English Voice Recording Report!
The English voice recording is coming along so we want to report where we are at and get behind the scenes with the cast and crew.
If you have been following Corey Marshall on Twitter you might have seen that English voice recording was also in session from last year. Shenmue III continues the tradition with a huge amount of voiced lines. We are about 70-80% done recording and we are happy to report we are right on track!
Main Cast Introductions
Hey! It's Corey Marshall! Without Corey, our English speaking Ryo just would not come to life. Corey was set to play Ryo when the project started back in 2015. It did take a quite a while to get into the studio and start recording the English voices, but Corey was full on ready to give a great performance, so expect the best!
Playing our heroine in Shenmue III is Brianna Knickerbocker! Yu-san selected from a number of candidates through audio auditions only, and Brianna stunned with her great performance reel. Finally meeting at the studio, she stunned us again with her beauty. Brianna has acted in a dizzying array of games and animated features, so we will all be looking forward to her portrayal of Shenhua!
Behind the Scenes at the Studio
Last year Yu Suzuki and Sound Director Takayuki Nakamura went to the studio in L.A. for the English voice recording jump off.

Who's this!? It's Corey's daughter, Katana, making her voice acting debut!
Yeah! The English voice crew brings it!
Hope everyone enjoyed that! There was so much great back and forth on the Shenmue concept and technical aspects between Corey, Brianna, all the voice actors and the recording staff from Lionbridge Gaming in charge of the English voicing, making it a truly meaningful chapter in the journey!
