Koei Companys "Crimson Sea" fantasy/strategy
game for Xbox to be released in early November 2002.
May of 2002, Voicegroup completed production on the original American
version of Koei Companys highly anticipated fantasy game,
"Crimson Sea". The game will be released for the Xbox
platform in early November of 2002. Koei chose Voicegroup for the
"Crimson Sea" project based upon our successful collaboration
in dubbing one of Koeis previous games, Kessen II.
Voicegroup worked closely with Koei Company throughout the voice
recording process to localize the game for the American market.
The script, which was originally developed and written in Japanese,
first had to be translated and then double-checked for accuracy.
Once the translation was locked down, our team of writers modified
the dialogue to give it a more youthful American flavor. The final
version of the English script was then taken piece by piece and
inserted into Voicegroups proprietary recording grid, which
allows the script to be sorted and organized in a variety of ways,
and is a tremendous aid during the recording process.
Voicegroup was also busy casting the American voice actors from
our team of seasoned, professional voiceover artists. With Koeis
approval of the voices, the actors were booked for their respective
recording sessions. Voicegroups own renowned voice director
Charles de Vries guided the recording sessions. After a full week
of recording, the voiceover portion was completed right on schedule.
After a nice wrap dinner, the Koei contingent, which had flown to
Los Angeles for the recording sessions, headed home, very pleased
with the results. Of course, Koei still had a long road ahead before
the final version of the game would be completed, but thanks to
Voicegroup, they now had one less headache to worry about.
The entire production was coordinated by Voicegroup producer Jim
