Pre-E3 06: Final Fantasy XII gets English voices, US release date

Today, Square Enix revealed that the US version of Final Fantasy XII will be released on the PS2 this October.

The company also showed a trailer featuring English voices for all of the characters. Many of the characters had British accents, but the leads Ashe and Vaan had American accents. The quality of the voice acting was easily on par with any of the company's other big name titles like Kingdom Hearts or Final Fantasy X. The characters' lips also synched properly to the dialogue, leading to a much more realistic feel in the delivery of the dialogue.

Of course, the gameplay remains identical to the Japanese version, which we havepreviewedextensively. Why don't you read our coverage if you haven't already?
