I know some of you out there are just ACHING to hear the new voices for your favorite characters and how they've grown! Well, I've also got the official voices for the new akatsuki members to the game:
Deidara: Roger Craig Smith (Voiced Temujin in 2nd movie, and played Towa and Bando in Clash of Ninja Revolution 2)
Sasori (Hiruko Puppet): JB Blanc (Voiced Pakkun)
Be in mind that this does NOT mean this will be their voice in the actual anime, because as we can tell from Tsunade's voice actor Debi Mae West, that sometimes the Anime voice actor may not voice the character in the games (Mary Elizabeth McGlynn played Tsunade in previous Ultimate Ninja games.)
You can see videos and hear their voices on youtube! If you've heard them, reply here and tell everyone what you think!
I think Deidara's voice actor is great, but doesn't give that sinister sound to him like Quinton Flynn (Iruka) gave him!
Sasori's puppet voice sounds perfect to me, but a lot of ppl are angry becuz they think that voice will also be his true form voice too, so they say the voice is horrible. Remember, voice actors can change!
Sakura's voice sounds a little older then before, as its not as high as it used to be, and trust me, she will be one for the characters you'll wanna play the most! (Note: Sakura's moveset has been changed completely in the game from the others due to her training with tsunade.)
well of course they wont stay as their voices in the anime, its like how they did in ultimate ninja 1 where they have some1 else playing jiraya but then we got DAVID LODGE xD tehehehe
neways um sasori in hirukos voice is kinda lame if u ask m cause the seiyu for sasori in hiruko gives that distinct "killer" voice while the guy whos doing sasori in hiruko trys to but id say steven blumm shud do sasorii in hiruko cause well steven blumm is every these days xD but as well we all know that when he does wolverines voice its just vicious and couldnt be played by any1 better
sakuras move set for sure is better than her pts form but her jutsus arent reallly all that good
imma play as ts naruto of course then ts neji than pts sasuke then the akatsuki =)
LordItachi145 makes a good point, Steven blum wud sound good for him, and I do love how he plays wolverine in X-Men Legends and in the new show Wolverine and the X-Men. However, I do say JB Blanc does sound decent, 6.5 out of 10 at best! BTW who here has heard Chiyo! XD OMFG when I heard her shes sounds so funny, i didnt think they were gonna make her voice so high pitched. If Im right, I think her VA is Barbara Goodson! She's perfect for the role, she just needs to lower her pitch a lil bit
Well, In the english dub trailer for Naruto Shippuden, Naruto's voice was a lil deeper and more raspier! I dont think Maile Flanagan will disappoint us! However, I still worry about how theyre gonna make the akatsuki sound! O.o
