Ever since Vic Mignogna landed into some very hot water, the search to replace him as the English voice dub of Dragon Ball Super’s Broly was on. But who could take his place? Well, thanks to Bandai Namco’s own Dmitryi Khlynin showing off Dragon Ball Super’s Broly before he’s playable in Dragon Ball FighterZ, we know who it is. Here’s a hint, it’s Johnny Yong Bosch!
Check out the recording of the live stream below.
Yes, the same person who starred as Adam Park, the new Black Power Ranger on season two of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. The same person who’s voiced several characters, such as Nero in Devil May Cry IV/V, Zero in Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite, and countless other anime and video game characters. Interesting enough, JYB has been taken over several of Vic’s previous roles, so this change isn’t that surprising.
It would seem that this latest development has the fans of the ironic character, split. Some are enjoying the change-up, while others enjoyed the voice they heard from Dragon Ball Super: Broly. For what it’s worth, I feel that Johnny Yong Bosch’s take on the overpowered Super Saiyan is decent. Any change typically takes time to adjust to, this is no different.
For the moment, Johnny Yong Bosch has voiced DBS Broly, which is set to be released as a new character on December 5th, 2019. There hasn’t been any mention, nor can have I been able to dig up anything regarding Johnny also re-recording the lines for OG Broly, who is also in Dragon Ball FighterZ.
Obviously this begs to ask if Vic’s days as OG Broly are numbered or if Bandai Namco is going to leave the character as he is now. Though with most of Mignogna roles slowing being taken over, who’s to say. We’ve reached out to Funimation to see if the company has any plans to extend the new voice over to the anime as well.
Dragon Ball Super Broly will be available to play in Dragon Ball FighterZ on December 5th, 2019, and will be priced at $4.99.
