Today Bandai Namco Entertainment announced the English voice actors that will take on the roles of the characters of the upcoming anime game Sand Land.
We learn that the hero Beelzebub will be played by Risa Mei. The mysterious Sheriff Rao is voiced by John Lipow. Beelzebub’s loyal advisor Thief is played by Owen Thomas. His father, Lucifer, has the voice of Keith Silverstein.
Moving on to the villains, General Are is played by Andrew Lander, while Supreme Commander Zeu is voiced by Shawn Smith.
Their voices can already be sampled in a new English version of the story trailer, which provides a good look at the characters.
You can watch it below, and you can compare it with the original Japanese voices included in the previous version of the trailer, which was revealed a few weeks ago.
If you're unfamiliar with Sand Land, it's another of Bandai Namco's attempts to translate a relevant anime and manga into a video game. This time around, the target of the adaptation is the Sand Land manga by Akira Toriyama, which just received an anime adaptation in August.
Sand Land will be released for PS5, PS4, Xbox Serie X|S, and PC via Steam. It doesn't yet have a release date. It was revealed a while ago at Summer Game Fest and we got another look in July at Anime Expo.
It'll be interesting to see if this game will hit the mark, but considering the voice cast and dual audio track, we can at least say that Bandai Namco is trying to give Sand Land a level of broad appeal.
