Prompto sounded annoying in English dub while I find his voice sexier in Japanese so I played the game with Japanese dub. This video is a comparison of the English cast and the Japanese cast. Who is the best actor for each character?

I know, right? Prompto's lines are quite cringy when you hear it for the first time after playing the game in Japanese.

I feel like they all sound better in Japanese audio.

I think Japanese dialogue usually don't appear cheesy either as we take the proper context. Usually US based dub don't follow Japanese humor and even some of the culture references. And that shows up easily.

A good dub is vital to make the game look good. I once saw a game dubbed in Spanish and forget it, I couldn't even play it!!

I think you would have to speak Japanese, to have a answer for this question- but I really don't think his voice sounds that bad. I think Prompto is just a happy-go-lucky type of guy in Final Fantasy 15-and he sounds that way to me- when he talks in English.

Although Gladio sounded better in FFXV Japanese dub, I really loved Noctis, Prompto, and Ignis and I think they sounded better in the English dub.

I actually think Japanese voices look pretty cool, they give a special vibe to the game, I really like it. Thinking of it, it's almost as good as in English!

Maybe the reason I prefer the english dub is because I can't understand anything in Japanese so I've got to read the subtitles.

For me, I really loved the way Luna's English voice was, it really suited her. At the sam time, everyone sounded better in Japanese especially Noctis and Prompto..so I just settled for the Japanese voice cast.

There is always gonna be some element of cheesy in there so I guess it just comes with the territory. I have come to accept that as a part of it all though and it really makes little difference to me.

Hi @holmes22. Am sure there is a voice cast you love. Which version were you playing with though?

From my experience, it always seems that the unknown always interests people more than the known. It's the same thing with languages, as those language we aren't familiar with seems to appeal more to us than the one we already knew.

I watched way too much Anime so I have no issues with reading subtitles. I actually played the game in both languages so I can have 2 fresh different experience. Also both are not my first language, I am Persian so both languages are foreign to me.

The Japanese actors are better sounding to me. I mean Prompto sounded bitchy and Cindy's accent is hard to understand.

Wow. Personally I loved the Japanese voice cast, so I just went for that.

I have also watched lots of anime and have no problem reading subtitles as I play. As for the different character languages, I honestly have no preference. I think the characters sound good both in Japanese and English versions of the game. If you focus really hard on the game, you will ALMOST not hear the struggle in the characters' translation of speech from Japanese.:D

English dubbed would not be as perfect as the original Japanese version because it happens everywhere. Even in the movies, the original sounds perfect while the dubbed in other languages sound manipulated.

Maybe, the English version could not grasp the original taste of the game.

That's sad. I think there has to be atleast subtitles. Because that way one can play. Lot of deaf gamers play this way. And it seems like a good option for many. But so far it's money consuming task so often ignored.
