Who plays Kena’s voice in Kena Bridge of Spirits – Cast list
If you’ve seen any of the trailers, you should be pretty excited about the prospect of Kena: Bridge of Spirits, but you might also be wondering who is playing Kena’s voice. The character is essentially a young spirit guide who must uncover the truth behind an abandoned village in the shadow of a sacred mountain shrine.
With such a story-driven concept, Kena has a lot to say, so here’s a look at who’s playing who in the first game from developers Ember Lab. It includes Corrupt Spirit Taro, Spirit Guide Rusu’s mentor, Little Saiya, and the towering Trapped Spirit Toshi, who you may have seen in the Horned Mask in the trailers.
Who plays who in the cast of Kena: Bridge of Spirits
The main character is voiced by newcomer Dewa Ayu Dewi Larassanti, known as Ayu, and perhaps most impressively, she makes her voiceover debut for the role. She is a Balinese artist whose mother Emiko is an actress, so she coached her throughout the process of recording the game.
Ayu performs with traditional musicians and dancers from her village in a group called Çudamani, which features prominently in the score of Kena: Bridge of Spirits. Apparently her favorite game is Mario Kart, so she has at least a little gaming experience, but she is currently studying World Arts and Culture at the University of California Los Angeles so she probably doesn’t have much time. for COD and Fortnite all-nights.
The Trapped Mind is played by Masashi Odate. He’s known for his physical theater work and martial arts, so he should create some really cool scenes once the game starts. His credits include The Last Samurai starring Tom Cruise, Wii sword fighter Red Steel, and the short film Monsters Roll.
Playing the voice of a mind corrupted by pain during his mortal life is not an easy character to play, so Tod Fennell has his work cut out for him. It will be up to Ken to help him unravel everything to free him. The Canadian actor was also the voice of Chevel in Monster Hunter Stories 2: The Wings of Ruin, Bean in Far Cry New Dawn and Mason Weems in Assassin’s Creed 3.
Kena’s hunter and guide, Rusu is played by Alan Adelberg, whose previous credits include Marvel Avengers Academy. As a hunter, Rusu has a lot of skill with the bow, which he shares with Kena as the journey unfolds.
Finally, there’s Saiya, whom Kena meets at the start of the Bride of Spirits story. She is voiced by Sam Cavallaro and she will clearly play an important role in the direction the game takes. The character has taken it upon himself to protect his younger brother from the monsters lurking in the forest.
Obviously, as with any bunch of characters, the real test is how they work together and watching the trailer could be the start of a whole new series with comparisons to Horizon Forbidden West if it is. followed by a sequel. If you haven’t seen much of the action, you can check out the gameplay in the video below.
It also ends with the cinematic trailer, which swirls further into the storyline of Kena: Bridge of Spirits, with the ability to hear a bit more of the voice actors. You can figure it out from the 6:45 mark in the video, which builds up until Kena’s first encounter with her group of assistants, little Rot.
She also meets the dean of the village, and if you’re wondering who plays her voice, it’s Czech actor Vlasta Vrana. As you can see, things get pretty dark from then on and there will clearly be a lot of action to go along with the storytelling.
