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.)
TELL ME WAT YOU ALL THINK!!!
are htese voices going to be the same ones for the english shippuuden version?
Well, like I said before, the voices in the games aren't necessarily going to be the ones in the anime (i.e Tsunade: Debi Mae West= Voice actor in anime/ Mary Elizabeth McGlynn= Voice actor in games.) We can't know for sure! But I think both Deidara voices sound good in their own way! And Sasori's isn't bad either!
