After first hearing the probable voice of Ganondorf in Tears of the Kingdom’s second trailer, many were quick to assume the voice actor behind the dulcet tones was noneother than Matthew Mercer. Thankfully Nintendo has now allowed the man in question to spill the beans and give confirmation!

Matthew Mercer is well known for many roles. Fans of tabletop roleplaying will likely recognise him as the Dungeon Master of the long-running Critical Role podcast, but in terms of video gaming you may know him as Yusuke in Persona 5, Chrom in Fire Emblem Awakening, Cassidy in Overwatch, Edér in Pillars of Eternity, and many, many more.
We’ll just have to wait and see where he takes Ganondorf as the character’s first English voice actor when The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom launches on May 12th, 2023!
