E3 2002: Kingdom Hearts gets localization talent from Disney

The US version of Kingdom Hearts will bear the voices of the actors who portray Donald, Goofy, and all the rest.

We've been keeping up with Kingdom Hearts, SquareSoft, and Disney's joint venture action RPG, in which a young hero must explore the Magic Kingdom and other lands in the Disney universe. At SquareSoft's display during this year's E3 trade show, we were able to get our hands on a few playable levels of Kingdom Hearts, which made use of voice talents who depicted such characters as Donald and Goofy, as well as the English voices of Sora, the main character, and many of the rest. Donald's signature quacking-speak, and Goofy's trademark delivery worked well with the lines of dialogue in Kingdom Hearts, which showed that Disney's creative input and approval process have kept their figures unquestionably in character. We'll have more on the localized version of Kingdom Hearts as it approaches completion.
