Rie Tanaka Returns to Voice Ciel in Rockman X DiVE

It's no secret that some characters in Rockman X DiVE were distributed without voices because they lacked spoken dialogue in their original games. And in some case, like Iris, Forte and Ciel, intended recording sessions for new voiced lines were impacted by the COVID pandemic. Many were put on hold.

Iris received voiced lines in July 2020. Forte and his many iterations followed only a week ago. And now, it's finally time for Ciel to stop being mute because her original voice actress, Rie Tanaka, is back to voice her!

The last time Rie Tanaka was involved in the franchise was during the promotion of the Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection. She released a new version of Rockman Zero 4's ending vocal track, Freesia, and made a guest appearance in Capcom TV.

Ciel's voice will be implemented this Wednesday. Meanwhile, "Valentines Day Ciel" and "Christmas Ciel" will follow suit on June 29. You can check a preview of the new voice lines here!


  1. I approve! Welcome back, Lady Tanaka!
    (Not that they need my approval…)

  2. It's so nice to hear Rie-san's voice again! One question tho, and I kindly ask: WHAT TOOK THEM SO LONG?
    I know VAs have schedules and all, but Ciel was included nearly 2 years ago and only now she got voice lines. Was Japan's lockdown that strict?
