Voice acting in this game was stellar. Yuri was a great character.

The beat lead in a Tales game IMHO. And arguably ANY JRPG. He was SO different from the typical wide-eyed JRPG archetype.

You are right. Yuri is truely a bad ass character while also a compassionate one. He is much different from other goody go lucky jrpg characters.

@ bab

I’d put Velvet over Yuri and every other Tales lead character for this scene alone

This game is what put Troy Baker on the track to become an A-list voice actor and they didn’t even bother trying to contact him to reprise his role?

TekoIie25d ago

That's more than likely the problem.

They probably CAN afford him, but perhaps they're not willing to spend that money on him.

I personally don't care though, but it seems many liked his performance, and if his replacement does a poor job, that will affect players' opinions and review scores, thus sales...

Maybe they didn't need to record more lines? I mean isn't it a remaster?

Reibooi25d ago

The game is based on the PS3 version that never came out in the US and that version had full voice over for everything and added tons of new lines so there would be many new lines to record.

Unless there is new voice work need3d, I doubt they would call him. At the time this game was made, he probably isn't even eligible for royalties in the rerelease.

Razmiran25d ago (Edited 25d ago )

There are new voiced parts, yes

rainslacker25d ago (Edited 25d ago )

For his part though? There have been other tales remasters, and places where they added in stuff often went involved. Just text was added

Razmiran25d ago

The parts in the japanese version are spoken, I guess they could make them silent
But I think "Full voice acting" was one of the selling points of the "Complete" version

Troy Baker's voice acting is top notch. Honestly, I don't mind that he gets so many roles.
More on topic though, this is the first I'm learning of the remaster, can't wait.

I'll buy this game when i have the time. It's more of an If not When though...

Lets hope the new sections dont sound strange. I love this entry
