It took a little bit, but LEGO Jurassic World is finally confirmed for a Switch launch in Japan. The title is set for launch on Nov. 21st, 2019, and is priced at ¥4,950. Warner Bros. is handling publishing duties, and this version should be exactly the same as in other regions.
For a long time, LEGO games weren't voice acted, outside of various grunts, groans, and laughs. Things eventually shifted to fully-voiced dialog, and longtime series fans miss the days of simpler voice acting. Is there any chance a feature like that could come back for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga? According to James McLoughlin, Game Director of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, it's not out of the question.
GameStop interviewed Mr. McLoughlin, who addressed the many, man fan requests for more simple voice acting. While it's not a feature in the game, TT Games has definitely heard the requests, and the topic will at least be discussed. Ideas such as being able to turn the voice acting off, or going back to grunts, were at least floated during the interview. I guess we'll have to cross our fingers and hope for the best!
