Sega halted sales of Judgment following a scandal surrounding voice actor Pierre Taki in March, but it will release a new cheaper version of the game that features Captain Hamura with a new model and voice.
The company apologizes for the major inconvenience that may have come from the halted sales of Judgment, both digitally and physically. In the new version of Judgment, captain Kyohei Hamura will have a different and original character model.
The above image is the original version of the top screenshot, showing Kyohei Hamura based on Pierre Taki’s likeness.
The new price version of Judgment in Japan will release on July 18, 2019 at a lower price of 4,540 yen plus tax.
Judgment is available in Japan for PlayStation 4. The game releases in North America and Europe on June 25, 2019, and it’ll come with Japanese honorifics in its localization. Check here for a closer look at the character model comparisons.
