The Game Announcer, also known as the Ring Announcer, the Narrator, or simply the Announcer, is a voice that provides all of the game's commentary, and has been a main feature throughout the Marvel vs. Capcom series.
Description[edit | edit source]
The game announcer is a disembodied voice. Its exact tone often varies with (and sometimes within) the game and/or series. In Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds, there are two announcers, one male and one female.
The game announcer signals the start and end of a match, among other things. The announcer is also known as the referee of the match.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The announcer in X-Men vs. Street Fighter and Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter and Gambit both are voiced by the same voice actor in-game. They both are voiced by Tony Daniels, who also voiced the latter in Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes and Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes.
- In a similar manner, the announcer in the latter game and Cable both are voiced by Lawrence Bayne in-game.
- Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes is the first and currently the only game where the announcer is entirely female.
- Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds is the first game where it features two announcers, where the male announcer (John Driscoll) is the primary announcer and the female announcer (Kate Higgins) is the battle commentator, the latter who also performed the pre-title sequence before the start of the game.
