So...a lot of older fans have branded this as the worst game in the franchise. And honestly? I disagree. Granted, it does get a lot of love and it does take up a majority of the roster for Warriors, but it was pretty good all things considered. The gameplay was both fun and challenging and while it had some bad characters (Camillia), it had tons of great ones that I adored as well (Nina, Soleil, Oboro, Leo, Keaton, Azura and so on). And I honestly liked the marriage system. It was kind of fun to play matchmaker and it was pretty cool to see how characters who would've probably never spoken in the main game interacted. However, I really hope that the Switch game will be the best version yet, not because I disliked Fates, but because I'd like to have a new experience with new great characters (and not boring shallow ones who only exist for fan service reasons).

@Soul-dragon I did not know Fans considered this the worst game not much of a fire eblem expert but I always assumed that because KZS directed this i thought instant game classic because that`s her resume in being involved in video games.

@Soul-dragon

There is a wide range of opinions out there but something like that is nowhere near consensus. The story is not that great and it spreads itself thin with some of the characters but few people would disagree that from a pure gameplay perspective Conquest is one of the best.

There's really no game anyone considers outright bad by consensus. Maybe original version of Gaiden or Shadow Dragon DS but that's it really. FE is very consistent. The whole "new games suck uggh" section of any fanbase is kind of a boogeyman in general but I wouldn't really get too hung up on that.

@Abdullab

Some people do but again, there's no consensus. You can really say that about most series. Times where there's a general consensus on which one is the worst are pretty rare.

Like people like to squabble about what the worst Zelda game is but I always considered that a pointless argument. The worst Zelda games are still completely worth playing for the most part, and leagues better than the majority of "bad" games. I'm not crazy for Phantom Hourglass but I wouldn't say it's a bad game. There are a lot of things to enjoy about it. I just don't think that mentality is really the healthiest way to look at it. Having preferences or personal tastes is a-okay but I can probably name on one hand the number of respectable series I've played that have a legitimately bad game among them. The game community does honestly have kind of a problem with treating opinions as hyperbolic or statements of fact so I think it's careful to be mindful of that and remember to express your thoughts or think of others's imply as their own opinion, coming from their perspective of where their personal tastes and preferences lie. Anyway I have to go file a police report because MVC Infinite burned my house down.

I know this is unrelated to Fire Emblem, but out of curiosity, when you mentioned the worst Zelda games, are you by any chance pointing to The Faces of Evil? Or do not consider that to be actual Zelda game?

I just finished Heirs of Fate...

And yeah it's absolutely wonderful IMO. I'd definitely recommend playing it. I honestly think my favourite Matt Mercer role is Shigure now, because he just brought so much depth to the role with the way he sung "lost in thoughts all alone" and with the specific voice clips he recorded for HOF as well.

Both of the Kanas and Anankos were also pretty well voiced I'd say.
NCZ (Admin)
said at 6:45 PM on Thu Mar 9 2017
@HylianBelmont

Before I said that Shigure was my favourite of his FE roles, but now I think, especially after hearing that singing, Shigure might just be my favourite of Matt's roles full stop.

Also I have to say that while I had my concerns about Ryoma having the same voice as Chrom, I really warmed up to it once I started going through Birthright. Great stuff, and they ended up being more distinct than I thought.

Not sure if this has been said already(and if it hasn't, I'm not sure how), but Anankos' Human form and Dragon form have separate voices, and I think they should be counted as separate characters here. As for who voices them, Human Anankos' voice clips are just altered versions of Cam Clarke's Corrin voice, and Dragon form sounds like Imari Williams, though some people say it sounds like Travis Willingham.
HylianBelmont
said at 3:20 PM on Sun Feb 5 2017
@SirJolteon I actually heard Dragon!Anankos's voice again yesterday in the Heirs of Fate DLC, and I'm still convinced it's Travis honestly. The way he says "contemptible vermin..." reminds me so much of Garon's voice.

Coming back to this cast list again, I NEVER would have guessed some of these actors!!! Roger Rose as Takumi? Marisha Ray as Mikoto and Oboro?! Karen Strassman as Mozu and Hana? Matthew Mercer as Azama? Ben Diskin as Saizo? Antony Del Rio as Silas? Elizabeth Daily as Hinoka (and being in this game in general)?!! I'm only on Chapter 10 of Birthright too (as of this writing).

@Shaun Ince Definitely KZS's doing. I didnt expect Jessica DiCicco in Drr x2 & FSN UBW2014, but those dubs were at least union projects. Whereas technicly her working on this game could be against union laws (not judging, just sayin).

I know her "married name" would be Elizabeth Salomon, but I do wonder how specific actors feel about these things. I do recall EG was in a SAG-AFTRA promotional video, too, lol. VA's are all people & have broad ranges of opinions on this, I suppose. But everyone, union or not, agrees that #PerformanceMatters.

@HylianBelmont I'd have thought they'd either use the original Japanese or make their own dub.

Actually, the Korean version seems to be based on BOTH the Japanese and Western versions, while I can't read Korean text, apparently the game titles are translated from the original Japanese, but they use some of the Western terminology (i.e. "Azura" and "Anankos").

Anyway! That gives us extra motivation to figure out that last English VA, because he's who everyone outside of Japan will be hearing!
HylianBelmont

@technickal Oh yeah I get you. I suppose the names and voice lines will definitely be the same. but I'm not quite sure if it's based on the English translation aside from that. It will be interesting to find out however!

Wonder how Kris got some of these actors. Maybe the usually Union-only actors were only willing to do this due to how little voice work is actually required for their characters?
huzaifa_ahmed
said at 12:25 AM on Sun Oct 23 2016
@Unknownsage13 If you're talking about EG Daily (I'm assuming), it's probably because of Kris Zimmerman's involvement as well as being generally free ATM. I think a lot more VA's are financial core than are in anime & game dubs. I'm not sure exactly the trend, but some people just dont think these jobs pay well enough, union stuff aside. Anime's worse, but I think a lot of VA's from this game might be financial core. I wont name any names from here specificly, but in general Cam Clarke occasionally takes non-union dub jobs.

Frankly, I'm confused as to why (going by their extensive resumes) some of these guys have mansions (EG Daily in interviews), but would possibly break union law for a couple thousand bucks. But hey, we get to hear them in a non-super-mainstream production. Here's hoping the next dub is union, it totally is worth it!

Julianne Alexander submitted her involvement in Fates to IMDB but didn't specify her characters. By looking at her other work (mostly short/independent films) and listening to her voice it was determined that Felicia/Setsuna were likely her characters.

@MHUltimate2013DW Sometimes I remember the pain he put me through in all the chapters you fought against him in Conquest and I cry. But yeah I didn't really hate him myself, at least towards the end of Conquest anyway...

and, Roger Rose's performance as him was also pretty damn good. Easily one of my favourite voices in the game.

@NCZ Antony Del Rio was not credited to this despite the fact he played Silas and Percy. And, there are some who have aliases that weren't known. You did mention that Julianne Alexander would potentially cast both Felicia and Setsuna, which is hardly to distinguish based on short videos on said actress's official website: http://www.juliannealexander.com/

I don't want to get off topic, but do you know where the recording studio for DCUO took place? If you know, how come Jen Brown is playing as Harley Quinn. I believe there are some connections that may be her.

He's credited under a pseudonym because he's a member of SAG-AFTRA working on a project that probably isn't. DCUO is done in Austin, Texas which is where RWBY is recorded and where Jen Brown lives. On top of that she doesn't have to worry about SAG-AFTRA because Texas is a right-to-work state with no acting unions, unlike California. It's not her, open-and-shut.

@Nightmare Crusher I've seen the first 6 chapters and a few supports here and there (like Soleil's) and I think the overall quality of the localisation is good IMO.

I'm not saying it's perfect but at the same time some of the criticism I've seen from places like Torrential Downpour is really overblown and exaggerated and any valid point made in their arguments are overshadowed by all of the "Look guys! This character that was written as over-the-top even in the JP version is saying something silly in the ENG version! this translation is GARBAGE because of it!"

@Nightmare Crusher I think the Beruka and Saizo support was a reference to a support conversation Jaffar had with someone in FE7 I believe?

But yeah while I did find it a tad funny I do agree that it was pretty pointless, especially when you consider that the rest of their supports are pretty much the same as they were in the original.

@Nightmare Crusher

I have mixed thoughts on that one in particular.

Yeah, I get that it loses a bit of backstory for those characters (unless they go into it somewhere else? sooo much dialogue). Even if it is a bit of a cheap shot though, I like the connotations behind the localization. Humourous illustration of how they're two silent assassins on totally different sides, but at the end of the day, they're not that different after all. Just expressed through different means, but it means losing a bit extra nuance and background.

I will say though, holy CRAP that fanslation is bad. It just goes to show the downfalls of a literal translation. Nobody talks like that. (Plus some of the lines aren't even grammatically correct either.)

There's another comparison going around there between the localization and the fanslation, and it's more of the same. It's just so clunky and melodramatic that it's a chore to read and doesn't have any of the charm you'd expect from a colourful strategy RPG. Yeesh.

In an ideal scenario then they could have taken that and translated it in a way that seems more punchy but eh, maybe that just wasn't possible. I'm not really a translator either but I can imagine that there's only so much you can work with from the material.
Nightmare Crusher
said at 4:39 PM on Fri Mar 11 2016
@NCZ I'm not endorsing the fan translation per say. It's more to illustrate the point that NOA straight up erased dialogue.

Like I said, making something more interesting to read: good. Giving up completely and just gutting the whole thing: not good.

@Nightmare Crusher
I'm with you there. I've actually been fine and dandy with most of the censorship controversies surrounding Nintendo for their past few major releases, but this support conversation just makes me angry. I can understand changing certain things, Nintendo does have a family friendly image to upkeep, but how dare they alter backstory just for some sort of joke. I don't care if it was just a little bit of backstory or whatever, this is something you just don't do.

Otherwise I haven't really had too many problems with the translation. Maybe one or two other minor things really.
LeDom
said at 7:04 AM on Sun Mar 13 2016
@HylianBelmont I do think that was dumb, but I also firmly believe people are overreacting and acting as if it ruins the entire game.

It doesn't even ruin the Saizo x Beruka support since the rest is practically unchanged and the original conversation barely included anything the player wouldn't know at this point.

The ''death of a thousand cuts'' argument I've seen around is cringy in particular. That would imply that everything else they did (from changing names to making a generic My Castle line funnier) is on the same level as ellipses.

And while we're on the topic of Torrential Downpour...this movement is garbage. At their best, they're just laughable in how they nitpick every little change in dialogue. At their worst, they're harassing and character assassinating Treehouse employees. Naturally, they're completely oblivious (or likely don't care) that their immaturity and entitlement is hurting people.
HylianBelmont
said at 8:51 AM on Sun Mar 13 2016
@LeDom I pretty much agree with you 100% on Torrential Downpour.

I mean I'm not one to shy away from other viewpoints, but as soon as I saw someone say that Treehouse inserted a "radical feminist" agenda by having Nyx say "you shouldn't be rude about a woman's body!" I don't think I'll listen to any issue they have with the game's translation ever again.
LeDom
said at 9:45 AM on Sun Mar 13 2016
@HylianBelmont

Even more ridiculous is how said poster included the japanese dialogue...and it was virtually the same thing.

There have also been claims that Effie and Hisame got completely rewritten when the only changes were ''My Room'' lines.

The internet rage machine lied to me; I expected loads of pickle jokes and instead I got a boring no-nonsense Hisame who ocassionally mentions pickles :(

SNaG

@Katsu Didn't think of that. I don't have an amiibo, but I surmised they needed some new dialogue for Ike to use in conversations, since Lucina's and Robins are recycled from Awakening and they got Yuri to record stuff for Marth in that vein.

@GamingFanatic If Antony Del Rio was non-union then he would have been MORE likely to be credited.

I swear that Hinoka and Selkie are played by EG Daily, but because of the whole alias thing, there's no way to know for sure.

I wasn't 100% sure of Cam Clarke as Corrin prior to his release in Smash Bros., but his versatility was a lot better than I gave credit for, and I'd say it's the same with Ms. Daily, considering her roles of Mockingbird and Spider-Woman.

Until proven otherwise, I'm going to believe it's her. I hope we can do more research to call it official, though.
NCZ (Admin)
said at 11:36 AM on Fri Feb 26 2016
@VGAfanatic TBH I've heard people say that but for various reasons it's not a theory that leaps out and grabs me by the throat immediately.

If there can be some good evidence to support it (e.g. a character who's a 1:1 match with identical inflections, voice, acting style, speech patterns, or if an alias can be connected) then that'd be something but at the moment the idea of her being involved is speculation, and she doesn't have the same precedent of doing dub work on non-union and/or Japanese games with Kris Zimmerman that actors like Paul Eiding or Stephanie Lemelin or Paula Tiso* do.

*To be honest I'm not entirely certain if she's in this so that should be taken with a grain of salt, but she's pretty much one of the most reasonable names out there for Camilla and Orochi.

@LeDom Yuri Lowenthal already has three characters, which seems to be the maximum, with Corrin, Marth and Kiragi. I suppose someone could try tweeting him, but I really don't see him saying anything different.
NCZ (Admin)

@LeDom Nah, I don't think he's Niles. The voice is too deep to be him. Niles's VA is the same as Hisame who is also certainly not Lowenthal, and he's already matched up to 3 characters. For various reasons it seems triple-casting is the max since no VA plays more than 3.

In any case he's recognisable enough that pinning him to those three is pretty easy.

@llee1000 I think that Diskin voices Saizo, Jakob and Hayato. Mercer definitely Asama and shigure. Kaiji Tang is also Ignis and Shinonome. I think Forrest and Leo are Mittleman and Izana is for sure Liam O'Brien. Beruka, Elise and Sophie are Stephanie Sheh. Hana and Anna are Strassman.

That's all I got for now.

Meanwhile Kerri Kane was kind enough to actually listen to MP10 clips , and confirmed it wasn't her once again ; The same happened with Mario Tennis Ultra Smash.

Even if it was very obvious since those clips are from Super Mario 3D World and Mario Kart 8 (games not involving Kerri Kane as Rosalina) respectively , Kerri actually looked it up and confirmed it , which actually was helpful and nice on her part .

I'll be honest, while it is great that they're making way for less experienced/newer voice actors, a bit of a shame that many guys we thought would be in this game (Bryce, Johnny, Vic, Christine, Kira, Cristina, Cherami, the Funi VAs that were in Xenoblade X like Caitlin, Josh and Alexis) wouldn't end up in this game (unless they went uncredited or are one of the pseudonyms.

@PsychBoy19 Note that there is still a good chance that many of the voice actors you mentioned still voice some characters in the game. It's very likely that the official English credits list didn't list everyone and left out several voice actors uncredited due to union issues. Remember that there are actually a lot of characters in this game and there is a chance someone like JYB or Christine Marie Cabanos may voice someone in this game.

Okay, Nintendo Everything website posted the full list of English voice actors in this game:

http://nintendoeverything.com/full-lineup-of-english-voice-actors-in-fire-emblem-fates/

HOWEVER, unlike Fire Emblem Awakening, the credits did not tie the voice actors to the particular character, making it much harder to figure out who voices who. Not only that, many of the names listed looks like pseudonyms were used in this game (S.L. Draven looks like a pseudonym name being used).

That being said, I'm glad Max Mittelman is voicing someone in this game (I'm definitely sure he was voicing Silas IIRC).

@NCZ I think the best course of action right is to wait for the time of the release date and once NDAs allow it (I'm sure NDAs are REALLY strict about this one here), the voice actors will reveal who voices who in the game. I've seen many of the dub cast reveals for many niche jRPGs where the English voice cast isn't credited yet the cast is revealed by the voice actors themselves (Disgaea 5 being an example). It's possible that the Fates English cast credits only list the voice actors who have done union work in the past (even for the fi-core voice actors like D.C. Douglas) while leaving the voice actors who are non-union uncredited.
NCZ (Admin)
said at 10:29 PM on Fri Feb 12 2016
@Dark Paladin X That's part of the plan, yeah.

I did some google-fu on the various names and only about two seemed to be new VAs I was unfamiliar with (Sarah Blandy and Angela Volpes). They've both acknowledged the game on their websites/social media but remained numb (the former specifically mentioning a "Nintendo game under NDA"). So they'll have to wait until then to make the announcement naturally.

"It's possible that the Fates English cast credits only list the voice actors who have done union work in the past (even for the fi-core voice actors like D.C. Douglas) while leaving the voice actors who are non-union uncredited."

Think you have this backwards. If it's a non-union production non-union actors don't get in trouble. Union actors work on it at their own risk.
LeDom

@Dark Paladin X That's a LOT of names I've never seen, hopefully they are on social media and will confirm who they voice once the game is released.

I've seen people go ''well of course they casted a bunch of noobs to save money'', which is a really ****ty thing to say. They auditionned and got the part fair and square. Besides, I think it's likely that they were paid the same as the likes of Laura Bailey and Travis Willingham.

@LeDom While I welcome new blood, and I think the English voice acting is nowhere near as bad as others say and is still serviceable, I think the departure from Cup of Tea, the "block of names" and the general drop in quality make it clear that this game's dub was on a lower budget than the likes of Awakening and Xenoblade X. The reasons for this could vary.

Nintendo's been good at including credits for their non-union dubs so I'm pretty sure this would be the same.

NCZ (Admin)

@Cinnamoroll0622 Oh, I see.

Well with the main cast, there's a mixture of some well-established VAs (Nakamura, Konishi, Sawashiro, Miyano, Kaji, Ohara, Otsuka), and some newer talent who've been on the rise in recent years (Shimazaki, Sato, Nazuka, Kanemoto, Lynn).

The supporting cast is mostly newer and younger voice actors, yeah.

But there are some well-known names in there. Daisuke Ono, Takehito Koyasu, Rokuro Naya, Yoshimasa Hosoya, Junichi Suwabe, are all pretty famous.

Personally I like giving fresh VAs an opportunity and it's nice seeing some really well-known, established voices in the series for the first time. And there's a few VAs who were in Awakening as well (Hosoya, Sawashiro, Koyasu, Kenji Hamada, Mitsuhiro Ichiki, Daisuke Ono) in some roles that are different than what they did last game.

For the English version, I haven't checked out a ton of videos. I recognized a couple voices but otherwise, there are a lot that are fairly new to me, which I appreciate. I'm glad to hear fresh voices in non-union dubs since their cast lists have a tendency to be kinda stagnant. It's impressive this time since Awakening already felt like it was drying up most of the talent pool, so for them to manage a healthy amount of new names is cool.

Surprisingly, I can recognize around 24 of the Japanese voice actors. ...Including that of Gunter as he was a veteran with 45 years of experience. XD

Also Kiragi and Azama - their voice actors might seem a little unknown, but they've both been in the industry for over 10 years now. Furushima (Kiragi) for 14, Hamada (Azama) for 18. ...I know Furushima from Suikoden Tierkreis - he played one of the main villains.

Out of the English ones, I know around 16. Which is probably because the dub reuses so many voices, unlike the original. ...I'm just kind of happy Paul Eiding got on board, considering I've never seen "Perceptor" do Japanese videogame dubs before~

@NCZ Well, Nowi is technically a Manakete lived 1000 years. And also that Aversa is grown woman and we haven't seen Camilla got changed also. But, I think I saw someone from Serenes Forest.net mentioned about they haven't found any character's age in either of the versions.

@King Marth 64 And plus, I did seen the ESBR rating for Fates didn't have it mentioned as Partial Nudity.

And also, I wondered if the Gay/Lesbian Support with Niles and Rhajat removal possibly got changed to Companions just like the Cousins in Awakening since someone mentioned in the Japanese version of Awakening did have the Husband/Wife Tab if a player get Lucina or other Chrom's possible daughters with Owain or Chrom's possible sons with Lissa's/Emmeryn's Morgan.

@King Marth 64 That's a weirdly common trope in Japanese stuff that's always kinda rubbed me the wrong way. Having underage-looking characters in skimpy outfits and then excusing it by saying "oh it's okay, they're 1000 years old". Like Etna from Disgaea or Marie Rose from Dead or Alive. It just bothers me.

Aversa and Camilla being adults and just one out of many female designs mitigates things a bit though I'm not totally happy with their portrayal either (like Camilla's FMV is still in and still... very pandery). Eh. I think there's some room for improvement but yeah, looks like she'll be untouched.

Well, who knows.

For Niles and Rhajat I'm pretty sure their sexuality will be left alone. Nintendo confirmed that there would be same-sex relationships last year and I'd be extremely disappointed in them if they removed it. From what I know the only thing that's being removed is a homophobic plotline in Soleil's story arc.

@King Marth 64 And I did forgot to mentioned that BlazBlue series did have Mokoto and Mu-12 did have those types of stuff in the game and it was rated T for Teen also. (I didn't see any underage girls from BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger and BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extended)

But, I really think Odin's daughter is definitely getting possibly censored if she is definitely underage like Lin.

There's a really good reason though. The singer who performs Azura's song is actually a celebrity and NoA couldn't get the license for her voice.
At least, that's very likely.

@LeDom That would make sense. I forgot that Aqua's song could cause issues.

My first thought is filesize since from what I've seen, this game is a decent bit bigger than Awakening, even with its two cartridges individually. But that could make sense as well, if she's a freelancer and part of the contract is that she retains the rights to her vocals.

said at 8:23 PM on Fri Feb 5 2016
@King Marth 64 Fan names I agree, but I don't personally think there's an issue with people using Japanese names in casual conversation if they personally prefer them.

Sometimes they think the original name sounds better, or occasionally the English version is a mistranslation (e.g. the Dragon Ball dubs were pretty bad about this). I don't think there's a problem as long as people remain accepting of others' opinions/preferences. I mean at the end of the day it's not real. It only becomes a problem if they're obnoxious about it (e.g. consistently referring to "Marusu from Faia Emuburemu Ankoku Ryu to Hikari no Tsurugi" and outright attacking people who call him "Marth").
King Marth 64
said at 9:54 PM on Fri Feb 5 2016
@NCZ Well, I did seen some people do use fan names and some Japanese names on characters and items when Awakening came and then, after the game was released, they just stop using them except with the Robin's Avatar Game Mechanic Name problem which I don't understand about them. But, I really think Fates would do the same like Awakening did also.
NCZ (Admin)
said at 10:17 PM on Fri Feb 5 2016
@King Marth 64 Yeah, once the game's out I'm sure most people will just switch to using official Eng names, for simplicity's sake.

Also I just realized the other downside of no dual audio is that we won't get to experience this.

Honestly, PoR/RD have potential for great voice acting, and I'd love to see a compilation of those 2 games w/ the characters redubbed by people w/ lots of experience, and give at least voice grunts to some characters who didn't even have any voiced lines. If it were me, here's who I'd cast for the new dub:
Ike - Travis Willingham
Micaiah - Cherami Leigh or Christine Marie Cabanos

Is Tikki in this game at all? If so maybe that means CristinaVee is also doing a voice in this one.

If not, I'm gonna guess this is recording for SMTxFE (which makes me assume due to being much younger dub Tikki will sound more like Rin Tohsaka) and CristinaVee will be in that one aswell.

Pretty sure Ryoma is Matthew Mercer and Elise is Stephanie Sheh. No idea for anyone else; I think I might've heard Michelle Ruff in there but I could be wrong.

@Unknownsage13 It's possible considering Male Robin's default voice in Awakening was David Vincent, and he came back to cast him in Smash. However, Female Robin was Michelle Ruff and they cast Lauren Landa instead. Fire Emblem Awakening was already released before Smash so a replacement casting wouldn't be too difficult. Fates isn't out for US just yet and we barely know who the voices are so they could just be different just for Smash.

I think it's also a safe assumption that Yuri Lowenthal, Jason Adkins, David Vincent and Laura Bailey will return as Marth, Ike, Robin and Lucina. Which kinda makes me wonder how Roy's gonna be cast, since I'm safely assuming the three games will get an update for compatibility with his Amiibo.

@Scrappy-Fan92 Laura Bailey has been super busy due to Halo, Gears of War, ect. So anime and Japanese games haven't been a priority. Like Platinum in BlazBlue anime was voiced by Alexis Tipton and Risette in Persona 4 Dancing All Nite was voiced by Ashly Burch.

If she is replaced as Lucina, Alexis is a good pick because she can do a spot-on Laura Bailey match and she was in LA recently for a few other things.
Unknownsage13
said at 3:46 PM on Fri Nov 27 2015
@VGAfanatic Yeah I'm expecting several of the XCX voices.
I looked through and alot of the voices have already been in Fire Emblem. But considering the various actors ranges and the limited amount of spoken dialogue I could see most of them coming back.
As for the ones not in it already.
Keith Silverstein, CristinaVee, Kira Buckland, Mary Elizabeth, Cassandra Lee, Carrie Keranen are all easy bets cuz they appear in almost all LA ensemble projects eventually.
Cherami is LA based now so I'd imagine they'd get her. Considering she was in a Danganronpa and Disgaea, she should have no problem being in this.
As for the two Texas based X cast members, Alexis and Caitlin, they've done several LA projects recently and I could totally see them joining in.

@Unknownsage13 Yeah, my comment was facetious to an extent, but that's pretty much it. Laura's been fairly busy recently and Alexis filled in for her on Blazblue so if it did happen I wouldn't be surprised.

I'm not really putting my bets on anything yet though. In a worst case scenario maybe they can get away with reusing clips from previous games.
Unknownsage13
said at 10:47 PM on Fri Nov 27 2015
@NCZ There's a chance though they might've been able to get her in. This game is nowhere near as dialogue heavy (spoken dialogue that is) as Persona 4 Dancing All Nite. And with anime, I've heard the main issue there is the schedules are too strict. Maybe they got her to come in for a couple days for Lucina. I'd doubt it would take more than a week to do the Lucina recording. CristinaVee said for Riven in LoL she basically did all her recording in a day and that game has probably about the same amount of spoken phrases for characters.

I have a list of voice predictions for for the English Dub in Fire Emblem: Fates

Note: I don't have guesses for all the characters and I am listing this in no particular order

Leo/Leon: Ben Diskin- It sounds like him in the English Trailer, voices younger brother Kiel from Rune Factory 4, and can provide deep voices

Felicia: Alexis Tipton- Dunno, just seems right... plus recently she's been getting more video game roles

Sakura: Either Stephanie Sheh or Cristina Vee- People say it sounds like Cristina and she has a wide variety of characters so it could work but Stephanie voices meek girls as well

Elise: Cassandra Lee Morris- It just really sounds like her in the English Trailer, plus she's done cheery girls like Amber from RF4, and little sister/cousin Suguha Kirigaya/Leafa from Sword Art Online

Cyrus/Silas: Robbie Daymond- He's recently made some video game roles and I kinda like the thought of him voicing Cyrus/Silas

Rinkah: Amanda C. Miller- Again, I like the thought of it

Lucina: Laura Bailey for obvious reasons

Female Avatar: Cherami Leigh- She did Asuna Yuuki and I could easily picture her doing another main heroine

Male Avatar: Sounds like Ted Sroka, but other guesses would be Bryce Papenbrook or Johnny Yong Bosch

Takumi: Yuri Lowenthal or Bryce Papenbrook... I don't know why........

Lazward, Luna, and Odin: Same previous VAs who did Inigo, Severa, and Owain

Joker/Jakob: It think Johnny Yong Bosch would be fitting

Flora: Natalie Hoover would suit her since she did Adelheid

Mozume: Christine Marie Cabanos- She has a Madoka vibe about her plus typecast for lolis. Go figure.

Grey, Syalla, Matoi: Same VAs as past Fire Emblem characters they're based on

Garon: Travis Willingham

Charlotte: Stephanie Sheh- It could easily be her since she can also voice characters who act sweet while also voicing many mean characters as well

Oboro: Sarah Williams- Seems like someone she'd voice

Kazahana/Hana: Lauren Landa
Unknownsage13
said at 9:13 PM on Sat Sep 5 2015
@Cinnamoroll0622 Good list. And probably alot of these VAs will be in it. Idk about Alexis Tipton though. She's a Houston based VA and idk if they'd fly her all the way out to LA just for the handful of lines she'd probably have.

Hopefully Laura Bailey does return for Lucina! She may be turning down anime roles left and right, but the more lenient video game schedule usually works for her.

I assume "Llewellyn" is the English version's name for one of the other characters, since there's nobody with that name in the Japanese game.

Back when I first joined the site in mid-2010 DC Douglas actually stopped by to comment on the Raven (Tekken) voice compare, and he mentioned that he didn't know the name of the game he was working on or what his character looked like. He only had really early prototype footage to go off of.* English dub voice actors are often not given the full picture of what they're working on in order to maintain secrecy.

*Due to a glitch, early comments from before we put the profile system in place don't display at the moment, but you can read his comment on this page:

@King Marth 64 Gunther is probably what his English name is actually going to be. Note that there's also a Llewellyn, a name which is not in the Japanese version. I would guess the title is different because the Japanese name was probably still being used when the VO waa actually recorded.

Wow there are loads of characters now, I can't tell if they're good guys, bad guys or NPCs, they all look playable.

@ErronDio

Roughly half the characters are exclusive to the Hoshido ("good") path and the other half are path to the Nohr ("bad") version, though a select few are in both.

The characters in the Lilith --> Lala group are NPCs. Everyone else is playable.

@Cinnamoroll0622 I could picture Christine due to how often she plays cute characters (K-On, Sword Art Online, Danganronpa 2). I mostly know Kira for Blue Exorcist, which is a borderline tsundere role so not sure if I could picture her as a cutesy girl.

@NCZ Wait what happened in the support conversation?
NCZ (Admin)
said at 1:51 PM on Thu Jul 2 2015
@HylianBelmont Basically Soleil is attracted to girls. She talks about how she always faints whenever she's near cute girls.

So, in an attempt to solve this fainting problem, Male Avatar *slips a magic powder into her drink without her knowledge* that causes her to see him as a girl.

That's pretty wack.

There's other concerning issues regarding the treatment of Soleil's character (like the fact that she can't actually be in a relationship with female units despite her preferences) but that's the general gist of what many people (including myself) take issue with.

I have to say while I enjoy the gameplay of Fire Emblem and am anticipating this game from that sense, a lot of the elements regarding characters and their relationships and all the romance stuff are putting me off. The way they're being handled rubs me the wrong way overall. That's just me though. I'm hoping Treehouse recognizes this and can get rid of the more unsavoury elements during localization.

@Katsu I have and it's bunk.

- The OP didn't provide any source for the alleged backstory regarding her father and dodged the question when asked about it. Another player on Serenes Forest said they found nothing about revenge in there. And even if it is true, then it's still bad and arguably makes the situation worse (having a character seem to be gay or bi, but then turn out that they aren't really, is a bit of a copout).

- The album claims Soleil is heterosexual, but in the game itself she outright says she likes men but has a preference for girls during her support with Foleo.

- "In-game she doesn't even have a lesbian marriage option either." This doesn't mean she's not into girls, it means the developers didn't bother to give her any female relationships in spite of her preferences, which is another can of worms entirely.

- "under the implication that her recovery wouldn't work if she knew what was happening in advance." it's not implied at all; OP made that up

- "she thanks him because it helped her overcome her predicament." Nope, she says outright that it didn't work during their A support

- That post doesn't address the blatant wrongness of having a character be drugged without consent, by the main protagonist we're supposed to sympathize with no less, beyond an unfortunate-sounding "if she enjoyed it then it doesn't count" blurb. And she doesn't end up viewing all men differently - only the character who drugged her. The subtext there is very unsettling.

- The one thing that album does get right compared to the original post is that it's not strictly conversion therapy. Still, the implications of Soleil's overall character (someone whose attraction is treated as a weakness that must be corrected) are troubling to begin with. It's not malicious writing, but it's pretty narrow-minded.

- And for the record other japanese-speaking people have confirmed that the original translation in the pastebin that's been spreading is accurate.

People are free to believe what they want to believe but all that album is doing is spreading misinformation and harming the community overall.

@DravenRoth994 It's essentially a game with "what if" as its central motif. In digital copies, the player has the option to choose between two different factions, the Hoshido and the Nohr, at a certain point in the story. This choice permanently alters the storyline from that point onward.

At retail the game is available in two separate versions (Nohr and Hoshido) that make the choice automatically depending on which version it is. The other storyline will apparently be offered as DLC.

@NCZ Wow, for real?! That's sounds cool!! I was just making a joke about the title. I assumed it was some kind of acronym though, not some "what if" scenario. With that in mind, the covers above make more sense!
