Default Yo-Kai Watch Season 3 Alternate Dub

This showed up on Cartoon Network Africa's YouTube channel a while ago:

I've got no idea who these people are.

This is very clearly not the U.S. dub. Right off the bat, Usapyon doesn't have his southern drawl. I also don't think it's the Hong Kong dub either. There isn't much to go off of, but that doesn't sound like Sarah Hauser as Kei-I mean, Nate. Which is another thing. This dub uses the localized names and features video edits. Those are things Hong Kong productions don't bother with.

There's some speculation this dub was commissioned by Turner MENA. Possibly in France or the UK? Usapyon says he's "rubbish at making friends." That's not slang you hear in the Americas.

I don't recognize any voices offhand, but UK seems possible. Level-5 record stuff in the UK all the time.

The only thing is that Inazuma Eleven (VG) and Layton made no attempts at hiding their accents. This does. I guess maybe to maintain consistency with S1 and S2, which aired with the U.S. dub? I'm not sure how involved Level-5 is with this one. The show is distributed in EMEA through Viz's office in Paris.

I really don't understand why this exists. It would've been justifiable if this came out during the year-long delay the American voice cast swap caused ... but the U.S. dub of season 3 ended in December. Maybe this dub is older, though prior to this African run it was just used as the basis for the French and Spanish versions (which came out well before both English dubs)? However, I want to say some of those actors have said it was direct from the Japanese version.

True, I was moreso thinking if this is UK it's American-born UK actors. Level-5's worked with them plenty as well but usually blended in and not overtaking native Brits.

They've really been fracturing YW between NA and Europe lately. Europe got YW3 before NA did too. I have no idea why but my guess is yeah, they're just going for Europe in general and then UK gets swept up as part of that. I think that's usually the case in split locs like that.
