Seriously what is going on with SquareEnix and their subpar localization English dubs?

The Trials of Mana English dub also is sounding very very very bad (another JRPG due in Spring 2020):

People really need to understand that trailers are often edited on purpose in such a way that audio mixes prioritize voice over everything else, and often times the voice work is either aired out of context or shown over shots where the lines being spoken would not play.

This is normal, this is completely common. A few out-of-context lines in a trailer not sounding amazing should not be cause for panic, especially considering the English voice acting is likely still being implemented into the game.

well, remember. Xenoblade 2's English dub (which I personally love, but see the big issues) was shown off in early trailers, and many also thought the voice acting would get better (especially for Rex) after the lukewarm reception. Sadly that didn't happen, since they never re-recorded anything.

I just don't really see what's so terrible about it. The word for word writing is bad, but the SCRIPT is probably bad in Japanese too. Acting-wise it's fine, nothing special. We're also not exactly seeing any amazing story moments.

Trailer was incredible. Character design is perfect still, and everything looks charming as hell. Excited for this!

I actually think the new Soldier guy is the final boss of the game. Motor Ball sucks and is an awful boss to end on

Its possible the part he is showing up is tricking you to think its in the Cloud and Jessie bike part and is really the escape from midgar bike chase. or they could do it earlier to introduce him

I think haveing a SOLDIER as a final boss is a lot more fitting than another big robot thats the most boring choice
also, they could prop up Sephiroth axing some SOLDIERs throughout the game to imply his skill.

Ah ok thanks.

Interesting angle, isn't the war with Wutai over by the time FF7 starts in the original? Wonder how this will play into Yuffie's introduction later.
Wutai has largely been subjugated but there are still fringe insurgent groups and freedom fighters.

Yuffie on the other hand is just a jerk.

I think it may be my new life’s work to do a supercut of every single death in the remake but with that stupid song edited in.
