The voice of FemShep and Samus Aran steps up.

PlatinumGames has confirmed Hellena Taylor - the voice of Bayonetta in the first two games, Super Smash Bros.

Ultimate and the animated movie Bayonetta: Bloody Fate - will not be reprising her role in Bayonetta 3.

Speaking to Game Informer, director Yusuke Miyata explained how "various overlapping circumstances" meant Taylor was unable to return for the third outing.

The company held casting auditions, and that's how Jennifer Hale scored the role.

“Various overlapping circumstances made it difficult for Hellena Taylor to reprise her role.

We held auditions to cast the new voice of Bayonetta and offered the role to Jennifer Hale, whom we felt was a good match for the character?

I’m confident that her portrayal of Bayonetta will exceed our fans’ expectations.”.

Jennifer Hale has had an incredibly successful career so far doing voice-overs for all sorts of games.

For Nintendo fans, she also voiced Samus Aran in the three main Metroid Prime games.

Hellena Taylor first hinted she might not be reprising the role of Bayonetta in September last year.

One other fun fact - Bayonetta's VA in the Japanese version of Bayonetta 3 is still voiced by Atsuko Tanaka.

When he’s not paying off a loan to Tom Nook, Liam likes to report on the latest Nintendo news and admire his library of video games.

His favourite Nintendo character used to be a guitar-playing dog, but nowadays he prefers to hang out with Judd the cat?

Voicing Samus in the Metroid Prime games, as the article points out, and also Jennifer voiced Avatar Kyoshi in Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra, as another notable role I've heard her in, so she has some range.

They either recast the voice because they're going to do some sort of plot twist involving her being a different character, or they recast it because the VA didn't want to return, couldn't return, or they just didn't want her to return.

That with Hellena Taylor practically outright saying for like, over a year that she wasn't going to be in the new game, one could draw basically any other conclusion than what you're implying.

Jennifer Hale is a great VA as well.

I haven't played Bayonetta but Hale is an excellent voice actress so there shouldn't be anything to worry about.

I hope that she plays Samus again down the line, if Samus is ever forced to have extended lines again.

It’s Jennifer Hale, the role is in good hands (vocal chords)?

I remember when the big recasting of Solid Snake happened in MGS5 his japanese voice actor didnt change.

@Tsuchinoko Yeah, that also makes me of Kiyoshi Kobayashi voicing Jigen in Lupin III until just last year.

Japanese culture is very different when it comes to having voice actors reprise their role for as long as they physically are able to.

Great choice, though for games as over-the-top as this one, I'd prefer to see this as an anime game and listen to Bayonetta's Japanese voice instead.

I appreciate Taylor for voicing Bayonetta for all those games.

As for the change, Jennifer Hale is great, so no big deal there.

A shame since Taylor basically made the character all her own in the first two games but Hale is voice-over royalty that will no doubt do Bayo justice so can't really complain over that recast.

Still sad to see Taylor go but not any less excited for 3.

@Yodalovesu Jeniffer Hale did the grunt sound for Samus and recorded a cut monolog in the opening of Metroid Prime 1.

i wonder what prevented Helena Taylor for voicing Bayonetta in Bayonetta 3.

i gonna miss her fatantic voice as Bayonetta, at least Platinum Games choose a amazing voice actress to voice Bayonetta in her place!

@Tsuchinoko Unfun fact, Hideo Kojima tried to replace the English Voice Actor for Snake, David Hayter, as early as MGS3.

He had to readdition for the role multiple times over multiple games, being chosen each time.

I really thought the voice work on the first two was something that made a ridiculous character work

@VoidofLight People have been speculating that the Bayonetta we've seen so far might be...different in this one

But, as for Bayonetta, I've personally been a fan of Jennifer Hale for a very long time, so I'll press on with the game

Yea, if you're gonna replace Bayo's voice with anyone, Jennifer is a great solution

And here I thought they were talking about Alésia Glidewell, who voiced Samus in the Super Smash Bros

She used such an accent when voicing Krystal in both Star Fox: Assault and the Super Smash Bros

Although, Jessica Martin, who voiced Samus in Metroid: Other M, can also do a British accent, as heard in her voice-over demo reel on her website

If in the first place people wasn't quite sure in the trailers if it was Taylor or not voice acting Bayonetta then I think all is good

If we were really keen and adamant on the actual person + her voice for the character and still wasn't sure from the footage then that already says things

It's apparent that most people either just wants Taylor (biased maybe?) to voice the character (regardless of how she delivers) or just the voice/acting

Cuz I remember in the trailer comments people just assumed and were like "yes, it's hellena taylor omg!!!"

She has now voiced Samus and Bayonetta, very cool
