In spite of this, getting a symphonic score is still expensive. The rules in English are immensely complicated and inconsistent. They're comparing making a bespoke 3D model of a character as opposed to scanning an actual person, saying similarly you could just create a voice from scratch rather than record a real one. and it feels like you’re fading in and out of understanding the language as they speak [1], which is in fitting with the surreal style of the game and presumably intentional. To me it does sound exactly like that too in English. The problem is that English is a phonetically inconsistent language, with a massive number of rules required to even begin to approximate the mapping from text to phonemes (and zillions of exceptions). Yeah that makes sense. The big problem for a lot of skills is that the production capacity of a human is not high enough to pay for that fixed cost or just barely profitable enough for the top 10000 humans to have a career in this skill. Nintendo was definitely talking with Rareware at the time and they exchanged ideas and techniques on game engine design, platformer mechanics, etc. Or maybe it was and they tweaked it well enough to work. Oh wow that’s so interesting! It did work in English though. If a language is clearly not English I don't have the same issue. It's TTS.

It was originally used because young French people wanted to sing the English songs that they heard, but didn't know the language, so they would make up sounds that looked like English. It's been a while, my memory could be off. The tools for making 3D models are getting better and easier to use, and as photogrammetry is being used more and more, we see larger teams of modelers, not smaller. English spelling is inconsistent. Luigi's mansion 3 does something similar, I wouldn't be surprised if it's using the same or similar technology under the hood. I first realized what they were doing when talking to Blathers.

And because it's pretty monotone and consistent. That would bring about a new boom (pun) of creativity by allowing indie devs to write complex stories with spoken dialogue without having to worry about hiring actors and immutable recording sessions.

Japanese is not my native language and I noticed immediately; any native would have too. In the English versions of City Folk and New Leaf, the characters read the text in speech bubbles one letter at a time, which is sped up and slightly garbled. I'm a very strong English speaker/listener. If we want 3D models, someone has to make them. I don't think it was TTS because it was too accurate in a really subtle way.

Written Japanese lacks pitch accent information, but otherwise works similarly. Even if it was just the timing and intonation, it could definitely be understood that the lines were actually being spoken in some form. I guess I figured they could have processed the spoken audio, not that the actors would have actually talked like that. I don't know if it would have been prohibitive on the GameCube to have audio of every line (there were a lot), but I wouldn't put it past them to have done so. His name comes from the archaic exclamation "egad," something that one says in … If you have an article, a book, movie, song, recipe, product, website, etc., that you would like to see reviewed here, simply submit it for consideration on the contact form below.

I'd wager it's more obvious in the Japanese version because Japanese is the exceptional language. So this kind of really dumb TTS not intended to be actually intelligible doesn't work at all in English. A 3D scanner is an artist’s tool. That's the whole point of this system, to provide some fun sounding audio for the lines without having to actually dub them. However in that game it always quite interesting listening to the TTS because the script an NPC is reading seems to be a paraphrased from the subtitle (and maybe partially complete gibberish?)

I'm curious if that's the same for other games that do similar "gibberish" sounds like Mario Odyssey and Zelda games - I do think the gibberish "sounds" englishy.

By using a 3D scanner, you aren’t getting rid of artists, you are just changing how artists do their jobs. It did work in English though. I just realised this account posted the same video with the non-distorted speech too [1]. Oh wow that’s so interesting! Review This has 18 Contributors who are constantly writing reviews on a variety of topics. I imagine it's not likely a games company can build a massively lead in what is a very academic field. Bossa" is a K.K. Interviews from the Rare side admitted this (I'll need to dig up some sources to include here).
