The Pokémon series has always used text or boxes, but as more generations are released, the lack of voice acting makes less and less sense
That's Nintendo's MO; take the least risks and maximize profit. They are too cheap to hire voice actors. I thought BotW would have full voice acting, but it was only in sections smh.
I think Sunshine has more voice acting than most of their switch games
It definitely does.
The game can't even run smoothly. Let's start there before adding things.
It does make sense actually Gamefreak are incompetent, there's your answer
Disagree with the author’s reasoning here, but ultimately Pokemon games have plenty more to fix before they get to voice acting
It’s not uncommon with JRPGs, although now you’re seeing it be a feature like in Crisis Core Reunion. However, Yakuza has a mix of voice acting and just text.
PSP Crisis Core had voice acting. They redid the voice acting in Reunion with the new Remake actors.
because fans are willing to settle for mediocrity, so they don't care.
They sell tens of millions and no VAing. Small indie games have VAing...
Nintendo and Gamefreaks incompetence.
When I think about it.....most nintendo games don't have voice acting in the first place.
Voice acting has long been a contentious issue in the Pokémon community. As the games have evolved from 2D linear journeys to 3D open-world adventures, integrating voice acting into the series has become the logical next step for Game Freak.
