Not just Martinet: changing of the guard for Steve Blum too, with the new voice actor of Vincent Valentine in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth
Today is a day of new voices, given that we have a new voice actor it’s not just Mario and Luigi but also Vincent Valentinein view of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth. Even the Compilation, given the years that have passed since the original games, is clearing its throat. Following the recast of Cloud Strife (from Steve Burton to Cody Christian), Sephiroth (from George Newbern to Tyler Hoechlin) and company, now even the gunslinger with the torn cape abandons the vocal cords of Steve Blum. He will now dub the character Matthew Merceralready appreciated on the crimson shores of Nintendo as the voice of Chrom in Fire Emblem: Awakening and, in the English dub of Tears of the Kingdom, as Ganondorf.
A year of dreams culminates with this one. No game has had the impact on me quite like FF7 did, and to be a part of it, let alone one of my favorite characters, is an honor beyond words.
Thank you all for the energy: https://t.co/MraC4WQZ6Z https://t.co/XlQd6S6arA

After all, when the RPG titan announced the schedule for the event, he noted that Mercer would be in attendance.

We still have no images of the character in the second chapter of the remake, outside of confirmation of his presence.
