A few months ago, it was revealed that popular Japanese singer and actor GACKT would be voicing the role of yet another video game villain.
GACKT's trademark voice and bizarre stage presence have made him a popular choice for voicing video game characters in the past, including Genesis from Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core and Lau from the PS2 action title, Bujingai. He also appeared in advertisements for Metal Gear Solid 2.
This time around, he will be voicing Ex, the antagonist of the upcoming title Gundam Extreme VS. An introduction video was recently released, featuring this character in action, and of course, the voice of GACKT (who is well-known for being a Gundam fanboy) himself.
If you want to promote a game in Japan, what better way than to use one of the country's biggest stars?
