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.

It the post, I mentioned that Nomura is working hard on both Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII Remake. He is giving 100% on both games and is willing to do overtime.

With E3 2018 concluding, we got to see some amazing video games. Companies like Square Enix revealed some exciting new games like Kingdom Hearts III, an Xbox One version of NieR: Automata, and a Switch version of The World Ends With You: Final Remix. However, Square did not show any videos or news of the planned video game Final Fantasy VII Remake. However! According to the game director Tetsuya Nomura, who is also directing Kingdom Hearts III, made a comment on Final Fantasy VII Remake. In his own words, he said that the work in Final Fantasy VII Remake and Kingdom Hearts III is “parallel”. If he is not busy with Kingdom Hearts III, he is working on Final Fantasy VII Remake. Here is what he is said:
“It’s not just in the early concept stages. We are actually in development. So right now, I’ve been putting 100 percent into Kingdom Hearts and 100 percent into Final Fantasy 7 and 100 percent into Kingdom Hearts and going back and forth.”
He also commented that he is putting a lot of work into FFVII Remake and he is content with overtime hours.
“I don’t get fatigued by that at all.” It’s really fun for me to do. I actually don’t like human relationships more than just work, so I just want to focus on work and creating things if I don’t have to deal with human relationships. It’s actually a little bit easier for me to do than not working.”
“I do need fans to play my games, to be able to create it, and so fans are definitely a factor to motivate me to keep on going.”
