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.
