Benefits of Using Voice Actors in Metaverse Games

1)Improved Content Attractiveness: The voice acting of skilled voice actors will bring characters to life, raising the overall creative level of the game. This provides users with a more entertaining and immersive gaming experience.

2)Differentiation from Competing Metaverses: Voice actors are still a rarity in metaverse games, allowing brand’s content to stand out from competitors.

3)Reach a Wide Domestic and International Audience through Fan-base Marketing:The Japanese concept of “anime” has become a global cultural phenomenon. The Japanese voice actors who bring anime characters to life boast immense popularity both in Japan and abroad, attracting dedicated fan bases. By utilizing voice actors, games can expand their recognition and user base not only domestically but also internationally. This strategy, coupled with the differentiation factor, can generate substantial marketing benefits.

4)Use of Local Government and Corporate Characters: Companies and local governments often seek ways to better utilize their original characters. Integrating voice actors with game metaverses can infuse these characters with unique personalities and greater appeal. This empowers local governments and companies to reach their target audiences more effectively.

Message from Mondian Co., Ltd. (Representative Director: Takushi Kakuta)

“Many companies, local governments, and organizations have entered the metaverse, generating a variety of content. However, simply publishing 3D models on the Internet isn’t sufficient. To provide more three-dimensional and immersive entertainment, Mondrian is developing a marketing strategy focused on improving the quality of virtual spaces by using voice actors while simultaneously promoting contact with fans and communities. Mondrian will continue to collaborate with the Voice Actor e-Sports Division to make the world of the metaverse even more compelling.”

Message from the Voice Actor e-Sports Division (Representative Director of Object Co., Ltd.: Naoki Yoshimura)

“The Voice Actor e-Sports Division manages an e-sports and game support project alongside Object Co. core business of sound production and casting within the voice actor industry. Fortnite holds immense appeal, not only through its battle royale mode but also in the player-generated worlds of the “Creative Map”. The evolution of these creative spaces has led to even more engaging experiences in recent years. I’ve long envisioned voice actors lending their talents to the characters and announcements within these maps. Object Co. is honored to contribute to the realization of this project. Looking forward to expanding and accelerating this initiative, so please stay tuned.”
