No solo Carrie Fisher, o más conocida como la Princesa Leia de Star Wars, será una de las voces principales de Dishonored. También, la importantísima Susan Sarandon será parte de el elenco que le dará las voces a los personajes de este juego.
Además de las dos super estrellas antes mencionadas, Michael Madsen (KillBill … el hermano de Bill, ya saben), John Slattery (Mad Men) y Chloë Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass), serán parte, entre otros, de las voces para los personajes de Dishonored.
Esto de contratar superactores del cine gringo se ha convertido en una costumbre dentro del ambiente gamer, incluyendo memorables participaciones como las de Samuel L. Jackson en Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas y, mejor aún, en su papel de “Afro” para el notable Afro Samurai.
En fin, creo que el crossover entre el cine y los videojuegos ya está completo. No hay nada más que hacer al respecto.
A la vuelta del salto, viene el comunicado oficial con los detalles. Dishonored para PC, Xbox 360 y PS3 el 9 de octubre de 2012.
