438 – 20th Anniversary
Tuesday, September 18 — 10:00 AM
Today’s comic is dedicated to all the long-time fans of Kirby who’ve been shocked by one of the (surprisingly many) horrifying moments of the series. Seriously, possessed Adeleine from Kirby 64 is unnerving stuff!
But that aside, congratulations to our favorite pink blob thing for 20 years of entertainment! Kirby was one of many series that I grew up with, from Kirby’s Dream Land (which my brother bought as soon as it came out), to Kirby Super Star–still my favorite in the series–all the way to the adorably charming Epic Yarn and the polished fun of Return to Dream Land. Thanks for all the good memories, and here’s to more years of fun and nightmares to come!
By the way, the Dream Collection is excellent and contains some of the best Kirby platformers out there. If you’re a big fan, it’s hard to go wrong with this compilation and the nifty included bonuses: an art/history booklet of almost 50 pages, and a 45-track CD.
You know what I think? I think that Matthew should be the official voice of Phoenix Wright for the English version of Professor Layton Vs. Ace Attorney.
Check out Matthew’s voice work as Phoenix in the below video that he made with the cast of the Phoenix Wright Musical Project.
Also, listen to this song for an example of Matthew’s singing as Phoenix.
This idea started with a post made on our friend’s Tumblr account. She also posted about it on the Capcom Unity forums. After reading her idea, I was so moved by the truth of her words that I had to make this post to see how popular such an idea might be with the other fans out there.
Honestly, I think that Matthew’s Phoenix voice is way better than the one that Capcom used in Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, so I think it’d be awesome if Capcom took notice of Matthew’s voice talents. In our friend’s words, “Matthew’s voice has the weight of a serious male protagonist that maintains an edge of lovable goofiness, bolstered by a strong dramatic delivery and impeccable comic timing.”
I mean, okay, Capcom probably doesn’t look around on the internet for voice actors, but this is a role Matthew was born to play.
P.S.: This post was not made with Matthew’s knowledge, nor did he have anything to do with asking Capcom to hire him as a voice actor, even though he would totally be an awesome voice actor. Surprise, buddy!
