Big Sonic news is new Sonic voice cast

The rumor is correct, the big Sonic news that SEGA has just announced is that Roger Craig Smith will be taking the role of Sonic the Hedgehog. You might remember his voice talent as Chris Redfield (Resident Evil 5), Ezio Auditore da Firenze (Assassin’s Creed 2) and Siegfried Schtauffen (Soulcalibur IV).

He was also the voice for Ted Ustinov, Vyse Inglebard, Johann Oswald Wisen and others in Valkyria Chronicles. That game had good voices, no? Just to make the announcement bigger, they also announced the new voice actors for Tails. Kate Higgins will play tails, she did voices for Naomi and RinRin in MadWorld. Also a ton of voices in Valkyria Chronicles.

It has been confirmed that Mike Pollock will stay as Eggman. Mike Pollock has been voicing Eggman since 2005, after the death of Deem Bristow. Almost every voice actor for the game characters has changed, but we have only seen Sonic and Tails as of yet.

  1. Sonic Stadium is surprisingly positive about it! I'm all for the change and am glad Eggman is unchanged.

  2. Sega Uranus says:

    I liked Griffith's voice for Sonic honestly, it was the serious scenes that ruined him, and those are the kind of scenes that should not even be in Sonic games anyways.

    Tails needed to change though, I hope it is not worse this time around.

    I am not happy that Tails is still being voiced by a girl, I am most intrested in the actor for Knuckles I want a proper African accent this time.

  4. Cubert, little boy voices are very difficult to cast males for. Often the male VA is a kid themself and they grow up, making them useless after one or two games. Take a look at nearly every cartoon kid, the VA is 90% the of the time a female.

  5. Sharky says:

    Yeah, I think it would suck to cast tails as a male VA… Hes supposed to be a little kid and little boys old enough to do good voice acting have around 5 years before there voice breaks.

    Woman that can do male sounding tons are a much better idea… Look at Bart Simpson (english) He's been voice by a woman since the very start.

    YES! Griffith is finally out! I can now listen to Sonic again without wanting to put my fist through the speakers.

    There's nothing wrong with serious scenes, Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 had them. The problem was Griffith!

    I also hope Knuckles stops being Irish from now on.

    Chris Redfield is Sonic? I came…

  8. Kori-Maru says:


    Me too and if they don't like it. They can SUCK IT! Get it? ;P

  9. cube_b3 says:

    Barry I would appreciate you don't fuck around with my name and Corey Bringas was 16 when voicing Tails so his voice was pretty mature and I still think he was the best.

  10. Sharky says:

    Chill out cubecumber! it's only a joke.


  11. SOUP says:

    I support this change

  12. Kori-Maru says:

    Someone needs to make a trailer of RE5 but with Sonic.

  13. Cubicle, you need to chill out. You are welcome to call be Bear, Barrington, Barenaked Ladies, Super Bario or Bartholomew.

    On the subject of Tails VAs, didja know the Tails VA from AoStH was the narrator for Woody Allen's Vicki Christina Barcelona? He sounds exactly like Dan Aykroyd now.

  14. Robbie Rimes says:

    Cubells, Corey Bringas did not stay 16 forever. Probably? Might be dead for all I know. Females voice kids unless they aren't planning for an ongoing thing.

    Either way you need to get a less annoying name if you don't want to be called things like Cublies, Cubby, Q-Bag, Asshat, or Club Cube.
