I’m sure there are fans from Warcraft 3 still playing WoW, with potentially a lot of excited ones as more and more content of the 4.3 patch is coming to light. Recently we found out ol’ Illidan and his blindfold of awesome will be back, along with Tyrande when we go back in time.
Now, there has been a great deal of times in-game when I wince hearing voice actors give out their lines. Not always because they sound bad, but mostly because it simply is not the voice actor it was back in Warcraft 3. Well, for whatever reason, they actually have the original voice actress of Tyrande doing her voice again. What should be a great time to celebrate a relative fan favorite isn’t shaping up that way at the moment. As Dante from Devil May Cry and Devil May Cry 2 painfully made clear, just because it is the same voice actor at the helm, it does not mean the directors know what they are doing as a voice coach.
Considering this is a reoccurring character in a previous iteration of the ‘same’ game, you would think continuity would be a big part of development. Even though they basically completely changed *everything* that happened in WC3 thanks to a Knakk novel, her voice should still be the same as it was, perhaps even more youthful as this occurs prior to when we see her in Warcraft 3.
Let me know if you notice anything slightly different between Warcraft 3 and Cataclysm’s 4.3 version of Tyrande Whisperwind.
