Final Fantasy VII Vincent Valentine Voice Actor, Steve Blum, Iterates Everyone Was Recast, Including Him

While the Final Fantasy VII voice actors being recast for the Remake is not new information, there has been uncertainty amongst some fans regarding characters we have yet to hear, including one Vincent Valentine.

Recently, a fan asked the original voice actor of Vincent, Steve Blum, who assumed the role for Advent Children and Dirge of Cerberus, whether he’d return for the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Rebirth. And Blum’s response was simply, “They recast us all. Sorry.”

Once again, this is to be expected, but we are hearing this straight from a horse’s mouth and not just from Square Enix collectively. Further, this comment will assuredly reinforce skepticism for certain crowds. Then again, those individuals would likely be hard-pressed to play the Remake project anyway.

Personally, I have faith in the team getting another excellent voice for Vincent. I’ve been a fan of every VA’s performance so far, except Zack’s, to varying extents.

Regardless, you can view Steve Blum’s recent comment pertaining to Final Fantasy VII Rebirth below:

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion is now available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion is set to be a modernized retelling of the original Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, a prequel to the game that initiated this beloved sub-franchise. Players control Zack, a hyperactive and determined SOLDIER yearning to become not only First Class, but also a hero in his own right.

Combat utilizes real-time action elements alongside the innovative “Digital Mind Wave” system, used to perform special attacks called Limit Breaks and achieve other notable feats.
