    Wow the voice line up sounds amazing.

  • Ethan_Twain

    That’s quite a few voice actors!  If I recall correctly, SMT 3 did not feature voice acting.  One wonders then if this is an indication of a somewhat more… present narrative this time around.

    I would actually be totally okay with that.  I understand that minimalism is normally the name of the game in SMT narratives, but in the cases where Atlus has actually dared to go ahead and make more story focused games they’ve made some really good ones!  Persona is well known for it but Digital Devil Saga, Devil Survivor 1, and Strange Journey were all worthy yarns I feel.

    Change can be good!

  • Now that’s a great  cast! Seems like this game is going to be EPIC in every single way!

  • Grenalie

    Just don’t skimp on the dub as I doubt there will be dual audio.

    • Just Tim

      With that said, I personally don’t mind paying extra to have both the original Japanese & English VA’s as DLC.

  • Shane Guidaboni

    Awesome! But where is the trailer?! 

  • Herok♞

    Sounds like a good cast, I just hope they this many diverse voices in the U.S. version.

  • Brimfyre

    It would be cool if we got to see some of the Persona cast in the alternate SMT timeline.  Someone like Elizabeth could exist in both worlds easily.

    Also Shinjiro Aragaki is kind of a forgotten hero from Persona 3, so it would be cool to see him live on in a different timeline.

    I doubt there will be any crossover characters but that would be fab.

    • Daniel Morandi

      Is like I said about Persona having SMT cameos. Demi-fiend could easily do those travel as we saw in DDS. But I don’t know about Elizabeth, I think that seeing her too OP while she is not that important in the main storylines is stupid. At least with Philenom we know that he created the velvet room and that Personas exist because of him. Will be a little more sense if he appear.

      Anyway cameos are more like fanservice, it’s their call if they want to add any. But I believe I’ll see Raidou again xD

      • Hinataharem

        Raidou is in all games. I wouldn’t be surprised if he showed up in this game. He does travel time and space anyway.

        • Morricane

          And if not him, there’s way to many Kuzunohas anyway! One of them HAS to be bound to be somewhere where demons are :)

          • Brimfyre

            As long as Cerberus shows up.  I love the fact that this powerful god dog ipops up randomy to kick some ass and he was created from my pet dog in the first SMT game.

  • Seems interesting though I don’t usually do Japanese dub. Other than that the game from the screenshots looks pretty nice. Once it and DSSH come out here I will definitely getting them.

  • Brandonmkii

    Kazuya Nakai and Jouji Nakata? So much awesome.

  • Vitor Duarte

    Shinjiro is Travis? Wait what?

  • Marina Inoue is a huge sell for me.  I melt inside a little every time Ayesha says anything.

  • WOW what a cast, im starting to really expect lots from this, anyway atlus never disappoints me XD…

  • epy

    That’s a top notch all star cast … that I’ll never hear unless I buy a japanese 3DS. That damn region lock.

  • Make the Yu Narukami in this timeline come in as a bad ass main villain 

    • Daniel Morandi

       Pff Narukami please. Make Demi-fiend the cameo villain and everyone will suffer.

      • Morricane

         But but…he already was a cameo-villain! (and I beat him *-*)

        • Daniel Morandi

          Secret boss, yeah but im saying plot boss.

    • keithmaxx

      This is an SMT game, not a Persona. That said, I’d hardly think he will make any form of appearance in this game.

      That, and well I think that the seiyuu did not do the character full justice.

  • Daniel Morandi

     Sounds good, I like most of those actors. Sadly Atlus will dub them if they bring the game but on the other hand Atlus don’t dissapoint with the english dubs. I hope to see something like Persona and Digital Devil Saga quality.

  • Maia Kasoya

    Miyuki Sawashiro also voices Chidori Yoshino. And Yomi Takanashi/Dead Master, Carl Clover, Catherine, Mint Blancmanche, Shinku, Nana Gray…
    Oh, and Marina Inoue also voices P3Portable’s Protagonist♀. Or Hamuko/Minako, as you all call her.

    • Morricane

       Miyuki Sawashiro seems to be pretty much in EVERYTHING though…:D

      • Niyari

        hah yea. at least she is really good and doesn’t have a high pitched voice though… unlike a certain other female voice actor.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Zegra- I mean, Yamaji!? Nice. I’m liking this cast a lot. Atlus is doing big things for the first voice-acted main SMT game.

  • Crok425

    I ran out of fanboy screams today… because of this game. Already saving money for a 3DS!!!

  • Tales_of_Master

    Katsuyuki Konishi, Kazuya Nakai, Jouji Nakata, and Houchu Ohtsuka ?!!Atlus is making a habit of using an all-star cast of voice actors. SMTIV is the first game in the series to have full voice acting, which make me wonder how different the game will feel from the previous ones. Hurry Atlus, release the damn trailer, the hype is killing me xc

  • Those are some big VAs!!! ATLUS is going all out eh.

  • Oltheros

    Wow…Miyuki Sawashiro, Marina Inoue…too bad they will get dubbed over by Atlus USA
