Konami Wraps Voice Acting Recording For Lords Of Shadow
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is slated to release this fall and now, it appears we're one step closer to cementing that date.
David Cox just told everyone at his Twitter page that voice recordings for the game are "now complete." Now, in case you weren't already aware, Konami and MercurySteam are addressing the fact that past entries in the series haven't exactly provided us with top-notch voice acting. The voice cast for Lords of Shadow is indeed impressive; the most important roles will be filled by Robert Carlyle (Gabriel), Natascha McElhone (Marie), Jason Isaacs (not sure yet, but he's there), and oh yes, let's not forget Sir Patrick Stewart as both Zobek the Mentor and the Narrator. Combined with a new score by composer Óscar Araujo, this is one production that should shine when it comes to presentation and sound. We really want to see more gameplay - fall isn't that far off, you know - but we're certainly hoping to see some footage at E3 next month. In the meantime, we'll just be happy that voice acting has really spiked in quality this generation; it has become a supremely important facet of the interactive experience.
Could we be looking at the first AAA 3D Castlevania? Heck, why not? We've waited long enough by now, haven't we?
