Same protagonist, new voice
by Liam Doolan 13 hours agoIn July, Nintendo removed the voice actor Chris Niosi from the credits of Fire Emblem Heroes, after the actor, animator, and producer revealed he had abused and mistreated friends and partners over the past decade.
He also played the role of the protagonist Byleth in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. At the time, Nintendo was quick to explain a future patch would remove his dialogue from both games:
After assessing the situation, we decided to re-record the character’s voiceovers in Fire Emblem: Three Houses and Fire Emblem Heroes with another actor. The new voiceovers will be included in a future patch.
Now, the latest update for Three Houses has arrived, and it’s officially wiped Niosi’s voice from the game.
The notes for Version 1.0.2 of Fire Emblem: Three Houses confirm a new English voice has been implemented for the male version of Byleth in the game:
Implemented new English voice for Byleth (male).
Zach Aguilar, who replaced Niosi in Fire Emblem Heroes, has also replaced him as the voice of Byleth in Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
In addition to this, Version 1.0.2 of Fire Emblem on Switch unlocks the second wave of DLC in the Expansion Pass and adds Maddening Mode to the New Game difficulty options.
