Gurren Lagann star steps in to voice Protagonist
Japan's upcoming Dragon Quest XI Switch release promises to be full of new content, including a new voice for the protagonist!
A recent Nintendo livestream announced a wealth of information for the upcoming Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age S revealed that the Switch version of the popular game would involve brand-new scenarios not seen in the original release. Notably, it was announced that Mitsuki Saiga (Rossiu in Gurren Lagann) will be providing the voice of the Protagonist—though if you prefer your protag as the silent type, there will be a function to switch off his voice in Settings.
