As with any Nintendo game, oftentimes the voices behind the characters are what brings them to life and that isn’t going to change with the latest Zelda game. But, who are the Tears of the Kingdom voice actors and cast members who are returning to voice their iconic characters or brand new faces?
Below, you can find a proper deep dive into each one ahead of our The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom review later this month. On top of who plays these characters, you can find some projects they have appeared in and where you may have heard their voices before.
Tears of the Kingdom voice actors
All of The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom voice actors and cast members are:
- Kengo Takanashi – Link
- Patricia Summersett – Princess Zelda
- Matthew Mercer – Ganondorf
- Elizabeth Maxwell – Riju
- Jamie Mortarello – Sidon
- Joe Hernandez – Yunobo
- Sean Chiplock – Teba
- Christina Vee – Tulin
Kengo Takanashi – Link
Kengo Takanashi is the long-time voice of Link in Japan since the release of Breath of the Wild and he once again returns here. Bringing his voice to the protagonist, we will no doubt hear him in some poignant scenes as he seeks to save Hyrule and rescue Zelda.
In addition to the Zelda series, Kengo has appeared in other games like Scarlet Nexus, The King of Fighters XV, and Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty. Kengo has also acted and lent his voice to a variety of TV shows too.
Patricia Summersett – Princess Zelda
Announcing the role on Twitter, Patricia has confirmed she is reprising her role as Zelda in Tears of the Kingdom, and from the last trailer for the game, she is doing a great job.
Patricia has appeared in a number of other games too, voicing Ash in the Rainbow Six games, and appearing as one of the Pilot voices in Star Wars Squadrons. But, she has also taken on some TV roles including in Transplant and Three Pines. But, undoubtedly, she will deliver an incredible performance in Tears of the Kingdom with its heightened focus on the story.
Matthew Mercer – Ganondorf
If you don’t know who Matthew Mercer is where have you been? He is the voice of almost everyone you have ever heard of in games. From Cobb in Return to Monkey Island to Chrom in Fire Emblem, to Cassidy in Overwatch to a number of other games developed both in the West and Japan.
Here he brings Ganondorf to life as the series’ villain is back in his full form and ferociousness. With Ganondorf being the main villain, we can expect Matthew to deliver a killer performance.
Elizabeth Maxwell – Riju
Ritu is once again back alongside the other descendants and we can expect Elizabeth Maxwell to return, although this hasn’t been confirmed yet.
Most recently, Elizabeth played Natasha in Hoyoverse’s Honkai Star Rail which has taken the world by storm, but she has also lent her voice to other characters. These include Winter in RWBY Arrowfell. But, her body of work expands beyond into a number of TV shows as well.
Jamie Mortarello – Sidon
Sidon also returns here and we can also expect Jamie Mortarello to voice them once again. Although not confirmed as the voice as Jamie was the voice director on Breath of the Wild, if he does come back Jamie will undoubtedly deliver another great performance.
Since Breath of the Wild, Jamie has worked on God of War Ragnarok, Octopath Traveler 2, and a number of other big releases.
Sean Chiplock – Teba
As the voice of Teba in Breath of the Wild, the character is likely to return and if so, we can expect Sean to as well. Since the first game, Sean has voiced Nero in Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion, Pirro in Octopath Traveler 2, and a number of other characters in games.
Christina Vee – Tulin
Tulin is the younger child of Teba and we got a glimpse of them in the last trailer for the RPG. Christina has been in a number of games and shows, most recently voicing Nell in Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp. Although her role as Tulin hasn’t been confirmed, if she does return her performance will bring the character to life once again.
So there you have it, the full list of all The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom voice actors and cast members. Both new characters and returning cast members make an appearance in this sequel and throughout the game. And, if you want even more details on Hyrule, then you can take a look at all the new and mysterious The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom powers Link can use.
