Remember Tokyo Game Show earlier this year, where Square Enix released their recent Final Fantasy XV trailer? At the time, it seemed like the game would be similar to that of a road trip with your bros, just smacking enemies down whenever they came across your automobile. A “Bro’d Trip,” if you will. Now that non-canon narrative can more easily land in the minds of those in English-speaking countries, as Square Enix have released a re-dubbed version of the TGS trailer using the English Voice Over talent for Final Fantasy XV.

The results: predictably, the audience for a Japanese RPG wants to hear the game’s voice acting on with the original Japanese voice talent. Predictable weeaboo tendencies aside, Final Fantasy XV’s voices in English don’t sound nearly as awful as they are being made out to be. It has been a long 13 years since Square Enix first incorporated English VA into their games (or voice acting at all), first starting out with Final Fantasy X. Removing the Tidus laugh from the equation (which is taken out of context in the first place), the English versions of Final Fantasy games have received more than decent voice acting work. Final Fantasy XV looks to continue that trend.
If you’re craving to get your hands on Final Fantasy XV, the opportunity to try out the demo will first become available via the first printing of Final Fantasy Type-0, be it in the Collector’s Edition or standard. Whether or not the demo will be available to play immediately at launch is yet to be seen, but the game will become available here in North America on March 17th, for the PS4 and Xbox One. Final Fantasy XV will also be available on PS4 and Xbox One, with a release date (or even window) yet to be confirmed.
