The voice actors in Crisis Core Reunion have been changed for the English version of the game other than the new graphics, gameplay style, newly introduced combat skills, soundtracks, and other versatile features in contrast to the original PSP-released model.

Let’s dive into the guide without further ado and cover up all the new and old voice actors.

Key Takeaways

  • Every character in Crisis Core Reunion has a talented voice actor behind the scene, both English and Japanese, making the game more diverse and dynamic for players.
  • Some new actors are popularly known for their past roles in the acting and vocal performance industry and are not recognized enough for their hard work.
  • Genesis is one of the primary villains in-game, and Shaun Conde and the returning Gakuto Oshiro cover his vocals.
  • A few characters have pre-recorded voiceovers for the Japanese version of the game.

Zack Fair

He is the primary protagonist in Crisis Core Reunion. Zack is a part of the Soldier Company. Under the wing of Angeal, he has made his ranking to first class and eventually possessed the buster sword, eventually. In no time, he becomes one of the most trustable high-ranking fellows alongside Sephiroth in the division.

Although Fair has faced many hardships during his time in the program, the love of his life, Aerith Gainsborough, keeps him going and moving forward. At a very early age, he left his family and joined a military group to start his journey toward the Soldier Company, as he had dreamed of becoming part of it since he was a child.

Zack is shown to be very bright and energetic, a people person, and is also known to make friends very easily with almost anyone. Most importantly, with his difficult situations, Fair never lets down his high hopes and spirits.

Caleb Pierce

The replacement for Rick Gomez is Caleb Pierce. He is a fantastic American actor who has brought Zack Fair to life in a way that portrays him as younger and more lively. Final Fantasy VII Remake and The First Soldier also hired Pierce to do vocals for the main protagonist. It makes sense why the production team of Crisis Core Reunion chose a younger actor to voice Zack in-game.

Pierce’s humor-based and adolescent-styled dialogues and lines deliverance are seen to be top-notch in-game.

Previous Acting Projects:

Here is a list of Caleb Pierce’s past popular roles:

  • Charlie Peterson in Grey’s Anatomy
  • Jess in The Big Bang Theory
  • Timmy Turner in The Fairly OddParents: Fairly Odder
  • Cooper in Emerson Heights

Sephiroth‘s remarkable success in multiple battles rose him to fame, and later on, he discovers how he came into being, which makes him despise everything and start a rebellion.

As the Wutai Wars commence, Sephiroth is the key to victory for expanding Shinra’s propaganda, which is unknown to him. He gets promoted to the elite soldier rank of first class quickly, making him the most adamant superhero.

Sephiroth is showcased to be extremely calm and contained, lacking his sense of humor. He is also prone to be agitated and losing attention quickly.

Tyler Hoechlin

Hewley has a bright and soft side, as he calls Zack by the nickname; puppy. He enjoys the company of pets, especially dogs, and loves to cook and garden plants. Many look upon him as an excellent leader and influencer.

However, Angeal also uncovers the truth behind his creation. He despises everything, including his existence, and goes through an existential crisis, claiming to be a monster and threat to everyone.

His friends eventually break through his barriers and see who he truly is. Strife has a hard time explaining himself and his feelings. Besides all the good and flaws, he is a champion by heart and will do almost anything to protect his loved ones, even if it means going on solo battles.

Tifa used to be extremely lively and talkative at an early age. But ever since she experienced heavy losses in her childhood and as a teenager, she became quiet and reserved due to the severe trauma.

Lockhart has excellent observation skills and a motherly-figure vibe to her. She is also timid and will always put others before herself. Tifa can also tell what the other person feels and will protect those in need without hesitation.

Sometimes she tends to be super hostile, lacks confidence, and criticizes herself. However, Tifa continues to make efforts to be the best version of herself.

In light of his work position, Deusericus looks super chill from the outside, but from within, he strongly desires to bring equality and justice to the needy population of Midgar. He has a professional relationship with everyone in the Soldier Program.

Lazard appreciates Zack’s contribution to the program more often due to his unique work style after seeing him in the battle zones and more frequently sends him to carry out significant operations.

He participates in the Turk’s Special Elite Unit in the Affair Division. Rude only speaks when it is something important and prefers actions over words. His captivating and daunting persona can be a little too much at times.

He has a stoic, quiet, and serious personality and fights to assert his dominance. However, he also believes himself to be a person of good interest, but at the same, he is aware that his duty requires him to do wrong for the right purpose.

He conducts brutal experiments on humans and refers to them as test subjects. Unknown to Shinra’s headquarters, he carries out unorthodox procedures on his targets and himself to achieve the scientific results he desperately desires.

Another thing that you will really like about Kunsel is that he considers the well-being of his friends more important than the work he does reluctantly to show his disguised alliance with Shinra Company.

Side Voice Actors In Crisis Core Reunion

These characters were not directly part of the main storyline but significantly contributed to the game’s progression.

Nero The Sable

He is the complete reverse of his older brother, Weiss, just like his corrupted abilities. Nero is isolated, reserved, and not capable of showing emotions. Weiss is the only one who has witnessed his positive affection since he’s the only one who has treated him well and like family.

Nero is often seen in Weiss’ company and has a very hostile relationship with almost everyone. He acts as his brother’s second-in-command and takes command of the Tsviets when Weiss is out of action.

Weiss The Immaculate

He is the most robust and first elite Soldier in Tsviet, leading Deepground. Weiss is the most feared and highly honored among his subordinates and has a very close relationship with his brother, Nero.

Unfortunately, all thanks to Professor Hojo’s control, Weiss develops full disgust and despises any human scientist like his army of high-ranking warriors in Tsviet.

His personality is a mixture of psychotic sadist who represents himself in a very content and optimistic way and doesn’t care at all for his subordinates, even if it means putting their lives in full danger. He only cares if his accomplishments are being fulfilled. Weiss has only reciprocally shown real empathy to his younger brother, Nero.

Final Remarks

We have now reached the end of our voice actors guide for the Crisis Core Reunion. Consequently, we will wholeheartedly miss the original English voice actors, especially Rick Gomez’s heroic and mature voice behind Zack Fair. At the same time, it is interesting to witness this new generation of cast members behind the scenes voicing your all-time favorite characters.

In addition, the return of the old voice cast behind the Japanese dub from the PSP model surely must have brought a lot of comfort and nostalgia to many gamers since the shift in the English voice cast. However, the original Japanese not being replaced brings up many questions, but that remains a mystery for now.

Let us know down below in the comments which do you think of the new voice actors and who you like the most.

Now that you have made it to the very end, you may as well have a look at our different Crisis Core Reunion guides, prepared in-depth and with full efforts, for you, by our energetic and enthusiastic team of writers:
