With the European launch of Resonance of Fate only a couple of weeks away, the development team at tri-Ace are taking some well-earned rest. But we’d like to take you back to August of last year when – in the middle of the busy production schedule of the Japanese version of the game –Shimano-san (producer, SEGA Japan) and Suguro-san (director, tri-Ace), flew out to Los Angeles to over-see the recording of the English Language vocal track.
So, let me introduce you to the three main cast members.
Vashyron is voiced in the west by Nolan North; a name that many gamers out there will be familiar with. If you’ve played any of the Uncharted or Assassin’s Creed games, then you’ll certainly recognise his voice, as he’s the man behind Nathan Drake and Desmond Miles. Actually, have a look at his IMDB page for a full list (he’s been in loads of great games).
The character of Leanne is voice by Jessica Di Cicco, a talented voice-over artist who has appeared in many games and animated series including White Knight Chronicles, Kingdom Hearts II and the BLEACH TV series.
The final member of the trio, Zephyr, is voiced by Scott Menville. Again, Scott is a talented voice-over artist whose vocal chords have appeared in many animated series and movies including Bolt, Open Season, Batman: Gotham Knight and many more. Scott is no stranger to videogames either; having voiced characters in Medal of Honor: Airborne, MySims, Call of Duty 2 and MGS3.
To give you an idea as to how great the English vocal talent is, here’s a short clip from one of the in-game cut scenes. We join our heroes just after a sudden power cut has led Zephyr to stumble upon Leanne in an uncompromising situation. After he has been suitably punished for his mistake, the pair join Vashyron on the rooftop of their hideout to find out what’s going on…
Nolan, Jessica and Scott aren’t the only 3 voices in the game; we’ve an army of talented people all lending their voices to various characters.
The cast list in full:
For those of you who prefer to play JRPGs with the original voice over, Resonance of Fate comes with the option for Japanese voice over with subtitles in English, French, Italian, German or Spanish.
Resonance of Fate is out in Europe on 26th March – we hope that you will enjoy it!
