    I have gotten used to japanese voice over in games lately, but ATLUS usually does such a good job with the voice casting, I never really have to worry about my ears being burned off with terrible VA.

    Oh look persona news... let's see who posted this... oh wait i don't have to look... is @Chary
    Almost as if there was not gonna be anyone else. Do you like take all news related to persona? :P

    Serious note, i never heard of these people before, not in anime or games. I had hope for some like people i would know, are these people well received by their previous roles? Cause i just dunno them, not like steve blum, stephine shea, or Jonny Young Bosch Michelle ruff, mae whiteman, Nolan north. i guess i dunno what i was expecting to be honest. :unsure:

    Seems to be a good cast! I personally prefer japanese voices in games like these (anime aesthetics & takes place in Japan).

    Looking forward to this.

    I think at this point, all those actors have become so mainstream that they now cost far too much money to cast. It's nice to see smaller companies like Atlus and Idea Factory casting these new talent in games. It also keeps games from feeling too same-y. I like Laura Bailey/Troy Baker/Etc as a voice actress/actors, but jeez, they're cast every 5 seconds.

    I suppose that deserves respect :)

    But please don`t use adjectives like that. Is not really best way to desceibe things Saying things likeb "same-y" while also not a word in dictionary seems vauge and probably insulting to some, is like if i was referencing for example a sonic game that doesn't play like one of the games on genesis that is not "sonic-iky" enough to be called sonic, or freedom planet is a "Sonic-iky" game. :P

    Don't be upset, i'm not sayiny you're wrong in your statement, once again i established that i respect as it make sense the people i mentioned are probably worth lot more value to hire and not using new people doesn't allow more people with talent to be discovered.

    Just personally i feel like most of the time the reason why some games don't get get english dubs, not cause is unnecessary but cause the publishers are too cheap to pay for them, either to save money on the project, help of publishing games sooner, or something. I notice more and more that people started doing this more common, and that what i always thought, either one of these ideas of mine could be true or all not. But is something i been considering since games started having voices.:unsure:!

    I'm actually more happy games get english dub when it does, even if is bad like some i know.... (xenogears anime cut scenes) :glare:

    The voice cast seems to be your run of the mill animu cast. Worst case I'll play the PS3 version undubbed after I play the PS4 version :D

    Doesn't seem too bad. Still bummed that there isn't a Japanese dub but that won't keep my from playing.

    Even the eng dub is AWESOME! This just makes things harder to choose between eng or jap dub.
