The upcoming Mighty No. 9 will have English, not Japanese voice acting after a close vote, the developer announced today.
The decision comes after a vote which saw more than 20, 000 fans weigh in on their preferred language for the game. Earlier, the developer announced that it would not be able to afford both English and Japanese voice overs.
The developers note that even though the majority of the game’s backers are English speakers, the vote still came incredibly close.
You’d be surprised how close the vote was — less than 1,000 votes separated the two choices, from the start right down to the end!
Mighty No. 9 is set for release in April next year on PC, Linux, Mac, 3DS, Wii U, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
