The first thing I noticed about Vincent.

#1 Posted by papercut (3501 posts) -

So this is probably the least weird thing about the game Catherine, but It's been nagging at me. 
 
Dudes hair. 
 
First thing I thought when I saw it was "hey, that looks a lot like Spikes hair from Cowboy Bebop, or perhaps Mugen from Samurai Champloo. Come to think of it, they had the same voice actor too. I wonder what the chances of this guy having the same guy as well." Sure enough, on the Catherine page, the Japanese voice actor is the same guy who did Spikes voice. 
      
So I ask you, what are the chances that Steve Blum, the english voice actor, will continue this hair-to-voice connection. And why does this connection even exist? Am I missing something here? Is there some sort of Steve Blum conspiracy? Should I stop clipping my nails and start collecting my urine in jars? Am I asking to many questions? Am I next?! What was I talking about?

@papercut: I thought the same thing.  This is awesome.  I loved Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo.  This game should be good.

Atlus actually has a bit of a history of doing this with their character designs and voice actors, where if they get a prominent person to voice a role of some sort in their game, they'll design the character accordingly to resemble someone recognizable as a bit of a wink-and-a-nod sort of thing. Persona 3 and 4, for example, somewhat did this with Igor. Although the character himself has existed since long before the games got any large amounts of voice acting, the guy who did his Japanese voice, Isamu Tanonaka, was pretty well-known for voicing a similarly old guy who also had an equally prominent eye.

There goes my hopes of Vincent being played by Nolan North.  With Yuri Lowenthal and Troy Baker as his two friends.

There's still the chance that the rest of the characters will be voiced by Nolan...

Absolutely, Nolan North talking to Nolan North when Nolan North comes into the room and starts talking to the other two Nolan Norths's. 
That could be pretty good.

The first think I thought was he looked like a 20 year old Dojima.

I hope Steve Blum's his voice actor; that'd be great.  But I'm sure that the voice actors for an eventual English version will be great, given Atlus' history with that aspect (except for Fuuka).

It could be a givin' that Laura Bailey will be in on this as either the girlfriend or Catherine herself if this get's a US release. She's too good of a VA not too.
