As you all know, Judgment‘s shipments and digital sales were halted last March because of the actor Pierre Taki’s charge of the illegal possession and use of cocaine. Taki takes on the role of Kyohei Hamura on Judgment. Then, Sega has thought a solution to this matter. The game company has announced the plans to replace the character model and voice for Kyohei Hamura on the Western release of Judgment. In the New Price Version, it will reflect on the changes for Kyohei Hamura.
