Final Fantasy 16 Developer Prioritizes ‘British English’ For Dialogue Recording

Final Fantasy 16 producer Naoki Yoshida has revealed that British English is the game’s main language for recording, and the development team is working on the Japanese dub at a later date.

Here’s what Yoshida-san had to say during a Japanese interview on YouTube, translated by DualShockers:

We have prioritized English voice recording. And we do it specifically in British English. We’re using face capture, so later we don’t have to manually adjust each of the faces during cutscenes. And it’s full shot, as in, the motion capture actors also do the voice actors at the same time.

Well, we don’t do it for every movie. Anyway, that’s why English dubbing has progressed the most. Japanese dubbing will start soon.

Earlier this month, Square Enix revealed that English voice recording for Final Fantasy 16 was nearing completion, but fans should not expect the game to appear at the Tokyo Game Show 2021.

Final Fantasy 16 is currently in development for PS5 and PC with a release date yet to be announced.
