Konoko Voice Actress Chosen
6:00 AM | Charles George | Comment on this story

After years of seemingly little or no progress, Bungie's long-awaited third-person action title Oni finally appears to be nearing the finish line. First Bungie revealed that the game has hit beta, and now Matt Soell has leaked the information that a voice actor has been chosen for the game's protagonist, Konoko, presumably for her cut-scene dialog. According to this comment by Matt on the Onicentral forums, they've even begun recording the audio:

Yes, although in the builds I've seen so far she's only had placeholder sounds, which at one point included a pitch-shifted Joseph Staten and (in a cutscene just before a battle) the "Let's Get Ready To Rumble" guy.

Her real voice will be provided by an actress named Amanda who has done a lot of anime voiceover work. There are some funny anecdotes I could tell about the recording sessions for Konoko's voice but this is a family page. At least I think it is.

Normally recording the voice acting signifies the end of a game's development cycle. Oni has recently hit Beta and was expected to ship in late October for Mac, PC and PlayStation 2, but a recent report from the ECTS expo in London suggests the game might be delayed until early 2001. When Oni does finally arrive, it will be published by Gathering of Developers.
