Master Xehanort's Voice Actor in the new trailer.

Recommended Posts

Now that we've had ample time to register the godly juicyness that was the new KHIII trailer, there's something I gotta point out.

 

After watching the trailer again and again and again (still not tired of wathcing it, btw), and listening to his voice, there's a few things I gotta ask...

 

1. Do my ears deceive me... or did Master Xehanort's voice sound an AWFUL LOT like Chikao Otsuka?

 

2. If the above is true, and that is Chikao Otsuka, does that mean he recorded his lines before his passing?

 

3. If the above statement is ALSO true... does that mean there's a chance Leonard Nimoy recorded his lines before his passing as well?

Although he sounds QUITE A LOT like Chikao-san, there are noticeable differences but the new actor (if there is one) is making a great job! I wonder how they'll handle for Nimoy...

I said before and I’ll say it again; I’d love Christopher Loyd (for a voice very similar to Nimoy) or Robert Eunglund (for a orginal take like Epcar did as ansem).

Very wishful thinking but unlikely given voice acting is done quite late into the Making of this kinda stuff..

You are right it would mean that nomura had thought out the story all the while back since 2012 which i found very VERY hard to believe. Me personally i hope they can find someone that Sounds like nimoy after all the deep voice is indistinguishable fron the original

No. It's a voice double. Japanese companies do this all the time when an actor retires or dies or is otherwise unavailable to record their lines. In English, it's going to be a voice double too. Who, we can't say until we see an official cast list, but It's going to be someone who can simulate Nimoy's voice like this new actor is doing for Otsuka.

I love Christopher Lloyd, but I can't imagine him as Master Xehanort. Englund could be good... but my favourite choise is Lance Henriksen.
