Given the release for the game is getting closer, I've decided to open up a poll, due to the fact we will be getting dual audio for this game, as the form of DLC.
My question to you guys is what audio language will you guys be playing this game in on your first playthrough?
For the record, I would like to try and keep "weeaboo" comments kept to a minimum (if not all together) in this topic. I do not want this to become a flaming ground.
As for me? I'm planning on going with the Japanese audio, at least through my first playthrough of the game. Given that I've played through the series through the Chinese and Japanese versions, I figured it would make sense to finish the series off with playing with the original Japanese audio. That, and I generally have a preference to the Japanese voice cast and the American version is cheaper than straight importing the Japanese release.
Not to discredit the English cast, all the performances of all the games in English were pretty strong, except Hope's voice. I'm not sure if it's the voice actor's fault or the director's fault, but with the first game, it felt very flat. Not totally pleased with it on the second game, but it did sound a bit better there.
I'm french speaking, but they rarely include french language in games except for subtitles. Maybe more in Europe, but Québec has standard north american releases except for the boxes that are bilingual.
