Square Enix has announced during the New York Comic Con over the weekend that Matthew Mercer will be voicing Vincent Valentine in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.
As previously reported, Vincent is appearing in the game as a non-playable character although we fully expect him to join your party in the third part of the Final Fantasy VII Remake project. Mercer was rumoured to be voicing him in the English version of the game after some brief dialogue was heard in the latest trailer for the game.
