Due to Takuya Kimura’s talent agency Johnny & Associates the future of the Judgment series is now in question due to their rules about releasing games starring their actors on PC. As SEGA gears up for a global launch of Lost Judgment later this year the Steam release for the previous entry and the new one seems to have caused quite the headache.

Apparently this break down in relations could see this being the final Judgment game in the series as Kimura will not be allowed to work with SEGA on future projects. It’s unclear if SEGA will simply change the actor to an original design (like Tanimura’s replacement in Yakuza 4 HD) and simply continue the series.
