Greetings gamers! I got some interesting news to share with you in regards to the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake video game. It’s not about the story or gameplay, but does involve with the characters and their voices. According to a tweet I found and I found an article from DualShockers, it’s been revealed that English Dub for the Final Fantasy VII characters will get an updated cast. This means that long time voice actor Steve Burton who voices Cloud Strife will be replaced with another actor.
Some of these people have worked in TV shows, video games and movies.
- Cloud, voiced by Cody Christian (All American, Teen Wolf)
- Barret, voiced by John Eric Bentley (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Independence Day: Resurgence)
- Aerith, voiced by Briana White (Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, Occupants)
- Tifa, voiced by Britt Baron (GLOW)
- Jessie, voiced by Erica Lindbeck (Spider-Man, Persona 5, ThunderCats Roar)
- Biggs, voiced by Gideon Emery (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Teen Wolf)
- Wedge, voiced by Matt Jones (Breaking Bad)
- Sephiroth, voiced by Tyler Hoechlin
Cody Christian will be replacing Steve Burton as Cloud Strife; the most recent work Steve Burton did as Cloud was in Dissidia Final Fantasy NT in 2018. Tyler Hoechlin will be the third English voice actor for Sephiroth; the first actor was was Lang Bass in Kingdom Hearts (KH1) and then voiced by George Newbern in later titles like Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, Dissidia titles and Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII. Tifa’s previous voice actor was Rachael Leigh Cook. Aerith has a total of four voice actress; the first voice she was given was Mandy Moore from Kingdom Hearts and then later Mena Suvari in Kingdom Hearts II and the movie Advent Children. Andrea Bowen did her voice in Crisis Core, Final Fantasy Explorers and Dissidia 012. Barret’s original voice actor was Beau Billingslea who did his voice for Advent Children and the spinoff game featuring Vincent called Dirge of Cerberus.
Anyway, what is your thoughts on the changes? Final Fantasy VII Remake is set to be released on March 3, 2020.
