Judgment's character redesign doesn't look half bad

Justice is blind

Out of the blue, Sega and Ryu Ga Gotoku Studios have shown off the new look for Judgment character Kyohei Hamura. Originally played by Pierre Taki, Hamura underwent a redesign after the actor was arrested for alleged cocaine use. Sega made the decision to pull the game from Japanese store shelves, a choice which left the Western release in question. While the game ended up not being delayed, I'm surprised at how quickly Sega was able to cast and animate a new actor.

In the trailer below, you can catch the first glimpse of Hamura's redesign in action. From a distance, it's honestly quite hard to tell the two apart. Since the trailer uses the English voice-over, I'm curious as to what his Japanese actor will sound like. It would be quite eerie if Sega somehow found Taki's doppelganger.
