Shenmue 3 Update: English Voice Report
Happy Thursday Fellow Beast and Human gamers all, we are here with Shemue 3 updates. I am a backer of this Kickstarter since it was first announced which seems like a decade ago, but please devs take your time and make something good. Last night I was emailed an update on the English voice actors for the new game.
Shemue 3 Voice Cast
As of right now Shenmue 3 is at the 70-80% marker which they assure us that they are keeping to the traditions to having massive voice lines. If you have played the series you should be aware that Shenmue is a live world which the Yakuza series took note from. It would be so cool if the worlds were to collide as a crossover, but that is just my fandom talking. Either way, let’s check out the cast.
“Hey! It’s Corey Marshall! Without Corey, our English speaking Ryo just would not come to life. Corey was set to play Ryo when the project started back in 2015. It did take a quite a while to get into the studio and start recording the English voices, but Corey was full on ready to give a great performance, so expect the best!”
“Playing our heroine in Shenmue III is Brianna Knickerbocker! Yu-san selected from a number of candidates through audio auditions only, and Brianna stunned with her great performance reel. Finally meeting at the studio, she stunned us again with her beauty. Brianna has acted in a dizzying array of games and animated features, so we will all be looking forward to her portrayal of Shenhua!”
Giving them all kudos on their dedication and work, but I know my buddy Ai_Chanbot is anticipating this game as much as everyone else is.
Also they are making it a Family thing by Corey having his daughter Katana at her first voice acting gig.
That is it for now it is cool seeing the behind the scenes work and with that percentage being so high I hope we get a chance to see gameplay in the coming months. What are you most excited about when returning to the Shenmue storyline? – Beast Out –
