People are claiming they’re placeholder voices.
Really? I wonder why, if that's the case. Cause those battle grunts DEFINITELY sound like Steve Burton. Plus, I'm sure both Steve and George would love to come back to the FF7 franchise. I mean, a HD remake from the ground up? That's gotta be a dream come true for those two.
I mean, both Steve and George come in every few months to record for a cutscene or two for Dissidia, and they got Steve to do the trailer in 2015.
Lip sync is more advanced that what would be expected so the voices should be heading towards being finalised.
Best case is Steve is doing a great job at portraying a Cloud Strife that is rarely voiced, as the Cloud we usually hear is one after the mako memory reveal.
Worst case is, like KH3, Final Fantasy VIIR is using a voice director that re-auditioned these voice actors and then decided for new ones.
I'm not immensely versed on voice acting, but if the dialogue isn't final yet, maybe hiring them already would've been too expensive, or something? Battle grunts could be taken from other games, too, nothing sounded distinctively unheard to me.
New cast or not, let’s just hope the game has a much better voice director than KH3 and actually gives these actors context for their lines lolWorst case is, like KH3, Final Fantasy VIIR is using a voice director that re-auditioned these voice actors and then decided for new ones.
Andrea Bowden was the most recent voice for Aerith after Mena Suvari in KH2, and she was fantastic =(They all definitely sound recast, but they really aren’t bad, just not what we’re used to. I’m just thankful Mena Suvari is kept the fuck away from Aerith (who’s never really had a consistent English VA anyway). Seph sounds like Ben Diskin impersonating George Newburn

Square Enix adopted a new policy a few years back where they'll stop announcing video game projects years before its release.Man, Cloud looks so much better. They really did a good job.

I assume FF7R is why SE was expecting record operating income this fiscal year. I’m surprised they decided to remain so radio silent so close to the potential release. Perhaps they had a change in mentality after the initial reveal that they should only show things off close to release? If I remember correctly Normura said the early announcement was so that the project announcement wouldn’t be leaked.
I've been wishing the same but for FF X. It's popular enough to happen, but with they releasing the remasters over and over seems unlikely, unfortunately.After seeing this trailer, I really hope that Final Fantasy VIII and Final Fantasy IX get this sort of remake treatment (provided that Final Fantasy VII Remake is a critical success).
