Last night, Square Enix announced Kingsglaive, a splashy CGI movie connected to Final Fantasy XV which will feature big-deal Hollywood actors in major roles. But the talent best known for playing characters in Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad won’t be playing those parts in the actual game.
In a tweet from earlier today, Square Enix dashed hopes that Game of Thrones’ Sean Bean and Lena Headey and Aaron Paul of Breaking Bad would also be voicing King Regis, Luna and Nyx in Final Fantasy XV.
The movie is set during the road trip that the game’s main character Noctis takes and will show what’s happening back in the kingdom of Lucis.
In an age where Hollywood actors regularly portray characters in video games, it’s weirder for them not to be in this one when they’ll be in a movie tied to it. Here’s hoping it’s not going to be too jarring to have two renditions of the same characters in Kingsglaive and FFXV.
