Akiba’s Beat English Dub is the Biggest in XSEED’s History, Cast Revealed

At the AkibaFest this weekend, XSEED Games confirmed that its upcoming action RPG, Akiba’s Beat, will be getting an English dub and dual voice. Apparently, this will be the “biggest” dub in the company’s history with almost 22,000 loops. We’re also told that a vast majority of the dialog will be voiced. “We worked with tons of talented to make this happen,” wrote XSEED. The cast is as follows: Asahi Tachibana – Chris Patton Saki Hoshino – Erica Mendez Riyu Momose – Tia Ballard Yamato Hongo – Robbie Daymond Kotomi Sanada – Cherami Leigh Kuehn Reiji Shinomiya – Edward Bosco Mizuki Aihara – Ray Chase Pinkun – Brittney Karbowski Boss – Mick Wingert Kanon – Todd Haberkorn And this is just scratching the surface since there are at least 180 voiced roles, according to Localization Editor Kris Knigge who also revealed that he’s been working on the project for the past two months. Perhaps, that’s one of the reasons why the game was delayed to Q1 2017. [Source: Kris Knigge, XSEED Games (Twitter)] READ FULL STORY AT PLAYSTATIONLIFESTYLE!
