Final Fantasy XVI Shares Video Interview with Benedikta’s Voice Actor, Nina Yndis

GameStop recently posted a video interview they conducted with the English voice actor of Benedikta Harman from Final Fantasy XVI, Nina Yndis.

Yndis emphasized that she knew little about the game during initial voice recordings. Additionally, she found the most challenging parts of the recording process to be voicing the dialogue that elucidated specific information and the more mundane elements rather than the intensely emotional scenes.

Regarding improvisation, Yndis didn’t feel the need to traditionally do so since the script was so well-written, so she instead found improvising lines with different deliveries was the extent of what was justifiable.

Final Fantasy XVI is a more action-heavy entry than its predecessors, with a Devil May Cry V designer even taking the helm. Throughout the title, players will control the protagonist, Clive, as he confronts various Dominants, humans who have been cursed with the power to become Eikons.

Clive is the “First Shield of Rosaria,” sworn to protect his younger brother Joshua, who’s the Dominant of Phoenix. However, following a certain tragedy, Clive swears revenge on the Dark Eikon Ifrit.

The producer, Naoki Yoshida, describes this game as akin to his experience with the first Final Fantasy, as “playing the lead in an epic motion picture.” The reasoning for this title’s action-oriented approach and more classical fantasy setting was to “appeal to as wide a range of gamers as possible.” Moreover, “there will be a “comprehensive support system in place for players who aren’t too confident with action games.”
