According to the U.S Devroom, voice recording has already begun for the English version of the game, starting with the vocalization of series newcomer Aero. Although Capcom didn't reveal who will be providing the voice for our newest heroine, the actress in question dropped an interesting tease: she's voiced a character from a previous Mega Man game. Coming from the U.S Devroom:
Q: What prior experience do you have with Mega Man? What about the Mega Man Legends series specifically?---------
A: I have actually worked on another game with the MegaMan characters last year and so I became much more familiar with the series that way. Though I was playing a different character for this title, it was still fun to play in the MegaMan world. My husband told me a lot about the characters and the world when I found out I was cast, since I grew up without a TV and missed many shows (especially Japanese animation). I am excited with what a respected franchise it is though.
Hm... who could she be? We really didn't have ourselves a "vocalized" Mega Man game last year, unless, of course, she's referring to Mega Man Universe whose production would have taken place within 2010. The possibility that she's referring to Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 is something that shouldn't be overlooked, either.
Now that voice recording is taking place, perhaps we should begin to ramp up our support for the return of some of the original cast members? Huge fan of Rob Smith, here, and I'm praying the man will return to voice Teisel Bonne. I'd be great to hear Caroly Larson (Tron) and Tracy Ryan (Roll), too.
If they can't return, well, that's okay in my book. As long as Capcom can continue to uphold the quality of acting Legends is known for, then I think we'll be alright.
