Default Clannad PS2 version confirmed

Hot from the Key Official Homepage: Interchannel will be releasing a PS2 version of Clannad this year. I can't find it on Interchannel's site, so no details yet, but presumably it'll be the same deal as usual - identical to the PC version but with voice.

Heh, I did see they'd put Realize in the "for girls" section as well as the "for boys" section... O_O

Well... it does have more male characters than most ren'ai games... but as long as they've found decent female actors to handle Yae and Saya, I shan't complain. (Hmm... Kuwatani Natsuko and someone called Honda Youko...)

Since Clannad was clean, I wonder if there's areas that the PC version will have an advantage over the PS2 version...

This and Utawarerumono (upcoming) and BFPS2 (which I've already bought) is pressing me to buy an actual PS2 <_<

Console release - yayy!

No Dreamcast release - boo!

I gues the system's getting a little past its prime, but still - it's possibly the best platform for visual novel conversions out there. Heck, HaniHani was only released on it last summer, so it can't be getting THAT long in the tooth! Maybe they'll do a port later.

I wonder if the PS2 Clannad will be compatable with that Sony printer featured on Interchannel's pages for Kanon and Air. I gather it lets you print out pictures from the game - CG scenes perhaps, or endings? I must say it's got me intrigued, to say the least.

All I know is I'd hate to be Key right now - they've probably got all the rabid fanboys beating down their door in anticipation of not only PS2 Clannad, but Tomoyo After as well. Heaven knows they don't want to anger the masses with 2 possible slipped release dates this time!

YAY! for Clannad coming to PS2 with voices. I am now quite curious to see who will be voicing which characters. though will the protagonist also be voiced?

I doubt Tomoya's going to be voiced, given how much dialogue he has and conservative Key is. Besides, listening to him moan out loud for the whole game would drive you nuts =P.

I'll be very interested to see who they pick for Sunohara and Akki, though.

I've always wondered why "the man" never gets voiced.
It's like watching a standup comedian but reading his lines in subtitle.

But the general audience don't care about the man's voice at all, I guess.

You can just give him the voice and be able to turn it on/off on the config.
(the default should be off, if you're planning to be conservative)
Oh and a hotkey for the toggle may be a good idea.

But I agree on this...some of the lines are agonizing.

Yukito and Ryuuya were voiced in AIR PS2 - that's an encouraging precedent.

I bet the real hardcore fans would turn the male voice off anyway - so they can read his lines aloud themselves... ;)

Was Ryuuya actually voiced? I thought the only time the main characters received voices was when they were seen in third person. If that's the case, I'm still rather doubtful, as the only perspective in Clannad is Tomoya's point of view (and the character in 幻想世界, I suppose).

うわ~ 
い た す ぎ る

My personal irrational hope is for 仁科りえ and 杉坂 to at least get their own standing pictures. For characters with such a significant role, I've always found it odd that they didn't spend 10 minutes knocking something up for them.

P.S.
I'm not the only Rie fan! Really!

Nope, Yukito and Ryuuya are voiced all the way through, even when you're seeing things from their perspective. (That is, their direct speech is voiced - their narration isn't.)

Interesting indeed... in that case, they really might go ahead with it, especially given that some other makers have been doing the same recently (notably Leaf's Tears to Tiara). I do wonder if there's enough room to keep him voiced for the whole thing, though, given that Clannad has a lot of talking.

I also forgot about the chapter in the past from Shima-kun's point of view. That'd certainly be a simple enough section to voice, even if they weren't going to do Tomoya's parts.

I'd rather call that an embarrasment torture...

Or you can set the protagonist's name to your real name,
and read the girls' lines out loud.
Be sure to have your friends around when you do this :)
