So more confirmation of the remaining 9 DLC characters, and more.

@Marakutanay Damnit I know that Merkava is supposed to be the most tragic character in UNIB but why does he look so cute in chibi form?

Now when will we get to hear the other voices? Mika's was and from the sound of it she's Cassandra Lee Morris and if their really will be reprisals than Stephanie Sheh will be Mai, but I really want to hear Yuzuhira's dub. I hope that Cherami Leigh plays her.

We finally have our first footage of Mika's dub! Who do you think it is? I'm guessing Cassandra Lee Morris myself.

And like that, Team RWBY finally have pages on this website! Awesome!

Now how bout we get the actual series on BTVA, huh?

@VGAfanatic You had to go there didn't you?

@VGAfanatic Unlikely to happen.

@VGAfanatic One can dream, but it's highly unlikely.

Greg Chun is Carmine? Really? I really only know his voice from FE so that's a surprise. Interested to see how he does in the role, going by the trailer he sounds not too bad.

As for the rest of the UNIEL cast, Erica is my favourite. After her Lianna in Warriors I was hoping she'd get the role of Orie.

I was a bit sceptical on Linne's voice at first, it felt a little too tomboyish for my liking. But I'm sure her voice will grow on me after I play the game. I've not really looked at it much, want to be surprised when I play it - just got to wait until June 22nd.

I'm also interested to see how Valarie Arem will sound as Naoto, since they re-used her Arena VA's battle lines. But we'll have to wait for that haha.
said at 6:58 PM on Wed Jun 6 2018
@SolVA I think everyone was as surprised as you were. I never saw it coming and learning it was him honestly made my jaw drop to the floor.

As for Linne, while the voice is tomboyish I honestly think it's a perfect fit. Linne really isn't all that girly, she honestly just wants to die at this point. She's been alive for eons and is honestly just your average 'old mentor' trope in the body of a young girl. Thus why Sarah fits her to a T IMO.

Valarie sounds great as Naoto thus far, although a part of me does wish they had gotten Mary Elizabeth Mcglynn back.
said at 5:18 AM on Thu Jun 7 2018
@Soul-dragon It'll be nice to see him in a different kind of role, one that's not serious or formal like all the FE ones.

Although it's probably irrelevant, I did do a fandub of UNIEL and the girl I had voicing Linne gave her a tomboyish voice...and she kinda sounds like Sarah, so I guess my comment was kinda stupid, seeing how I clearly went for what this English dub did. But after watching some game play I am sold on her voice and they made a good choice with Sarah!

I've only ever watched small clips of the animation, but Mary would have been the ideal choice for Naoto from the start, since her voice is so deep she could have easily disguised Naoto's voice, if they chose to have it fully disguised.
I think Valerie would have been a better Margaret, since her voice kinda sounds like Michelle Ann Dunphy's Margaret, and then Mary maybe could have been Naoto since she was already in the cast - but that's a discussion for another topic I guess haha.

Karen Strassman's Aigis is the only Persona voice that I'm not so sure of. It sounded a little off in one of the trailers.

I know there's been some rumors going on, but I don't think that Tara Platt and Liam O'Brien would be able to reprise Mitsuru and Akihiko.

If they don't come back, I'd imagine they'd use... I guess they could use Carrie Keranen and Mick Wingert but I could be wrong.
said at 12:08 PM on Wed Jun 6 2018
@[SD] LordAkira What rumors? I didn't ear any and can't find it online :| I'll really like the original VA to come back for both Mitsu and Aki.

@Soul-dragon Liam O'Brien has lately only been doing union VO. I think the reason why he was in Sonic Forces is because Studiopolis is in charge of the Sonic voice casts. This is probably why Laura and Travis are still committed to their roles as Blaze and Knuckles respectively, they only get new non-union roles whenever Studiopolis is involved. I saw this information on TV Tropes and I think O'Brien is following WillingBailey's footsteps.

@Failboy The one about the characters that were datamined from the Switch version's demo. I'm not going to tell you who's left, that's up for you to do. Expect the rumor to become true when they announce the final nine characters at EVO.

Character packs #2 and 3 get released June 19 which is before the EVO 2018 cutoff date (1st Friday in July) for DLC characters. Packs 4, 5, and 6 will all be released after EVO 2018. It's all interesting to me.

@[SD] LordAkira Tara Platt did appeared in Rooster Teeth's RWBY Volume 4 and 5, I'm pretty sure she could probably come back for Volume 6. I'm pretty sure they ask Rooster Teeth to get Tara Platt to record some lines at Rooster Teeth since RWBY is at Rooster Teeth.
said at 7:56 AM on Thu Jun 7 2018
@[SD] LordAkira Oh I know about the leaks, I thought you were saying that they won't be taking back they're roles for X reason. But with today's announcement of the localisation of P3D i'm pretty sure they'll voice the bbtag character as well.
said at 9:38 AM on Thu Jun 7 2018
@[SD] LordAkira Think again. Both are back for the new Persona 3 game!

Well this is a very nice cast indeed.

We have RWBY getting some recognition which means more for some of Rooster Teeth's members to do, pretty much nearly everyone from Persona back (besides Baker obviously), the Undernight cast looks solid and BlazBlue is... well BlazBlue (asides Bailey thus we have Tipton now in her first game of the series).

Had to come here to confirm Erin Fitzgerald back as Chie. What little I heard of Chie sounded very different. And that statement she made about a year ago (won't do anymore non-union roles, even reprisals) had me thinking she had been recast in this.

That would be sad if she was. Persona 4 bleeding so many cast members over the years that even the replacements get replaced.
said at 11:33 PM on Tue Jun 5 2018
@NCZ Yep. We've had two Kanjis, two Rises, three Naotos, two Teddies. Last thing we need is three Chies.

Honestly, slightly different topic, this is part of the reason I'm glad they got the Persona 5 anime and spin-offs planned so early. Several of those VAs have been getting more and more western projects and I could see them possibly disappearing from the Japanese scene in near future (or atleast going union only).

Gotta admit I'm very impressed with the English Voice cast for this, so much so that I'm pretty excited for this!

Maybe it has to do with the direction or not voicing the character for a while, but Yuri Lowenthal sounded a little different when it came to Yosuke.

said at 1:21 PM on Fri Jun 1 2018
Actually, listening to it closer, I feel most of the cast sounds a bit off.
said at 2:00 PM on Fri Jun 1 2018
@Shaun Ince Do you mean the Persona cast? Because if so than I must say that a part of me agrees.
Shaun Ince
said at 2:20 PM on Fri Jun 1 2018
@Soul-dragon Yes.
said at 3:30 PM on Fri Jun 1 2018
@Shaun Ince Yeah I felt the same way TBH. Maybe it's the direction they were given because everyone else sounds great (expect Carmine).
said at 10:35 PM on Fri Jun 1 2018
@Shaun Ince Yeah, he seems to be voicing Yosuke much more pitchy these days. It's really strange.
said at 6:00 PM on Sat Jun 2 2018
@Shaun Ince I feel the same way. I couldn't help but feel like everybody doesn't sound as cool as they from the Persona Arena and Blazblue games.
I kinda get the feeling it was a rushed job for whatever reason.
I can't speak for the RWBY stuff cause I haven't seen it and the Undernight characters sound good as far as I can tell.
All this being said I'm still happy almost everybody came back. Adding another Aigis role to Strassman's list puts a smile on my face everytime. :)

@Fer3x3 The game itself was not developed by the main team at ArcSystems Works. Rather it was the B team that worked on this game. Having experienced the game myself, it is a bit unpolished in places. I think trying to get the game out so it can make it's debut at the EVO Fighting Championship might also be the reason why the game feels, rushed so to speak.

I know people are glad that the game has RWBY characters and that they got the English actors to reprise their roles for the BlazBlue characters, but that's only one part of the experience. When the other half doesn't feel complete, it shows.

I'm guess I'm one of the few people that wasn't quite sold on this game compared to some others.
said at 2:07 AM on Sun Jun 3 2018
@Shaun Ince Still easily beats Marvel Vs C(r)apcom: Infinite any day.
said at 8:13 AM on Sun Jun 3 2018
@Fer3x3 Really? I think the Blazblue characters sound great! (Es, Jin and Hazama especially). As for Strassman her reprising Aigis is always good to see yes, and hopefully this confirms her return for Dancing Moon Night.
@RetroPokeFan You can say that again. Especially when you consider that they let everyone reprise their roles.
said at 9:48 AM on Sun Jun 3 2018

*Stares at Capcom and Marvel for replacing Laura Bailey as Chun-Li for one of the dumbest reasons imaginable*
said at 11:11 AM on Sun Jun 3 2018
@ScraftyIsTheBest Indeed. Now we wait until Labrys is revealed so that Cindy Robinson can voice both her and Makoto with a very similar register for the ultimate burn.

Interesting that they decided to use both CoT and PCB for the dubbing. PCB most likely handle the Persona people and CoT everyone else but I wonder why they decided to do it? Because PCB could use Amanda and Valerie while maybe CoT couldn't?

Oh, forget it. This is good enough. XD

This is weirdly anticlimactic.

Haha, but if people are happy, then I'm happy.

@NCZ I'm just absolutely elated that RWBY's popular enough in Japan for this kind of thing to happen.

Can't wait to see what's in store in the future for it!
said at 9:38 PM on Fri Jun 1 2018
@NCZ Twas merely a phase of momentary possession.
said at 7:54 AM on Sat Jun 2 2018
@AleVesper Really? When RWBY was first announced to be a part of this game many fans got upset that it wasn't getting a stand alone fighter.
Either way it makes me happy to see as well. I don't think anyone at Rooster Teeth would've imagined that it would get big enough for something like this so I can only imagine the thoughts going through their heads!
said at 1:09 PM on Sun Jun 3 2018
@Soul-dragon If only Monty was alive to see this. I'm sure he'd be the happiest man on the planet to see his creation prosper like this.
