You might have been able to guess that if you’ve watched Critical Role.
The voice of Ganondorf may have sounded familiar, and now it’s been made official for the English version of Tears of the Kingdom.
In a social media post this evening, Matthew Mercer announced that he would play the role of Ganondorf in Tears of the Kingdom. Speculation had been running since the voice of Ganondorf was heard in February’s Direct, but Nintendo lifted that portion of the non-disclosure agreement following today’s final trailer.
