While Ganon has served as the main enemy in the most of Legend of Zelda games, Tears of the Kingdom will be the first time we hear him utter whole sentences in a spoken role. We’ve heard him chuckle and laugh in games like Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker, but in the next Zelda, he’ll be uttering ominous things. Who plays Ganon in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom?
Who is the voice actor for Ganon in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom?
Unfortunately, there is no definitive information on who the voice of Ganon in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom belongs to as of this writing. Outside of the teaser, which features the first sample of Ganon’s voice, Nintendo has provided little information on the matter.
With that said, it’s difficult to deny that the Ganon voice sounds eerily similar whether you’ve played a lot of video games, seen animated programs and shows, or are a Dungeons & Dragons enthusiast. Many people believe Matthew Mercer is the voice of Ganon in Tears of the Kingdom.
While the short film of Ganon speaking to his minions appears to be coming from Mercer’s mouth, it is vital to note that he has spoken nothing on the matter. Having said that, this might indicate even more to his being the voice.
Because so many people assume it’s him, Matt Mercer has been trending on Twitter since the trailer’s release. Even coworkers have tagged him in tweets claiming to know his voice, but he has not reacted. Mercer is a long-time voice actor professional; if he is bound by an NDA, he cannot speak on the matter. However, if he had known it wasn’t him, we believe he would have come out and disputed it by now.
Take all of this with a grain of salt until the official announcement, but we’d think there’s a high likelihood Matt Mercer will be voicing Ganon in Tears of the Kingdom.
