'Kingdom Hearts III' Changing Olaf’s Japanese Voice Following Actor's Arrest

Sega pulls Judgment from sale in Japan following drug arrest

As a result, Sega announced that it was temporarily halting sales of its Yakuza spin-off, Judgment - which recently released in Japan - for Taki's involvement in the game.

Given Taki also voices Olaf in the Japanese version of Kingdom Hearts III - as well as the Frozen movie franchise - it's entirely possible Sega will be the first of many companies to take action.

For those that don't know: possession or use of cocaine in Japan can land somebody up to seven years in prison. More information on the update's content and when will it launch will be disclosed at a later date.

As expected, Square Enix announced today that Pierre Taki's voice will be removed from Kingdom Hearts 3. Presumably, the actor they find will be voicing Olaf in both Kingdom Hearts III and Frozen 2. It's unknown if this is a change that will be reflected in physical shipments of Kingdom Hearts III, however.
