New FINAL FANTASY XV Video Puts Spotlight on the Voice Cast

This fall, Square Enix’s most epic title returns with Final Fantasy XV, bringing fans of the long-running series into the world of two warring nations: Lucis and Niflheim. The release date for Final Fantasy XV was recently pushed back to give the developers time to refine the game, but now gamers are getting an advance look at the newest heroes, and at least one of the villains.

Square Enix has posted a video that throws the spotlight on Final Fantasy XV‘s English voice cast, which includes Ray ChaseRobbie DaymondAmy ShielsChris ParsonAdam CroasdellJim PirriDarin De Paul, and even Critical Role‘s Matt Mercer. And while all of the featured performers had an opportunity to speak about their roles in this clip, gamers may appreciate the chance to get a better idea about the characters they will encounter in the game.

De Paul seemed to particularly relish playing Āden Izunia, the chancellor of Niflheim, and he was also the only actor in this group to reprise his role from Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV.  For the game, Shiels is taking over the role of Lunafreya Nox Fleuret from Kingsglaive‘s Lena Headey, while Pirri will step in for Sean Bean as King Regis, the ruler of Lucis who reluctantly agrees to terms of peace with Niflheim. But that peace is not going to last.

Chase’s Noctis Lucis Caelum got a pretty big part of this video, since he’ll be the game’s main character. However, the clip also allowed Daymond to flesh out his character, Prompto Argentum. It offered the same opportunity for Parson and Croasdell to expand upon their respective characters, Gladiolus Amicitia and Ignis Scientia. As for Mercer, he’ll be portraying Cor Leonis, the former Lord Commander of Lucis’ Crownsguard who acts as a mentor to the other heroic characters.

Final Fantasy XV will be released on November 29.
