Talking Shadou!

A tradition of mine since learning of these dubs in the mid 2000s, scouring Yahoo Japan Auctions for new Tomb Raider deals for my entertainment and backhand study.

thankyou Mr Postman

This time around they've added "The" to the localized title unlike Rise, which was literally "Raizu Obu Tūmu Reidā" "Rise of TR". Here we have "Shadou Obu Za Tūmu Reidā" "Shadow of the TR"

Anywho - Yūko Kaida. Undoubtedly famous for many dub roles. great strong voice actress in these reboots - also straight from the horses mouth shes said she loves voicing Lara and was also particularly happy to also dub Alicia Vikander in the movie.

I don't think I'll record any more, I feel like my "mental walkthrough" for Shadow is no where near as big as the previous two games, looking forward to taking my time to play through and take in all that KANJI

My first 10 minutes.

Wow. I’m Japanese and I avoided the Japanese version of this game like the plague. It’s heavily HEAVILY censored lol.

Glad you’re enjoying it though.

Can you download the Japanese language pack into the English version? Some games let you do that these days.

SoraSakai nice! I've studied Japanese since I was a kid. I nearly fell over when I discovered TR was dubbed since the beginning, I'm strangely obsessed. My two passions together. I just find them all so fascinating hahah

I doubt I'm really good enough at playing and understanding what may be censorship, it's more that hearing key words and verbs etc. and I tend to get the jist of a sentence 90% of the time.

LateRaider- all console versions must be Japan game specific however, I know on PC in TR2013 you can purchase the Japanese Language DLC or find it elsewhere online, and it plays without you having to buy the actual Japanese disks. Not sure if this applies for Rise or Shadow on PC.

This PS4 version of shadow however had to install Japanese via PSN as a DLC. previous games had it hardcoded between eng or jp. Japanese Shadow however let's you also choose Russian and Arabic and generic euro languages if you want. Unsure if they're DLC

Imagine if Tomb Raider was developed by Square Enix themselves?

Her voice sounds sweet.

Enix (before Square) actually dubbed Tomb Raider III

Oh, there's quite a resemblance in the words! I'm sure phonetically it sounds a lot different?
