I mean it's possible we have it when we first start and even if it is for a select few scenes this would be welcomed with great appreciation. Like maybe only voice acting for primal intros or beastmen story intros, even the empire intro story.

I'm going to guess only in main story line missions until the game starts making cash for SE.

I hope so, the small amount of cutscenes with voice acting was not only a surprise, but I thought it was done quite well. I was dissapointed to find out that all the cutscenes were not voice acted after seeing the ones I did. Hopefully they either go back and add it in later or at least use voice acting for the future content.

Let's hope that if they do that, we at least get the ability to replay cutscenes. And in one centralized location... goblin footprints were a nightmare...

Realistically, don't expect it until they get the game to an acceptable standard. It takes a long time to do those FMV scenes and to get the talent for both the Japanese/English cast to do it is quite time consuming.

I'd rather have them spend their time fixing game mechanics and adding quests and stuff first.

My cat girl has the voice of Rie Tanaka! Oh wait you meant only the NPC cutscene, cause our character will never speak.

You're lucky... my catgirl has the voice of Hiromichi Tanaka, somehow. (._.;)

To be honest, I was rather disappointed in the small amount of voice acting. Given that so much of the game is still essentially "offline" content (meaning interaction with a lot of NPCs doesn't require a server check - .... or shouldn't), it stands to reason that they would have put more effort into adding these things that would have put them head and shoulders above the competition.

I hope that they add more, because coming back to this game after playing offline titles that not only are as expansive (world size and xpacs) but also are deeply immersive (people talk to you like you are really there) is a bit of a let down.

The days of wall'o text are going away.

At least in RPGs :p
