That's Gackt. He's a bad, bad man.

Well, he is in upcoming PC role-playing game Dragon Nest. In real life, he is a songwriter, fashion model, actor, novelist, restaurateur, screenwriter and psychic. Gackt once said he was born in the 1540. But now, acknowledges that, yes, he was born in 1973. He actually has a very dry and wonderful sense of humor!

The popular singer is lending his voice to the game, bringing villain Belskard to life and will be singing the game's theme song as well.

At a recent Tokyo press conference, Gackt appeared as Belskard.

This isn't Gackt's first entry into video games. He sang the theme for Wii hack-and-slash game Samurai Warriors 3, "cosplayed" as Final Fantasy VII's Cloud Strife and even lent music to a pachi-slot game for the PS3. His likeness has appeared in past games games Dirge of Cerberus and Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, too.
