Astral Chain is the latest title from PlatinumGames, the talented makers of action titles like Bayonetta 2, Vanquish, and NieR: Automata. The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic future, where humanity has retreated to one mega-city known as The Ark. Alien creatures called Chimera attack from another dimension called the Astral Plane, and it’s up to you as a police officer to defend humanity.
The futuristic cyberpunk title has a diverse cast of characters, so you might be wondering about the voice actors of Astral Chain’s voice cast. Here they are.
Astral Chain Voice Actors
Akira Howard (Male) – Aleks Le
Aleks Le is fairly new to the world of video games and anime, but you might have heard his voice in something anyway. He played Alexis Deux in the fantasy anime Record of Grancrest War, and Nightmarionne in Five Nights at Freddy’s: Help Wanted. In Astral Chain, Le plays one of the Howard twins, and your brother if your character is female.
Akira Howard (Female) – Brianna Knickerbocker
If you decide to go with a male character, you’ll be hearing the voice of Brianna Knickerbocker as your twin sister Akira.
