We've played Final Fantasy XV - here's what you need to know | RPG Site

RPG Site:
Late last week, we got to go and get hands-on with Final Fantasy XV for the first time, getting a good chunk of time to experience Episode Duscae, the upcoming demo of the game that's set to ship as a download code with first-print copies of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD later this month.

There's a lot to talk about - so rather than a regular article explaining what we played and what we thought, we've recorded a special edition of the TetraCast, RPG Site's Podcast. This special edition focuses only on Final Fantasy XV: Episode Duscae, with a whopping hour and a half of in-depth explanations and analysis of the content of the demo - all while remaining spoiler-free.

... will the western release of the game have the option for the Japanese voices...!?

This is really the least of my worries, unless it was an anime based game.

I was just reading through the latest issue of GamesTM (158), and a bad dub can really negatively affect a game, as was also mentioned in a big article about the Final Fantasy series, where they called the English dub for FFXV 'questionable', and 'the budget anime dub feel' of Final Fantasy X 'jarring'.

The Leona Lewis song at the end of Final Fantasy XIII also wasn't popular with the writers.

Point is, it might not bother YOU, but a (poor) dub will obviously be detrimental to the game for many others, either because of the quality of the dub itself, or simply because of the opinion that a game, cartoon or movie should ALWAYS offer the option for the original language/voices.

In this day and age, with almost limitless storage-space and big download speeds, there really is no good reason any more to leave that option out of games like these.

For the demo : Yes.
For the final game : maybe.

Thank you :) I hope they'll include the option in the final release :)

Hopefully the "Maybe" becomes at least DLC or post-release update.
