Aye. They spend a lot of time talking about the most pointless question, and gloss over the only vaguely interesting one(what was it like working on it?).

@PimblyCharles: I'd choose Gatherine too.

Only of a few of us will be playing for the story + gameplay, everyone else will be getting it because they think it's a hentai game.

@xenomus: Fuck will not buy it then

People like you are the worst. Atlus's localizations are some of the best in the industry.

It's cool to see some of these people behind the localized characters,

wish they'd at least try an offer a deluxe version in my morose part of Europia though.

WOMEN!!!!!!!!!!!

Atlus's English localizations are amazing.

Dude. Atlus has the best localization team, why are people complaining? 

Posted by Addfwyn

Looks decent enough to me, people who want the original language can just import the original (at least for PS3 it's easy enough). It's a pretty enjoyable game, so I wouldn't let something like the language it's in deter you. While I appreciate wanting your media in as close to the original format as possible (I do as well, with everything from movies to games) sometimes there just isn't necessarily the demand there.

Thankfully, there are always imports, though the current exchange rate may make it hard for folks in the US. I paid 60,000 yen for my copy, I have no idea what that translates to in USD these days.

Troy Baker's got that swagger.

Becos' they be so W33aB00 H@rdc0r3 fur l!f3!

The only problem I'm going to have with the NA voice acting is that it might be hard to disassociate them with previous characters they've played, but I don't need to start flinging shit at the wall demanding a JP voice track. As far as picking it up, it's not a day 1 purchase, it's a already paid in full and just waiting for it to arrive purchase.

I'm just waiting for release date since I've already paid the $60 through Amazon pre-order.

@Ygg:

Fuuka was the only one I really hated from Persona 3, I thought everyone else was fine!

Ew, yes. I did not like her at all. Everyone else was totally fine.

It's comments like these I'm used to seeing on websites like Game Trailers, not Giant Bomb.

It's comments like these that make it clear some people don't get the reference.

I don't Snow what you guys are talking about but I'll give you +18 thumbs anyway. roflllll

Dammit, I can't unsee that photoshop of Morooka's head on Catherine's body in that picture.

More than just a little bit drunk!

Those guys do some good voice work.

It looks like Mr. Blondie, on the left, would choose the one with the G over C or K. G for guy... you know... cause he's gay.

I'm fine with this. Normally I prefer Japanese audio, but Atlus games (especially Persona) usually feature pretty decent English dubs. They're far from perfect, and that's okay because these games should have a certain degree of cheese and goofyness.

Posted by dropabombonit

Going to import this because there is still no word on a UK release

Posted by Feikken

pretty good interview considering Atlus probably told them not to say shit about the story of the game and everyone pretty much knows the gameplay.

Posted by kouotsu
@msgrimmey: Because the people that are complaining have appreciation for the Japanese voice acting? I don't see how it's any different than complaining if they changed all the music. I watch/listen to a lot of Japanese media, so I am familiar with a lot of the voice actors in Catherine's Japanese cast. I like them a lot so it was one way of knowing I'd really enjoy the game. They cut it out, so I'm complaining. You'd do the same if it were something you wanted to see or hear in a game, so why are you pretending like this is just incomprehensible?
Posted by LiquidPrince

I want that giant Catherine poster!

Posted by Hoffer

That looks so awesome!! Day one purchase

Posted by msgrimmey

@koutsu, that's not what bugs me. What bugs me are the people who say, 'OH THIS SHIT IS GONNA SUCK.' When all we've heard are little snippets from commercials, at least wait til you can actually hear a good chunk of it.

Posted by ominousbedroom

I want to work at Atlus. Everyone associated with that place seems so chill.

Awesome. Can't wait!

The thing is you have to realize is that there is not real DEMAND for it from Atlus, Not to mention legal issues a company must go through to even GET the japanese dub, you know they need consent from them as well right? So why go through all these hoops when they are supplying an excelling dub in the first place?
 
Int he end the major issue is people are saying they will not buy the game/ say the game will not be good because something so simple as not having the voice acting from the Japanese cast. If you really want that, and it's fine if you do, then get ahaold of Atlus Japan and talk to them. Don't complain on forums that won't get you heard, you know?

Game takes place in America.
 
Is by Atlus, King of Localized VA Goodness™.
 
Has Top-Tier VAs on the job.
 
Complain about lack of Japanese VA.

Posted by Fearbeard

Looking at Troy Baker's imdb listing gave me quite a bit of faith...  Most of his roles that I've seen have been pretty solid....
 
I haven't seen much of Travis Willingham's work though.
 
The true test is going to be the female voices though...  hopefully they aren't completely shrill and unbearable

The fuck? The comments section was infiltrated by weeaboos!
 
EDIT: Actually, the majority seem to be sensible people who know that Atlus is awesome at localizations.

Is the guy on the left wearing a Final Fantasy XIII themed necklace?

YAY mediocre dub i really REALLY hope they have the japanese voices in there or else that would be a huge bummer

You're an idiot.
Posted by Superkenon

I'll admit to being a guy who usually switches to the original audio when possible (whatever the origin may be), but I know a good dub when I see one.  Troy Baker's one of the best in the industry.  Haven't seen much of Travis' work... only thing that comes to mind right now is Roy Mustang from Fullmetal Alchemist, but I thought that was a good performance too.
 
Anyone who was satisfied with Persona 4's localization doesn't need to be worried here, I should think.

I'll still buy it but I am EXTREMELY disappointed. I am not fluent in Japanese but I know enough to appreciate good acting, and Catherine has some really great names in the cast. Even if the quality of the dub is great, there are certain things that just won't transfer correctly. I just don't see why it's still an issue with the huge storage capacity disks have these days.
As noted a million times, it's got everything to do with licensing issues and not space.

Psyched for the game, seeing as how its P4 Team's first PS3 game. Obviously, I'm waiting for news on P5 - this'll get me by for now.

There are some rumours going around that there may be an October release date in the UK, but there hasn't been anything official announcement, as far as I know. A pity. I've been looking forward to giving this game a go for a while now. I guess we just need to keep our fingers crossed.

Wish we could have heard Troy Baker say 'Get Bent' in Kanji's voice....
Anyways, awesome voice actors, can't wait!
