Catherine sounds a lot like persona

#1 Posted by kingzetta (4307 posts) -

Troy Baker (Persona 4's Kanji) will voice Vincent 
Laura Bailey (Persona 4's Rise) will voice Catherine 
Michelle Ruff (Persons 3's Yukari) will voice Katherine 
 
When you play it do you think this will be distracting?

Holy shit for real? Fuckin' sold.

They probably won't sound exactly the same

Hopefully they're good enough actors to the point where you won't really notice it. Or ideally, you can pick the japanese voices, which is what i would prefer anyway.

Not even slightly.

Ms. Ruff definitely put on a voice for Yukari. I'm sure she can do the refined, assertive woman voice as well.

Wait, Nolan North isn't voicing Catherene and Keith David isn't voicing Katherene? I'm fuckin OUT.

It was confirmed about Ruff?

#9 Posted by Captain_Felafel (1553 posts) -

Seeing as Michelle Ruff also voices Rukia from Bleach, she's definitely capable of very-different sounding voices from Yukari. Not so sure about Troy Baker, who played Snow in FFXIII, nor Laura Bailey, who voiced Serah also from FFXIII, since those two characters are pretty similar in tone to Kanji and Rise respectively, but who knows right? I expect we'll see an English voiced trailer within a month or so now that the bulk of the voice cast is out in the open, guess we'll find out then.

It would be awesome if Vincent says "get bent"

It's actually Nolan North doing a Impression of Keith David doing an Impression of  Michelle Ruff.

I hope that means they're retooling all of Catherine's mocap using Nolan North. I'd love to see those behind the scenes.

If that was true, I would totally buy the game.

Laura Bailey voiced Kaine in Nier, Trunks in DBZ, Isara in Valkyria Chronicles and  Chun-lin in SF4 so I'd say she certainly has a lot of range.

Laura Bailey has the most range of those three.

Yukari/Cindy as Katherine, hm? Not what I was expecting, and it doesn't seem a great fit. I think I would have preferred Tara Platt (Mitsuru). But hey, I may be wrong! Maybe Ruff can pull it off.

I don't think there is any mocap in the game.

You might be right, but a man can dream! 
I prefer all my erotic jigglings to be based on the motion captured movements of Nolan North. This makes finding good porn very difficult however.

There actually was mocap in the game if the credits are to be believed.

I hope we will hear Johnny Yong Bosch (Young Detective) or Yuri Lowenthal  (Yosuke). That would certainly make my day.
 
I gotta say though, playing all those Japanese games that I do, Laura Bailey is quickly becoming the most recognizable female voice in video games for me. And I like it. (gender specification necessary because no one can beat Nolan North)

#22 Posted by ch3burashka (5017 posts) -

Those are great voice actors, although maybe I'm identifying them with their characters and how I like them. 
 
Any news on Chie's voice actress...?

I would assume it's just easier for Atlus to pull in voice actors that they have worked with in the past.

Yup, you can say whatever you want about the  frequency of her appearance in games, but unlike hacks like Yuri Lowenthall, the girl's got range.

Yes. That's the reason why these VA's were pulled in again. It kinda sucks, but atleast they're high-quality.

I'd like if there was an option to keep Japanese voices. The voice actors assigned to Catherine so far are amazing, but I always prefer to hear the original language.
