    Hey guys,

    Been playing the game for quite a bit and have been wondering why there's barely any voice acting in the major cutscenes. So I went on Youtube and found the same cutscenes I already watched but with voice acting present. Is my leaked download missing some files or is it a settings thing or what?

    Up until Kakariko you should hear two people talking in cutscenes.
    The mysterious old man and the lady with the big hat. (I know their names. Trying not to spoil here!).
    If that doesn't work for you that may very well mean your version either simply has no audio for your region or your download is defective.
    I have never seen anyone from Austria post here, so i am not entirely certain which language it should output.
    My Wii U is from germany but the language is set to english.
    Why not try fiddling around with your Wii U region/language settings?
    It may very well work.

    Thanks, after toying around a bit turns out the problem was in the audio settings of the WiiU.
    Switching audio output from surround to stereo solved it. Never had a problem with that before, but whatever Nintendo...

    Are you using ARC? I had the same issue in ME3 and it's because the WiiU doesn't play nice with ARC on my Vizio. Directly connecting to my Denon AVR fixed the issue.

    Hah, yes. I had the same problem before. I couldn't hear voices during cutscenes in some other game. Same thing.

    The only voice I'm hearing is the female voice that says "Link, link", etc. The old man just makes grunting noises. My Wii U is a UK one, set to English and set to Surround output, and is connected to my receiver (which doesn't support ARC) via HDMI

    The old man doesn't speak... He only makes grunting sounds.
