I haven't seen any thread around here asking this yet, but how do you think each of the characters will sound like? Or who do imagine each of them sounding like? Nothing has been confirmed as far as voice actors yet, so for now let your imagination pave the way.

It doesn't have to be just the main characters though, it could also be for the ice sprites, or Fred, or even the predators.

I want Fred's voice to be John DiMaggio

As for the main characters I'm still not sure if Velvet is suppose to be Russian or Scandinavian
Velvet always sounded more French to me, but I can see Russian working to a certain extent as well.

If Tara can do a older and more mature version of Bookworm Hoers's voice, I think that'll be Oleander's and just because I adore deep-voice women, I want Velvet to be deep as hell but I'm not sure if that'll be better suited for Tianhuo given deeper voices command more respect.

Squeakest voice would have to go to Paprika and/or Pom.

I imagine Fred having a voice that's a cross between the harsh gruffness of Samson from Skullgirls and the suave smoothness of Leviathan from the same game, if that's even possible.

I would love and I pray that my girlfriend can get casted for one of the characters. I don't care which one, but she does have a great country accent and a great russian accent.
Got any audio of her using those voices? I'm kinda curious now.

Maybe she could throw a little bit of Raven's voice in there, too? I can't imagine the team being able to hire her, though, since she is a pretty high tier VA...

Am I the only one who though of Velvet having a German accent? I didn't want to say Scandinavian because I wasn't sure but then again, I wonder if Blitz is also a word that can be found in Scandinavian languages, I legitimetely don't know. D:

Regardless, I kind of hope they go for unknowns. There is probably a lot of voice talent agencies, not to mention independents, that have voice samples up. It would take a bit of searching, but it would also keep costs down because unless the VAs were already fairly unknown, or were willing to do jobs for a reduced fee (or a share of the profits) the bills would rack up. Considering the cult following this game and team has had, I'm sure there are unknowns that would jump at the chance to do this at a low rate, or even for a song just to get their names out there. It could end up being someone's breakout role. I'm personally indifferent to star power generally, especially with soundalikes out there, and I'd rather they save the money on other aspects of development.

Sure, they need to grab people that suit the roles, but that's what screenings are for. They could pick from a handful of unknown/minor VAs they think might work and have at it, seeing who might be the best pick.

It wouldn't surprise me considering that they are both from Germanic descent but I can't say I would be fully sure.

Dunno about Danish, but as a pitch-accent language, Swedish is definitely it's own beast.

EDIT: This is obviously exaggerated, but just imagine if Velvet sounded like Swedish Chef. :p

Or a female PewDiePie... then again he already sounds like that most of the time.

I'd say if the va of Cerebella, from Skullgirls, can do a southern accent, she'd be perfect for Arizona.

Yay for Winnie the Pooh's VA being the Prime Minister!
I also realized that Cummings would make a great Fred, since he's good at doing both deep menacing voices and friendly funny ones.

Imagine him going from Dr. Robotnik to Darkwing Duck.

I think I remember somebody in a stream mentioning that they wanted to get an actual New Zealand voice actress for Pom, but that may just be me remembering what I want and not what actually happened.

Anyway, I'd imagine there would complications in trying to do such a thing, but it would be pretty neat if they did. Not that I have any idea who they could go for though.
