A Man of a Thousand Voices |


After reading that Nolan North will be lending his voice acting talents to the North American version of  Sega’s upcoming rpg, Resonance of Fate ( a.k.a. End of Eternity in Japan ) I decided to check and see just how many games North has appeared in.

For me, North was made famous when he took the role of Nathan Drake in the Uncharted series but according to the Nolan North Wiki, he has worked in 78 video games thus far. Several of those games I’ve played without knowing he was in them.  Age of Empires III: The War Chiefs (George Armstrong Custer),Final Fantasy XII (Vossler York Azelas),Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (various voices),Valkyria Chronicles (Musaad Mayfield), and White Knight Chronicles: International Edition (Cyrus).

Besides those games North could also be found in Halo 3, Halo 3:ODST,Halo Wars, Fable II, Gears of War II, Lost Odyssey, Lost Planet, SOCOM, Marvel Ultimate Alliance: 1 & 2, God of War, Call of Duty, Ar tonelico II: Melody of Metafalica , Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time, Dark Void, and more.

Thankfully in most of his works you’d hardly notice it was him behind the voices of these characters, with the acception of maybe Assassin’s Creed and Prince of Persia.  

North is quickly becoming the hardest working voice actor in the indusrty.

    Nolan North is definitely more famous for voicing Nathan Drake than any other game character. It was a little weird having his voice in Assassin’s Creed, it just didn’t fit Desmond.

    as long as he makes a good job 😉
    most voice actors here (in germany) are totally lame, so nearly all characters sounds like boring, uninterested people…

  • As far as I know Nolan is also the first ever voice actor in games that actually didn’t look at games in a derogatory way. Many of his colleagues did games work just to get a bit of a name and then do some tv series or whatever. They never saw it as a full time carreer. I’m happy for Nolan that he could use his talent (being an actor) and make a great carreer for himself just because of games

    Nolan is the man. He would of been perfect in Heavy Rain. Keep doin ya thang.

    He sure gets a lot of work. He probably already has another 5-6 games this year were he’ll provide voice work. Still, it’s not one of the best paid jobs, so he does need to take advantage of all the oportunities.
