I actually think I might buy this game. Sure the graphics aren't the best, but it looks fun and the soundtrack is pretty fantastic. The roster is also starting to improve for me (having Celica was a huge surprise, and it honestly made me happy). And while voice acting for the Fates characters is pretty bad (with the expection of Ryoma and Leo) and not having Laura Bailey for Lucina is a huge bummer, I think Julie Ann Taylor's Cordeila is enough for me to play it dubbed.

@Soul-dragon

I have to admit they've been turning things around lately. If they had revealed Lyn and Celica, as well as History Mode a lot earlier, I feel like people might not have been as worried. I don't know if I'll get it right away mainly because Odyssey is out the weak after, but at least it seems the ship is being righted. I can't help but wonder if maybe they took fan feedback into account and managed to squeeze Celica and Lyn in quickly towards the end. It's pretty surprising that they're in the base game but people like, say, Azura and Tharja aren't.

@NCZ Yeah it was a dumb move to release it a week before Odyssey. I'll probably buy it instead (because I have yet to buy the switch) but Nintendo really should have thought ahead. It's like releasing an Alvin and the Chipmunks movie on the same day as Star Wars or a Winnie The Pooh movie the same day a Harry Potter film comes out.

Celica? Nice. I didn't like how easy it was for her to get tricked in the second half, but I'm all for it (especially since Erica Lindbeck will probably be reprising her and I'd love to hear her in the role again.) Now can we get either Alm or Eirika (sorry there my favorite lords in the series)

So...Valbar has been confirmed/leaked.
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=FScZ4OEntxQ
I don't know how I feel about this honestly. I never really cared for the guy, and he's a complete scumbag (like Jedah), but it's good to see a villain (even though I would've preferred either Michalias, Lyon or Julius) and chances are Kyle Hebert is reprising him along with Takehito Kosayu (I'm starting to believe NCZ about IS being fans of his).

@Soul-dragon

He is an NPC in history mode. Also it's Validar. Valbar would be ridiculously random.

There is one thing that would instantly redeem any roster gripes for me, the Black Knight. I don't care if he's DLC, dude is perfect for a Warriors game.

@Nightmare Crusher He would be perfect, come to think of it. But he'll probably be DLC or something like that.

Finally! We got Lyn and it looks like Wendee Lee is reprising her role, which is good because she sounds fantastic here. Now I just want to know the rest of the roster...(but seriously I really want to see Azura, Michealias, Camus, Caeda, Navarre, Alm and Celica)
BlueHeracross
said at 1:21 PM on Sun Sep 17 2017
@Soul-dragon
That's a little disappointing to hear. Wendee fits the character better than Lani, but she's still not really the best person for the role.
Soul-dragon
said at 5:41 AM on Mon Sep 18 2017
@BlueHeracross Really? I think she's a perfect fit TBH (the only role of hers I hate is Haruhi). But she's definitely better than Lani, who sounded to deep for a character who's supposed to be around 17.
HylianBelmont
said at 3:27 AM on Tue Sep 19 2017
@BlueHeracross I actually think her voice in the "Bridal Blessings" DLC was the one to go with tbh. A shame she doesn't sound like that here.
HylianBelmont
said at 3:41 AM on Tue Sep 19 2017
@Soul-dragon Navarre was apparently spotted behind Marth in the EU direct or something (they forgot to hide him and Caeda there) so there's that. Think we'll get to see the original big man Draug as well?
Soul-dragon
said at 5:46 AM on Tue Sep 19 2017
@HylianBelmont Yeah I saw that. I'm curious as to how Chermai Leigh and Tallesin Jaffe will pull them off here. I'm just hoping that they try to learn more about their characters (maybe by watching one of Mang's "Character Spotlights") so that the characters sound OK. As for Draug, I will admit that I'd rather see someone like Minerva, Merric or Linde.
HylianBelmont
said at 5:49 AM on Tue Sep 19 2017
@Soul-dragon Linde or Merric would probably be better choices, actually.

@NCZ

Agreed.

While I still would have liked more representation of characters outside of the SD/Awakening/Fates trifecta (like Eliwood, Eirika, and Roy and Ike, of course), I am both pleasantly surprised (largely due to timing, I just got her Brave Hero variant in Heroes a day before the Direct) and glad to see Lyn make it in time for launch.
MasterBlaster
said at 9:21 PM on Wed Sep 13 2017
As much as it'll kinda annoy the heck outta me, I really hope that we get more non-SD/Awakening/Fates characters in the game as DLC.

I mean, I know that's a given--it's Koei Tecmo and Nintendo we're talking about here. But, at the same time, ya never know, it could be more Fates and Awakening characters. So, I'm crossing my fingers that is isn't.

@NCZ Rumor is Celica will join too.

Now, where's Ike?! *shakes fist*
HylianBelmont
said at 3:26 AM on Tue Sep 19 2017
@SNaG I'd prefer Ike over Celica tbh. Or even the plain "God Emperor" himself, Alm. Or, dare I even say it, "more Awakening/Fates characters" over her.

Oh, but yeah. Lyn joining was a good thing IMO! Not simply because she's a "non-3DS FE character" (couldn't care less about that mentality) but because she's a nice character in general.

@Fulgore2005 Well, the game does seem fun although History Mode is such a missed opportunity. It would've been a great way to introduce people to the stories from the older games (I for one wanted to learn more about them). Oh well. At least it solidifies that some villains will be in the game. That being said, I'm hoping for Michaelis the most (because he's my second favorite villain in the series and I really want to hear David Vincent as him again) and Garon the least (because I doubt they'd be able to get Travis Willingham back, and I don't think anyone could play the character as well as he did)
HylianBelmont
said at 5:13 PM on Sat Sep 9 2017
@Soul-dragon Honestly I think I agree. Zeke was one thing but Garon was one of "those" performances from an actor you know? The type that just can't be replicated IMHO.
Fulgore2005
said at 3:35 PM on Tue Sep 12 2017
@Soul-dragon Interesting view. If this game gets people into Fire Emblem then it works out one way. Definitely agreed with your thoughts on Garon. Another voice just wouldn't be the same.

I'm hoping for a sequel where they focus on the older games like Gaiden/Valentia. Like I said further down this page, Valentia could have been great as a Warriors game on its own.

@Luigikun

Eh. I've said it before but I don't think anyone honestly believes FE Warriors will be a *bad* game. Nobody can deny that it will most likely come into its own with DLC. I think people are more just underwhelmed by how it's shaping up to release at launch and bummed that they have to look forward to DLC before it's even out when characters are a huge part of what makes Warriors crossovers exciting. History Mode looks good and revealing that early on probably could've helped things. Sonic Forces is the only one of the three that has the potential to honestly be outright bad if only because it's trying so many things even with 3D Sonic's hit-and-miss track record, but most people's expectations have been pretty reserved to begin with and they would have to try pretty hard to screw up the boost stages.

Good thing you're not the only person in the world then. It's important to keep things updated with as complete and official information as possible.

Persona 5 had its main English cast members announced before release. This game hasn't. Please just be patient and wait for release. I'd rather wait until everything is official before jumping the gun.

I know everyone has already said this, but I'm just going to say it again.

This game is shaping up to be a major disappointment.

The moment things started going downhill for me was when they announced that they were only including characters from Fates, Shadow Dragon and Awakening. It honestly wasn't a shock, but still disappointing, mainly because I really grew to love some of the older characters after Heroes and I was charmed by some of the performances in Heroes (the main ones being Buckland as Eirika, Knickerbocker as Ninian, and Papenbrook as Raven) and wanted to hear them again. It is possible they'll appear as DLC but that's all I really care about at this point (besides the possible support opportunities).

Then it was revealed that Laura Bailey wouldn't be reprising Lucina. I will admit that I did see this coming, but it was still sad to see nonetheless since Lucina is the reason I actually began the franchise (I loved her so much in Smash and Laura's performance definitely helped). While Tipton does sound more solid than more of the other replacements, Laura just had a certain warmth in her voice that I don't think anyone could really match.

And that leads me to the Fates characters. I knew all of the characters that were announced would make it in, but the voice acting for a majority of them is awful and (as NCZ said earlier) the roster is pretty predicable. I mean, I can already tell what characters will be announced next. If I had to guess, than I'd say that Azura, Tharja, Elise, Tiki and Sakura all are going to be announced. Call me an elitist all you want, but it's the truth.

But on the brightside the Gameplay does look pretty fun and some of the voices (those being Leo, Fredrick, Robin, Chrom and Marth) sound OK. But I don't think I'll be rushing out to buy it anytime soon.

You know, if there IS one positive thing I can say about the voice direction for Warriors so far. It's that I've seen people who weren't too big on Hinoka or Xander's voices in Fates specifically, actually start to appreciate them more because of how they sound here.

Which is perfectly fine with me :)

The English voice acting so far sounds...really bad actually.
Well, in my opinion obviously.
I'm mostly talking about Hinoka, Camilla and Xander.

Casting Cindy Robinson as Hinoka on paper sounds perfect, nobody better for the role...then you hear her and you instantly regret that thought. But I can't think who could replace E.G Daily. Don't get me wrong, I love Cindy as a VA, but she isn't suited to Hinoka. She has more material to work with but the voice she used for Heroes was too boyish, now it's too feminine. I don't know, maybe go down a different road foe her voice, I could see Erin Fitzgerald, Amanda C Miller voice her...and nobody else can? Let's move on.

I LOVED Misty Lee in Heroes, but she sounds too high pitched here, same with Xander (whose voice I was never a fan of)

But that's just from trailers, who knows, maybe the final version will be different! The voices won't put me off enjoying the game.

@Soul-dragon Nah, I don't care for Japanese voice acting. I'd rather understand what the characters are saying without having to read subtitles. If anything, I'd rather watch a fan dub series on YouTube as opposed to listen to Japanese audio.
Soul-dragon
said at 12:16 PM on Sat Aug 26 2017
@PeachesDaisy Really? It's not that bad to read subtitles. Yes, they can be distracting, but some dubs are bad enough to warrant it (cough cough Pokemon cough cough). However, I might not play with dual audio, since the character I'd already decided to main sounds OK. And some of the voices for the unannounced character actually be OK (I'm positive Tiki will make an appearance since she got an amiibo, and Mela Lee seems to know the character well enough to do a decent job)
HylianBelmont

@PeachesDaisy I honestly have to wonder why the voice director thinks Cindy Robinson's AMY ROSE voice is a good fit for Hinoka? She doesn't sound like a "Warrior Princess" at all anymore sadly.
Soul-dragon
said at 10:53 AM on Sun Aug 27 2017
@HylianBelmont Why anyone thought Amy Rose was fit to replace Buttercup is beyond me. I just hope that the Shadow Dragon characters sound OK (thankfully Marth sounds fantastic here, but part of that may have to do with the fact that this is Yuri Lowentall's 4th time voicing the character) but since the majority of the SD characters who have a small chance at getting in have already been cast, I have a feeling it might turn out OK, but the voices for the Fates characters (with the exception of Leo, Takumi, Ryoma and Corrin) are shaping up to be rather bad.
HylianBelmont
said at 11:01 AM on Sun Aug 27 2017
@Soul-dragon I'm hoping we get to hear more of Walden James's Jagen personally haha. Also agreed on Lowenthal's Marth sounding pretty solid here! He's definitely become a great fit for the character ever since Codename Steam.
Soul-dragon
said at 11:25 AM on Sun Aug 27 2017
@HylianBelmont Agreed on Jeagan. I'd also love to hear Chermai Leigh as Caeda again (if she used her Makoto Nijma voice I know she'd be prefect) and Talesmin Jaffe as Navarre (his take was prefect). But it could always be just Tiki and Marth.
PeachesDaisy
said at 10:58 AM on Wed Aug 30 2017
@Soul-dragon I don't have a problem with the Pokemon voice Englsih dub, I find it WAY better than the old cast, but I grew up with the new cast so I don't have that 'nostalgia factor'.
And look, not everyone on this site like Japanese voice acting, you do and that's great I respect your opinion.
And Mela Lee does an ok Tiki, she isn't who I'd use as an example - then again, who is a good example nowadays?
PeachesDaisy
said at 11:00 AM on Wed Aug 30 2017
@HylianBelmont No, I don't get an Amy Rose feel from her voice. And Lisa Ortiz's Amy voice would work well enough for Hinoka, if she pitched it down a little - so I guess Hinoka having Amy's voice would work. It would work a lot more than Ken Amada's voice anyways.

@PeachesDaisy 1:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KS-u1rVFoYU This is why you never watch Pokemon in English and why I always stick to the sub. 2: Azura is another character who I'm positive will make an appearance and Rena Strober has always done a amazing job with both the singing and voice (it does pay to hire a Broadway actress). Another example I'd make is Tharja. As much as I despise the character, she will most definitely make it in, and Stephinie Sheh practically OWNS the role.
HylianBelmont
said at 12:33 PM on Wed Aug 30 2017
@PeachesDaisy Fair enough, but I do still get an "Any Rose" vibe from Cindy Robinson's performance here however.

But admittedly, I do still agree with you on it fitting more than Ken Amada's voice XD

@Soul-dragon I don't have a problem with the English version, not everyone wants blaring music in the middle of a battle. Plus I love Ash and Diantha's voice. Could you do any better? I don't think sooooo~
I like both Azura and Tharja, I LOVE Rena's singing and hopefully she'll sing a little more if Azura comes back and she reprises the role.
I don't like games making characters like Tharja and Camilla either, I like them as units in game - but the way the fans represent them is rather sickening.
Soul-dragon
said at 11:06 AM on Thu Aug 31 2017
@PeachesDaisy 1. Diantha's voice is OK, but Ash's is awful. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against his VA (I looked up some of her other work and to my surprise she was actually pretty good (in fact she's my top choice to voice Lusamine, because my headcanon voice (which would be Carrie Kearnan) will probably not happen).
2. I would like to hear her sing Lost in Thoughts all Alone again as well. In fact it would be a dream come true for me if she and Bonnie Gordon did a duet (combining Lost in Thoughts all Alone and the Hertiors of Arcadia).
3. Yeah, the way some idiots represent them is sick. Take this video and it's comments https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tl2W4R3Ob8I. Honestly, if I had to give them some advice I'd tell those people to go out and meet some REAL girls. I even had the nerve to give this person some advice.

Honestly one of my few hopes for this game would be the supports. I really hope that they are fully voiced and it would definitely be cool to see characters from other games interact (I've always wanted a support conversation between Cordeila and Camillia mainly because I want to see Cordeila react to Camillia's relationship with Selena/Severa)

Yeah I'm not feeling this. Even with the SD/Awakening/Fates limit, the roster is so safe and predictable. Also, even replacements aside, the Eng VO sounds like a step down from the 3DS games. Oh well.

@NCZ I honestly liked Misty Lee's new voice for Camilla the most out of all the characters in that trailer if I'm being honest. Doesn't beat Miyuki Sawashiro or Paula Tiso's performances as the character for me but it's a nice effort however.

But everyone else (aside from Takumi and Leo I suppose) just sounded off. Especially Xander! Why do they insist on having him pitch up his voice more and more for him for every new game? He sounds less like a commanding force on the battlefield, and more like Siegbert.

Also I feel the voice direction is a step down from Heroes as well.

@Luigikun

Even if all the VO in the trailers isn't the same as that as the game itself (unlikely since most of what we've heard seems to be story-related), it would've been recorded at the same time as the game, so either way it's not too encouraging.

@HylianBelmont

The SSB4 trailer was recorded long after Fates itself.
Soul-dragon
said at 11:08 AM on Tue Aug 22 2017
@NCZ Same. I thought the voices would be OK...but then I heard Hinoka's. It sounded so grating and forced and the others were OK but didn't stand out (the ONLY voice that stood out to me in the trailer was Leo's so props to Mittelman). As for the roster, it is both safe and predicable. I knew Camillia and the other siblings would make it in, and I'm positive the other characters will be just as predicable so my hype has truly died. BUT my hype might return if they announce Caeda (because I love her as a character and unlike everyone else I felt Chermai Leigh's take was pretty good).
NCZ (Admin)

@Soul-dragon

I think I can see Caeda, Navarre, and Camus joining but then at the same time I wouldn't be shocked if it's just Marth. Actually Tiki could show up too I guess. But yeah, I'm feeling burned out after so many other recent crossovers mainly drawing from those games (mainly SSB and Tokyo Mirage Sessions) and I think not having it draw from the series as a whole is a major missed opportunity. I've said it before but it's not a great sign to be looking forward to DLC before the game is even out.

To be fair about Hinoka it sounds like they're having Cindy do a more natural take instead of imitating Elizabeth Daily so maybe it could pay off.

It's so weird. Is it just a cup of tea thing? Heroes did it to an extent, but this game even moreso. I just don't get it. Couldn't they get Zimmerman/Formosa to do this one at least? With the Fates focus it might've given a better chance to be truer to that game's cast.

Soul-dragon
said at 12:30 PM on Tue Aug 22 2017
@NCZ I do agree with you about being tired of all of crossovers from the Shadow Dragon, Awakening and Fates. It's one of the reasons I was so thrilled to see a banner with Scared Stones characters appear in Heroes. And it's definitely a missed opportunity to not pull characters from all of the games. I was attached to some of the characters from Awakening, Fates and Shadow Dragon (Those being Oboro, Maribelle, Sumia, Keaton, Leo) but I honestly would've liked some characters from the past games as well (I really wanted Sanaki and Eirika). In fact, the entire fanbase is in agreement on it being a missed opportunity.

I mean... That's just how it is? It's not a bad thing to feel intuitive about what you like and what doesn't personally grab you. Most people tend to have a pretty good intuition about that sort of thing. I'm looking at FE Warriors as someone who is

- An FE fan
- A very, VEEERY casual Warriors fan
- Has multiple games that I'm looking forward to within the same time

I loved Hyrule Warriors because its creative combination of Zelda with the Warriors formula was enough for me to give it a look, and it paid off really well. I'm completely down for a game that combines a series I love with the Warriors format if it does it really well like that. The thing is as an FE fan I don't feel so hot about the roster leaving out so many great games and their characters, and the picks from the games they are going with being somewhat safe.

I like the Warriors style and I trust the core gameplay will be solid, but it's just not enough that I feel the need to rush out and pay $50 for the game.

I love playing a variety of games and this autumn has tons of things that I'm completely down for. In September I'm interested in Samus Returns and the SNES Classic. October has Super Mario Odyssey, Azure Striker Gunvolt combo pack. There's also a couple other things I'm interested in but don't mind waiting a bit for like South Park and the Dragon's Dogma remaster, as well as plenty of games from earlier in the year I didn't get at launch and am planning to check out before 2017 is up. As much as I love games and consider it to be my favourite hobby, I only have so much free time and free money. If I had more of that I wouldn't be opposed to giving FE Warriors a look. But as it is I'm just not really feeling it and, like I said, it's the kind of game that seems like it'll have a lot of DLC and maybe a complete edition down the line so I'm in no rush to get it at launch when I can wait until there's more meat on its bones and evaluate it then.

I don't think FE Warriors will be a bad game, not by any means. With Warriors you know what you're getting. But there's enough info out there for us to get the idea of what to expect from it. There's plenty of people out there who can look at that info and decide they're down for it, but it's also fair if people can look at that and think that they're good. It's also fine to use that as a jumping-off point to discuss something. In comparison when I saw Echoes or Fates I knew from day 1 that I was interested, that never really wavered, and I ended up enjoying them. That's all there is to it. It's funny though, I find that games are a hobby where it seems like it's easy to fall into a cynical mentality, but even if I'm not personally into a release it's not something I try and get that worked up about. Games are in a great place at the moment, but obviously not every single release is one that will personally speak to you and that's fine. It's no different than any other hobby or medium.

@Soul-dragon

I'm glad Heroes and Echoes exist because they're a perfect opportunity to shine light on the older games and introduce people to some new favourite characters. Even I have to admit I'd never really given Gaiden a chance before, but I love Echoes and am so grateful they decided to remake it.

I think Warriors seems like more of a breaking point since it's so soon after those games reignited interest in the older games, and the other crossovers mainly focusing on SD/Awakening/Fates. It makes me wonder, actually, if maybe the issues surrounding the roster would be less pronounced if the game came out a few years sooner. Obviously that's a big what-if since they were still working on Hyrule Warriors up until last year but it's some interesting food for thought.

I'm still holding out for Ike and/or Lyn being part of the base roster but things are starting to get tight.

@NCZ Yeah Cup of Tea did great with Awakening and Echoes. But the Fates characters, both the recasts and reprisals. Just don't have the enjoyable flair that Kris Zimmerman gave to the voice direction for them. Hopefully she works on the Switch one honestly.

"The SSB4 trailer was recorded long after Fates itself" yeah that's right actually. I always keep forgetting about that admittedly.
MasterBlaster
said at 4:51 PM on Tue Aug 22 2017
@NCZ Yeah, part of me is thinking that this is perhaps a Kevin McMullan-type thing and Cup of Tea is trying out a new voice director for this game, which feels that way, considering how CoT only has two consistent voice directors and how lackluster the VA have been so far, just by the trailers alone.

Though, part of me also wonders if the dub was produced under a lower budget (à la MGS: TTS), hence the off-putting performances so far.

It is a shame in regards to Cup of Tea, after Awakening, Heroes, and Echoes all had great performances around the board.

@NCZ I completely agree that Zimmerman would have bought in better performances for Warriors, given her work in Fates.

I also understand the disappointment of mainly focusing on SD/Awakening/Fates. At the very least, Intelligent Systems is up to wanting to make a sequel using different characters.

New director is what I was thinking as well. This just isn't up to Wendee Lee or Patrick Seitz's usual standards.

They have more than just two VDs but it is usually Wendee who ends up being most common. Taliesin Jaffe directs stuff for them occasionally, so does Kirk Thornton. Sam Riegel and Liam O'Brien used to but they've been so busy lately that they haven't as much. Then occasionally you get Seitz. My bet is maybe it's a new(er) VA or an outsider VD who usually works with different companies (like how Taliesin used to direct for NGP before starting with Cup of Tea).

@NCZ My thoughts exactly. It couldn't be Wendee Lee or Patrick Setiz but we know it's not Zimmerman because Daily, Rose and Tiso didn't reprise. It could be a newcomer, because it does feel like a step down from Echoes. However on my thoughts on the game as a whole (gameplay and character wise) is...well...SageMaster15 describes it perfectly.-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqDJK08ZvUo&t=35s

@HylianBelmont Haha you liked the Fates voices for the cast? I honestly thought Camilla, Hinoka and Takumi sounded rubbish in Fates. "Big name" voice actors or not, those voices couldn't have missed the mark harder. I couldn't be happier that Formosa isn't handling the Fire Emblem series anymore honestly.

These new takes in Warriors sound far better. Hinoka is still off and it's a shame none can apparently match how good the Japanese voice sounds, but Elizabeth Daily's smoker voice was in a whole league of bad of its own. Camilla and Takumi are leagues better as well, with Camilla actually sounding her age rather than 20 years older and Takumi sounding appropriately young and hot blooded. I'm honestly enjoying almost all of the voice acting we've been seeing thus far and am totally pumped for when the game comes out.

I read through a bit of the massive thread here and I honestly don't see what you guys are saying. There are some hiccups here and there but it all sounds up to par with Heroes to me so I wouldn't be surprised at all if this is Patrick Seitz or Wendee Lee. I think you guys either haven't played enough of Heroes to get used to the new voices or you're overreacting to the change. I get that you guys liked Kris Zimmerman's work and fair enough I suppose, but I think you should chill and give this stuff another listen or two.

Also remember even a good voice director's work can vary in quality, I can't believe Kris Zimmerman did the awful Fates dub and then also worked on stuff like Metal Gear and Bayonetta. Wendee Lee has done some fantastic work and also did the surprisingly awkward Xillia dub, which should've been leagues better with the cast it had.

But hey, stick to your trepidation if you wish, but I'm loving what I see and hear so far. Far more so than what I saw and heard in Fates.

@Stelman257 Wow, what a condescending comment. I mean if the Fates dub was "rubbish" then why do the majority of the people, on this site and others, seem to like it? Also you can't tell me that Cindy Robinson's AMY ROSE voice for Hinoka here is BETTER than EG Daily's natural tomboy voice. No offence but you seem so biased against the Fates dub that you're desperate to prefer anything else different or new. Even subpar imitations.

And how pray tell did Takumi not sound hot blooded and youthful in Fates, did you even listen to him in the "betrayal" cutscene? Oh, and look! The "LOL CAMILLA'S VOICE IN FATES SOUNDS OOOOLD" nonsense again lol. Mature doesn't necessarily equal = old-sounding.

And don't you DARE accuse me of being biased against the Heroes voice cast or the VAs themselves. I've heard plenty of it, and I was one of the people DEFENDING the replacement VAs despite preferring the originals. I even gave Cindy Robinson a chance, but unfortunately I just can't like it. And if you unironically think that Xander's weird "chummy" and high- pitched voice is an improvement over how he sounded in Fates. Then I have no idea what to say to that other than "I suppose I respect your opinion"

@Fulgore2005

Yeah, I think that a Warriors 2 would make sense at some point. Fresh start, feature all of this one's characters, plus more characters from more games right off the bat. Although, I figured Hyrule Warriors would be a prime candidate for a sequel as well so maybe they'd alternate between the two. Like you say it depends on how well this one does. Hyrule Warriors actually did really well.

@BlueHeracross

You know, that's funny. When I wrote that bit about outsider directors, Chris Cason was one of the people I had in mind since he's voiced for Cup of Tea before and been directing LA stuff lately. I didn't know he did Akiba's Beat. Interesting.

@Soul-dragon

It is frustrating. I do get the vibe this game was developed separately from Heroes and Echoes and they probably took a gamble on playing it relatively safe with the games represented. KT took a gamble but I'm sure they probably wish they had the benefit of hindsight. With a fanbase as ravenous as this they're probably worried about becoming shark food.

@NCZ Agreed. Though I wouldn't be surprised if a potential sequel only kept in the twins (and likely Darios) and chose to include different characters from different games (like Radiant Dawn, Shadow Of Valentia and Blazing Blade).

Personally, I think Koei COULD have simply done one game per FE story. Like the previously mentioned SoV. I think that the story/music with Koei's gameplay would make for a great DW/FE game.

That'd be one way of doing things. They could have it like Dragon Quest Heroes 2 where the story mode is a different cast, but the characters from the first game who aren't in the story are still playable outside of it.

It'd be cool if they did something like Hyrule Warriors' adventure mode and had adventure maps based on each game.

@HylianBelmont My apologies, I don't think I intended to be condescending but I definitely came off that way.

But even so what I was trying to say is still absolutely how I feel. EG Daily's voice, call it natural tomboy or whatever you will, I really felt it was truly truly awkward and unfitting. Cindy Robinson's Amy Rose voice is at absolute worst, a side step in my view. I will contest that I'm biased against the Fates dub though, because I thought Xander, Leo, Ryoma, Elise and Sakura sounded just fine (hell I love how Leo sounds). Camilla and Takumi I absolutely prefer their replacements, and while you may call Camilla's voice "mature" in Fates, I felt they went for a vocal quality that didn't mesh with the character at all, neither personality nor design wise. I honestly haven't noticed much of a change in Xander's voice between the original game and the trailers/previews for Warriors. His Spring and Summer outfits had the voice sound strange, but I assume that was because the actor was playing up the ridiculousness of it all, for better or worse.

Anyway, I do apologies for any assumptions or bad condescending tones. I know what it's like to love a dub and see other people ****ting on it so I can't blame you too much here. I can only hope this comment makes discussion a little less ugly haha.

@Stelman257 Fair enough. Some of my reply back there was a bit of a knee-jerk reaction as well admittedly. I don't entirely agree mind you but I still get where you're coming from here and respect your opinion.

I just think my main issue with Xander's VA is that he's constantly using his higher-register for him here. Granted it happened a few times in Fates as well, but usually it was at moments when it made more sense IMO (Like when he shouts "Elise!" for example and becomes emotionally vulnerable during "that" scene)

But yeah, I love Takumi and Camilla's replacement voices as well though! Just not "as" much is all.

On a side note, I do like that Paula Tiso and Misty Lee seem to be on good terms with each other on Twitter honestly (Which may seem like a rather weird thing for me to care about or even mention here admittedly, but still haha.)

Based on the trailer it looks like Alexis Tipton is back as Lucina, which is a bit of a disappointment since I wasn't a fan of her performance for Lucina in Heroes (my problems are stated in my comment for the voice compare.) but I did like her 'Marth'. I just hope that she doesn't sound as cheerful and happy as she did there and that she gets her own character to voice for the game (I'm honestly hoping that she'll voice F!Kris is she gets in)

Honestly it's the double-edged sword of making it big. I love Troy and Laura and I'm so glad they've become as famous as they are but it's such a bummer to me whenever they lose roles. Even Liam O'Brien and Travis Willingham have been starting to head down that road too. I'm legit amazed Mercer has stuck around with his roles as long as he can. He's clubbing with Sofia Vergara and still managing to do these dubbed games. Pretty wild.

@NCZ You said once he's part of the SAG-Aftra, which makes him obtain roles in pre-lay western games, but it also allows to stay on track with his non-union works. PATRick Seitz, Max Mittelman, Robbie Daymond and Erica Lindbeck seem to be the same case, so I don't see Matt retiring from these kinds of dubs anytime soon.

Also, when did he dated her? He' said he's engaged to Marisha Ray.

@NCZ

Yeah, it really sucks. I love Laura Bailey and I'm also glad that she's become very successful, but she's such an incredible actress in her roles to the point where it always feels wrong when she gets replaced in a role that she played.

It's especially saddening because Laura has a really distinct charm in her voice acting that is irreplicable and really adds a unique level of depth and characterization to the characters she plays. It's such a unique charm to the point where it's hard to imagine anybody pulling off some of her roles better than her.

Losing Laura as Rise in P4DAN was the first real bummer to me and it still leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. Part of it is because I really like Rise as a character, and was utterly charmed by Laura's portrayal of her in most of the P4 games, so her not returning for DAN (which was also practically Rise's own game) ended up being salt in open wounds for me (didn't help they already lost four other VAs before that, Troy being one of them). It certainly didn't help that Ashly Burch's performance was aggressively mediocre and very grating (for me) to listen to. This sadly was only the start of it, as after this we saw Laura dropping a multitude of other roles as well, such as Kid Trunks and Platinum the Trinity. That also makes me kind of sad.

Alexis Tipton will probably do fine as Lucina here, but it's still gonna suck not having Laura back for the role. She's a great voice match for Laura but doesn't quite have that unique charm of Laura's voice, and Laura did an amazing job in the games she played Lucina in. Which means that while Alexis will still do a good job, whenever I hear her, there's just gonna be that nagging voice in the back of my head constantly saying "You're not Laura". I'll still get this game nonetheless but it's still a bummer, especially when Laura's so iconic in a number of her dub roles (such as Rise, Lucina, Trunks, Maka, Lust, etc.).
NCZ (Admin)
said at 6:45 PM on Thu Jul 6 2017
@ScraftyIsTheBest

Yeah, for sure. People bring up the Alexis Tipton being the permanent Laura replacement thing, and well, I'm not so sure it's always best to hire the same person to replace all of someone's roles in all cases.

They're just totally different actresses who bring very different things to the table. They have a similar dulcet quality in their throats, but apart from that they're really distinct. Alexis's voice is higher and she tends to waver a bit more with her inflections. There are roles that work with this in mind and roles that work with Laura in mind. Sometimes there's overlap, but it's not always going to be 1:1 because no two people's ranges are 100% alike.

I get exactly what you mean about voicematches being disorienting. Maybe it's just because I'm so familiar with hearing all the voices and such, but yeah. It's actually more distracting to me when a character sounds mostly soundalike, but "off", than if they just went a completely different direction. Once I'm aware that it's a replacement, my brain starts to pick up on the subtle differences and nuances and it really does take me out of it. I get that it's entirely on me, but that's why philosophically I tend to prefer when they have replacements get to really be themselves and put their own stamp on the performance. When they make it their own, it's easier to forget they're not the ones who got the ball going, know what I mean?


That's the recurring trend I've noticed with Cup of Tea compared to other dub studios. It's always Cup of Tea who tend to just go for Alexis when Laura isn't available. Meanwhile in games not done by them (MVC Infinite, Zero Time Dilemma, P4Dan), they tend to have more free reign. Cup of Tea have had a solid track record lately but I wish they would try to experiment a bit more on that front rather than strictly adhering to one guideline in all cases. Of course, there are instances when doing that is probably for the best, and going in a new direction is a misfire. You basically touched on all the reasons why DAN's dub in general was kind of a mess for example.

It can be really tricky sometimes though when dubs don't always have the hugest pool to work with, or when the original voice is just so distinct. Like Liam O'Brien as Navarre in Shin Megami Tensei IV. There's no one else really in the regular dub pool like him and try as they might, it was just really obviously someone doing a Liam O'Brien impression.

Alexis is a fine VA from what I've heard of her. I just think it's unfair if this happens too often and it makes it too easy for people to start thinking of her in Laura's shadow. Hopefully I expressed that in a way that isn't, you know, diminishing her stature or anything. Legitimately mean no disrespect to her as an individual here, just trying to look at this overall trend of casting people trying to replace others purely as a voicematch compared to other alternatives.

said at 12:29 AM on Fri Jul 7 2017
@NCZ That's actually why I was really pleased with the direction they took for Palla's voice in Echoes, Laura Bailey's voice was actually fairly higher in tone (similar to her Rise) and instead Alexis went for a slightly deeper, and husky voice. Which rather helped the performance stand on it's own IMO.

@NCZ "Honestly it's the double-edged sword of making it big. I love Troy and Laura and I'm so glad they've become as famous as they are but it's such a bummer to me whenever they lose roles."

I have an honest query here. Why, or how is this, I dunno, a logical sentence I guess? Not criticizing you here of course, but how does someone making it big mean they start seemingly appearing in LESS work, and being heard less by people? Is it because they start getting paid so much by certain jobs that they knock back other jobs? Is it because they're too busy with higher paying jobs, that apparently aren't ever a big deal/named role, since we never see them credited as a particular character in said roles? Why does them losing roles, even if they're dubbing roles, mean they're "making it big?"
I haven't heard guys like Crispin Freeman or Troy Baker in ages, and they're the "big name" VA's, but I heard guys like Erica Lindbeck or Max Mittelman quite a lot, and while they're fantastic, they're apparently the "newbie" VA's that haven't made it big?

I mean, I can guess an answer or two, but I would like to hear some thoughts on this I guess. It all seems so confusing to me.
NCZ (Admin)
said at 9:28 AM on Sun Jul 9 2017
@Stelman257

This is a very leading question and I don't think you're interpreting my statement right. I'm talking about when Laura or Troy start getting more intensive, mocap roles in AAA games, and as a result their schedule fills up to the point where they have to leave smaller/dubbed roles behind since they either don't fit into the schedule, or the pay they'd give them doesn't justify working their schedule around it. If you're at the point where you can actually afford to turn down roles in favour of the ones you find creatively fulfilling, without having it affect your ability to make a healthy living, in entertainment or artistry that is generally considered being able to "make it big". That's no different than once you find yourself in a comfortable high-paying fulltime position and don't need to take part-time or minimum wage jobs.

"I heard guys like Erica Lindbeck or Max Mittelman quite a lot, and while they're fantastic, they're apparently the "newbie" VA's that haven't made it big?"

What exactly are you hearing them in? How often are you hearing them? They're rising names, maybe. But they're not household names. People who don't follow voice actors that often know who Troy Baker and Laura Bailey are because of their close association with many of the high-profile games they work on. Troy is synonymous with The Last of Us, Bioshock Infinite, InFamous Second Son, Uncharted 4, did a ton of the promotion for those games, and closely tied to the games' creators whenever they were seen promoting or talking about them. Laura presented Gears of War 4 at E3 and her name was in headlines when her Uncharted 4 role was revealed.

I mean the reason why those other people are considered "new" is as simple as that. "Big name" people are veterans who've been around for years. "New" people have only really been around for a couple years. When you look at people like Tom Kenny or Tara Strong who've been in VO for 20+ years, a resume that only goes back to 2013 is pretty much nothing in comparison. It's nothing against those VAs in particular, that's just... what the definition of being new is. Also to note that if people appear mostly in anime and non-union JRPG dubs, it's not the highest profile form of VO due to its inherently niche audience, nor the highest-paying either. Domestic animation and domestic games are where the money and the mainstream recognition is at so the most well-known people in the industry are the ones who tend to have that on lock.

I guess that's what I figured, it's interesting. And yes you're right, Troy did appear in some huge games, but they're all from years ago now. The couple of games you listed there are mostly from 2013-2014. I guess I just find it interesting that since Troy and Laura have "made it big", that we get to hear them significantly less and less as a result.

I guess they'd be working for months and months on mocap projects as well. And I get what you're saying about newer VA's, but I just generally do hear them in games and shows more than I do VA's like Troy Baker, Laura Bailey, even guys like Crispin Freeman or Steve Blum. I'm not saying you're wrong, because I know you're not, it's just an interesting observation I've had.

I mean yes but the roster is starting to fill up fast. Optimistically there'll be around 20 at launch probably. I thought, per game, they would just go with 3 or so of the "main" characters and then have 2-3 other characters being whoever. So we'd have the OCs, however many SD characters they want (Marth, Caeda, Navarre, whoever else, maybe Abel/Cain?), Fates would be Corrin, Xander, Ryoma, Azura, and a couple other people, Awakening they'd have the main 3 and then some supporting characters. Awakening has 5 characters now and any more would feel like overkill to me (though they'll probably throw in Tharja and then wrap it up). The point I'm making is they aren't prioritizing the "non-main units" for representation as much as I was hoping and there are more "main" ones than I was expecting.

Oh I 100% always believed Tharja would make it, no doubt about that. Just things are starting to get tight when it comes to Awakening representation so I'd be surprised if there's more than her. Maybe Sumia, Gaius, Cordelia I could see joining in. I think maybe her and at most one other for "non-main" Awakening characters.

Fates is also where stuff gets tricky since there's still the rest of the royal families (Leo, Hinoka, Camilla, Takumi, etc.) plus Azura. Though they could probably skate by with just Corrin, Ryoma, and Xander representing them. Kaze, Silas, Felicia and Jakob would also make sense since they're among the few neutral units in the game.

I can see Ike and Lyn being the last two main characters if they want to go "see? It's not solely those three games" but I can also see them being saved for DLC (as non-ideal as it is to be thinking about that before launch). The likes of Sigurd, Alm and Celica, Ephraim and Eirika though, they'll definitely be DLC.

Kotaku had an interview with Hayashi. Give a small idea of what to expect.

Well Hokuto Musou, Gundam, and Dragon Quest Heroes 1 and 2 were all dubbed. Hyrule Warriors had a narrator who got dubbed.

@NCZ Ooops...What I meant that this is the one of the musou games with an actual English dub in years since Dynasty Warriors 8 (Hyrule Warriors and Nioh doesn't count for me though.)

I rather enjoyed the trailer and footage we've seen so far honestly! (Although admittedly I was a tad salty not seeing either of the Robins or M!Corrin there, but eh it's understandable.)

@HylianBelmont

They might be saving Robin and Lucina until close to launch since they're probably among the most popular major characters to pull out still, from the games they're drawing from at first.

Also for what it's worth, the press kit actually specifies Corrin as F!Corrin in her artwork's filename, so Male Corrin might be coming too, even if only as a skin.

@NCZ Yeah that makes sense. I'm one of the 10 people who actually likes M!Corrin so I want to see how he looks in Warriors haha.

@tanx6160 Eh. Honestly I'm a bit disappointed by the character models. I'll only play it if it has an amazing voice cast and good DLC (Cough, cough Eirika cough cough Hector cough cough Roy cough cough)

The English voice acting for the returning characters is good as always, but the two protagonists tend to overact at times.

Can't say much on the Japanese side, but it's cute that their voice actors are siblings IRL.

@technickal I actually do miss the way David Stanbra used to play Xander to be honest. He just had something so perfect in his pitch and tone that he's kinda lacked since Heroes, IMO.

@HylianBelmont He now sounds more... chummy I guess? He's lacking the regal oomph of the original.

@HylianBelmont

Might be Zimmerman not directing?

Matt's really emphasizing the depth for Ryoma this go around but that could just as easily be them trying to differentiate him and Chrom, I guess.
HylianBelmont

@FUNiman Definitely, he had a deeper, and more regal voice in Fates. Which was one of my favourites.

@NCZ I'd imagine that's probably the case, yeah.

@HylianBelmont @NCZ Xander seems to be characters here as he is at end game Fates, where he has resolved and gotten closure on a lot of his internal conflict, so I'm not surprised he sounds lighter and happier, as he does during the endings for Conquest and Revalation.

Matthew Mercer going ever so slightly deeper with Ryouma (who was already in a rather deep register of his voice anyway) is absolutely to truly distinguish him from Chrom. Ryouma is also a lot more royal than Chrom is as well, and the tone and speech style really reflect that. Hell, I read many who couldn't even tell if one or the other was really still Matthew Mercer!

@Stelman257 True, he does sound similar to how he did those particular endings (and in the case of Heroes, you could assume that both Xanders in that game are probably from after CQ or Rev as well)

Also, I heard Chrom's voice in the new trailer, and Matt Mercer definitely did a great job differentiating his and Ryoma's voices this time around! Chrom's voice, despite being fairly higher than in Awakening, still didn't go into Azama or Shigure territory at all IMO.
