Square Enix has release a list of top notch voice actors for Sleeping Dogs. According to Square Enix “a line-up of both Hollywood and Hong Kong cinema stars were enlisted to help the game capture the tone of Hong Kong cinema.”
The most recognizable actors on the cast are Lucy Liu, Emma Stone, Yunjin Kim of Lost fame and Tom Wilkinson from Batman Begins. They’re joined by Will Yun Lee (Die Another Day, Total Recall) as undercover officer Wei Shen as well as Edison Chen (The Dark Knight, Infernal Affairs) and other notable actors including Winston Chu, Robin Shou, Terence Yin, James Hong, Tzi-Ma and Kelly Hu.
Sleeping Dogs will have a great cast behind it which will hopefully lead to a great story. The executive Producer at United Front Games Stephen van der Mescht has stated that there is over two hours of dialog. The game has been influenced by some of Hong Kong’s greatest films. It should be interesting how the final product will come out. Hong Kong crime dramas are a nitch market but it should be a fresh change to the games of today.
Keep your eyes posted to UGR gaming as we will be bringing you all the Hong Kong glory of Sleeping Dogs. Sleeping Dogs will hit stores on August 14th in North America and August 17th in Europe for PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360.
