Lost Judgment Side Case Guide

Side Cases are hidden, optional objectives that you can complete for additional rewards. This Lost Judgment Side Case Guide will tell you where to find each of the Side Case’s we’ve discovered, what you need to do in order to complete them, and details on any investigating you need to do to collect keywords and other useful clues.

Side Cases in Judgment come in two main varieties. There is a Job Request Case List board at Yokohama 99. This lists Side Cases that you can pickup and complete at any time. Then there are also quests you can find when exploring the city, discovering new keywords, etc. We have divided these into the two different categories below. In case you are missing specific Side Cases, they are also numbered.

Lastly, a number of Side Cases are tied behind School Stories. As I’m not a huge fan of this part of the game, I left those until last, so those are all in Chapter 13, but are available sooner if you want to explore the School Stories.
