Sucker Punch's Ghost of Tsushima is extremely intriguing, but not providing western gamers with the Japanese voice track would be a missed opportunity.
Japanese voice track would be awesome, but its not a deal breaker for me. Can't wait for this beauty.
Of course it's not a deal breaker. But yeah, it would be nice :D
usually don't care but for this it's a must.
This is a dream come true! Like playing in an Akira Kurisawa film and all the dreams of what I wanted in a true open world samurai game (hopefully). This will be the next Horizon Zero Dawn in terms of action and story but I'm betting better. Damn and Days Gone too... Sony is delivering the massive games!
Not sure why it really matters since the game is actually a western production, with western actors(although I think at least one is actually Japanese), speaking English as the primary source to do mo-cap/animations and what not The days where the Japanese voice actors were significantly better than the English ones are long gone, and usually only crop up once in a while in poor productions. Heck, I've heard dubs which were much better than their original Japanese counterparts.
I rather have them speak Japanese since the game story is located in Japan in feudal Japan... I don't want britisch/ US accents like AC games had.... Or at least a Japanese voice option. And I disagree, for me it's original before dubs.
Yamete kudasai SENSEIIII
I do like this. It does remind me from The Last Samurai.
It really doesn't remind me of that movie but i don't think your comment is worth a down vote either. it's your opinion.
I didn't downvote you either but it does not remind me of TLS. This is about more than katanas and haori. First they aren't trying to take a situation at the heart of change for Japan and shove a Caucasian character into he lead role. Really a shame since Ken Watanabe was there. The Mongol Invasions of Japan possessed a wholly different character versus that found in the Meiji Restoration period and the fall of the samurai. There is every chance you will have to deal with not only the forces of Kublai Khan but also the piracy that was rife during that period. Hopefully they will not murder history the way they did with TLS - really can't stand that movie - and not try to stretch anything to fit just because someone thinks "it would be cool" (i.e Masamune wasn't smithing during the invasions)
That movie also had japanese accent english. So just give us some japanese accents then I'll be fine.
This game seems like it's begging for a good soundtrack mixed with good Japanese based songs. Like something Kill Bill did when it had the Flower of Carnage or Urami Bushi
i don't think we have to worry about that seeing the Japanese version of the trailer was entirely dubbed in Japanese and seemed more natural as if they mocapped in Japanese...
Actually, it was clear that the mouth movements fit the English voices and not the Japanese voices. That would be the main downside of them having a Japanese voice track. I would still like the option though.
I hate dubbing. Please, let Japanese characters speak Japanese.
Yep, hate them too
Yeah but it's obvious the mouth movements of the characters fit the English dialogue, so the Japanese voices will actually be the ones that will appear to be "dubbed". So either they have to commit to Japanese being the original language and having their animators match the mouth movements to the Japanese dialogue. OR they go with English as the original language. I don't think they will opt to go with Japanese as the primary language because, even though many of us would love it, there is the chance that it may alienate some of their potential buyers since not everyone wants to read subtitles.
There is always a language option. But the game remains based on the history of Japan.
Did you just call the game's original language "dubbing"?
English voice tracks are usually pretty good in AAA games. It wouldn't hurt though.
This game looks phenomenal and I believe everything shown was actually in game footage I say leave the Japanese voices use subtitles to see what they're saying. With how this game looks its like they're saying hey guess what he a lot more power in the PS4/PRO that we haven't shown off yet. I can see the PS4/PRO lasting another 5-6 years if they want they're releasing hit after hit with amazing graphics i'm glad I own a PS4PRO and a 4k tv. #HAPPYGAMER :)
5-6 years, man you are a fanboy and a half! what about ps5? And you own a ps4 pro? geez just a few weeks ago you said it wasn't good and you diddn't own it. Try this #big fat liar :D
Dude you're seriously a moron I chose a PS4PRO over the Xbox One X and I'm choosing a Switch over it to you really make yourself look dumb. I'm not a fanboy I own a PS4PRO and I was on here not long ago talking to someone in the comments about the best 4k tvs for the PRO. I have an Xbox One S and bought Call of Duty Ghosts for it all the way up to Infinite Warfare and now I own Call of Duty WWII for PS4PRO I chose to get all my games I usually got for the Xbox One that came out every year on the PRO now and I plan on getting all the games Sony has coming like a nuke thats going to destroy your Xbox. If anyone is a fanboy here its you and why the hell are you on here reading about Ghost of Tsushima is it because it looks better than any Xbox One X game?? I never said the PS4 wasn't good and I didn't own one anyone here that owns a PS4/PRO can add me and check out the PS4 games I've played. I played Uncharted the Nathan Drake Collection WWE 2k18 LA Noire The Evil Within etc etc my user name is obliviator78 on PS4 and on Xbox One its MetalBrian78 go for it add me anyone can I don't care but... it will prove that I'm not a liar and I'm far from fat you seriously sound like a child by saying "Try this #big fat liar :D" the hashtag should be connected. Again you've been schooled by me so sit back and when I leave a comment think twice before responding fanboy because I'll school your monkey ass every time like I've been doing. And I don't think Sony needs PS5 yet I and I don't think Nintendo needs a new console yet they're doing fantastic I'm more impressed with PS4PRO than Xbox One X I'm a hardcore gamer and it hasn't shown me shit. So remember when I leave a comment Captain Troll think very very hard before you decide to leave a comment because I promise I'll be schooling you each and every time and you're lucky the schooling is free. ;)
Oh and whoever agreed with your monkey ass is just as dumb as you.
Tazzy my boy, lets not revert to name calling, makes you look immature. But come on, you were talking about the best 4k tvs for a pro LOL, make me laugh every time. You should direct him to the best 1080p tvs, and tell him to save his money, otherwise all that 4k tv is going to do is make soup look mighty tasty. Impressed with a pro? a machine that consistently hits 1440p? a machine that doesnt support dolby or dts sound? a machine that doesnt support 4k or sport a 4k player for people with wonderful 4k tvs? a machine that doesnt even supersample for all the ps4 pro peasants without 4k tv? a machine that looks like two ps4 stacked on top of eachother? Well you seem easy to impress, you should check out my dvd player if that impressed u LOL Tazzy my boy... #OWNED
Lmao Lets not revert to name calling um you called me a fat liar you idiot and by the way you type it makes it look like you're a child MOMMY TAZZY CALLED ME NAME. :( Call of Duty WWII looks amazing in 4k on my tv courtesy of the PRO of course where you and your Xbox clan are playing older games from the original Xbox up to the Xbox One with enhanced graphics. If you have Unreal Tournament for PC and you upgrade your gaming rig of course the older game will look better its a given thats what the Xbox One X does it enhances older games WOW. You're talking about PS4PRO here like the Xbox One X is much better they have 0 new games all the games they have are on old game engines Sony and Nintendo are destroying the Xbox brand in sales and with their exclusives. The so called 4k powerhouse might be capable of getting Fable Fortune to run 4k 60fps woooohoo but... its a card game if it can't run it in 4k 60fps theres something wrong there. Checkerboarding sure PS4PRO does it however... the Xbox One X does it to Anthem, Assassins Creed checkerboarding Metro Exodus running on PC developers are trying to get it to run in 4k don't mean it will happen. Another stupid thing to say "otherwise all that 4k tv is going to do is make soup look mighty tasty" <- wtf does that even mean moron soup has nothing to do with a 4k tv or game console. You called me fat before you're talking about food I think you're the fatty you big liar search Brian Tomczyk on Facebook I have long hair and a schnazzy goatee and I'm nowhere near fat I have muscle tone on me. ;) You seem like peasant that don't have a 4k tv or an Xbox One X I mean this article is about a PS4PRO game and here you are once again making yourself look dumb you called me a fanboy earlier and I'm a hardcore gamer. I'm sure people on here will agree with me when I say you're the fanboy you're here talking about the PS4PRO in a bad way I think you were interested in seeing how amazing this game looks and its all in game action and yes it does look better than anything on Xbox One X "OH MY GOD THE XBOX ONE X ENHANCES OLDER GAMES FROM A DECADE AND A HALF AGO" and theres tons of games incoming for the PS4PRO. Xbox One S had a 4k bluray in it and how well did that take off?? NOT WELL AT ALL big deal it has a 4k bluray in it so does my Xbox One S it don't mean anything you're still playing games on your floor model tv and you own a VCR not a dvd player its all good though. :) Xbox is getting knocked around by Nintendo in sales and its under powered but its beating Xbox and the Switch will end up #2 in the console war leaving the #3 spot to Atari Box or Xbox. :) #SCHOOLEDONCEAGAIN #GRABYOURI'MADUNCEHATPUTIT ON #THENSTAYINTHECORNERUNTILIGIVE YOUPERMISSIONTOLEAVEIT. #ASALWAYSTHESCHOOLINGISFREEFOR YOU #SORRYYOULOOKDUMBWHENEVERYOUTA LK don't respond to anything I say sit back and mind your business. And atleast Sony didn't use the same machine for the PS4PRO Xbox One X looks like the Xbox One X and uses it the same accessories.
There's no Japanese voices to "leave". This is a game made by an American studio, the English voices are the ones there originally.
bro you just named cod wwII, which is a multiplat. A multiplat that looks 1000x better on the x. Tazzy my boy, you dissapoint me. The very reason the x exists is to just trump the multiplats
Dude are you still running your mouth don't have that much to say now do you?? I've been schooling you left and right on here. Call of Duty WWII looks 1000xs better on the Xbox One X a console that does checkerboarding just like the PS4PRO?? You seriously need to do some research when it comes to gaming because like I said I've been schooling your monkey ass on everything. You're a disappointment not me I know about games and consoles and the Xbox One X has nothing for it but enhanced games you can't name 5 games that are coming to the Xbox One X that are built to take advantage of 4k 60fps with the console. The reason why Xbox One X exists is to trump the multiplatform games??? PS4/PRO is a little under powered compared to the Xbox One X but not by much and the sales of the PS4/PRO trump the Xbox brand same with the Switch its under powered compared to the Xbox One and the Xbox One is cheaper and it TRUMPED the Xbox One big time. Theres 2 consoles doing trumping in sales and that the PS4/PRO and the Nintendo Switch nothing wrong with the Xbox One X finishing #3 in the console war it just might cause them to put their games on all platforms. Heres a video of Call of Duty WWII Xbox One X vs PS4PRO the Xbox One X is nowhere near looking 1000xs more powerful not even PC can do it but the graphics are pretty much the same Xbox One X is a tad better looking but not by much. And again I schooled you so learn to sit back and think twice about commenting on what I post because every single time I'm schooling its like I'm taking out a ruler and beating your ass with it. Get your I'M A DUNCE HAT ON AND STAY IN THE CORNER. And name 5 games that are coming to Xbox One X that are built for the console to run 4k 30-60fps without checkerboarding I'll be waiting for your answer and you won't be able to do it. #SCHOOLEDSTRIFEBLADEAGAIN. Click the link Mr Xbox One X looks 1000xs better see for yourself :) https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I mean we are asking for a Japanese voice track but has it even been confirmed that it would not have one?
Gross, who wants to read subtitles instead of looking at those gorgeous visuals? I mean we managed fine without the ancient Greek in God of War.
Ask anyone who's ever watched original uncut anime or old Kung Fu flicks.
I used to be all about the subs in anime. Then I decided I preferred to watch the anime instead of reading it, and went more towards dubs. Granted, nowadays, a lot of the dubs are just as good, and sometimes better, than the Japanese versions, although not across the board, but overall I can get by except in the worst dubs out there. I think if a lot of people actually spoke Japanese, they'd realize that not all Japanese voiced versions are as great as they think they are.
So this is about being a weeaboo?
You know that there are people who can handle both without any issue.
I don't care what anyone says, if your eyes are busy reading text, you're missing out.
Your argument, Its not a fact rather is your opinion. Just because you can't handle multitasking, doesn't mean everyone else is like you. For example, I am not missing anything since I can multitask, and taught myself to do handle both. Playing Japanese/Spanish/Chinese games or watching Anime/Cartoon or watching non English movie with subtitles help me multitask.
Unless you are some kind of a chameleon-like creature that can independently move each of your eyes, then no, when you are reading text, you are missing out. This is science, you may see some shit going on in your peripheral but it's not your focus.
Or like in Horizon Zero Dawn where they speak English even though they live many thousands of years in the future and it's very likely the language would have evolved into something unrecognizable to current English speakers. This is the way it is in most games.
Hey maybe that's why Nintendo games and The Sims have their characters talking gibberish, they're in the distant future speaking New English.
Well, yes and no. In Horizon, their ancestors were taught to speak English by the computer system. While some evolution of language may occur (and seems to have given the writing) it's not a stretch to assume that the base language would be similar, with variations used by different tribes.
Weebs should calm down. 90% of people in this game will talk Mongolian.
Just as Nioh , if Any other language is spoken use it if japanese keep it japanese
Nioh was a game made in Japan. This is not. There's no "keeping" it Japanese.
I would play this game if they had kittens do the voice acting lol. Really can't wait to see some actual gameplay.
Not needed but might be nice as a second play through feature.
I hold the unpopular opinion of preferring English, because I don't speak Japanese. It would be cool for those who do want it though.
Mouth movements are clearly animated to be speaking English. It'd be like an awkwardly-dubbed movie every cutscene. But... eh.
