Oh come on. You just had to find a way to mess it up, didn't you Square? Steve Burton and Beau Billingslea were in the last trailer and now they're just gone? But you kept the guy doing Biggs? What is this?

Wow, seriously? Didn't see that coming.

Square is usually pretty good about VA consistency, and used the current VA's for the last trailer, so I'm kind of surprised they're recasting. They even had Newbern voice the reveal trailer way back when.

I doubt these are just placeholders...did they just want to start fresh for the remake? Although I imagine the JP side is probably going to be the same.

I'm really not crazy about Sephiroth's new voice.

They also kept Lindbeck as Jessie. Those recasts really surprise though.

That's actually not true. The narrator of that trailer was David Lodge.

Ah, I can hear it now. I remember when I first heard it sounded a lot like Newbern. Oh well.

Steve Burton as Cloud and George Newbern as Sephiroth are such great castings, to the point that they even shined brightly when Bob Buchholz was directing them. I was hoping they would get a chance to actually go through their characters respective arcs. I would have LOVED Steve to give the Cloud performance I've been wanting to hear from him, and to confront George Newbern Sephiroth at the end.... magnifique.

But NOPE! First impressions, subject to change.

Cloud sounds.... acceptable. Barrett is whatever. Aerith sounds bland. Sephiroth is NOT good.

Why Square? You've kept a good chunk of this cast, especially Steve and George, there for over a DECADE. And now, when they can finally do justice to the roles they've been playing in endless spinoffs, you cast them aside?

I'm crossing my fingers that they're placeholders. If the Japanese version keeps their cast while the English cast gets replaced, I'd like to know why that choice was made. I'm not shallow enough to hate the new cast if their performances are great, but SE is known for their reprisals. Aerith was notably the only FF character in English that kept getting recast, from Mandy Moore to Mena Suvari to Andrea Bowen to the new actress heard in the recent trailer.

Steve Burton has been voicing Cloud in English since 2002's Kingdom Hearts. There were only a handful of times he didn't reprise the role, as the media Cloud was featured in was Japanese only, such as the Last Order OVA, Opera Omnia, and the Smash Bros. series (meanwhile, every other character speaks English, even Marth as of SSBU). For me, it'll take some getting use to not hearing Burton as Cloud.

Count on me surprised. These guys seem like they got a good director in their belt. I'm especially impressed with Cloud, Tifa and Aerith. I think we're in good hands.

The problem with Sephiroth is that he has a really plain voice, but his deliveries are great.
