    Honda Mariko is the Voice Behind Eve, No Straight Roads’ Latest Boss.

    Metronomiks highly anticipated music-based hack-and-slash, No Straight Roads (NSR), revealed its latest boss at last weekend’s Comic Fiesta at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Next up after the shadow-puppetry boss – DK West, comes the colourful two-face Eve.

    Wan Hazmer, CEO, Metronomik, introduced Eve to fans with her voice actress, the popular Japanese seiyuu – Honda Mariko. The Japanese voice actress is known for her work in Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky, as the voice of Lucille Ernella, and in Megadimension Neptunia VII, voicing Uzume Tennouboshi, to name a few.

    Described as a diva, Eve is one of the more unique ‘Evil Bosses’ in the EDM Empire as she has the ability to manipulate reality. She will be one of the bosses that are out to give players a difficult time.

    During the live-stage event, Mariko shared how – at first glance – she thought Eve looked like a Picasso painting and how that created a mature aura for her. “Visually speaking, it was hard for me to figure out what kind of character Eve was. Hence, I initially wanted to give Eve a mature, deep voice, [something] that would usually fit a mature character. But Hazmer told me that Eve is very complex – a more than meets the eye sort. In the end, I decided to go for a sexier voice instead.”

    During this visit to Malaysia, Mariko took the opportunity to visit Metronomik’s office and played the game herself. She revealed that, personally, she was more used to RPG, and NSR gave her a new experience. Even so, it was easy to pick up and really fun to play. “If I can play NSR, I think anybody can!” she added.

    Hazmer also mentioned that NSR will include the Japanese audio for all versions of the game, meaning it will not be limited to Japan only. Considering that the game boasts not only Mariko, but also popular names like Fukuyama Jun and Ayane Sakura, the news of this is much welcomed.

    He also mentioned that the game would also include, not only English subtitles, but also Bahasa Melayu (BM), making it one of the few games that will offer the option to use Japanese audio with BM subtitles.

    No Straight Roads will, tentatively, be out in early 2020.
