Gamers in the West who prefer to have their JRPGs have the voice acting in the original Japanese with English subtitles, that won't be available in the Western releases of God Eater: Resurrection and God Eater 2: Rage Burst. This odd decision was revealed in an interview with producer Yusuke Tomizawa and director Hiroshi Yoshimura.
When asked about localization of the games for the West, Yoshimura responded, " All the Japanese voices will be localised into English, and you will have subtitles as well." then added if it was possible to have Japanese voices with English subtitles, "It’s just going to be pure English." No reason was given.
On other note, Yoshimura was asked about how detailed character creation was. "Okay, so the characters you see are dressed in uniforms, and there many fun options that you can play around with online, there’s plenty of depth," he described. "You can change your eye color, skin color, hair, facial features — there’s quite a bit of variation. It’s not just visuals, either; you can also adjust the voices that will feature during the cutscenes, and this will allow players to really feel a part of the story." He added that weapon customization was also a major part of the game.
God Eater: Resurrection and God Eater 2: Rage Burst were announced for PC yesterday by Bandai Namco.
