Lost Judgment could be the last game in the series, thanks to the controversy over the portrait rights of actors

Controversy between Sega And Lost judgment Actor Takuya Kimura’s caricature agency may stop developing the series, a new report claims.

Japanese entertainment news site Nikkan Daishu has announced that the series will appear on PC because Kimura’s talent agency Johnny & Associates, who has a great name, does not want actors to appear in games on the platform. I’ve covered a story that suggests it’s blocking you.

Apparently, Johnny’s & Associates said [likeness] That talent right, and the use of their images online, is still limited to a few, “he wants to hold the portrait firmly. However, it is not clear why console games are OK and PC games are an exclusion zone for the company.

“Game developers and Johnny are said to have failed to reach an agreement on a platform for selling games,” says the Daily Daishu Report (Thanks, Kotaku).

As a result, both Judgment and Lost Judgment are not yet visible on Steam. According to a report in the daily collection, it is doubtful about posting photos of actors online, and there is also distrust of the company’s Internet.

“The game maker decided that if Steam couldn’t deliver the game, it would be very difficult from a business perspective. The series ends with the second game, Lost Judgment.”

This is bad news for Kimura himself, as the actors apparently really like this series. “He seemed to have a strong desire to continue the series, but he said he was very disappointed to hear that he might not be able to do that,” the report said.

Lost Judgment will be released worldwide on September 24th for PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S.

Pre-orders have begun and you can choose from a variety of services, including Standard, Digital Deluxe, and Digital Ultimate Edition, which gives you early access to the game on September 21st. See the link for more information.
