    Benefits of using voice actors in Metaverse games

    1) Improve content appeal: Voice acting by skilled voice actors brings characters to life and increases the overall creative level of the game. This allows users to have a more enjoyable and immersive gaming experience.

    2) Differentiate yourself from competitors in the Metaverse: Voice actors are still rare in Metaverse games, allowing your brand's content to stand out from the competition.

    3) Reach a wide domestic and international audience through fan-based marketing: The Japanese concept of “anime” has become a global cultural phenomenon. Japanese voice actors who bring anime characters to life are extremely popular both domestically and internationally, attracting passionate fans. By using voice actors, games can expand their recognition and user base not only in Japan but also overseas. Combining this strategy with differentiators can yield significant marketing benefits.

    4) Utilization of local government/corporate characters: Companies and local governments often seek ways to utilize original characters. By integrating voice actors with your game's metaverse, you can imbue these characters with unique personalities and greater appeal. This allows local governments and businesses to effectively reach their target audience.

But it also has a huge appeal within the game: the world of “creative maps” created by players. The evolution of these creative spaces has led to more engaging experiences in recent years. For years, I've envisioned voice actors lending their talents to the characters and announcements within these maps.
