    • abysswalker

      I suppose you mean PE 3 right? Or did I miss the fact that japanese versions of PE had voiceover? Please dont tell me that!!! I love Aya & Maaya

      • Chiupon

        3rd Birthday, sorry xD

        Parasite Eve could definitely benefit from a remake without losing any of it’s original charm, I’d love to hear Maaya/Yvonne voice Aya and do some of her lines from the first 2 games…

  • I’d have to watch the movie again but vaguely remember how he sounded. Deep voice if I recall

  • Monterossa

    Noojie-Woojie voice actor.

  • DanteJones

    Maaya Sakamoto voicing a blonde, short-haired girl eh? Also, Leon’s Japanese voice fits him.

    • z_merquise

      The Japanese voice for Leon also voiced Dante (of Devil May Cry) in DMC anime, Marvel vs Capcom 3 and Project X Zone.

  • ToshiChan

    Well I know what to blast on RE6 now I guess

    Veni, veni, venias, Gloriosa
    Ne me mori facias Generosa
    Veni, veni, venias, Gloriosa
    Ne me mori facias Generosa

      Ada, let’s go to the Promised Land. Shall I give you dis pear Chris?

  • Tom

    The english voice of Sephiroth, George Newbern was kickass in Dissidia, Crisis Core and Advent Children.

    • Patrick Lucas Honeyman

      I really did like his voice in Advent Children. It caught the feeling of the character well and is one of the few examples of when a dubbed voice matches the character largely for a change.

    Better prepared some spare microphone capcom.
    We are talking about Morikawa voice here

    Minagawa Junko (Ryoma of Prince of Tennis) as Ada was pretty good, she sounds cheeky :) Morikawa is a great Leon. I imported the Damnation blu-ray, dunno why they didn’t use him in Regeneration.. and Touchi Hiroki is always voicing macho guys, he’s Drake in Uncharted too.. I like both the Eng and Jpn Sephiroth, so cool and sexy..

    A lot of games/movies originally in Eng are dubbed extremely well in Jpn. I’m playing the Last of Us in Jpn now, Yamadera Kouichi is amazing as Joel just like Troy Baker, and they both voiced Vincent in Catherine.. I keep imagining Gon from HxH though when hearing Ellie :)

    Wonder how much the Jpn voice DLC pack is gonna cost, maybe $3-5?. Revelations had it for free, I like Miyamoto Mitsuru’s Parker.. I have tons of MS points to burn anyway, well I still need to beat RE6 in Eng first *.*;;…

      Hiroki Touchi also voiced Cor Leonis from FF XV who’s seems to be the group’s old guy / veteran-type of character.

      He did also voiced Leon Victorion from Anarchy Reigns but the character’s more of a pretty boy than an old guy / tough guy.

  • Ouryu

    Morikawa’s voice is awesome for Leon and Dante.

  • eilegz

    so they dont even bundle the dlc on the disc… sigh capcom
