Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida Voices a Koala in Latest Destiny of Spirits Trailer

Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studio President Shuhei Yoshida has proven time and time again that he isn’t the usual executive, he also doubles as Twitter customer support and today we get to see (and hear) him in just another role.

Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia released a new trailer for its free to play and devilishly addictive PS Vita exclusive Destiny of Spirits, in order to celebrate the 500,000 downloads mark and the new “Friend in Need” raid event.

The trailer is mostly voiced by the super-popular voice actress Haruka Tomatsu (Asuna in Sword Art Online, Aliasse in Valkyria Chronicles II and a whole truckload of other roles) in the role of the Chaos spirit Miyokutsu, but there’s also an exceptional guest talent at work in the clip. Shuhei Yoshida himself plays the role of Tsukuyomi’s koala.

This is actually not the first time that Yoshida-san lends his voice for a Destiny of Spirits trailer, as he played the role of the Tsukuyomi’s owl Kichipi in a previous video back in March.

Above and below you can check out the trailer, the illustration designed for the new event, and two pictures of Yoshida-san at the mic, courtesy of Destiny of Spirits’ Japanese Twitter account.

Incidentally, if you’re a DOS player you really don’t want to miss the new raid event, as it grants three super-rare spirits (Tsukuyomi, Verdandi and Iyatiku). If you’ve never tried it the event is your perfect chance to start out with some really good spirits.

Let me warn you though, the game is extremely addictive. Try it at your own risk.

    I love Haruka, she’s the voice behind some of my favorite girls. And I’m beginning to believe that Sony has most of Japan signed to it’s labels, it’s ridiculous how often I see “Sony Music” plastered on anime openings and wiki pages.

    On topic: I’m not surprised, Yoshida-sensei is a man of many talents.

    I love Shu <3 I feel like if I ever meet him in person, the first thing I'd want to do is give him a hug. His jovial demeanor is very heart warming.
