News finally dropped
The new voice actor for Sonic the Hedgehog is none other than Roger Craig Smith.
Best known for his voices as Chris Redfield and Ezio Auditore da Firenze in Resident Evil 5 and Assassin's Creed II, respectively. Miles "Tails" Prower is also getting a voice change. Replacing Amy Palant is Kate Higgins, the English voice of Sakura Haruno from Naruto.
I'll also add that nearly everyone in the active cast is getting a voice actor change. The only known exception to this is Mike Pollock, the current voice of Doctor Eggman.
So there we go. New voices for just about everyone. I'm actually pleasantly surprised by the choices. Naturally, I'll need to hear them in-game before I pass my official judgment, but right now it doesn't seem too bad. Unnecessary as far as Sonic goes, but still not bad. The first game we'll hear Craig and Higgins in is Sonic Colors coming out this year so try and listen closely, everyone. :3
an old forum reply about voice chances, for once the only civil and somewhat indifferent opinion on the changes for the now current sonic voice cast. most people hated roger(still do)as if he burnt down their friggen houses or something, but i am pleasantly surprised that this sonic general thread is or was civil at the time. i can't say the same for twitter and any sonic fansite forums at the time and still now to a degree(mostly on twitter), if anything i don't have an opinion on who voices sonic but i do appreciate the effort the current cast is putting in especially during the pandemic. hopefully they can continue and have fun doing it.
lets pass the day in a field of stars, far, far away
it/its are my main pronoun of choice, please use "it" instead of "they" for me please!
