Heavy Rain Voiced In 13 Languages

Updated: 10:36PM PST - 8/24/2009

It seems like every other day or so some bit of fascinating news comes out about Quantic Dream’s thriller Heavy Rain, and each time it happens I get more and more excited about the game. Well, the latest news is more on the “Well, that’s certainly impressive” side as opposed to the “Oh dear lord! I musts haves its now!” side, but it’s still worth mentioning.

During a presentation during GamesCom, Quantic Dream founder David Cage revealed that the game’s voice work isn’t only impressive, but plentiful. In fact, as Joystiq reports, the game will include 13 voiced languages, and will be subtitled in five more. So far, the following languages have been confirmed: English, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Russian, and French.

I'm currently waiting to receive confirmation on the remaining languages, so I’ll update if/when I hear something.

What language are you most looking forward to using in the game?

Update: So I just heard back from Quantic Dream, and here's what's up. Turns out that the game will be fully localized (audio and text) in 10 languages (English, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Japanese, Russian, Polish, and French), with Japanese being available only for the Japanese territory.

The game will also include text-only in the following six languages: Chinese, Korean, Swedish, Danish, Finnish and Norwegian.
