Karen Strassman, voice of Nanako, is the voice of Kitana.

The fact that she was also Izanami and Kanji's mother in P4 proves she has great range but still, wow

I didn't even think of attributing this voice actress to Kitana until I read it and then I replayed "You will learn respect!" in my head and now my mind is blown.

Big bro, what does he mean by "Finish Him"?

I... I just don't know what to think... My world has turned upsode-down!

#3 Posted by EquitasInvictus (2029 posts) -

Because I just finished a Persona 3 FES playthrough I noticed how much more Kitana sounded like Aigis. However, when I looked it up myself after noticing I myself was surprised to find she also voiced Nanako.

As well as Kallen in the Code Geass dub... and Kei Nagase in Ace Combat 5...
Yeah she's all over the place. Apparently she even narrates commercials!

She also voiced the Gas Station attendant and Izanami in Persona 4.

#11 Posted by EquitasInvictus (2029 posts) -
@thehexeditor Yeah! As soon as I heard Kitana speak in MK I heard the resemblance.

I wasn't very surprised after looking it up.

Yes, this one fact provides enough overlap.

Normally when I discover two characters are voiced by the same person I can usually listen closely and notice enough little things to tip me off that it's true. Watch Family Guy and really listen to everyone's voices and you'll quickly notice which characters share a voice actor. This, however, completely different. Literally none of her normal voice bleeds through into Nanako. That is talent.

  

  Here is a sample of her voice for your listening pleasure. This cutscene is from the first hour or so of the game, so no major spoilers.

Well, in the thread about the new P4 anime, some people didn't see the point in watching the show because we already know who the killer is. But maybe this knowledge means the writes can make Nanako the killer in the anime.

Well, that seems sensible. Kanji was one bad dude, as is Kabal.

But now I have to buy this game (I was going to anyway, but still).

We need to find a Karen Strassman on Karen Strassman dialogue, first. =(

Nah, MK is still too butt-ugly for that.

Now that I'm listening for it I can hear Kanji in Kabal, but I can't hear any of Strassman's previous roles in Kitana. An impressive feat. Well, maybe there's a little Nagase in there, but just a pinch. But it's been a very long time since I've played AC5.

  Here's a non-spoiler scene from Persona 3 FES with Aigis, also voiced by Karen Strassman. I think she sounds most like Kitana in this role:
