To be fair, I think Erin Fitzgerald is a great VA as well. She just isn't Chie, though!

Japanese Chie is the only Chie for me. Thank god for crazy Japanese fans that will boycott a game if their waifu's voice isn't the same.

Well, that sucks. What character would I know this Erin from?

Does her orginal va not do va anymore?

Unfortunately, these things happen. Certainly isn't the end of the world, though I do wonder why the change occurred.

@TwilitEnd656: You're looking at the wrong forum, son. If this was about JP Chie, it probably wouldn't even get a mention on these boards.

Nah, she just doesn't do videogames. I'm betting her role in P4 was a "right place, right time" thing for Atlus.

#15 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19308 posts) -

I don't really care, especially since it's Chie. It'll start mattering to me if other VAs get replaced.

#16 Posted by MooseyMcMan (10479 posts) -

Now that I've come back to my senses, I can make some sort of coherent statement.

I was already not very interested in this game (because the only part of Persona 4 I care about is story, and this thing looks pretty light on story), but this pretty much confirms that I shan't be buying it.

#17 Posted by Bocam (3672 posts) -

Well American Chie sounds like a 40 year old woman.

#18 Posted by alternate (2682 posts) -

someone youtube link to some jap chie for reference, plz.

#19 Posted by SuperWristBands (2266 posts) -

Yeah, it's unfortunate. Original English Chie is the only Chie. I'm also not too excited about the person replacing her. She has a fine "anime" voice but from what I have heard she isn't the best at delivering lines.
 
Also, I probably have a ridiculous amount of nostalgia goin' on for the original Chie.

This has me more concerned for golden honestly. I mean are they gonna have the orginal voice for old lines and the new voice for the new scenes like they do with blazblye cs extend cause it was really weird In that game and those where characters that im not nearly as familiar with

#22 Posted by ricetopher (1046 posts) -

If Troy Baker gets replaced, then I might be upset, but if there's a voice language select option then I would just switch to Japanese (which I might do anyway since characters in ASW fighters don't know when to shut up)

@MooseyMcMan said:

It will have a dedicated Story Mode that may be lengthy. Atlus has said that the story is canon, that it's an official sequel to Persona 4 and that they're going to be the ones working on it, not Arc System Works. So I don't think this is a valid criticism.

#24 Edited by Animasta (14648 posts) -

Sorry Chie's voice was probably the worst out of the main cast (well... her or Naoto) and while I ironically like 'aha, is this our chance?' it was not actually good voice acting.

bring on Erin! Erica had great voice acting

@ricetopher: now THAT would be blasphemy, Troy Baker is the best <3

This happens all the time but I don't think a fighting game will be long enough for anyone to forget Chie's original voice actor though.

Eh, well...er...uh...

In my defense, I haven't kept up with the game at all, and I was operating under the assumption that only Mortal Kombat games had story modes.

But so far as I'm concerned, if Chie sounds different, and if the main dude isn't Charlie Tunoku, it ain't canon.

#28 Posted by Redhotchilimist (197 posts) -

That's a shame, I really like her voice in P4. Can't stand her japanese one. I hope the new actress can do a decent impression.

#29 Posted by eroticfishcake (7782 posts) -

B-b-but I loved Chie in the English dub! In fact, P4 was actually the first game whose dub I really enjoyed overall. Oh well, I dunno who this lady is but I'll give her a pass for now. At least Troy Baker is still voicing Kanji. I love that guy (the character and the VA that is.)

Oh man. Whose voices did they change? Some of those characters became very memorable but I haven't picked up the new BlazBlue yet. The answer could bum me out :p
#32 Posted by AlisterCat (5482 posts) -

I will be upset if the new lines in Persona 4 The Golden are done by this new voice actress and not in line with the rest of the game.

We don't know that yet, do we? As far as I know, the only English voice actor who's been confirmed is Karen Strassman, who said she's going to be reprising her role as Aigis and Nanako Dojima in Persona 4 Arena.

"Upset" wouldn't even be the half of it as far as I'm concerned.

While we don't know yet... but c'mon. It's Troy Baker! He's like Nolan North and Yuri Lowenthal combined! (in terms of prevalence)

I think if he can show up to do his Kanji voice in RE6, he can show up for this.

i think i've heard the voice of the goddess in every anime out of every female anime character ever then
#40 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19308 posts) -

Sure but I'm going to maintain the level of cynicism I had in this thread:

They're "trying their best". Next thing you know, everyone's voiced by someone different except for Kanji.

Which, I guess, means I'm certain Troy Baker will be voicing Kanji again. Hopefully.

I felt this way initially, but I came around. She just sounds like Chie now. Ah, Chie...

Now, Yukiko's voice I am not a huge fan of.

Actually, the home version is supposed to have a full story mode written by Atlus and is considered a canon sequel.

@FluxWaveZ: I'd probably be more upset if they ditched Kanji, yeah. His was the best! Or Teddie. That voice could have very easily turned out to be super irritating(see: japanese teddie)

I don't really have much of an opinion on Yukiko's VA either way. Its fine, if a little bland(which totally fits the character in my book!)
 
Naoto's the only real weak link in the P4 cast, imo, in terms of VA. The English version immediately gives away the big plot twist.
