Fans of the Tales series are likely excited as hell about the upcoming Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition remaster. Widely considered as one of the best games in the series, it was also the first game in the series to be in HD and release on a Microsoft platform (which saw some crazy sales spikes for the Xbox 360 in Japan at the time). Sadly, not everything about this re-release is good.

On Twitter yesterday, a fan had pointed out that it sounded like main character Yuri Lowell wasn’t being voiced by his original English actor, Troy Baker, in Definitive Edition’s newer scenes. While that could have been down to bad video compression or maybe just a placeholder actor while the new dub was being recorded, the worst possible news has turned out to be true. Baker, himself, responded to the fan and confirmed he wasn’t called back for any additional lines.
