I got some sad news for Dragon Ball fans. This weekend, we were hit with tragic news in regards to the voice acting industry. The Spanish voice actor of Gohan from Dragon Ball was killed on Saturday. The voice actor is named Luis Alfonso Mendoza and he was the age of 55 when he died.
According to IGN, Mendoza was killed by a man during an altercation with renting living space. To make matters worse, the suspect not only killed Mendoza, but he also killed his wife and brother-in-law. The suspect tried to commit suicide by shooting himself, but ultimately failed and left him in critical condition and still alive.
Mendoza has voiced Gohan since 1996 and he has voiced many cartoon characters such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Leonardo from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He also did Spanish Dubs for live-action shows such as Carlton from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Joey from Friends.

Red XII not playable in Final Fantasy VII Remake?
Fans of the classic game will remember Red XIII. Red XIII becomes a party member for Cloud for his friends after saving Aerith from Shinra. Even though the recent trailers revealed that Red XIII will be in this game, he will not be playable. Here is what co-director Naoki Hamaguchi said:
“We felt the point at which Red XIII joins the party in the story is very late on so we thought okay, if we’re gonna have him as a full character and try and get the player to enjoy his character development arc and growth as a character through that, it’s not really enough time to do that.”
According to IGN, Red XIII will be played as an AI guest character in the last portion of the Final Fantasy VII Remake story. Players can customize his moves and allow the computer to perform attacks from the classic game. Currently, there is no confirmed news that Red XIII will be playable in the next Final Fantasy VII Remake game.
