E3 2011: Asura's Wrath Trailer
His name is Liam O'brien, he played War in Darksiders too. No surprise he's done a lot of anime work same as Steve Blum, he's really good at being the "emotionally broken" hero/anti hero, does a lot of sighing and moaning lol.
Sounds like the same dude who voiced Nier.
@Abyssfull: I'm almost positive that's DC Douglas....I can definitely hear him in there. It was that emphasized after-breath (pretty sure that's even an actual term, but it's the closest way I could think to describe it) after every last word of every line that had me assume it was Downes. So used to hearing D.C Douglas with his deeper Wesker voice that it was difficult to imagine him with any other style of voice.
Hey, lovely; a japanese version of Soul Reaver; a plain swap of mythology from western to eastern, and you've got yourself a brand new title.
To be fair; it does look over the top crazy; and I really, really enjoy all the rage steaming from the main character. Too often do we get a "cool" stereotypical protagonist whose emotions all stem from the same palette of a goody-two-shoes with an attitude thrown in, just because.
Now, this guy... He's fucking pissed! And rather than say, the collected, calculated brutality of Kratos, he really does seem mentally unstable in his agression. Me likes. Though it seems japanese voice-overs is a must.
Oh my god, this looks so cool! I can see the Roger Zelazny influence, big time! Great science fiction/fantasy writer, wrote lots of stories about godlings who rise from banishment or even death to shake the self-satisfied angels from the heavens. Anybody who likes sci-fi/fantasy, take a look at LORD OF LIGHT or the Amber series.
