    Hi folks, Elson here, a Virtua Fighter fan!

    This started out as a novel concept that eventually ended as a project!

    I find it amusing that in the world of Virtua Fighter, only two languages are spoken by the characters: Japanese and English! I love the simplicity of it, it's a very SEGA thing.

    Then one day, as the sound and graphics improved with the latest iteration of Virtua Fighter (that is, Ultimate Showdown) I can't help but admire the presentation, but also imagined a 'what if' situation.

    What if Akira spoke in English? How would he sound like? Will he sound weird or acceptable in English?

    So I decided to have some fun and give it a go by recording his voice. I shared it on social media and fans loved it!

    I continued the concept by working on the other characters that did not speak 'English'. I got other voice actors involved and this is the end result of the production. Please enjoy!

    Kind regards,

    Elson Wong

    P.S. Many thanks to the voice actors involved, I had some wonderful sessions directing and recording with you. Please give them a follow with the links below!

    And finally, SEGA, if you are watching, I'd love to get involved and be honoured to voice Akira or any of the other characters. I'll do it for free, genuinely, ha ha!

    P.S.S. Full credits on the video description.
