The official website for the upcoming new video game, Mighty No. 9, from Mega Man franchis co-creator and producer Keiji Inafune has announced the full English voice cast for the title. The voice-over work from the game was recorded at Rocket Sound in Los Angeles, CA in December, and the game features an all-star lineup of voice-over talent from many amazing veterans. So it sounds like the game will be fully voiced.
Director Kinshi Ikegami and Sound Director Yamada Ippo from Inti Creates took part in the American recording sessions straight from Japan. Here is the full English voice cast for the game:
- Mighty No. 1 Pyrogen: Matt Mercer
- Mighty No. 2 Cryosphere: Paige King
- Mighty No. 3 Dynatron: Jan Johns
- Mighty No. 4 Seismic: Fred Tatasciore
- Mighty No. 5 Battalion: Brian. T. Delaney
- Mighty No. 6 Aviator: Mick Wingert
- Mighty No. 7 Brandish: JP Karliak
- Mighty No. 8 Countershade: Steve Blum
- Mighty No. 9 Beck: Yuri Lowenthal
- Call: Julie Nathanson
- Dr. White: Jason Spisak
- Dr. Sanda: Dave Wittenberg
- Seijiro Sanda: Dave Wittenberg
- Mr. Graham: Scott Whyte
- Dr. Blackwell: Bob Joles
So Beck will be voiced by the fantastic Yuri Lowenthal, whose credits include game franchises such as the Prince in Prince of Persia, Ben Tennyson aka Ben 10 in several of the Ben 10 animated cartoons, Sasuke Uchiha in Naruto and Barnaby Brooks Jr. aka Bunny in Tiger & Bunny. The cast is full of other notable voice talents including Steve Blum as Countershade and Fred Tatasciore as Seismic. Steve Blum is known for the voice of Wolverine in numerous Marvel Animation projects. Fred Tatasciore stars as the Hulk in Avengers Assemble and Hulk and the Agents of SMASH.
Considering Digital Frontier is also developing a Mighty No. 9 animated series, it will be interesting to see if the game’s English voice cast will be carried over for the animated series too. Mighty No. 9 is scheduled for an April release for a multi-platform release.
