Kizaru was in World Seeker, so who voiced him in that? Ryotaro Okiayu or someone else?

Tomokazu Sugita probably will take over as old Joseph Joestar now in any future games or appearances.

Wonder who will be Mister Satan now?
Really sad still, Unsho wasn't that old really.

Maybe they will cast Akio Õtsuka since his tone is similar to unshõ's

And Okiayu did an amazing job as Kizaru. He sounds almost exactly like Ishizuka, though slightly deeper. He once again surprised me with his range.

I second this. I actually thought he was gonna succeed Borsalino, but well, Okiayu is equally unique and talented as well. RIP to Ishizuka, a legend.

Here is my choice for an recast of his roles:
Old Joseph Joestar: Rintaro Nishi
Mister Satan: Masashi Ebara
Gene Smilas: Akio Otsuka
Ginzou Nakamori: Shuichi Ikeda
Heiji Kozenigata: Kenta Miyake
Father Miaya: Masaharu Sato
Bunta Fujiwara: Akio Otsuka

I'm still going to hedge my bets that Tomokazu Sugita takes over old Joseph Joestar considering he already did him for one game and the ending of Battle Tendency.

Bunta Fujiwara's probably going to be Hiroaki Hirata considering he voiced him in that remake movie trilogy.

I'm just tickled that you know about veteran, reeeeeally old-school seiyuu. Nishi, Ebara, and Satou Masaharu are not names people mention every day.

I can't see Ikeda voicing Nakamori because he already voices Kaito's dad but Ebara sounds pretty good to me. Maybe even closer to Gouri's voice than Ishizuka's.

Ikeda already voices the father of the titular character in Magic Kaito, and Shuichi Akai in Detective Conan, I don't think this would work too well.
That being said, Nakamori shows up briefly in movie 23 and he speaks a little but I'm not sure who voiced him in that.

Update: Ahh it's apparently Koji Ishii.

I'm kinda impressed given that Okiayu has a more youthful voice and doesn't have that "badass old man" vibe.
