Forums - Gaming Discussion - Nina and Anna Williams should have Irish accents.

This is one of the things I don't like about Tekken. Nina and Anna are supposed to be Irish yet they always have Americans voicing them. Should it be that hard to find Irish voice artists?

Around the Network

There are Irish Americans, though, and the proper voice trainer/director can make magic happen. Sadly, the localization team probably isn't based in Britain (hence the American VAs), and they probably aren't going to get the budget necessary for proper voice direction.



Aren't they basically action movie spys? So they probably know multiple languages making them the few that actually should be able to understand most of the other characters in the series lol

As someone who is Irish it shouldn't matter either way. This is the same nonsense as hollywood 'whitewashing' or black men not being able to play asain men or vice versa like in death note.

None of it matters if the work of art is good at the end of the day. For example, full metal alchemists live action reimaging was ruined because of this line of thought by taking obviously european characters from the anime and making them Japanese to off set any backlash.

Let the people who creat the work have the freedom they need and if you don't like the end result for such a petty reason, don't buy it or don't play it. They don't owe you anything nor should they have to worry about appeasing every little detail when on a budget.

I'm pretty sure that was because it was a Japanese film rather than because of "backlash" or whatever. I mean, how many Europeans do you know of in the Japanese film industry that speak fluent Japanese?
