Persona 5, the long awaited next installment into the Persona franchise, returns next year within Europe and to give fans a ‘peek’ at the upcoming English Dub ATLUS, along with European distributor Koch Media / Deep Silver, have released a selection of trailers along with a partial cast announcement for the English Dub itself.
The English dub is being supervised by the long-time Persona series project lead in the Americas, Yu Namba, and as Yu explains ATLUS take a lot of pride in making sure that their dubs sound as good as they can possibly be.
“We at Atlus U.S.A. take pride in the quality and care we put into casting and dubbing for our games, and Persona 5 is no exception. This is a completely new cast of characters, so we started with a blank slate in bringing life to them with our stellar cast of voice actors. It’s hard saying goodbye to the cast of previous Persona games, but we hope to bring an entirely new tone with a new set of actors for this game.”
Quotations aside the following cast have been announced for the English Dub 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
In addition to the ‘partial’ English Dub cast list ATLUS went on to unveil two videos; one which features brief audio of Xander as the protagonist and another with sees PR Manager Jon Hardin talking to Xander about his role as the protagonist in Persona 5.
