Stepping into the Shadow
You may not recognize the name Alejandro Saab, but you’re probably quite familiar with his body of work. Saab has lent his vocal talents to Leon in Pokémon Journeys: The Series, Yuri in Fire Emblem: Three Houses, and Jules in Final Fantasy VII Remake, along with plenty of other roles.
While Saab has never been asked to voice a Sonic character, it turns out he’s quite a fan of the franchise. For a bit of fun, Saab took to Twitter to share a demo reel of what it would be like if he stepped into the shoes of Shadow the Hedgehog. You can hear his take on the character below.
Sounds like a pretty great job to me! Saab definitely has a voice and tone that works well with Shadow, and his voice acting chops add a bit of depth as well. If SEGA is out to find a new voice for Shadow in the games or animated features, they might want to look Saab’s way!
