Judgment Game Gets New Version in Japan on July 18
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Sega announced on Tuesday that it will begin offering a "New Price Version" of its Judgment (Judge Eyes: Shinigami no Yuigon) PlayStation 4 game in Japan on July 18. The release will have the new model and voice for the character Kyohei Hamura, with the same model used in the game's Western release.
Sega changed the character model and Japanese voice for the character Kyohei Hamura in the Western release after the arrest of Denki Groove member and actor Pierre Taki on charges of illegal possession and use of cocaine.
Sega temporarily ceased sales of the game after the arrest. The game shipped in Japan last December.
The game will launch in the West as previously scheduled on June 25.
Greg Chun stars in the English dub as Takayuki Yagami. Other dub cast members include by Crispin Freeman, Matthew Mercer, Cherami Leigh, Yuri Lowenthal, James Hong, Ed O'Ross, Amy Walker, Matt Yang King, Fred Tatasciore, and Brian McNamara. The dub cast will include guest appearances by SungWon Cho, Cristina Vee, and Max Mittelman.
The game will have both English audio and Japanese audio with English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish subtitles. The game will feature two different sets of subtitles, one that matches the English audio track and one translating the Japanese audio track.
Sega describes the game:
Step into the mind of Takayuki Yagami and utilize investigation skills to uncover the secrets that lie deep within Kamurocho's corrupt underbelly when Judgment launches in summer 2019!
