Bayonetta: Bloody Fate – English Voice Cast Announced
It should come as no surprise for those familiar with North American anime publishers, but Funimation Entertainment are commissioning a new English dub for the feature film Bayonetta: Bloody Fate, an alternate retelling of the video game Bayonetta on the PlayStation 3, Xbox360 and (soon) Wii U platforms. The company have confirmed the voice cast is as follows, featuring many names that gamers will recognize from the source material:
BAYONETTA – Hellena Taylor
JEANNE – Grey DeLisle
LUKA – Yuri Lowenthal
BALDER – Grant Albrecht
RODIN – Dave Fennoy
ENZO – John Kassir
NARRATOR – Richard Epcar
No release date has been confirmed as of this time. Fortunately, the official English-subtitled première took place at this years Gold Coast Film Festival, which I attended and have subsequently reviewed HERE.
Based on the best-selling franchise, this pulse-pounding feature length anime shows you a side of Bayonetta you’ve never seen before! Twenty years after her awakening, the hottest witch in gaming history is still searching for clues that could help unravel the mysteries of her dark past. Aided in her quest by the clandestine weapon smith Rodin – and his deadly creations: Scarborough Fair – Bayonetta continues to leave a trail of angel corpses in her irresistible wake. Her search for answers leads to encounters with a mysterious – and eerily familiar – little girl, a vengeance-obsessed journalist, and a deadly white-haired beauty that seems to know more about Bayonetta than the witch herself. Fans of the franchise won’t want to miss this chance to see their favorite fantasy come to life in a killer flick packed with mind-blowing action and scandalous scenes of seduction!
