Before I continue, I do hope you guys have read this post. Now onto the news at hand!
The voice talent for the X-Men Destiny game has been announced & it boasts of some pretty familiar names, but these are just for the 3 main playable characters:
Heroes' Milo Ventimiglia as Grant Alexander. Now this seems to be a more suitable fit than him voicing Wolverine for the Wolverine anime show! It seems like he's on Marvel's Fave Voice-over Actors list now!
Sucker Punch's Jamie Chung as Aimi Yoshida.
Friday Night Lights' Scott Porter as Adrian Luca.
(Thanks to WorthPlaying for the casting news!)
None of the voiceover artists for the mainstream X-characters featuring in the game include any well-known names (save Tom Kane & Fred Tatasciore as Magneto & Beast/Juggernaut respectively). This comes as no surprise really, as they aren't the main characters in the game. Also set to make an appearance (besides the last 3 famous mentions) are Cyclops, Wolverine, Colossus, Gambit, Iceman, Emma Frost, Nightcrawler & Quicksilver (who happens to be voiced by an Indian! YAY!).
(Just fyi, voices for the Spiderman: Edge of Time game have also been revealed: Val Kilmer(!) as Dr. Walker Sloan (the game's main villain), Smallville's Supergirl Laura Vandervoot as Mary Jane & Battlestar Galactica's Katee Sackhoff as Felicia Hardy aka Black Cat.)
But don't get distracted with THAT news! Below are TWO videos to keep you pumped for the X-Men Destiny game! The first is another trailer for the game:
Now the video below is an extremely cool E3 2011 Gamespot stage demo for the game- GREAT if you want an in-depth look at the graphics, gameplay & overall dynamics of the game with an interview of Activision Producer Doug Heder! After seeing it I was convinced that this is a refreshing change for those of us who were getting a bit too used to the way Beenox used to make their games with Activision- everything so predictable! ENJOY the vid!
Excited?? Why don't you pre-order X-Men Destiny from right here? If you pre-order the game for PS3/Xbox 360, you'll get an early unlock of Emma Frost Suits for your 3 main characters:
