I hope Noctis's English VA is able to express a broad range of emotions throughout the game

Brooding and not brooding :P

Ultimately, I know I'll play it in Japanese with subs.

Normally I would play this in Japanese. However, their English voices are actually pretty much on par with their Japanese counterparts this go round. There are some voices I like/dislike on both sides though. Either way, I know I'll get used to the ones I'm not so keen on eventually. Really looking forward to this game regardless!

I believe he will. I liked his Batman voice. So I hope his new tone sounds just as good if not better!

Kalebninja1157d ago

I dislike how most fans of Japanese games or anime will always say that the Japanese voices are better no matter how good the English voices are.

It's that new age bullshit, which has ruined a good aspect of rpg's like the lolipop art style. I hate seeing amazing character art, get turned into chibi everything.

Adrian_v011157d ago

It's not new age bullshit, it's actually old age bullshit. When anime just started getting translations into English, the voice overs were terrible, almost torture. it's because the US wasn't familiar with voice overs as much back then, while Germany who was already used to dubbing had amazing ones.

That's not the case anymore for the US today but people still think it is cause they never gave it a try, they still live believing English dubs suck, which might still be true for some anime but not for AAA games. FF X, XII and XIII all had great English voice actors, in XII and XIII they were even better than the Japanese ones imo.

@Adrian_v01

I agree 100% with what you're saying. What I was meaning by my statement is that people have list their minds, believing everything Japanese is consistently good. A lot of theses new age games are stack ons of anime's that a lot of people just dont care about in other forms. A lot the art styles art very lazy all together in general. It's a turn off.

They don't always say that. What about Fullmetal Alchemist? Most JRPG/Anime fans, myself included, agree that the English voice acting is superior in that. And I'm sure there are others. FTR, Noctis' English voice actor was addressed by Square in an interview. It was mentioned, I think by Tabata, that his voice wasn't the direction Square was going for. That probably means there will be a recast.

I enjoy english voice actors.
