Casually, we are currently in the middle of the Tokyo Game Show 2021 period and, paradoxically, this is information on one of the next big games from Bethesda that we are collecting today. Studio director Todd Howard spoke notably about the Japanese translation of Starfield and gave an idea of ​​the scale of the project in terms of scripting and dubbing.

In a desire to expand his target audience, Todd Howard announced during the Tokyo Game Show that Starfield will benefit from a full Japanese translation. In addition, this one even plans to translate the voice-overs of the game and is shaping up to be the largest translation ever made by Bethesda.. And we can understand it at the sight of the figures announced by the director of the studio during his visit to the Tokyo Game Show.

Who says space game in a universe that extends as far as the eye can see, says major project on the part of Bethesda? Comparing it to its past glories, it does appear to be the case! Indeed, according to Todd Howard, Starfield can count on the participation of more than 300 actors who will share more than 150,000 lines of dialogue. A staggering figure when compared to Skyrim : Bethesda’s fantasy RPG, released ten years ago, He had 70 different voice actors and had a script containing 60,000 lines of dialogue.

So with Starfield, Bethesda aims to set a new record within the studio. The last game that was the most prolific in terms of script, but also the most talkative, was Fallout 4 since it peaked at 110,000 lines of dialogue. A score that will be pulverized by Starfield but which still remains far from the juggernaut Red Dead Redemption II which overhangs its opponents with a total of 1,200 actors for more than 500,000 lines of dialogue. But do not believe, however, that Bethesda is playing it small arm on this one.

By the way, if Bethesda didn’t make any resounding announcements during the event, the studio made it clear that Starfield would not be the only game to benefit from a Japanese localization but that it would be joined by another production, namely Arkane Austin’s next game, the so-called Redfall which is scheduled for summer 2022. Starfield, meanwhile, is aiming for a release set for November 11, 2022 on PC, Xbox Series X | S, and Xbox One.
