  • Michael Richardson

    Cue bitching about lack of Japanese audio.

  • Luis Diaz

    Inb4 “muh dual audio or pre-order cancelled”

  • No Japanese audio, no buy.

  • Cael

    Needs dual audio.

  • Lea Pastillaroja

    I hope this get’s Japanesse audio
    It’s beyond obvious that whoever buy’s a Persona game does so because they love Japanese stuff so not including the option for Japanese Audio would be fucking retarded

  • Chocolate ISISCream

    >inb4 weeaboo faggots come in and demand muh JP dubs with english subs

    Fuck off fags, he sounds great.

  • Bitterbear

    Admit it, you’re just moist for Joey Wheeler’s voice:

  • Uncle Ocelot

    These 30 second videos are a pretty awful way to show off the English dub.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    >expecting dual audio from Atlus
    Just learn to decipher moonrunes

  • I’m kidding. I had no plans to buy this game.

    Also, 勉強しています。

    atlus must truly care about their western audience if their home country get’s AAA+ voices and when it’s time to localize it for us, they remove those godly voices and replaces them with nobody starting va’s who do a meh job at best just for a paycheck.

    I used to be a fatlus fanboy but if they do not give us dual audio in the game or via dlc, I will lose alot of respect for them. there is no fucking reason for no dual audio nay excuse to not have dual audio for your jrpg in the current year when smaller companies time and time again gave us the option.

    to be fair, this voice actor seems okay-ish but not every voice actor will BE okay-ish and I don’t want to have to stick with one language that’s meh when I have another language that has everything and the kitchen sink.

  • Kiryu

    Is there a positive way to show off English dub?

  • Uncle Ocelot

    Probably not, but they could at least do one of the PVs so you can hear more than 2 lines per character.

  • Smug

    lets do the practise with Trump-sama

  • Dago

    So many people complaining about the peple complaining for the lack of JP audio…
    Is it so hard to understand not all of us speak english natively and therefore do not want a game dubbed in a language that isn´t our native language?

    I would tolarate a dub it if it was in my native language.

  • Alister

    Awesome voice acting, can’t wait for this game to be released. This is what I pre-ordered it take your heart Edition.

  • Alister

    Testify. Okay dude I just love you. It’s nice to have an ally for once. Keep speaking your mind brother.

  • Alister

    And apologies if you’re female because I called you brother.

  • Bob Smith

    I don’t even know how you dubfags determine what’s great or not. These fucks all sound the exact same to me.

  • Chensaw

    I would tolerate dubs in any language but in usa they just don’t know how to act and they always end up sounding too fake.

  • Fear Me I Am Free

    Which is weird because I thought the dub for 3 was really good, but this is not.

  • Leandro Teixeira

    My JP copy is inbound from PlayAsia. Atlus doing dual or original audio is pure illusion, I even doubt it will come has DLC later because they’ve been radio silent about it ever since they started “considering” it and I’m not willing to wait 4 months just to find out it won’t come

  • Kaijuu

    Sounds… acceptable. I’d still like for these previews to have some longer lines that showcase more of each VA’s range but the fact that I don’t hear dozens of other characters with the same voice in my head is a good start.

    Still, I’ll stand by my preference for being able to hear the original language and buy whatever version lets me access that, JP or NA. I can only hope we get information about dual audio sooner rather than later.

  • Post Konami Kojima

    >judging a 60+ hour rpg’s voice acting based on a 30 second clip

  • tBanzai

    PLEASE pressure atlus to do dual audio, even if they need to do it as paid dlc in order to pay for the licensing cost for the voices.

  • bdp

    They couldn’t even get him to say his character’s name right?

  • Snorlaxation

    Fuuka 1, most of chie 1, a little of chie 2, and definitely Rise 2. Those were the only times I legitimately didn’t like the dub voice actors. But Honestly, I tolerated them, and enjoyed the rest.

    Atlus doesn’t do bad dubs overall, though sometimes things do fall through the cracks.

    Even If this guy’s pronunciation of sakamoto grates on me, I still like his voice. and Knowing what I do about the character, since I pretty much gave up on waiting, I think he’s a good fit
