Starfield Has Over Thrice As Many Voice Actors As Skyrim

Starfield will feature the company's "largest translation ever", says Todd Howard.

Starfield is the upcoming RPG from Bethesda Softworks and one of the company’s first new franchises to be made in more than 25 years. Since its announcement at E3 2018 in June 2018, players have been anxiously waiting for the game’s release. Now, Todd Howard, the director and executive producer at Bethesda Game Studios, has confirmed that the game will feature complete Japanese translation, including voiceovers.

Earlier today, Todd Howard appeared at the Tokyo Game Show 2021 with some new information about the upcoming Starfield. While he did not reveal much, he did say that the game will feature way more voice actors and dialogue lines than The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. He also mentioned that this is the company’s “largest translation ever,” in his announcement.

“Happy to tell you all that yes, it’s gonna’ be fully translated and voiced in Japanese. It’s our largest translation ever. Over 300 actors and over a hundred and fifty thousand lines of dialogue. Can’t wait for you all to play it, thanks for everything,” he said.

For reference, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim only had around 70 voice actors and 60,000 dialogue lines. The more recent Cyberpunk 2077 from CD Projekt RED had over 150 voice actors and 100,000 dialogue lines. Starfield will not only have more than double the voice actors and dialogue lines than Bethesda Game Studios’ 2011 RPG but it will also be much bigger in production value than many current-generation franchises.

So far, there hasn’t been much information about Starfield. However, a development trailer released by Bethesda Softworks in June did give some insight as to what we can expect from the company with this new franchise. Starfield is scheduled to release on 11th November 2022 and we’re excited to see what Bethesda Game Studios has come up with.
