dead, it’s a new take on KAMURO of the DEAD from the original Judgment. It’ll be perfect for fans of The House of The Dead and zombie fans in general, apparently.

NME‘s review of Lost Judgment called it “a dashing detective game that improves on the original.”
“There’s some tricky content in here but it makes for a thrilling tale that you won’t want to put down. Tragedy and comedy are always holding hands here. Much like Judgment, the sequel’s main case is well thought out and full of thorny twists and moments that make your mind wander.”
