Final Fantasy XII’s self proclaimed “leading man” shares something in common with Vanquish, Sega’s hi-speed third person shooter. Gideon Emery, Balthier’s voice actor, plays the role of Sam Gideon in Vanquish.
“He has an incredible smoldering quality to his voice that I find really cool,” Shinji Mikami, Director, wrote. Mikami is “hooked” on the English voice of Sam. Just in case you aren’t, Vanquish also has Japanese voice acting.
