Compare the Final Fantasy 13 Voices

One thing that shocks me about the video game industry is that to this day, voiceovers for Japanese games ported to America are generally awful. I’m playing through Star Ocean: The Last Hope right now and it is guilty of said sin. However, I must say that Final Fantasy XII for the PS2 offered one of the best voiceover dubs I had heard in years. If this video is indication, it looks like we’ll be able to say the same about Final Fantasy XIII. So what do you guys think?

  1. Not half bad! Having endured several dubbed games that might as well have used computer generated text-to-speech, it’s always good to hear voice acting with actual inflection and emotion. Square’s really starting to get my hopes up.

    Now that I know this, I am going to become an FF XIII news whore just to annoy you.

  3. Wow. This is one the few times where I can say that the American voices are actually better than the Japanese voices.
    I think I’ve only said that this, FullMetal Alchemist, and…uh…oh I forget. Some game. Yeah, that narrows it down.

  4. VAs are partly why I love the “Tales of…” series so much, their voices are great. Granted, some voices can be annoying, but the majority are enjoyable and not hard on the ears. This looks to be a very great example of good VAs.
