Troy Baker as Ryo?

I wouldn't be surprised.

I don't want that no-talent Corey Marshall reprising his role...

Hell no lol let's face it, hiring Troy as Ryo would cost more than the budget of the game! XD

Corey Marshall was the best voice in Shenmue. Maybe that's not saying much, but I kind of enjoyed his style.

When I think of Troy Baker I think of Joel from the Last of Us. I know he can have a higher range, but I picture Joel's voice, and that just does not fit with Ryo.

He'll probably have it sound similar to the "inFAMOUS" character.

Just looked that up. I could live with that, yeah.

But it's probably not going to happen.

That's what people said for David Hayter. But I'm sure Kiefer Sutherland will do just as well if not better.

That Troy guy is pretty well known in the gaming world now I doubt the Budget Shenmue III will have could come close to getting that guy. Personally I would love Corey to get the roll. I would be happy with it just being in Japanese if it saved alot of money that could be used for other important features.

He seems a great guy who's genuinely passionate about Shenmue, but Corey Marshall was definitely not the best voice in the original game. Lan Di and Iwao Hazuki were both a lot better. In fact, they're probably the only voice actors from Shenmue I who I would describe as "good", with the possible exception of Chai.

It almost certainly won't matter to me, because I'll definitely be playing Shenmue III in Japanese if given the choice, but I would like to see Corey reprieve his role. He's clearly very popular in the Shenmue community and I think most people who play the game dubbed would want that.

Seems petty but I'm very put off MGS5 since David Hayter was replaced.

I'm very hopeful Shenmue 3 will have as many original voice actors as possible. I've listened to Corey Marshall's work outside of Shenmue and think he acts very well.

It's been documented how slap-dash the process was in the first two games. With better direction, Corey could do a great job for Shenmue 3.
You can find me at Tojo Dojo Forums along with Shenmue Dojo regulars!

Yup, European Dreamcast version of S2 was just fine.

What's funny to me is, I would have played Shenmue 1 in japanese, but now that they're in China, it makes less sense to me. They should all be speaking in Chinese! So now I plan on listening in english. I know that they're DEFINITELY not speaking english, but for whatever reason there's just less of a mental block there. Does that make any sense at all?

Like I can pretend that they're speaking chinese, I'm just hearing it in english.

Woof, forget it.

VA direction and recording and implementation has improved immensely in the last 15 years. The original English VAs are excellent. Corey Marshall and Lisle Wilkerson definitely should come back to the series, among many others.
