Judgment Side Case Guide

Judgment Side Case Guide
Aside from main story missions and mini-games, Judgment has a ton of other side content including Cases. This Judgment Side Case Guide will list all of the different Side Cases we’ve discovered in the game including information on where they start and any rewards you receive.

Side Cases are optional missions that you can complete for extra insight into the world, more friend opportunities and some great rewards. It’s also a really good source of Yen, if you find yourself running out. Most of the Side Cases are optional, bar a few, and can be found after reaching certain parts of the story and in some cases, reaching a certain level of City Reputation.

There are four main methods of discovering Side Cases. You will find them at Yagami’s Detective Agency, the Genda Law Office, and Bar Tender. Finally, some of the Side Cases are scattered throughout the city itself.
