War of the Visions: Final Fantasy Brave Exvius Will Have Dual Audio in the West
War of the Visions: Final Fantasy Brave Exvius executive producer Kei Hirono confirmed that the iOS and Android game will have dual audio to DualShockers.
Square Enix pulled back the curtain on War of the Visions: Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, a new Final Fantasy Tactics style mobile game for iOS and Android, during their E3 2019 press conference. Afterwards, DualShockers checked the game out behind closed doors at E3 and talked to Hiroki Fujmoto and Kei Hirono, the Square Enix producers behind the Final Fantasy Brave Exvius mobile games. During the presentation, I learned that every line of dialogue will be voiced upon the game’s release in Japan. As a western fan of Final Fantasy Brave Exvius’ world of Lapis, I was interested to see if this would also be the case in the west.
Right away Hirono-san confirmed that “Yes, there will be English voices” when it came to the global version of War of the Visions: Final Fantasy Brave Exvius. The developers stressed to me that War of the Visions: Final Fantasy Brave Exvius will be story heavy game, so it makes sense that Square Enix would want English voices in order to make this game more accessible to western audiences.
While that is the voice option I will definitely be using when the game comes west, a lot of hardcore players appreciate it when developers include dual audio, or the ability to use Japanese voices with English text. Surprisingly, Kei Hirono also confirmed that the western versions of War of the Visions: Final Fantasy Brave Exvius will include dual audio. “In terms of the global version we’re hoping to implement a feature that allows players to choose between the Japanese voices and the English voices.”
Hopefully, the inclusion of dual audio will convince some western fans to try out the game once it launches. War of the Visions: Final Fantasy Brave Exvius is currently in development for iOS and Android. Expect to hear more from DualShockers about War of the Visions and our conversation with its producers later this week.
