Who loves a well-controlled video game leak? I know I do and thanks to ATLUS, yes they send us e-mails letting us know of new information to the latest titles coming out. See gamers, that is considered controlled shared information as you should know already. There is new information for the upcoming Persona 5 title regarding the main English dubbed voice actors and a Q & A session video. SO exciting, let’s take a look.
We’re the Phantom Thieves of Hearts and we’re ready to leak some news about Persona 5! We’ve discovered who the main English voice actors are and have stolen all of their marketing videos from the ATLUS vault. It wouldn’t be right in our eyes to keep this information, so how about we share it with the world? I know it sounds weird since we’ll be revealing our identities, but that’s just how we roll. So without further ado, meet the “heroes” of Persona 5:
- Xander Mobus as the protagonist
- Cassandra Morris as Morgana
- Max Mittelman as Ryuji Sakamoto
- Erika Harlacher as Ann Takamaki
- Matt Mercer as Yusuke Kitagawa
- Cherami Leigh as Makoto Niijima
- Erica Lindbeck as Futaba Sakura
- Xanthe Huynh as Haru Okumura
- Robbie Daymond as Goro Akechi
The protagonist seems to have a problem with the adults, but in a way, it is all good. There is nothing more flattering than a hero who is also a rebel. A typical Shujin Academy student by day and by night he is the leader of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts, codenamed “The Joker.” It is a nice twist to see a playing card character as a hero instead of a villain. As promised, see below a Q & A video with Xander Mobus, the English voice actor as the protagonist.
I know a few Persona fans are looking forward to this title that will release on February 14th, 2017. In the meantime, you can win yourself a copy of Persona 5 autographed by Character Designer Shigenori Soejima. Check out this link to enter for that right now.
