Man will it be a challenge to localize this or what? While we are on the subject do you think they will just keep the Japanese voice overs and just translate the English text? Based on the treehouse event it was hard enough for them to find VA that could both voice the characters and sing as well. Imagine not only translating the lyrics and language but doing the same thing in English.

Most dubs of ATLUS games are pretty good, and I feel that Laura Bailey (who did both Rise from P4 and Lucina in FEA) did a pretty good job dubbing some of Rise's singing in P4G. Wendee Lee and Cristina Vee are also excellent voice actresses who can sing as well.

I still don't envy the task of having to localize it. Do you think they will keep the original Japanese main theme/songs (the one from the second trailer) or will they have them translated into English? That in itself could be difficult just because of the general feel of the music on the gameplay since its apparently an important element to the game. I know next to nothing about the Japanese language but I'm willing to put money on alot of the lyrics not being able to be directly translated into English leading to words having to be reordered or even parts of the song rewritten for it to make sense which could also cause problems in the original rhythem and beat of the song. As much as I prefer English dubs for a number of reasons this might actually be a title that I could understand/prefer the Japanese voice over but with English text so I know whats going on.

Unless they think they can do it well, I think the localizing team will leave musical parts alone. Unless the song has particular significance or is simple then they might dub it.

I'd be 250% okay with playing the game subtitled...

It actually kind of irks me when voice clips get translated from japanese to english and the dub absolutely destroys the original's intentions. *glares at NOA's Nah...*

Yeah in fact, Rise's voice in Japanese is horrible, and Laura Bailey was a huge improvement.

Altus is usually awesome with English dubs, though I wasn't too hot on the SMT IV VA.

Best Fire Emblem Girl and Best Tokyo Ghoul Girl sharing a voice actor? Definitely want to check this game out now. Oh and it is Fueguchi not Yueguchi.

Fixed.

I also like how the one idol that has actual experience is being voiced by the actress who has experience playing idol characters.

Whoa, it seems like there are a lot of big name voice actors here, well, at least I think. I don't know any of these people but I've heard of some those anime and that's saying something considering I'm such a casual anime watcher.

Every male character is voiced by a Kuroko VA so far, let's keep that up...

I'm pretty sure that NoA is going to localize and dub the songs. Like, 75% sure.

As long as the VA can carry a tune, I'll be fine with it, I'm not expecting Beyonce. But I'll be pretty dissappointed if they kept the singing with the japanese VAs

I'd be 250% okay with playing the game subtitled...

It actually kind of irks me when voice clips get translated from japanese to english and the dub absolutely destroys the original's intentions. *glares at NOA's Nah...*

But on the other hand... NoA Henry.

Third most popular character in the west, can't argue with those results.

But out of curiosity, how is Nah in the japanese version.

Personally, I think there are plenty of English VA's that can act and sing.

Laura Bailey, Christina Vee, Wendee Lee, Kate Higgins, Rena Strober, Johnny Yong Bosch, Troy Baker, Vic Magnonga, Cam Clarke, Melissa Fahn

And those are just off the top of my head. There are surely others.

Not!Personas I mean Performas

They are called Mirages. Performa is just your creative energy, and more similar to Magicite in SMT than anything in the Persona series.

Where did this misconception start? Did people just hear the word "Performa" and assume that's what Mirages were called with no base other than "It sounds kinda like Persona"?

You know, given how a lot of J-Pop is so heavily influenced by American pop, it really shouldn't be that hard to slightly rewrite and dub.

Newbies for the recently revealed characters:

Barry Goodman

-Yuuichi Nakamura: Ryouma (Fire Emblem: Fates), Hazama/Yuuki Terumi (Blazblue), Gray Fullbuster (Fairy Tail), Mumen Rider (One-Punch Man), Narciso Annasui (Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle), Kurt Irving (Valkyria Chronicles III/Project X Zone0). Also, he's the best friend of Chrom's VA, Tomokazu Sugita

Mamori Minamoto

-Kaori Fukuhara: Tsukasa Hiiragi (Lucky Star), Pearl Fey (Ace Attorney)

Nothing on the Mirages, but more than likely Tharja and Virion's VA's will return. I am interested in who they would get to play Draug. I'm hoping for someone like Hiroki Yasumoto or Kenta Miyake.

Where did you get this info? I checked the official site earlier today and there were no changes.
