I sent a message to YS NET regarding the return of the original English voice actors and received the following reply:

"As for the voice acting, we have received many requests for the original cast to return and understand how important their connection is to the Shenmue community - however, the voice actors are undetermined at this time. Once casting is final, we will let you know through the updates!
Best regards,
M. Toyoshima &
The Shenmue 3 Kickstarter Team"

It seems like they are well aware of the importance of their return. We might just get the English dub we're looking for after all!

It almost sounds like an English dub is going to happen, just a matter of whom it will involve.

Here's hopin'!

I like corey marshalls voice as Ryo. But if he returns, the direction of the voice acting absolutely cannot be as stagnant as it was in the first 2 games. The delivery of his lines need to pack at least a little bit more of a punch, we all know Ryo is a bit of a strange guy, and some of these things are just part of his personality but i think there is room to make him seem a little bit more human in terms of his voice acting this time around, and that goes for the rest of the english voice acting cast as well, this series needs a total voice acting revamp in the wake of the poor quality of the first 2 games regarding the english voice acting.

I received a reply from YS NET that is almost identical to Jibby's, but it seems to explicitly confirm both Japanese and English voices (since I explicitly asked about the voice acting in the game):

"Thank you for your message!
Shenmue 3 will be in both Japanese and English.

This is great news! I really did prefer the Japanese voice overs so I'm psyched we'll be getting both :)

Well that isnt clear. It could be Japanese audio and English text. So we will wait and see....

Even though I read and speak Japanese, I really appreciated the English cast for the previous 2 games. Those actors gave Shenmue an nostalgic charm of classic lines that bring us back to those first moments experiencing Shenmue.

Having the option of playing the game in English or Japanese would be awesome.

Ok, after re-reading the reply a couple of times, I guess you're right that it isn't completely clear. :)

I was too quick to run with the reply, given that the message was in response to my question "Will the voices in this game be in English or in Japanese?" Oh well, we can hope.

Hopefully we get the option of both Japanese and English voices.

At the very least I'd like to hear Corey Marshall reprise his role. Its hard to look at Ryo and NOT hear his voice.
