His voice is fine.

Not black enough? Lol... All inclusive reset era at their finest.

Not to mention he needs to have curly hair as well for them, even though Final Fantasy races never actually corresponded to reality (since most characters are a mix of asian + european traits, like some uralic or siberian peoples).

As in skin color? Or do they actually want him to talk Ebonics?

Skin color. Someone even claimed he looks like a germanic tanned dude (WTF?).

Reset era is the worst fucking fórum ever, the amouny of stupidity, hate, outrage, harrasment you see There is crazy, they have some serious mental problems Over There.

About this thread, reminds me why i dont post anymore on Here, its like people dont get tired of vomiting the same complains Over and Over. People knows for Four years combate is not Turn based and its going to BE probably tree parts , we fucking get it, you Will not play it, go play the original and shut the hell up already, square does not care ,its time to move on with your life and stop derailing threads with the same bitching and moaning , go spread your miserie and hate Somewhere else.



 

agreed

Maybe Jax should go back in time to 1997 and tell square to get woke

I think it's more a case of Barrett being a bulkier character hence he has a rougher voice. And is Japan really in charge of hiring the English voice actors?

That's an excellent question. I'd imagine that they outsource it to a casting agency, and Square Enix looks at the final product when it's completed. I don't "think" SE does motion capture with their voice acting like Naughty Dog and other studios, they just wipe the Japanese dialogue that was already recorded and the localization department who's in charge of English dialogue does the rest.

That'd be a good thing to Google.

If it is done by a separate studio that's located in the states, then Barrets stereotypical voice is even more shameful. That's just me though, I realize everyone isn't unhappy with his voice.

Regardless, SE's HQ in Japan undoubtedly looks and officially approves of the final results of the English localization.

If Square Enix aren't the ones responsible for the final product of the English voice over, then I'll be at a loss for words... 

I think you're being silly: plenty of heftier characters get the deeper, rougher voices.

From the look of things, Barrett seems like a heavier character.

Shamefull to who?

I think this voice fits his character perfectly,i don't think it's stereotypical at all because it suits his background and attitude shown in the script.



I just got to see the Japanese version, and I now have some concerns with some of the English voices.

Here's a comparison video.

In most cases it's just that the Japanese version sounds better, like the guards, and Cloud, which could be fine. I have no issues with Biggs in either version. Barret sounds similar in both versions as well.
But I'm concerned about Aerith and Sephiroth in particular. Her somewhat lifeless approach sounds similar to the Aerith from Kingdom Hearts II, and I really hope it's not the same person. She sounded like she was half asleep most of the time. Her Jp voice is much more expressive. Sephiroth's EN voice I just don't like. Especially when compared to Toshiyuki Morikawa's performance.
And Cloud is of course once again voiced by the phenomenal Takahiro Sakurai.

Jesse is one of the characters I'm mostly looking forward to seeing in this game, so I really hope they get her right. And I'm not digging the En voice so far. Especially when compared to the Jp one, and how she expressed the term ご 苦労様. I think I know how she's going to be portrayed in Japanese, and that's exactly the type of personality I was hoping she'd have.

I think I have no choice but to get the Japanese version unless Square are nice enough to give us the option for Jp voices.
I'd pay for that DLC in fact.

Really looking forward to next month seeing people talk about Tifa's breast size getting reduced, even if they haven't been.



I actually think all the voices fit perfectly, after reading these latest comments I decided to rewatch it and my opinion hasn't changed, I love the voices for everyone in the trailer... and all I have to say about people complaining about Barret's voice (And apparently skin colour?!) is; wot.

This is the complaint for the trailer? Barrett's voice? Sad times. There will be DLC/pre-order stuff and microtransaction, 3 games where there should be one and the wrong gameplay but sure "Barrett doesn't speak right."

Something to lighten the mood, I didn't realise Jessie was a girl until like my 3rd playthrough.

I’ve played it like 15 times and never figured that out until I just read that here... the things you learn... also another reason why it needs to be remade... (sad that it has to be square to remake it, they obviously don’t know what they are doing)
