Tragic News: voice actor Unsho Ishizuka passes away

It has come to my attention that there is bad news in the anime community. An anime voice actor named Unsho Ishizuka passed away this Monday due to esophageal cancer. According to ANN, he was modern age 67, but in traditional Japanese age he is 68. Aoni Production, an agency that represents Japanese voice actors and entertainers, stated that Ishizuka was given medical treatment before his passing, but it all became ineffective. If you don’t know who he is well-known for, he did the Japanese voice dub for well-known characters in anime such as Joseph Joestar in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures: Stardust Crusaders and Diamond is Unbreakable, Hercule in Dragon Ball Z and Super, Professor Oak in Pokemon and even the iconic fighter Heihachi in the Tekken video game series.

In recent news of ANN, Tokyo TV recently announced that there are some recorded audio compiled and ready for future Pokemon Sun and Moon episodes with Unsho Ishizuka already in it. These recorded episodes with him will be premiered on Japanese public TVs until late October. These are the last recorded audio of him.

It looks we’re going to hit some bumps on the road because I got some surprising news to share.

The anticipated remastered collection game Spyro Reignited Trilogy won’t be coming out this September, but instead it will be out this November 13th of this year. According to game developers “Toys For Bob”, the game needs some “love and care.”

Co-head of Toys For Bob Paul Yan commented on this news on the Activision blog:

“We’re deeply committed to getting these games right, so we’ve decided to move the release date of Spyro Reignited Trilogy to November 13, 2018. I really hoped that you would be rescuing dragons and scorching Rhynocs sooner, but the Trilogy needs more love and care. In November when you’re exploring the Dragon Realms, Avalar and the Forgotten Worlds, we know you’ll agree the extra time was worth the wait.”

What do you think about this news?

Spyro Reignited Trilogy will now be releasing on November 13th, 2018 for PS4 and Xbox One.
