Bravely Second’s Voice Cast Is Full Of Shining Stars

Though we’re still not sure what the adventure of Bravely Second holds for us, we know for a fact that it sports a stellar voice acting cast.

Bravely Second debuts at last in the west on April 15th, but we already know the full voice actor roster based on the European localization. The first game in the series, Bravely Default, already sported a stellar cast of voice actors and actresses, and the upcoming sequel adds even more faces to the roster who should be familiar to anyone who has played an RPG or watched anime in recent years.

Immediately notable are some of the leads. The “Three Cavaliers” trio who initially set out on Bravely Second’s adventure is lead by Michael Sinterniklaas (Dynasty Warriors 7 & 8, Xenoblade Chronicles X) as main character Yew Geneologia (he also reprises his role as Jackal from Bravely Default!). Amanda Winn Lee (Persona 4,  Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga, .hack//OUTBREAK) joins the team as Magnolia Arch, along with Cassandra Lee Morris (Xenoblade Chronicles X, Dead or Alive 5) and Bryce Papenbrook (Xenoblade Chronicles X, Shin Megami Tensei IV) reprising their roles as Edea Lee and Tiz Arrior, respectively, on their quest to save Erin Fitzgerald (Xenoblade Chronicles X, Persona 4) returning as Agnes Oblige.

Here’s a partial roster of all the other new faces you can expect to see in Luxendarc this April:

  • Janne Angard – Tony Azzolino (NBA 2K12, NBA 2K11)
  • Nikolai Nikolanikov – Jamieson Price (Mortal Kombat X, Fire Emblem: Awakening, Tales of the Abyss)
  • Kaiser Oblivion – Cam Clarke (Fire Emblem: Fates, Tales of Symphonia, World of Warcraft)
  • Anne – Eden Riegel (Xenoblade Chronicles X, Persona 4)
  • Aimee Matchlock – Colleen O’Shaughnessey (Various Sonic and Naruto games, Tales of Symphonia)
  • Minnete Goroneze – Sandy Fox (Tales of the Abyss, various .hack// games)
  • Norzen – Alan Shearman (Dragon’s Dogma, Dynasty Warriors 7  8)
  • Geist – Grant George (Dead or Alive 5, Soul Caliber V)

Plus, plenty of other roles will be reprised from Bravely Default, resulting in a highly-experienced and well-known cast of voice actors and actresses who are sure to bring the next chapter in the story of Luxendarc’s Warriors of Light to life. Many of them starred very recently in other RPGs, with a good chunk of them coming recently from Xenoblade Chronicles. I’m especially impressed with Cam Clarke–this and his lead role in Fire Emblem: Fates released right around the same time. Also, I’m in a tizzy over hearing Kratos Aurion’s voice again in a game!

Bravely Second releases in North America for Nintendo 3DS on April 15th–it is already out in Japan and Europe.
