    While it shouldn't be a surprise given their new VAs in Arena, the entirety of Persona 4 Golden will also feature new VAs for these two characters.  All their lines were rerecorded to maintain consistency given there will be about 40% additional lines in Golden over the vanilla version.
     
    Atlus USA did mention that: “That said, it’s important fans don’t base their impressions on the [Persona 4: Arena] tutorial video.”
     
    This does seem to mean "Aha is this our chance?" will be a thing of the past.

    Jabbari right, the actors probably improve after we first heard them so I'm willing to accept the new voices for Teddie and Chie.

    In all seriousness it's not a big deal though I would prefer if Chie's original VA returned even though a lot of people thought it sounded a little older then it should have. I didn't get that impression but that's beside the point.

    Teddie is the biggest loss. I suspect Erin will do a fine job as Chie, but Teddie's new VA sounds generically anime bullshit

    He sounds like a VA from the 90s more than anything else.  Those were dark times.

    Well, that kills just about any hype I had for the game. The Teddie in the arena video sounded like a cheap imitation without any of the charm.

    mannnn.....I share the same sentiment with the rest, its a bummer, but I can live without Chie. Teddie, though? This makes me less willing to get the game. The new guy sounds insufferable in the videos they've shown so far.

    No one should be surprised by this. After P4 Arena and the lack of Teddie and Chie this should have been expected. It's still disappointing.

    Somewhat unrelated but what's the word on the soundtrack? I know that they're adding some new tracks but getting some of the remixed versions of the original tracks would be pretty fucking dapper if I say so myself.

    Wait, why is Teddie getting a different voice? Is Dave Wittenberg too busy with Naruto or whatever to record some new lines?

    This sucks. Even though Chie sounded like a middle aged woman at times, she grew on me as one of my favorite characters, and her "voice" reminds me of that fact. Yeah kind of bummed at this news. It always sucks to go back and re-record main characters that have a lot of lines and have special performances that you remember from the original game. But here is hoping that the new peeps bring their thunder stick to the performance and don't ruin a good thing. Though if anyone can recreate the magic, it's probably Atlus.

    Have they said at all if they are going to do any voice-over stuff for the social links as part of this revamped and new dialog that they are adding to Golden?

    they should just put those remixes in the game.

    IIRC, her VA usually doesn't usually do video games or anime, so her role in P4 was a right time right place kind of thing in the first place.

    Oh wow, how disappointing. I won't pass judgement 'till I play the game because the new VAs might be great, but this does dampen my hype a bit.

    Wow. That's a weird choice, but I understand why they did it.

    I still don't get why the guy who played Teddie isn't on board. Maybe he's to big now or something.

    @Animasta: Yeah a simple ability to switch between the original and remix in the options would be really nice. I doubt it would happen but a man can dream. The soundtrack for that game is one of my favourites ever.

    Of all the voice actors to not come back, Chie.... :(

    Teddie... well, you can just go ahead and make him silent. Just cut out the sound files and let the error message appear whenever he has a line.

    not happy about the change in Chie's VA, and only a little sad about Teddie's VA being different. I'll have hope that they will be better then what they were in the P4A tutorial video, but something tells me that I'll probably be moving on to Kanji or Naoto for my party members.

    Well, yeah, I've probably said this before. Chies voice kinda grew on me, her VA wasn't spotless, but there was a personality in the voice and delivery that I kinda connect the character with now. I'm sure that the new VA will do a good job, it's just too bad that the old VA is kinda etched into my mind as the real Chie.

    And about Teddie... Damn... From what I've heard I feel like I'm gonna mute everytime he says a line. Hopefully... It'll be ok. Atleast not making your ears bleed that is.

    Remember how you could switch up dungeon music in The Answer for P3 FES?  So there is some precedent out there.

    Well in P3P if you played the male protagonist it'll play the original soundtrack whereas playing a female character played the new tracks so it's not a surprise if they do give the option this time around. I don't want to be too optimistic though. No real biggie really since I'm happy enough the soundtracks I've got...not to mention the art books and drama CDs that I don't even understand without a script. BUT WHATEVER MORE PERSONA THE BETTER.

    I am actually kind of interested in hearing a new take on Chie. I didn't dislike her voice but I wasn't super happy with it either.

    I was already there ... I can live with Chie's fate - and the new VA is pretty good, too. But ... now Teddie will be replaced as well?

    Oh, the anger! :/

    On the other hand: Jesus! 40% more voiced content? Yay!
