The working title of the officially unannounced show is Sabakarezaru (The Unjudged in English). For comparison, Lost Judgment’s Japanese subtitle is Sabakarezaru Kioku, which means unjudged memory.
According to unconfirmed information, the main role in the forthcoming film adaptation will be played by the Judgment star – Japanese actor and singer Takuya Kimura, who gave the voice and appearance to the main character of the games in the series.
According to another source, Nikkan Gendai, a feature film is also planned alongside the Judgment-based series. Also apparently with the participation of Kimura.
It was previously reported that Sega is preparing to end its partnership with Kimura’s talent agency, Johnny & Associates. This in turn could jeopardize the entire Judgment series.
Recall that the games of the Judgment series are offshoots of the criminal franchise Yakuza and tell about the adventures of the private detective Takayuki Yagami, who was a promising lawyer in the past.
Judgment debuted on PS4 (Japanese release) in December 2018 and subsequently found its way to PS5, Xbox Series X and S, and Google Stadia. Lost Judgment was released in September 2021 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S.
