Voice and mocap actors revealed for Resident Evil 6

During last night’s Resident Evil panel at Comic Con, Capcom announced the voice and motion capture actors for Resident Evil 6.

Here’s the list, which reads like a who’s who of video game voice actors:

Ada Wong/Carla Radames: Michelle Lee (body) Courtenay Taylor (voice)
Chris Redfield: Reuben Langdon (body) Roger Craig Smith (voice)
Helena Harper: Katherine Randolph (body) Laura Bailey (voice)
Jake Muller: Troy Baker (body, Voice)
Leon S. Kennedy: Jason Faunt (body) Matthew Mercer (voice)
Piers Nivans: Kevin Dorman (body) Chris Emerson (voice)
Sherry Birkin: Sara Fletcher (body) Eden Riegel (voice)
Voice Over Director: Liam O’Brien

Resident Evil 6 arrives on PS3 and Xbox 360 in October, and allows players to experience the plot through three scenarios.

The story is too old to be commented.

They got rid of Sally Cahill for Ada Wong and Paul Mercier for Leon.....WTF

Why can't they just settle down on voice actors...

They're antsy? It could be that the new voice actors are cheaper, or even better skilled and more expensive. My money's on cheaper.

Probably...it is Capcom

As I was saying though in another article Paul Mercier is voicing Leon in the CGI film Damnation...pretty sure Sally is in it aswell. Wouldn't it be cheaper to get them to do RE6s lines while they're in a sound booth.

That back a forth between the two characters in RE4 won't be the same in RE6 since they'll sound differen't. They sound a like but I think I'll know now because they've confirmed it that it's not the same

Can you blame them though SeekDev...Michael Ironside is amazing. Plus they said it was because of the motion acting since Ironside is old but I still think he could do it. Richard who plays Sully in Uncharted does motion cap acting and he's older then Ironside. I think it was because he's too expensive for them now.

I'm curious about how much flak they're catching for changing voice actors so much. Just look at Splinter Cell: Blacklist, they got rid of Michael Ironside and the community had a mini rebellion.

@MikeCosgrove

Ironically the new voice actor is also similarly named Mercer. What a coincidence.

Matthew Mercer? Oh wow, kudos to the guy, I really enjoyed There Will Be Brawl so it's nice to see him moving onto bigger things.

Wha...? What happened to Paul? Replaced by a guy with the same last name... jeez.
