Sega pulls Judgment from sale in Japan following drug arrest

The health ministry's drug division said actor and musician Pierre Taki, 51, was arrested earlier this week on suspicion of using cocaine.

Square Enix will release an update for Kingdom Hearts III in Japan that changes the Japanese voice of Olaf, who appears in the game's Frozen-set world Arendelle, the company announced.

As reported by Kotaku, investigators arrested Taki after receiving a tip the actor had been using cocaine, and although a search of his property and vehicle proved fruitless, a urine test eventually came back positive.

This comes off the heels of Sega announcing it is halting all sales of Judgment, in which Taki also voices a character.

The maximum penalty upon conviction for using cocaine in Japan is seven years in prison.

More information on the update's content and release will be announced on a later date.

Kingdom Hearts III is available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. In Disney's Frozen, Pierre Taki is the Japanese voice of Olaf.
