Capcom Announces Resident Evil Village’s Japanese Voice Cast

For fans of Japanese media, some of these names will be very familiar.

2 min read

Funnily enough, Resident Evil didn’t always have a Japanese dub. It seems weird to say, but for a long time, the developers considered it important to have real English voices to match the American setting.

This is part of the reason a lot of the early voice acting was so rough since they were picking from a small pool of English-speaking, Japanese-based talent.

However, Resident Evil Village will include a full cast of Japanese voices. These actors were recently revealed by Capcom via an announcement through PRTimes.

  • Ethan Winters – Hidenobu Kiuchi
  • Chris Redfield – Hiroki Touchi
  • Mia Winters – Akari Higuchi
  • Alcina Dimitrescu – Kikuko Inoue
  • The Duke – Chafurin

While he’s returning in Resident Evil Village as Ethan from Resident Evil 7, Western fans might also know the lead actor. Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure fans will recognize Hidenobu Kiuchi as the voice actor behind Hol Horse.

He’s been in a large variety of other anime as well, such as voicing Nero in One Piece, David Eagle in Hajime no Ippo: Rising, and Yurius in Granblue Fantasy.

Hiroki Touchi is also coming over from Resident Evil 7, but Western fans are more likely to know him as Baldroy the house chef in Black Butler.

Akari Higuchi is returning to Resident Evil Village as Mia again, but she’s far less well-known than the others, with only six credits to her name.

Kikuko Inoue has been voice acting for decades now, and anime fans might know her from roles such as Miria in Claymore or Lust in Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.

Chafurin has also been around a while, going so far back as voicing Inspector Juzo Megure in Case Closed.

Any other important characters in Resident Evil Village have gone unnamed so far, so it’s not surprising to see only the most well-known characters having voice reveals.

Regardless, fans who like to play in Japanese will likely hear plenty of voices they know and love.
