No Western delay for Judgment as SEGA opts to replace Pierre Taki

There was good news for those waiting for Ryu Ga Gotoku’s latest title Judgment today as SEGA confirmed on twitter that the PlayStation 4 detective adventure is still set to hit Western shores on June 25th 2019. There was some worries that Pierre Taki’s arrest on hard drugs charges was going to delay the game but the publisher came out today to assure fans the game will still be arriving on time. On twitter SEGA had this to say:

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the character model and Japanese voice for the character of Kyohei Hamura will be adjusted for the Western release of Judgment, launching on June 25, 2019. Screenshots and trailers featuring Hamura have been temporarily removed from all of SEGA’s official channels. Updated versions of these materials will be made available at a later date.

The bad news is obviously Taki will no longer be part of this game due to his run in with the law. If you’re familiar with Taki’s work how does this make you feel, or if you think of a suitable replacement, why not drop a message in our comment section?

    I wonder if this Will effect Sega fan now that they are going to replace A voice actor. in a way is IT okay to say that this follows on the category censorship?

    Or should we as a Sega fan / collector buy the uncensored version, and does IT going to effect something when you are streaming the game?

    This is a thing in Japan, unfortunately. You screw up, you’re erased from existence, and maybe in 10 years you can have your own personal redemption arc.
