Sega has unveiled Yakuza spin-off Judgment's newly revised character model for crime boss Kyohei Hamura, which was overhauled following the arrest of actor Pierre Taki on charges of cocaine use and possession last month.
The western version of PlayStation 4 game Judgment will be changed before release after the Japanese actor behind one of its characters was arrested for cocaine use.
Yakuza's detective-themed spin-off Judgment will be heading to PlayStation 4 on June 25th, Sega has announced.
Judgement is the work of regular Yakuza developer Ryu ga Gotoku Studio, and follows the adventures of Takayuki Yagami, an ex-defence-attorney turned private detective. And because there's apparently no such thing as a happy PI, Yagami is "haunted by the demons of his past".
Yagami takes a turn into the world of Yakuza when he begins investigating a serial murder in the Tokyo district of Kamurocho - the primary setting for the Yakuza games. What unfolds is an action-adventure that borrows certain elements from the core series, including a fighting system similar to that of Yakuza Zero, with an added focus on investigation. "Search for clues, collect evidence, track down criminals, and bust some heads", says Sega.
