Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition Game Replaces Troy Baker as Yuri for Additional Scenes
posted on by Karen Ressler
Voice actor Troy Baker said on Twitter on Friday that he was not approached to record extra lines for the character Yuri Lowell in Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition. Baker voiced the character in the original edition of the game, and added that he would have "jumped at the chance" to play the character again. He made the Tweet in response to a gameplay video showing new scenes with a different voice for Yuri.
....wow. Yeah, had no idea about this. Was never approached to do any additional lines/scenes. Pretty gutted, to be honest. Love this character so much, would've jumped at the chance to step into those boots again. https://t.co/nwDqJGAoWH— Troy Baker (@TroyBakerVA) September 21, 2018
The game is a remastered version of Bandai Namco Entertainment's Tales of Vesperia role-playing game. The game will include both English and Japanese voice-overs, as well as content from the Japanese PlayStation 3 release available for the first time in English, such as Patty Fleur and Flynn Schifo as party members. The game will also include new scenarios, locations, and costumes.
Bandai Namco Entertainment will release the game for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam in the Americas, Europe, and Japan on January 11.
The original Tales of Vesperia role-playing game shipped for Xbox 360 in 2008, and it then received a PlayStation 3 release in Japan in 2009. The PS3 version added full voice acting, the new character Patty Fleur, and the character Flynn Schifo as a party member, as well as additional dungeons, bosses, and Gigant monsters.
