The Xenoblade Chronicles X localization is going to feature both American and British voice actor, a Nintendo of Europe rep confirmed
I really just want this game to have the option for the original Japanese voices to be included.
The Original has British voices so I appreciate them letting us keep that part of the experience. Having all British voices makes the game stand apart from others. If I had played with Japanese Audio before it might be a bigger deal, but the original is British voices so that is "cannon" to me anyways...not the Japanese voices.
"Good news everyone!"
Oh no..... does that mean the UK is stuck with awful British voice actors? I find even god awful american is better than British.... I'm British btw! Gimme original Japanese or just american pls!
Weird. First time I've seen someone say that. I suppose a different accent is welcome in other countries. British voice acting is well received in america.
Japanese > American and British voice overs. I often find that the language that associates with where the creation takes place, is often best suited for when it's being delivered (think movies, video games, anime, so on.) I can read subtitles just fine.
While I agree to a point, a good dub team can do wonders to get the message across cultural lines. Don't let a few bad dubs color your thinking about the quality of NoA dubs of games. They are the best for a reason.
Very true, there are some amazing dubs. It comes down to preference in the end!
I rather not have to be reading while watching a cut scene.
Wotta bunch of jokers.
This is cool. I like variety in the voice acting. Really it isnt like everyone in the future is going to sound like a bunch of western americans. Besides British voices can sound cool in a game.
I am so used to Xenoblade Brits I may have to go back to it.
I appreciate the fact that they had the foresight to include a variety of accents in the voice overwork. This is supposed to be the remains of the human race, and as such it would make sense for the there to be more than just Americans here, especially in LA.
Very happy to hear that. The all British cast in the original Xenoblade did a wonderful job. Would have terribly missed it. Hopefully they'll make sure you can also play with Japanese voice-over, like you could in the original. If it doesn't fit on the disc, they could add it as a download option.
