The hero talks only in the Japanese version, just like Mewtwo

Every speaking voice clips are replaced by inarticulate sounds in the English version.

Interesting, I thought they were all silet protagonists? Is this specifically for smash so they can have voice clips?

Its just spell names anyway, I don't particularly care here since there are no phrases.
I like listening to the names to be honest although “Frizz” sounds kind of funny more than cool .

It’s too bad we can’t change the language to Japanese because we won’t be able to read the menu, lol

Only the Luminary called out spells in the JP trailer. The rest of them had the same audio as our version. I think there's an "attack call" track and a "grunt only" track used for the Luminary and the other three heroes respectively, all by the same VA.

What they likely did was take the grunt track and put it on the Luminary too in other languages to avoid him calling out the Japanese spell names in regions where they don't match.

I'm glad we can atleast keep that sfx with the english language(especially erdrick with that oot-link style voice!) for everything else still on rather than having another forced dub like marth

Lmao I feel like such a weeb right now. This won't affect me at all since I forced myself to learn 90% of the menu options by heart specifically so I could change the language to Japanese. In addition to being more aesthetically pleasing, many characters have better voices in Japanese (Palutena, all the FE characters, Mewtwo, Shulk). The only real casualty to this change is Falco's signature down taunt into down smash line no longer works.

Considering Dragon Quest is a Square Enix IP, and Square Enix's other Smash character also only speaks in Japanese, this doesn't surprise me.

I thought that was because of legal issues regarding Steve Burton (Cloud's VA at the time), I don't recall Rasmus Hardiker (Luminary's English voice) having those issues... Then again, I don't know who will voice the other 3 characters.
