Vaan’s Japanese Voice Actor Mentions New Voice Work Too

By Spencer . October 13, 2010 . 2:09am

imageFirst, Vaan’s English voice actor said he reprised his role as the Final Fantasy XII lead and recorded new work for Square Enix. Now, Vaan’s Japanese voice actor, Kouhei Takeda, is saying the same thing. Takeda wrote about it on his blog, but pulled the quote about Vaan.


Not fast enough though, because game blog Teiten Kansoku copied and pasted Takeda’s original post. The missing line reads, "Hey, Square Enix-san. Is that work with Vaan going to appear? I’m waiting (lol)"


Widespread speculation is Vaan will appear as a character in Dissidia 012[duodecim]: Final Fantasy. The PSP game is slated for spring in Japan and a 2011 release in North America.

    vaan english voice actor did the same thing.

  • Aoshi00

    Would’ve been better if they chose a different guy, Vaan was pretty bad alrdy, his Jpn actor (yes, not a voice actor) was even worse, he couldn’t even speak clearly when reading his lines, even Jpn gamers had trouble understanding him. His amateur voice made Vaan sound like the king of noob..

  • What? Vaan is a favorite of mine, so of course Im excited at the possibility of him returning for another game.

  • Guest

    damn it I hate Vaan. Just look at that questionable pose he’s doing in that pic. Just full of fail…why couldnt they have picked someone else..

    • Dude why so negative?! Vaan was and is awesome in his games.

      • shion16

        dude xDDDDDD

      • Vaan looks like a cheap whore.

  • I actually like Vaan more than Balthier as a person because he’s distinctly more human (and less one-note) than his roguish companion, but a little gunplay would’ve diversified the roster a bit and Balthier likely has more fans anyway. While I’m genuinely curious as to which direction they’ll take Vaan gameplay-wise to differentiate him, he wouldn’t have been my first choice.

  • Pichi

    I’ll be happy if Balthier could make it into the game. If not, I hope Vaan would use his setup from FFTA2 to diverse himself.

  • Cloud_ST

    Maaan,that pose is hot and umm…the news are cool too…yeah.

  • Code

    Grrr, Vaan if you get in my Dissidia I’m going to smack you so hard, the only game you’ll be cameoing in is Gun Loco >m<;

  • shion16

    i dont know how to say it in english but here he is called “Tragasables”

  • mach

    They should’ve picked Ashe instead. As much as Balthier makes me laugh, Ashe was the only FFXII character who actually mattered to the plot, and her story was genuinely interesting.

    Plus there needs to be a scene where she and Lightning join forces and defeat Chaos with the power of bitchiness. Or they could get in a slap fight. That would be better, actually.

  • kupomogli

    I would have liked to see Balthier, Ashe, Fran, or even Captain Basch Fon Ronsenberg of Dalmasca. I guess we technically got Captain Basch. Don’t listen Ondore’s lies btw.

    • shion16

      Basch Lives!

    As I’ve said before, I have no problem with Vaan. I think the poor guy gets way too much criticism heaped on his head. He wouldn’t have been my first choice but I’m fine with it. As someone else said, however, I would have preferred Balthier simply for the variance in weaponry it would have provided. Off the top of my head I can’t recall whether anyone else in Dissidia was a gunner or not. (I’m not counting gun blades.) Oh well. Maybe Yuna could fill that spot if she appears in her 10-2 incarnation.

    Of course, my vote for characters from XII probably would have gone to Larsa/Penelo anyway, simply for the cuteness factor. :P

  • IceRomancer

    I don’t mind having Vaan in dissidia, im actually kinda happy about it!
    but i wonder what weapon they’ll give him? sword?

  • cmurph666

    Dissidia needs an all Cid Mode where you play as all the Cids, and only the Cids, 24/7.

  • MrRobbyM

    Only if he;s in his Revenant Wings costume.

    • You mean his FFTA2 outfit, which basically the same outfit as all the previous ones except he decided to actually put a long sleeved shirt on under his vest.

  • “Hey, Square Enix-san. Is that work with Vaan going to appear? I’m waiting (lol)”

    Just the fact that the work for Vaan is questionable? A guaranteed role in Dissidia would be more solid by now? So I think Vaan might have a chance in appearing at least in a minor role in Kingdom Hearts.
