Akira Toriyama’s Sand Land Debuts English Voice Cast
The Fiend Prince Beelzebub and his band of misfit companions are getting ready to introduce game players everywhere to SAND LAND, the upcoming action RPG based on the manga by Akira Toriyama, creator of DRAGON BALL™ and DR. SLUMP. For players in the West, it’s time to meet the English VO cast that is bringing Beelzebub and his rag-tag crew to life. An updated story trailer released today by Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc. highlights the cast’s voices. It gives a glimpse at another key moment from the game, where the crew is searching for the Legendary Spring – a prophesied body of water that would provide drinking water to the desert wasteland and save its inhabitants from the greed of the water-hoarding King of Sand Land.
SAND LAND characters are brought to life for English-speaking fans by the following talented cast of VO actors:
Beelzebub: The Fiend Prince is taking to the desert wastelands for water. Though he typically seeks the latest video games or the perfect prank to play on his friends, Beelzebub takes on a more heroic role with Rao to help all the wasteland inhabitants. Beelzebub is voiced by Risa Mei.
Rao: Sporting a jaunty hat paired with a mean pair of shorts and knee-high socks to complete his off-duty but ready-for-action look, Rao is one of the good guys. Tired of seeing his fellow humans suffer under the King of Sand Land’s water hoarding, Rao seeks out the demons’ help to find fresh water. John Lipow voices Rao.
Thief: One of Beelzebub’s loyal advisors and a crafty demon, Thief naturally has a penchant for stealing. But on top of his sticky fingers, Thief is also as strong as he is wise. He can use his cunning intellect to help the group overcome any obstacle. Owen Thomas voices thief.
Lucifer: Beelzebub’s father and the king of all demons. Lucifer spurs on Beelzebub to take on Rao’s request (and forbids him from playing video games until he finishes his tasks). Keith Silverstein voices Lucifer.
General Are: As one of the top soldiers in the Sand Land Royal Army, General Are is a persistent thorn in the side of Rao. General Are is voiced by Andrew Lander.
Supreme Commander Zeu: Players will have to learn more about Supreme Commander Zeu as they progress through the story, but it would be safe to assume that Zeu is one nasty dude. Shawn Smith voices Supreme Commander Zeu.
In SAND LAND, Beelzebub and his rag-tag crew of demons and humans must roam the wastelands on foot or in various combat-capable vehicles to uncover the many secrets dragging down this post-apocalyptic world. Traverse the desert on foot or in vehicles, experience an exciting mix of action, hand to hand- and vehicular combat, uncover secrets to overcome obstacles, and take on a diverse assortment of mighty foes in order to save the day – and ultimately get un-grounded by your father, Lucifer, so you can play video games again. SAND LAND is coming to PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam®.
