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.

Listen to the two men speaking outside the school at this location. Open the Buzz Researcher and check the UFO keyword. Then head to the quest location to spot the UFO. Once you find the first UFO, another objective appears on Central ST. Go there, speak with the SRC, then follow the objective to the kitchen and head upstairs. Once you speak with the man use the keyword tool again to find the location of the UFO. When you get there, you will need to climb the small mound nearby so you are close enough to interact with it. Then you just need to take a picture. If you need more help, check out our The SRCs Hunt For The Truth Guide.
Head into the school and listen to the men talking, then offer to help. Head to the objective marker on the map and then use the investigation vision to inspect the trees. Then, in the distance, on the skyline, investigate the ferris wheel. Return the capsule to the men, explain it was taken by mistake, then speak with them again. Then leave the school and investigate the area where the new objective is, to the East, near Chinatown.
Lost Judgment Side Case Guide City – Chapter 4
A direct follow on from Extracting the Past. You need to deliver Roses for this one. There is a shop in the very North part of the map that sells Roses, it’s called Flowers 2 Go. Then you need some garlic, you can find this at another vendor in the North of the town, called Hero’s Harvest.
Head to here, in the school, and speak with the teacher. Head to the Mystery Club Room. You may have to visit a few times to get the correct dialogue for this Side Case. Head to the Faculty Room upstairs. When you are searching for traps, check the right door, something is blocking it.
Use the Noise Keyword on the Buzz app and it will take you to this arcade. Inside, there’s a claw machine with a single penguin inside. Use the Detector on it and investigate it. After 6 attempts, paying twice, I quit the mini-game to ask the attendant to reset the prizes. However, once I quit, a member of staff came across and offered to sell it for 10,000 Yen. I took the offer, because these mini-games are stupid.
Use the Noise keyword and head to this location. Use the Detector device and look up into the sky. There’s a drone here. Zoom in and investigate the drone to get this Side Case.
After you’ve found the drone head to this location and speak with the man in the alley. You must use the device and investigate him first.
You need the dog for this mission so if it’s not available, proceed with the story until you get the dog. After completing the previous mission, use the Noise Keyword tool again and head to this location. There’s a red ticket machine here, use the Detector Device and inspect a wallet that’s sitting on the floor nearby. Call your dog and it will lead you to your target.
Use the Noise Keyword again and this time it will take you to the high school. Head into the school, you will need to find a few bugs. Use the Detector as soon as you enter and you get a signal. Follow it to the right, to the Cafeteria. Inspect one of the vending machines in the back for the first bug.
Pull out the Detector again and follow the signal. Head out the nearby door and into the Gym. Inspect the plug socket in the North East corner, by the door, on the pillar covered in a green fabric. Leave the gym using the west door for the next bug.
For the next bug, head downstairs, to the basement. The Dance Club Room. There’s some boxes on the side, inspect those for the next bug.
The 4th bug can be found on Floor 2 of the main building. There’s a set of lockers at this location, inspect Locker 12.
The final bug can be found in the Mystery Research Club Room. There are some wires on the ceiling. Follow them to the back of the room and you will see another wire, this one hanging loose below. Inspect that area for the final clue
Take the taxi to the next Noise Keyword location and climb down the ladder right next to the taxi. Inspect the manhole cover with the Detector to find the bug.
Take the taxi to The Bee. Right near the taxi is a sign that says “Good Jewelry 1F”. Follow those steps up. There is a bowl on the floor near the door, use the Detector on that.
I didn’t get this Side Case until Chapter 13, but I assume it’s available much sooner. I just didn’t explore at night. You need to be in the city at night and I got an update for a keyword, Fleeing Overnight, that took me to this location. Once you arrive, speak with the family, and then use the Detector on a plug that’s on the floor, near the black dice.
Toward the end of Chapter 4 take a taxi to Kamurocho. Investigate both the keywords and then head to Cafe Alps. Investigate the sign on the door, turn it over, read the SoS.
Check out our Kappa Roam Video Guide. Near the end of Chapter 4, when the story objective is to return to Kamurocho. You can find this Side Case here. Defeat the civilian in a fight then. Use the keyword tool. The Keyword tool will bring you to a rough location for each of the different Kappa Statue locations.

I then went to eat, came back and listened to them, they talked further about the price. Once they have done talking, you can then purchase it from the Pawn Shop.
Once you have found all 6, return to Yokohama 99.
In Chapter 4, after you can do Side Cases in Kamurocho, head to the batting cages. There’s some old men outside talking. They will talk about Stalkers and give you a new keyword. You can then use that to find this Side Case. Head to the location and use the Investigation gadget to look at the man on the roof. Search the office and then use the Noise Amp gadget to reveal the man hiding in the ceiling.

Lost Judgment Side Case Guide City – Chapter 13 (Final Chapter)Many of these Side Cases are likely available much earlier in the game.
