Drug Charge Results in Halted Sales of ‘Yakuza’ Spin-Off Game ‘Judgment’

Judgment Ps4

Some unexpected news has come out regarding Judgment, the Yakuza spin-off. A year later, copies of anime Kill Me Baby were pulled from circulation when voice actress Ai Takabe was arrested for cocaine possession. This will affect both physical and digital sales. According to news reports, police searched Taki's auto and house based on tips, and no drugs were found, but Taki himself tested positive for cocaine use. It happened a scant few months ago with the remaster of Yakuza 4, after Hiroki Narimiya was allegedly photographed in 2016 using... cocaine again?

It is not known if this incident will have any influence on the Western release of Judgment, which is scheduled for June 25. "We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause for customers, as well as the parties involved".

Voice actor Pierre Taki plays the role of Kyohei Hamura, the captain of the Matsugane family in Judgment.

While Sega has put a pause on the shipment and digital sales of Judgment, Square Enix has decided that the character he voiced, Olaf, who appears in the world based on Frozen, will have his voice changed for the Japanese version of the game. SEGA Japan released a statement saying it was still confirming facts and figuring out its next best step.

Sega of Japan has also deleted all tweets related to Judgment.

On Twitter, Sega said it would also be deleting marketing tweets about the game. Publisher SEGA has stated that the Western release, currently due to hit United States and Europe in June, is now "under consideration". It's the kind of charge we wouldn't be surprised to see leveled at a celebrity in the U.S. or United Kingdom (assuming they were prosecuted at all), but drug possession and use is treated as a much more serious offense in Japan. In a press release, Sega announced that distribution and promotion of Judgement from their side would be halted, Taki replaced within the game and off shelves for the time being.
