Anime Fans Will Probably Be Familiar With "Overwatch" Japanese Voice Cast

The global release of Blizzard's new action-shooting game Overwatch hit Japan yesterday, with Square Enix handling the local version

 The global release of Blizzard's new action-shooting game Overwatch hit Japan yesterday, with Square Enix handling the local version. Early indication suggests that it's well recieved, or at least well hyped internationally. And, for the localization, they got high marks for casting recognizable voice actors, especially for the female cast. The waifu shooter definitely has a lot of talent with strong waifu resumes.
